Perch Above the Earth

from by Formula 5



The first track off of Formula 5's second studio album "Edging on Catastrophe"


Welcome Back, I’m on the track, Don’t know where I've gone
I’m up again, its 7:10, And then I’m out by dawn
Don’t count on me, I’ll never be, The one you're supposed to see
Reality, or so it seems, Is much too dull for me…

Don’t jump the gun! I gotta run, find what I’m looking for
A peaceful place, an open space, make sure it has a door
I’m stepping out, without a doubt, you’ll find me in the sea
Courageous child, a brazen style, just like a phlatty bee

I've got it good, or so I should, it seems I’ve got it great
Call me repressed, or under-stressed, its wrong at any rate
I’d never strive, to take a dive, for something true to me
I’d rather perch, above the earth, the price to live is free


from Edging on Catastrophe, released April 15, 2014
