I begin to assemble what weapons I can find, Cause sometimes to stay alive you gotta kill your mind.

The air was cold, altitude high

Atop the tower that reaches the sky


There stands a boy, scared and shaking

Hands clenched tight, heart so close to breaking


His mind buzzing with thoughts of worry and fear

He can't seem to recall how he got up here


As he leans over, a force pulls him down

He latches tightly to the railing, for one last piece of hope he's found


What a wonder he is, living life on the edge

A boy of danger out of fear is the boy on ledge
