"Falls Apart" as written by Jonathan Santos, Soren Sarkisyan, Robert Garcia and Thomas Decker....
Now your failure feeds the contempt
I can't sedate the way you break me down
I can't relieve the pain
I can't reduce the failure you've become
I can't accept the blame now

Now your failure feeds the contempt

You imitate the things you think
That isolate what I want
I can't get through it's never you
It's showing through and it's wrong

You pushed me too far and I'm tired now
It all falls apart now I'm finally down

I hate the way you turn this all around
So you can bleach your shame
Apology is not an option now
It won't erase the blame now

Now your failure feeds the contempt

It's nothing new I'll suffer through
It's all in you an you're wrong
I compensate, you mutilate
It separated and we're done

I can't sedate the way you're breaking me
You're breaking me down

    General Comment"Now your failure feeds your contempt" - that summarises the entire meaning of the song to be honest.

    My InterpretationI take it as feeling hurt from a relationship that has broken down (fallen apart). The other party is trying to absolve themselves of any blame "Now your failure feeds your contempt ... So you bleach your shame", and put all the blame on the narrator.

    The narrator however is having none of this, and is saying both of us were at fault and they are just not hiding from the fact that they were at fault also (like the target of the song).

    In the end their relationship has failed because the partner can not shoulder any responsibility and does not believe they've done anything wrong (it is all the other person who needs to be better ... change). The narrator has had enough, and knows it all falls apart because of the inability of open communication and honesty between the two.
