"Sky Is Falling" as written by and Jason Wade....
I watch as the daylight crawls
Past the shadows hanging on the walls
It's been a long time since I felt the stain
Of yesterday getting in my way

I'm alive but tell me am I free
I got eyes but tell me can I see
The sky is falling and no one knows
It shouldn't be hard to believe
Shouldn't be this difficult to breathe
The sky is falling and no one knows

You leave me hanging on only to catch my breath
I got you and I got nothing left
Don't leave me all alone down here
With myself and all of my fears

I'm alive but tell me am I free
I got eyes but tell me can I see
The sky is falling and no one knows
It shouldn't be hard to believe
Shouldn't be this difficult to breathe
The sky is falling and no one knows

The sky is falling and no knows

No one knows
No one knows

    General Commentoh my god, no comments for this, no way
    This son is pretty amazing, totally different song to most others.

    maybe about people not knowing whats going on around them, ignorance. Not caring erally, so "im alive but tell me am i free, ive got eyes but tell me can i see" and "the sky is falling and no one knows"

    i cant realy be sure of the meaning but its a wonderful song that makes ya think

    General CommentThis song is absolutely amazing. By far my favorite off of Stanley Climbfall. This acoustic version is incredible. I'm surprised more people haven't commented on it.

    General Commenti think it's a comment on the state of the world. and people's ignorance to that. being the only one who is aware of something is a pretty daunting feeling... i feel that sometimes...

    General CommentIts about sometimes when people can easily adjust back to their regular life althought something unbeleivable has happened, sort of reminded me of 9-11..

    General Commenthe didn't write about the World Trade Centers falling...its a song about the ignorance that people live in. its this thought of what will life come to. and what is the purpose and meaning for why i am here. think about The Matrix. how neo had to breakthrough to another world ,,,the real world, to realize the illusion that he had been living his whole life. btw...lifehouse is a christian band...and it perfectly correlates to the idea of heaven.

    General CommentThe song was written just after 9/11 but it isnt specifically about that, its about how quickly people go back to their everyday lives after something huge happens, it can be related to anything, someone dying, a huge incident like 9/11 or just the end of the relationship cause the line

    "the sky is falling and no one knows"

    Can be taken in different ways, either that YOUR whole world is collapsing around you and no one else notices because they've got their own problems.

    or

    The whole world is in a mess and no one pays any attention because 'its just one of those things' or 'its not their problem'

    Be open minded, dont try and make this song about any specific thing and then it will make a lot more sense.

    General CommentI do remember reading something said by jason a while ago that this song was inspired by the affects of 9-11

    General CommentI agree with some of the posts about the song referring to people and life in general.

    I think though, it might be about someone who's struggling with a major problem on their own. Their 'sky is falling' and no one realizes what they're going through.

    General CommentI think the song is saying that people are getting so caught up in society and the material world that they don't even realize what's happening in the world; people are too focused on their own lives and their daily routines to notice that the sky is falling.
