"Free Fall Without A Parachute" as written by and Garrett Michael Zablocki Daniel Gerard Trapp....
Well I had a dream last night and in my dream I took a knife to you.
I slit your throat from ear to ear
The wound was gasping for the air, your scream so clear.
But every dream could never come true.
Only in my sick mind can I do these things to you.

With every passing moment, it just keeps getting worse
The walls are getting smaller and I am six feet beneath the earth.
And I will be, oh I will be, lost.

I had a dream last night and in my dream I robbed a country club.
A 5 year old tried to stop me, but I shot him through the head, and now he's dead.
But every dream could never come true.
Only in my sick mind can I do these things to you.

With every passing moment, it just keeps getting worse
The walls are getting smaller and I am six feet beneath the earth.
And I will be, oh I will be, lost. [Repeat x 2]

Your heart. [Repeat x 4]

Oh it's better to just... Rush upon this blade.
Then give into the fear in your heart.
These dreams never cease.

With every passing moment, it just keeps getting worse
The walls are getting smaller and I am six feet beneath the earth.
And I will be, oh I will be, lost. [Repeat x 3]

    General Commentshut up, the storys old. this song fucking rocks. first of all, its about a dream. secondly, its not literally advocating this type of action. if anything, its disapproving of it, since he bluntly states that the kid is dead. its not pathetic, its the world. the world is a violent, fucked-up place. why should music not represent that? anything that doesn't is explicitly escapist in nature, which isn't always a bad thing. but this dream could be a reality in anyplce in the world today. so before you bash the lyrics, turn off FOX and figure out whats goin on in the world around you, cuz i guarantee this type of shit happens a lot.

    General Commentthe lyrics aren't literal, we ALL should kno that.
    but i think what hes trying 2 say is that he is really mad at someone he loves, but he knos no matter what he wants to do or thinks about doing, he could never do them b/c he is so deeply in love.
    *its sort of like when ur mad at say ur sister or someone and you just want 2 kill them and never see them again! but u kno u never could b/c u love them no matter what*
    its about an unconditional love

    Song MeaningTo me the guy is in a struggle or conflict with himself over a girl. His dreams of insanity make it clear that he is losing his mind. I think he doesn't exactly know what to do with the issue he's facing. He is extremely lost and insecure. Think about 'You Found Me' by The Fray. The first line in that song says that the guy "found God". In 'Free Fall Without a Parachute', the guy is "six feet beneath the Earth." Maybe he's lost in that he doesn't see God in his life. I think that as far as the “feelings” in both songs are concerned, one is mainly of relief and appreciation while the other is mainly of desperation since the guy doesn't truly know what he wants to do and is desperate for answers–in his dreams he is a murderer, but in reality, who is he and what is he doing? Nurturing crude thoughts while choosing to stay in a hopeless relationship so as not to hurt anyone's feelings?

    Well let's look at the title, 'Free Fall Without a Parachute.' That's sheer suicide. Because it's all in his head, he's killing himself on the inside. We can tell he's experiencing pain. Maybe that five-year old he shot was himself, a reflection of who he used to be, innocent and naive.  Remember dreams are roughly what we imagine in our heads. So sum it all together and we can assume the song is saying that there *is* an answer somewhere, we just have to find someone who has it and talk to them. Or we could just stop beating around the bush, let go and move on with our lives...You know, stop wasting time.
