I wish you would step back
From that ledge my friend

from Third Eye Blind – Jumper Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

This song was written directly in response to the story the band heard from their manager about a gay kid who was viciously bullied and ended up jumping off a bridge. This song is written to all suicidal people to metaphorically “step back from the ledge”, or stop trying to destroy their life. This song is taken literally in Jim Carrey’s “Yes Man”. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sGjxPXekFEs
