"Flying and Falling" is the eleventh track on Melanie's fourth studio album, Gummies.


This song is told from Sophia's perspective, and it is about her hatred for violence and her disapproval of her mother using violence to solve all of her problems.


You can't shoot a gun and run

To solve all of your problems

Cuz after all when it's all done

You'll just end up with more of 'em

You were flying

Now you're falling

Crashing headfirst on the concrete

You can't always get what you want

Or make the people who you secretly fear


Come over here

You were flying

Now you're falling

Crashing headfirst on the concrete

Only because

You can't just

Draw back and admit defeat
