High as a stone, I fall to the earth at an acceleration constant
Minus nine point eight, meters per second squared
What weighs more, a pound of emotion or a box of hammers?
Who can tell? When everything in free fall falls the same

My parabolic arc, a ramification of the integration of a constant
Closing in, on an abrupt break with the continuity
I saw my mom, in San Francisco, but she was back in Michigan
I saw my mom, I could have swore I saw a ghost

I called you up, using base ten digits represented in base two
I send my words, three thousand miles at the speed of c
What means more, a logical expression or expressing that I miss you?
Who can tell? When everything we’re fixed to is flying circles round the sun

Closing doors, and opening new ones is a hallmark of our species
Evolving sores, cuts and bruises and lesions of the heart
I saw my dad in San Francisco, but he was back in Michigan
I saw my dad, could have swore I saw myself
