The Lyrics

You jumped off the tallest cliff in the world? Why'd you do that, you silly bastard?
It's the dumbest thing I've seen in my life
Shouldn't be that hard, don't go to the park
Or other outside places, I shirk hard, but the look on my face
I'm absolutely friggin' floored at this
You just winked at me now and then leapt into the air
Where there was no ground, knew you were a dumb shite
Some say I don't know all the sundry
Details, buddy, I don't know what will
Make me feel chummy to the concept of taking a leap
Off the highest building or somewhere else quite steep
No, I'm afraid that once you leapt away
That one word "moron" comes so clear to me
Along with "twit" and other basic descriptions you'd give to company
That lack sense in their brains to not jump high and free
Doesn't seem that sound

Cliff top, you leapt away
No, it wasn't sound
Cliff top, you leapt away
That plan wasn't sound
Cliff top, you leapt away
Simply not that sound
Cliff top, you leapt away

No bungee jump cord that I saw
You're not Superman or other draw
Don't say "there's water" cause that's not enough to grant help
In not becoming toast, at this distance, still hell
Isn't obvious to me why you'd wanna leap
Too happy to reverse that with ease
Down there's jack but oblivion in that vicinity
Sure, I aimed my rifle at your left brain, but I still don't see
How your choice was sound

Cliff top, you leapt away
Didn't seem so sound
Cliff top, you leapt away
Clear to see: ain't sound
Cliff top, you leapt away
Now way that it's sound
Cliff top, you leapt away
