All Fall Down

There are days when the euphoria of a new achievement comes.

You're on top of the world, it seems you're never gonna fall.

But I'm sure you've heard before, the saying about things that go up,

No matter how high they all eventually have to drop.

The culprit of this job is the weakest natural force,

'Cos it takes the whole earth's weight to hold a feather to it's core.

The purpose of this law is so that things do not just drift off.

This also the reason that right now we never truly fly.

Cos we'll still be pulled down no matter how high we jump.

With these words my Physics teacher turned some of my dreams into dust.


I heard about Escape Velocity.

The speed at which Gravity no longer means anything.

That's what I have to aim for and surpass,

Otherwise, no matter how high,

Everything falls down.
