"Down" as written by and Mead/hower....
A young girl walks into a room
And doesn't like what she sees
In her reflection there
She's not what she wants to be

She cries out, she cries out

The frustrations of this life
Are filling her head
How could such a simple thing
Have a grip so intense

She cries out, she cries out
I want to be like the movie stars
And models on the screen

She wants to fly away from this
She wants to fly away from this
But she does not know how to
Fly away from this
She wants to fly away

She tries just to be what she's not
But she's destroying herself
She starves herself
This compulsion must end

She cries out, she cries out
I want to be like the movie stars
And models on the screen

She wants to fly away from this
She wants to fly away from this
But she does not know how to
Fly away from this
She wants to fly away

This addiction is bringing her down
This obsession is bringing her down

She wants to fly away from this
Fly away from this
She wants to fly away from this
But only God knows how to
Fly away from this
He will help her now to
Fly away from this
She wants to fly away
Fly away

    General CommentNo one has posted on this one yet?! This used to be my absolute favorite song that Kutless sings!! I think this is about a who is totally lost and needs God, she wants to get away from all this pressure and drama that she's in. I totally relate, i just want to fly away with God to somewhere safe and comfortable.

    General Commenti believe this song is about a girl struggling with an eating disorder. "she starves herself" she's bombarded with the media of women with unrealistic bodies and she wants to be like them.so she starves herself. "and this compulsion must end" but once she begins to go down this route, she finds it's become an addiction. she wants out but doesn't know how to be free."only God knows how to fly away from this". she must find her escape by submitting to God, and He will provide the way out.
