Lyrics

Fly

Written By: Mark Risius

Fly

Life at times
Seems to melt down all around me
Forms a pool beneath my feet
Should I swim
Should I drown
Or should I just tread water

Well I would rather fly, high

I don’t seem to have access to that as much as I’d like
I feel I must dive into the depths of my being
With all it’s raw fear and rage and embarrassing imperfections
And I wonder if it’s the belief in perfection that weighs me down

Well I would rather fly, high
