The Lyrics

When my damned wife
Starts her nagging tonight.
And calls her mom to bitch
That I'm a disgrace.
(Jump off a roof)

I'll climb way up
Throw my hands in the air.
And fall into a dark and hardened space.
(Jump off a roof)

On the roof where no-one else can see.
And then the ground below will welcome me.

When I come home feeling burdened and weak.
I'll throw myself off of the highest peak.
(Jump off a roof)

I'll hit the ground with a rumbling thud
And all that's left is a few limbs in the street.
(Jump off a roof)

From the roof is where I want to fall
And then I will finally release it all.
Let's jump - off of the roof.
(Off of a roof)

All day the boss he has it out for me.
And then my wife will want to fight 'till 3.

Right smack-dab in the middle of a yard
You'll find a lifeless man in a business suit.
(Off of a roof)

And if it all starts getting you down
These words will see through: Jump off a roof.
