Walking 'round this metropolis
With its buildings that reach to the clouds
There must be millions of people out there
Walking 'round with their heads bowed

This city kills me but it thrills me
Now somethings gone and held up the crowd
They're pointing at a man standing high on a ledge
And somebody just cried out loud

Don't look down at the people below, oh
Don't look down, it's a long way to fall and I'd sure like to know
What made it happen, sure makes you think
Must have been something special to send him to the brink
Down here on the sidewalk, he's clearly in view
Then a voice cries out to him, "Try thinking it through but whatever you do

Don't look down
At the people below, oh
Don't look down, things might start looking up
You just never know"

He's heard the cries of the lunatics facing defeat
The cheers of the winners who are dancing in the street
Perhaps the crime and corruption finally got through
And the violence of the city just broke him in two
Now a voice from the queue shouts

"Don't look down
At the people below, oh
Don't look down, things might start looking up
You just never know
Don't look down, don't look down"

Down here on the sidewalk it's stopped all our lives
People are talking instead of just walking by
Before this happened it was just another day
Now people are talking instead of walking away
Now we're gripped by this tragedy
Our blood starts to pump as we all shout together
"Don't jump, don't jump"

"Don't look down
At the people below, oh
Don't look down, things might start looking up
You just never know"

"Don't look down", we all shouted out, oh
Don't look down, it's a long way to fall and I'd sure like to know
What made it happen, guess we'll never know
Now the sun's come out, looks like he's standing on a rainbow
He's in the heavens, I'm standing on the ground
Saying, "Don't look down"

Hey!
Don't look down
Don't look down
Don't look down
