Capture the still image life,
Record a moment in time,
Watch as we soar like a knife,
And see that it's the ground we find.
We do our tricks to amaze the crowd,
Listening to the laughter heard aloud,
We jump over a wall,
Just for the fall,
Waiting for the reaction made by all.

6, 12, 14... Doesn't matter about the feet,
From that height, it will be my mind that I keep,
Falling and falling endlessly,
Back to ground thats under me,
The wind rushing past my face,
A feeling I can't waste.

Take the leap, or step off the ledge,
But be careful, one slip could mean your death,
This is not a game, it's a skill,
It takes vast amounts of strengh and will,
You must know what you are doing,
Because it is to everyone that you are showing,
We do not want a mistake that could take your life,
So before you jump you must realize,
We have had only one tragedy,
A small ledge jump ending in a shattered knee,
So please...
Just Keep 
Your sanity.
