  • Song Lyrics:
    I was just an acrobat, high above the street
    Pointing at the ground the empty sky beneath my feet
    The perfect fall, no one could tell at all
    That it was killing me

    You were just an astronaut, floating on a spark
    Tearing up the atmosphere, burning down the dark
    As you fell in, the heat against your skin
    Till it got too bright to see

    Far away, I hear the things they say about me
    Even though they know you had to go without me

    Now you are an architect, setting up the sea
    Everyone is with you and you're all waiting for me
    You check the net, but you haven't caught me yet
    They're not quite done with me

    Now I am an arsonist, seven miles high
    Burning through the air I breathe, thunder in the sky
    My engine sings as it melts this pair of wings
    That only I can see

    Touch the sun, my eyes wide open unbelieving
    Catch a breath, the only one who's left is leaving

    Now I am an arsonist
