"Going Down In Flames" as written by Bradley Kirk Arnold, Matthew Darrick Roberts, Christopher Lee Henderson and Robert Todd Harrell....
Don't tell me what to think
'Cause I don't care this time
Don't tell me what you believe
Cause you won't be there
To catch me when I fall
But you'll need me when I'm not here at all
Miss me when I'm gone again, yeah

[Chorus]
I'm going down in flames
I'm falling into this again, yeah
I'm going down in flames
I'm falling into this again

Don't tell me how life is
'Cause I don't really want to know
Don't tell me how this game ends
'Cause we'll just see how it goes
Catch me when I fall
Or you'll need me when I'm not here at all
Miss me when I'm gone again, yeah

[Chorus]

Now, I'm all the way down here
I'm falling
All the way
All the way down here
I'm falling down again
Now I'm falling down
I'm falling down
I'm falling down

[Chorus]

Now, I'm all the way down here
I'm falling
I'm all the way
I'm all the way down here
I'm falling down again now
I'm falling down

    General Commentthis is definitely one of the best songs on away from the sun... as for the meaning, it's about someone who keeps falling into the same cycle with the same person, as much as they don't want to. it's the type of relationship situation where someone is let down, swears that it won't happen again, then watches themselves as they 'fall into it' all over again. it's the point where you've succumbed to yourself when you know you'll only get hurt, and given in, even when you said you wouldn't.

    General CommentTo me this song about falling into depression and feeling that no one cares:
    "Don’t tell me what you believe
    Cause you won’t be there
    To catch me when I fall
    But you’ll need me when I’m not here at all"

    Great song.

    General CommentThis song is just incredible, i never get tired of listening to it.

    I think this song is about the persona's relationship with someone who has taken advantage of him before, and now it's happening again.

    General Commentthis song is about how someone is trying to tell him what to think but he's saying kinda saying they don't have the right to be telling him what to do becaues they won't help him if he screws up. it's about this never ending cycle he gets into with someone and how he hates it and how the person thinks they know a lot more than they actually do.

    General Commentim with u m8 this is an awsome song. it gets me fired up when ever im feelin down and also gets me pumped up. i think it means that he was at the top of something like sport or something and then a competitor came along and took over him but he didnt give it up with out a fight. this is one of the best songs on the cd.
