Inspiration:

Paragliding Inspires Music

song

It’s not uncommon for people with no prior musical experience (such as myself) to write a song upon getting into this sport. Powered paragliding is such an inspirational thing to do that it has a way of digging deep into one’s soul to mine out the lyrical madness. Here’s my attempt at some “PPG Music” in the way of a song I wrote after a really inspirational flight.

The Morbid What If’s
and the Irrational You’re Gonna Kill Yourself’s!

Bought myself this flyin machine,
…too many trees I found myself in between.
Told my non-fly’n friends bout what I had done,
…definitely wasn’t the lottery they thought I’d won.
Listened to their fears in disbelief,
…suddenly occurred to me these folks never feel my relief!

It’s the morbid “what if’s” and the irrational “you’re gonna kill yourself’s”…
…the morbid “what if’s” and the irrational “you’re gonna kill yourself’s”
Too many people limited by their perception,
…boy what a sad side effect of their conception!

Took my Paramotor over this field,
…went down low and dragged my heels.
Had a great time just taken in this view,
…didn’t give a crap what my non-fly’n friends would do!
Cuz they’ll never experience my elation,
…even when they’re on vacation!

It’s the morbid “what if’s” and the irrational “you’re gonna kill yourself’s”…
…the morbid “what if’s” and the irrational “you’re gonna kill yourself’s”
Was all giddy at 500 hundred feet,
…couldn’t think of a better way to get some heat!
