"Follow You Down" as written by and Tomas Nils Naeslund Christian Thell Lindskog....
It's the smallest things
That have a tendency to hurt for the longest time
It's like you found a way inside

But this time I'm not going to follow you down
I'll fall in love with the sound
(I'm not going to follow you down)
So push me back and I'll stay the same
(I'm not going to follow you down)
And fall in love with the sound of silence

I'm armed but the gun is not loaded
I guess I could find my way out of this
But it's like you found a way inside
And I hate that I suspect you're right

But this time I'm not going to follow you down
I'll fall in love with the sound
(I'm not going to follow you down)
So push me back and I'll stay the same
(I'm not going to follow you down)
And fall in love with the sound of silence

Silence is golden
but golden teeth are so much sharper
It's not easy but I'm biting my tongue off
It's not easy but I'm biting my tongue off
It's not easy but I'm biting my tongue off
It's not easy but I'm biting my tongue off

Even though you're right
Your words lie
Even though you're right
Your words lie

But this time I'm not going to follow you down
I'll fall in love with the sound
(I'm not going to follow you down)
So push me back and I'll stay the same
(I'm not going to follow you down)
And fall in love with the sound of silence

    General CommentAs far as I can tell, he's talking about taking the heart out of an attack by refusing to "follow you down"--that is, engage in the habitual response. If he were to indulge the attacker by trying to argue, he would only expose himself to more wounds and drag the thing out.

    I think this can be taken as a way to deal with Satan; he often uses people to tell us things about ourselves--how much we're worth, how we should feel about people ("and I hate that I suspect you're right")--and because we listen to him, he controls us. In Jesus we have this chance to begin living, and it completely blows Satan's bluffing out of the water. Searching that life out, though, means shutting out some of the noise.

    General CommentI think this band is SOOOOO much better when you dont think about the fact that they're a christian rock band. I dont know but something in the lyrics die when god is brought into the picture. Thats just me.
    This is one of my favorite songs on the album. 'I fall in love with the sound' Is the part that gets me everytime,

    General Commenti think he's referring to people who make personal statements that are damaging, but he's not going to "sink to their level"

    General CommentThis is an amazing blindside song, but I would have to say that Sleepwalking kicks it's butt.
