    How should I interpret them?
    ----------------------------------------------------------------
    We live in a mountain
    Right at the top
    There's a beautiful view
    From the top of the mountain
    Every morning I walk towards the edge
    And throw little things off
    Like
    Car-parts, bottles, and cutlery
    Or whatever I find lying around

    I go through all this
    Before you wake up
    So I can feel happier
    To be safe up here with you
    It's real early morning
    No-one is awake
    I'm back at my cliff
    Still throwing things off
    I listen to the sounds they make
    On their way down
    I follow with my eyes 'til they crash
    Imagine what my body would sound like
    Slamming against those rocks

    When it lands
    Will me eyes
    Be closed or open?

    I go through all this
    Before you wake up
    So I can feel happier
    To be safe up here with you
