Lyrics

First you learn to jump
It's almost like flying
And then you get tired of the bruises to your head
And you learn to stop trying.
Then you're running so fast you barely touch the ground
And as your feet hit you learn to come down.

Then you learn to walk with your toes digging in the earth
Tear your flesh, bleed in the soil and wonder at this calm rebirth
And as you bend to dive into this radical alchemy
You find you're down on your knees and crying.

Chorus:
If someone had told me I'd been going backwards all of this time
I wouldn't change a single thing 'cause it's as close as I've come to flying

Flying
Flying

We're born into this world at the bottom of a spiraling road
And at the top are riches and salvation so we're told
And in our striving we're blinded to a road winding down
It's voice is silence
And words like progress and development
Must define our predicament if we are
Told to lay our lives down halfway old.

I've come around full turn and turning 'round and 'round
I close my eyes and I have found I'm not at all where I started
Despair is gone, I'm humbled yes but helpless not
Hope's in a chest, the latch is locked
I'll embrace this world whole-hearted

Chorus:

Jumping, then running, then walking, standing, then being still
Jumping, then running, then walking, standing, then being still
Jumping, then running, walking, standing then finally being still.
