There’s a problem, feathers, iron
Bargain buildings, weights and pulleys
Feathers hit the ground
Before the weight can leave the air

Buy the sky and sell the sky
And tell the sky, and tell the sky
Don’t fall on me (what is it up in the air for)
[It’s gonna fall] Fall on me (if it’s there for long)
[It’s gonna fall] Fall on me (it’s over, it’s over me)

There’s the progress (When the rain)
We have found a way to talk around the problem (When the children reign)
Building towered (Keep your conscience in the dark)
Foresight isn’t anything at all (Melt the statues in the park)

Buy the sky and sell the sky
And bleed the sky and tell the sky
Don’t fall on me (what is it up in the air for)
[It’s gonna fall] Fall on me (if it’s there for long)
[It’s gonna fall] Fall on me (it’s over, it’s over me)
Don’t fall on me

(Well I would keep it above, but then it wouldn’t be sky any more)
(So if I send it to you, you’ve got to promise to keep it whole)

Buy the sky and sell the sky
And lift your arms up to the sky
And ask the sky, and ask the sky
Don’t fall on me (what is it up in the air for)
[It’s gonna fall] Fall on me (if it’s there for long)
[It’s gonna fall] Fall on me (it’s over, it’s over me)
