Flying

Album: Collide0Scope (2003)
  • This song is a tribute to the 9/11 tragedy in 2001, as evidenced by the lines "I jumped out the window to get to the parking lot, I'm writing this little song on my way down, never in my life have I felt a heat so hot, I had to get out." This refers to the people who jumped from their windows to escape the building - the heat is the jet fuel burning. >>
