In this day aspirations star decayed
It was the light of our desires
A fire burns in the mind
Torching once fundamental truths
Downfall
Self loathing it's your state of mind
Drowning in dejection
Homicidal of your talents
It's mental suicide
Downfall
One by one they all drown
Down the path I can't hear

To feel this pain with you
To feel this pain with you
To feel this pain I'm falling to grey
To feel this pain with you
Buried dreams will withered dried
Sorrow is your guide
You haven't the will to carry on
You'll feel better when you're gone
Downfall
One by one they all drown
Down the path I can't hear

If I may realign the scriptures
For fallacy's decay
Reclamation of the spirit
First step in taking back your life
Downfall
One by one they all drown
Down the path I can't hear

    General CommentYeah maybe...
    It's like he's telling this person that is about to fall to pieces, "Im going to be here for you.." kinda.. he wants to help them with their pain- "To feel this pain with you".. but maybe since they're so close to the end they're pulling him down with them, to fall.. hmm I don't know.

    General CommentTo me this song is about thinking about suicide, that voice telling him to do it.

    In this day aspirations star decayed
    It was the light of our desires
    A fire burns in the mind
    Torching once fundamental truths
    -Love for life fades away/is burnt away by the world

    Downfall
    Self loathing it's your state of mind
    Drowning in dejection
    Homicidal of your talents
    It's mental suicide
    - Hating himself, wanting to die

    Downfall
    One by one they all drown
    Down the path I can't hear
    - when peopel try to reach him he can't hear them, they are drowned out by his self-hatred/sorrow

    To feel this pain with you
    To feel this pain with you
    To feel this pain I'm falling to grey
    To feel this pain with you
    - People feel sorry for him and it pains them, and falling to grey perhaps means he's dying

    Buried dreams will withered dried
    Sorrow is your guide
    - Desire to fufil his dreams are gone and replaced with sorrow

    You haven't the will to carry on
    You'll feel better when you're gone
    - The voice in his heads saying he can't live anymore, and when he's dead it'll all be better

    If I may realign the scriptures
    For fallacy's decay
    Reclamation of the spirit
    First step in taking back your life
    - Trying to pull himself out of sorrow and self-hate

    General CommentThis has to be about suicide.
    E.g.
    You haven't the will to carry on
    You'll feel better when you're gone
    Downfall
    One by one they all drown
    Down the path I can't hear
