The Lyrics

Part of my "Run Away" self-challenge. Dude's walking a tightrope...and highly regretting it.
High tightrope

I'm on a high tightrope, can't be slippin'
Why'd I pick the bar style? Because my grip is slippin'
Though with arms spread wide, one small cramp would then be killin'
Fall from the high tightrope (high tightrope)
Crossin' this high tightrope, I'm not kiddin'
One quarter down, really hope I don't start reelin'
Survival from this is one in a million
Fall from the high tightrope

Take a step, defyin' gravity
Just like Elphaba, without the strings on me
No helpers liftin' me up on the stage
This here is genuine, really genuine (high tightrope)
One more step, inside, I wanna freak
Let out a mighty scream because all I can see
Is the air below me, far too much space
I can see ev'rythin', the worst ev'rythin'

Can't backstep or give up, cause my brain and heart would hate it
Though my lungs would just love, more consistent breaths, must brace it

Up on this high tightrope, can't be slippin'
If I dip this bar too far one side, I'll be dippin'
And then through the sky, my whole body will be flippin'
Fall from the high tightrope
Crossin' this high tightrope, sweat keeps drippin'
One whole half down, if I botch it, there's no healin'
Survival from this is one in a billion
Fall from the high tightrope (high tightrope)

Few more steps, wind's a new enemy
Less 'bout the balance, more my extremities
They're numb now, I'm mentally losin' their place
I dressed for cold, but it turned out to mean shit (high tightrope)
Birds attack my eyes, birds all in my eyes, I want them gone now, oh-oh-oh-oh
Though I am surprised that there's also flies up here, still blow now

Though I'm pissed, can't give up, I don't want to be berated
By my buds who paid tons to set up this situation
For a bet, I feel dumb, since I was so drunk, I said "okay", ay, ay, ay
So I got a lot on my brain forcin' me to not escape, ay, ay, ay

Stuck on this high tightrope, can't be slippin'
Hold on to this bar so tight, feels like my skin's rippin'
Can't recall the height, I'm too focused on not tippin'
Fall from the high tightrope (high tightrope)
Crossin' this high tightrope, won't risk trippin'
Three quarters down, hope I'll reach the other ceilin'
Survival from this is one in a trillion
Fall from the high tightrope (high tightrope)
Walkin' a high tightrope, can't be slippin'
When I'm done, this bar that I carry, I'll be flingin'
Once it's gone, then I won't, 'bout crushin' death, be thinkin'
Fall from the high tightrope
Crossin' this high tightrope, heart is skippin'
I can step down cause it's over, what a feelin'
So take me down quick, overdue for pissin'
Off of the high tightrope (high tightrope)

We all walk the tightropes, they may try to shoot down all of our high hopes
Every time I fall still holding a biro, we pick ourselves up and we make a side note
