"Life's no fun if you're not insane, otherwise you grow up to be an accountant." -Moi

I've been to the bottom
and bounced back up
I've fallen to the rocks
to be saved by the sea
And I'm surrounded by faces
that somehow forgive me
And I just want to let you know
I'm okay

This is actually really neat - I love the rhythm and flow. I think it's an interesting last line, especially with the parenthesis. I think with a bit of imagery of how you "survived your fall" - minor cuts, stitched bleeding, etc, that gives the idea of a put-back-together wound, either physically or mentally. Great job!
