about

During my second week in Vienna, something fell out of the sky and hit me on the leg. This song is not metaphorical; it really happened and I have the scar.

lyrics

One day it started to rain
And I had to step outside
And on my very short way
Out of the sky this thing hit my leg
I went inside to dress my wound
Then I had to continue on my way
But somehow now the sky had cleared
Now I'm left with this permanent mark

Out of the sky this thing fell on me
Brings back an old memory
Out of the sky this thing fell on me
Now part of my history

Later I went back to where it fell
It had been a large wooden thing
All that was left was just a single splinter
And this I carried back across the sea
Now you know I'm not a believer
I know you can call me a fool
But I don't know just what to think
When something falls from the sky and hits me

Another second and I might be dead
It feels strange but has to be said
Another second and I might be dead
Now I have this scar instead
