"Bring Me Down" as written by Zackery D. Toms, Dominic Butler and Mark Yardley....
Back in the day when nothing really mattered to me
I only showed my eyes what they wanted to see
And everything around me seemed to never change
Looking for an easy way out someone to blame
Why does it work this way still today
You want to take somebody down along the way
But I won't let that one be me
Cause I don't want the drama it brings
See today isn't back in the day anymore
I know a little more than I did before
So don't forget before you start bringing me down
What goes around always comes back around

You can't bring me down
Till you hear what I'm trying to say
You can't bring me down
I'll never turn the other way
You can't bring me down
What is it you're trying to say
You can't bring me down
It's not like I'm running away

So you think you can see inside my mind
You probably could if you just took a little time
I know exactly what you're trying to say
He's sittin' there saying Satan thinks i'm playing a game
So i can't comprehend in my mind
Just why we can't leave it all behind
So come on and stand beside the border line
Cause tonight is the night we climb

You can't bring me down
Till you hear what I'm trying to say
You can't bring me down
I'll never turn the other way
You can't bring me down
What is it you're trying to say
You can't bring me down
It's not like I'm running away

Why can't we feel what it's saying for us to be real
Why can't we see what it's saying for us to believe
Why do we say all of these things that bring us down

You can't bring me down
Till you hear what I'm trying to say
You can't bring me down
I'll never turn the other way
You can't bring me down
What is it you're trying to say
You can't bring me down
It's not like I'm running away

It's not like I'm running away

You can't bring me down

    General Comment"Whats goes around always comes back around"

    This is a Hindu and Buddhist belief. (Karma)

    I like this song especially the instruments.I love this entire part of the song because the words are really well done. =)

    "Why can't we feel what it takes for us to be real
    Why can't we see what it takes for us to believe
    Why do we say all of these things that bring us down"

    General CommentThis is probably my favorite Pillar song. It seriously rocks. But as for its meaning...

    Of course it's talking about someone who used to blame everyone else for his own mistakes and could never take responsibility for his own actions and the consequences they brought.

    However, this person has changed and I'd say, because Pillar is a Christian band, that this person found God and realized it's no one else's fault but his own that what has happened thus far has happened and now he's trying to tell what he's learned to everyone else, or atleast the ones trying to bring others down.

    Also, he could be talking about Satan being the one trying to bring others down and now he's telling the devil himself that "You can't bring me down," and maybe he's telling others to quit blaming other people and stand up and show Satan that he can't touch anyone that's a Christian (because it's true, so long as we don't let him).


    P.S. "What goes around always comes back around."
    Yea it is true that this is a Hindu and Buddhist belief and it is called karma but it is also a Christian belief as well. It states in the Bible (not in these exact words) that the wicked shall have wickedness cast upon them someday and that the righteous will be rewarded with crowns.
