MY FALL - words & music by Nate Butler
She's going up today, she tried it out in secret
She's gonna go up so high, to be the higher she gets
She's got a set of wings that never beat in the heat
She takes the jump and thinks lots of other things
But the wings of wax and sun are going to meet, duet

Gravity, she defies it -- got to fly to the sun now
But when she realizes, she'll be too high to come down, go 'round
Talk about profound
My ... she's going to fall into the ocean
My ... she's going to fall

He's got it organized, and appointments tonight
He's not anal-retentive, but the cat couldn't swing to save his life
He's got a list of things to help him make decisions
And he's got three rings to make up his mind to get up
Or let the answering machine do it -- screw it

I've got a stack of papers to be filed that might stretch a mile
Time, I can never find it -- what's it gonna be now?
Fine, go 'round -- talk about profound
My ... he's got it all, he's got it all
My ... he's got it all, he's got it all
My ...

People are all surprises, and any can be
People come in all sizes, the choices are free
But I'm not yet decided which one is me, I to be?
Should I wait to see?

My ... I'm going to fall into the ocean
My ... I'm going to fall, I'm going to fall
My ... I'm going to fall, I'm going to fall
My ... fall
