Golden Gate Jumpers

Album: Loyalty To Loyalty (2008)
  • Thick fog rolls in waves
    On the Golden Gate
    I was checking my watch
    With seven minutes in my shift

    When I spot a black skirt on the rail
    Straddling the bar like it's a quarter a ride
    She's scared to jump but terrified to stay
    Walk to her slow extend my hand with a smile and say

    "Ma'am how was your day?
    Keep your eyes on my face
    I want to help you
    If you'll let me"

    She's startled, I look forward
    Wrap my arms 'round her legs
    Pull her down to the sidewalk
    We're both heaving for air and I say

    "Ma'am how was your day?
    Keep your eyes on my face
    I want to help you
    If you'll let me"

    Most folks think they'll hit the surface
    And never, feel no pain
    Water pulls you under
    Back to the womb once again

    Bodies float to the shore
    Bloated purple and blue
    If sharks won't get you first
    Crabs will have their way with you Writer/s: JONATHAN RUSSELL, MATTHEW AVEIRO, MATTHEW MAUST, NATHAN WILLETT
