We were safe, now we're paralyzed Suspended in flight At this speed it makes no difference Where I start and where I end Or if we're sitting in an emergency aisle
We could be dead, complete the equation Our names are 'X' and 'N' We have no value in these calculations
Placed on a plane, pointed straight down Traveling at 500 feet per second 5000 feet from the ground
How long will it take us to hit? How fast will we start the disintegration? Don't die now, just keep moving Don't die now, just keep moving
How long will it take us to hit? How fast will we start the disintegration?
We could be safe here forever Floating in the clean blue air Somewhere between the sun that gives us light And the ground that puts it out
And we'll kneel in the aisles Press our hands together and close our eyes Speak these words so softly To the black box and it goes
Mother, father can you hear this? I want to thank you for all of your sweetness I'm not coming home, I'm never coming home
