Track Name: Boeing 747
I jumped off a Boeing 747 just to see if I could fly
Clouds go by so fast
Strange I'm so relaxed
Strange I'm so relaxed

I jumped off a Boeing 747, 47 seconds past
Like falling into bed
Clouds surround my head
Clouds surround my bed

I told myself I wouldn't cry
I told myself no regrets
I told myself that I wouldn't be
Afraid of death

I begin to wonder as I'm going under how long is this gonna last?
Blood rushes to your head
Rushes to your head
Rushes to your head

I jumped off a Beeing 747 just to see if I could die
Falling to my death
Finally catch my breath
Finally catch my breath

I told myself I wouldn't cry
I told myself no regrets
Everything that I told myself
Was a waste of breath

All I wanted was to fly
But I wasn't satisfied
What I really wanted was to fall
After all

I inhale slowly as the world below me's falling wholly from my grasp

We have come to take you on a holiday
Track Name: I Wish I Were a Narcissist
Oh I wish I were a narcissist so everyone would like me
And marvel at my facebook pics all taken in good lighting
And compliment me on my clothes cause I’d spend more time shopping
Oh I wish I were a narcicist so narcissists would like me

I wish I were an optimist I’d know a million platitudes
And nobody could blame me for not having the right attitude
I wish I were a masochist so nobody could hurt me
And cigarettes may burn my arm but words would never hurt me

Oh to pour my soul into a blog

I wish I could believe
That people want to read
All the little details of my day

Cause if I they really knew
What I really go through
If they really knew I know they’d like me

Oh I wish I were a narcissist so somebody could know me
I wish that I liked people so I wouldn’t be so lonely

But dammit I’m afraid
If only I were brave
But if I can’t be brave - let me be oblivious

Oh I wish I was an idiot so everyone would like me
Not smart enough to hate myself so maybe I’d be happy
They say you’ll be attractive if you’re having a good time
Oh I wish I was an idiot so idiots would like me

I wish I wanted something more from life so I could have it
And a grand sense of entitlement so if I saw it I would grab it
I wish I thought I had something to say so I could say it
Humility is killing me but I’m just gonna let it

So every day I dance alone cause it takes two to tango
I’ve got a poet’s noble heart but not their noble ego
I want to have your ear but only if you want to lend it
I wish I were a baladeer cause then I could express it.
Oh I wish I were a narcissist so everyone would like me.
