"When Darkness Falls" as written by and Joel Stroetzel Mike D'antonio....
As you walk
The path of least resistance
Is it that simple
As you claim it to be
Cut out
Your tongue
Your eyes
Your lies
They do deceive you
Your tongue
Your eyes
Your lies
They do deceive you

I stand firm in my solidarity
The path I walk (the path I walk)
I walk in with my own resolve
When darkness falls (when darkness falls)
We are reborn
A dream since the fall of man
We are reborn

But the lives
Are not yet depleted
We are the whole
Save us of all
With not just words
Let resolution be our voice

I stand firm in my solidarity
The path I walk (the path I walk)
I walk in with my own resolve
When darkness falls (when darkness falls)
We are reborn
A dream since the fall of man
We are reborn

We are the remnant
We the remnant will save us of all
We are the faithful
We the faithful will save us of all
Save us of all

When darkness falls (when darkness falls)
We are reborn
A dream since the fall of man
We are reborn
When darkness falls (when darkness falls)
We are reborn
A dream since the fall of man
We are reborn

    General CommentKillswitch Engage dominate! When this song comes on in a club, I go ape shit, lol.

    This song (to me) is about the redemption of mankind. The fall of man is about mans fall from grace and in the bible (can't remember where) it says about if your eye causes you to sin (I guess by looking at something bad), cut it out, cause its better to get to heaven with one eye than to keep both eyes and go to hell, thats where I think the "cut out your tongue your eyes your lies they do decieve you" part is from.

    General CommentA few of theses lyrics are incorrect here:

    The second verse is actually "My beliefs are not antiquated, we are the whole, Silence them all with not just words, let resolution be our voice"

    The verse begining "We are the remnants...", is actually:

    "we are the remnants
    we the remnants will silence them all
    we are the faithful
    we the faithful will silence them all
    Silence them all"

    General CommentI think this song is about how the fall of man may have been 'bad' but mankind has eventually become stronger for it- "When darkness falls we are reborn", and that now we, as people can "Stand firm in our solidarity" without that b*****d Big Brother God looking over our shoulder.

    General CommentHoward SUCKS! Bring back Jesse, how can they think this chump can replace Jesse? Now KsE sounds like a nu-metal band. They will never touch Alive or Just Breathing. I'm sure all you Linkin Park fans go ape shit when you hear this in a club...dorks!

    General CommentOk, this song actually has to do, well, the title, when Howard fell down the stairs. For those of you who dont know who Howard is, he is the replacement singer for Jesse. Howard is a rather large black man from Blood Has Been Shed. They call him Darkness. Ive heard the story a million times from those who know him and are related. (They are local's)

    And to SOAD_Fan_Uk....the new KillSwitch is amazing. Blood Has Been Shed, Howards other band, amazing as well. You like System of a Down...and your gonna talk shit? Eat it.

    General CommentIt's pretty obvious that The Road is lacking a brain. If he actually would've read the lyrics to "Rose Of Sharyn" it would contradict his stupid theory.

    General Commentpay no attention to SOAD Fan. he criticizes kse for sounding like nu-metal (total bullshit. they always have been and still are metalcore), but he pays no attention to shitty system of a down? read his other comments. he's totally ignorant (find his anti-semetic post). what a stupid fuck. if you're going to be a musical elitist, make sure the music you listen to isn't total shit. keep crankin' your mallcore, dick.

    about the song. it's good. not great. i don't really like the chorus, but the 'we are the remnants' part really shines.
