Based on the poem 'Several ways to fall out of the sky' by Lisa Jacobson (uwap.uwa.edu.au/collections/lisa-jacobson)

lyrics

There must be a dozen ways to fall out of the sky
There must be a dozen ways to hit the ground and die

Number one: don’t even try (down you go)
Number two: you just screw it up and die
Number three: clip the trees and spin into the ground below
Number four: just want more, just want more

There must be a dozen ways to fall out of the sky
There must be a dozen ways to hit the ground and die

Number five: stop believing (down you go)
Number six: just stop breathing (now you know)
Number seven: think of everything but what you’re doing
Number eight: concentrate, concentrate!

Crash into the mountains, fly into the pelicans
Fall asleep: no-one knows who you are
There must be a dozen ways to fall out of the sky

Number nine: bring your burdens with you (down you go)
Number ten: just pretend you know it all
Number eleven: try for heaven, look into the face of god
Number twelve: suit yourself, suit yourself

There must be a dozen ways to fall out of the sky
