"Frustrations From Seat 15C"

The lights over the city shine so bright when the sun is down
I open my wings and fly through the sky just staring at them
I get so caught up in the beauty that I don't notice the line
So I cross the line and enter darkness I crash my plane
When I crash my plane water replaces the air in my lungs
I begin to fade away

And I wonder to myself
"Why is the water so black at night?
And why does it seem to swallow the city?
It's almost as if the lights of the city
Are fighting against the darkness of the sea
But they aren't winning
So much for beauty

Ooh please return to me

Light vs. the darkness and darkness vs. the light
Beauty destroyed by attitude
You thought you had all
Thought you knew all
Thought that you were all
But know you look around
Its so hard not to fall

Ooh please return to me

And so oddly enough I parallel my flight and its details
With the details of your sad demise
You got so caught up in what you look like and your light shine
That you didn't notice the line
And you start to cry because you start to fall and no one is there
All that were there before are all that are gone away

And you wonder to yourself
"Why is the water so black at night?
And why does it seem to swallow the city?
It's almost as if the lights of the city
Are fighting against the darkness of the sea
But they aren't winning
So much for beauty

Ooh please return to me...

nice!
I really like this piece a lot, my favorite lines were,
"Why is the water so black at night?
And why does it seem to swallow the city?
It's almost as if the lights of the city
Are fighting against the darkness of the sea
But they aren't winning
So much for beauty"
which made my happy that they were repeated!
