Off the Wall

Rick Parnell


It’s only gravity  

Holding me down

Depending on perspective

I am lost or I am found

If no one hears me

Did I really make that sound?


And who will answer the call?

Who wants to put me 

back up on the wall?



I’m off the wall 

No one hears me when I speak

Learning to crawl

Got no reason left to drink

I’m off the wall

It doesn’t matter what I think

Please hold all my calls

I’m off the wall


It’s not a tragedy

When you feel the need to fold

But if you stop laughing then

Be sure you’re getting old

If you can’t take the heat

Try standing in the cold


Please don’t answer the call

I’m happy here

off the wall
