"Falling Away" as written by Benji Madden and Joel Madden....
And tonight we burn down everything
We worked so hard to build
The ashes will reign down on me
Memories set aflame, sail away
What we said if we can make this
Then we can break this into two
Memories

I feel you fallin' away
I feel you fallin' away
I feel you fallin' away from me again
I feel you fallin' away
I feel you fallin' away
I feel you fallin' away from me again

And tonight I will be a vessel
With these sails set aflame
Let this ocean of our memories
Carry me out to sea I will be
Fall beneath the crashing waves into my grave
I will sleep

I feel you fallin' away
I feel you fallin' away
I feel you fallin' away from me again
I feel you fallin' away
I feel you fallin' away
I feel you fallin' away from me again
I feel you fallin' away
I feel you fallin' away
I feel you fallin' away from me again
I feel you fallin' away
I feel you fallin' away
I feel you fallin' away from me again

If we can make this
Then we can break it
If we can build it
Then we can burn it down

I feel you fallin' away
I feel you fallin' away
I feel you fallin' away from me again
I feel you fallin' away
I feel you fallin' away
I feel you fallin' away from me again
I feel you fallin' away
I feel you fallin' away
I feel you fallin' away from me again

And now you're farther away
Now you're farther away
Now you're farther away from me again
Now you're farther away from me again
Now you're farther away from me again
Now you're farther away from me again

    General CommentWell, it's obvious that he feels someone (who I presume is close to him) is distancing from him.
    'And tonight I will be a vessel
    with these sails set aflame
    let this ocean of our memories
    carry me out to sea I will be
    fall beneath the crashing waves into my grave
    I will sleep.' To me these are very powerful lyrics, and suggest that he feels the memories that he and this person spent together are consuming his thoughts. Just my opinion ^^.

    General Commentthis is a great song. let me guess, everyone got the 'Death' cd?!?!?

    yeah this song has good meaning...it's got a sad meaning with a happy theme. it kinda gets you confused, but listen to it a few times and you will know what i mean.
