Why does my snail keep falling?

I have a golden mystery snail his name is Trump. I have noticed this habit has been increasing multiple times a day I see my snail climb up the side of my tank and unstick just to eithe plummet or float if his lung is full to the bottom of the tank. Why is this?

It's a common behavior for mystery snails. It's actually pretty cool IMO
