“The Final Fall” (Downham, Smith)

The ebb and flow
The rise and fall
The systematics of it all
The up and down
The list and lurch
You’re laughing in a burning church

I’m sorry, I didn’t mean it
I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to demean it
I’m sorry, I’ve already been it
I’m sorry, you’ve already seen it

On the brink of the final fall . . .

Backwards, forwards, upside-downwards
Backwards, forwards, upside-downwards
I’m testing my will in the water
Step back and let me breathe
Just besting my skill in the water
Creep back and let me leave
Backwards, forwards, upside-downwards
Backwards, forwards, upside-downwards

On the brink of the final fall . . .

This is my account
This is my account of the end
This is my account of the end of you world
I’ve seen it in my dreams
Reflected in the water

On the brink of the final fall . . .
