You were one of the million scared
waiting for your time to come
you're all talk and all yearning
summon the will to take
a chance that it's arrived
and will stay burning

if we take to the sky 
they'll shoot us down
If so, I'll try to remain
and not break away

Whatever the stillness shakes
up in your archive of
shock from the world
steel it and raise the stakes
and brace for your arrival

Take to the sky what
should've been launched
a long time ago
shove off and start
just a little bit less grip

Let go, block out the world
and go hurtling headlong
so you can feel alive
alone, this is what it feels like
hurtling headlong
I hope I never learn
I hope I never burn out

Pry your fingers from the edge  
not long you'l feel the wind
forget about the descent
moving towards this your whole life
need a nudge to find
courage to defeat
the doubt you're free to dive
from clear across the expanse
leave your old body behind for the time

Some of them made their escapes
racing over miles of earth
but I'd tire from that pace
Maybe a grave mistake, whoa
well in light of it
I'm tired from the pain
I'm not making chase

No not today
plummet to the earth
not today
know what you are worth
not today
welcome your birth now
won't you ever learn?
I hope you never burn out

For all who feel starved
on a binge of emptiness
wait 'til you feel it, you'll like it
hurtling headlong

For all failed starts
are you hinging on the edge
sweet and final
hurtling headlong
alone, alive, one of a million saved
block out the world
