  • Hate me when I'm gone, I'll make it worth your while when I'm successful
    But when I'm here I need your kindness cause the climb is always stressful
    Clumsily gasp myself by thinking I'll be better off alone
    I'll leave my peace in pieces all around the decent people back at home

    'Cause I'm a big boy an adult now or nearly
    If I pull the wool back from my eyes I can see clearly
    The world is at my feet and I am standing on the ceiling
    And I fall, fall, fall, when it all comes down
    And I won't be crushed by the weight of this town
    I fall from the sky but I won't fall forever
    I fall but when I'll rise I'll be stronger than ever

    Official man, delusions grand and now I'm a free agent
    I'm here to make a stand for causes I don't understand and make a statement
    I fall short on knowledge, I don't even watch the news
    Can't be arsed with college, it's nothing but a human zoo

    'Cause I'm a big boy an adult now or nearly
    If I pull the wool back from my eyes I can see clearly
    The world is at my feet and I am standing on the ceiling
    And I fall, fall, fall, when it all comes down
    And I won't be crushed by the weight of this town
    I fall from the sky but I won't fall forever
    I fall but when I'll rise I'll be stronger than ever

    I'm not defeated, I believe that I can turn this ship around
    Destroy the status quo until I know I found a common ground
    I'm not alone, I'm just focused in my zone, this is easy
    I'm fine, I just need time to turn this into home, I'm good, believe me
    Believe me when I say I'm gonna be

    Big explosions crack through thunderous mountains
    Hearts exploding, minds, volcanoes pop and blow
    I'm not alone, I'm not alone
    Who am I kidding? I'm sad, no ideas coming
    It's driving me mad and I'm fighting it
    It's turning me bad, I'm loaded, pages taking me over
    I just wanna be home with all my friends and family
    Mum and dad, it's closing in on me, I need recovery, coming home
    I'm coming home and I need closure, I need closure

    'Cause I'm a big boy an adult now or nearly
    If I pull the wool back from my eyes I can see clearly
    The world is at my feet and I am standing on the ceiling
    And I fall, fall, fall, when it all comes down
    And I won't be crushed by the weight of this town
    I fall from the sky but I won't fall forever
    I fall but when I'll rise I'll be stronger than ever Writer/s: CHRIS CROWHURST, RALEIGH RITCHIE
