Do you hear the jet plane yawning miles across the sky? do you hear the garbage truck back down the boulevard, setting off the car alarms as it passes by? do you hear the static of one thousand detuned radios? shut the window, love. keep the world outside. I don't want to think about anyone but the footsteps are getting louder, drowning out the sound of the rain, as it knocks on the windowsill. I'm not answering the phone -- let it ring. lately I've been feeling like a falling bomb. the ground is getting closer and the sky is falling down. this song has been brough to you by a falling bomb.

    The song represents the kind of panic felt when life becomes overwhelming and you fail to cope. "I'm not answering the phone -- let it ring. lately I've been feeling like a falling bomb"-this line is a perfect example of trying to shut out the world and then failing to live. Really, it's about the far of losing everything.The "falling bomb" is symbolic of destruction, and he {the writer} feels he is losing (or on the very verge of losing) everything.
