I smile in hindsight 
When round I come 
At the ease I left with 
My shackles undone

I stepped off the side 
And my wings did beat
My eyes they did close
As the ground left my feet 

So with nothing behind me
But a blink of my eyes 
My body it sinks
And my soul starts to fly

With a crease of my brow
My mind takes to soaring 
With my feet out in front 
I can begin my exploring 

But all to quickly
My feathers fall screaming 
And I'm left high and dry
Staring up at the ceiling
