I don't know where I'm at
I'm standing at the back
And I'm tired of waiting
Waiting here in line, hoping that I'll find what I've been chasing.

I shot for the sky
I'm stuck on the ground
So why do I try, I know I'm going to fall down
I thought I could fly, so why did I drown?
Never know why it's coming down, down, down.

Not ready to let go
Cause then I'd never know
That I could be missing
I'm missing way too much
So when do I give up what I've been wishing for

I shot for the sky
I'm stuck on the ground
So why do I try, I know I'm going to fall down
I thought I could fly, so why did I drown?
Never know why it's coming down, down, down.
Oh I'm going down, down, down
Can't find another way around
And I don't want to hear the sound, of losing what I never found.

I shot for the sky
I'm stuck on the ground
So why do I try, I know I'm going to fall down
I thought I could fly, so why did I drown?
I never know why it's coming down, down, down.
I shot for the sky
I'm stuck on the ground
So why do I try, I know I'm going to fall down
I thought I could fly, so why did I drown?
Oh it's coming down, down, down.

    If we look into jason's words, it's obvious to see that he is yearning for help. He's stuck on the ground, unable to get off his feet without falling back down. The song is one with which a person may easily identify. Questioning his actions, the lyrics seem to put the person at a place of desperation for god's love and perseverance. The message seems to be without god's help (depending on our own), we may meet many low points, but if we rely on and trust fully in god, then we can overcome the greatest feats (even if our faith is as small as a mustard seed, we can move mountains matthew 17:16-21).

    He is talking about how no matter how hard he tries nothing ever seems to go his way. He can't stand it anymore. He can't stand the sense of failure and disappointment.
