You were the son of the man
Who left his house
That sat on the lawn and watched the river

You were the boy who spread his arms
Who swayed on the grass
And stared at your fingers
So far away

Oh, yeah you'd go through the night
Go shoot through the air
No one could hold you down
But you fell down

Oh, yeah you glowed in the spotlight
Glowed in the spotlight
You got caught by the camera midflight

And you were singing out

Don't look so close at me
I am best viewed from a distance
I am no subject for your study
I should be viewed from a distance

Some things fly but most things fall
Some people want to build you up
But most want to hold you down
Sometimes you catch yourself
With your arms outstretched
And you're standing back on the lawn

And now you're the son of the man
Who lives in the house
That mows his lawn by the river
You don't fly much anymore
You've got to get up in the morning
You've got dishes in the sink
Dishes that need cleaning

Some things fly, but most things fall
Some things fly
