"As You're Falling Down" as written by and Max Green Brian Money....
As you're falling down,(falling down)
(As you're falling down)
My heart beats the same,(beats the same)
And the tears now,(tears now)
(And the tears now)
Run down your face,

If you had class you'd throw down with me,
Drown in your fake personality,
Shattered glass and frames,
(Shattered glass and frames)
Snapshots of reality,
Burned pictures and memories,
Your heart's cold and grey,

[Chorus:]
To whom it may concern,
(You stayed the same,[x3])
I'm the same,
And all that I've learned,
(You stayed the same,[x3])
Has faded away,

Can you tell me,
All the lies that you have told,
All the lies that you have said?
So keep on lying,
(Just keep on lying to me)
I find less beauty in life then death,

If you had class you'd throw down with me,
Drown in your fake personality,
Shattered glass and frames,
(Shattered glass and frames)
Snapshots of reality,
Burned pictures and memories,
Your heart's cold and grey,

[Chorus]

(I know you,)The blood still stains,
(I know why,)Don't feel the same,

As you're falling down,(falling down)
(As you're falling down)
My heart beats the same,
And the tears now,(tears now)
(And the tears now)
Run down your face,

[Chorus]

To whom it may concern,
(You stayed the same,[x3])
(Can you tell me?)
I'm the same,
And all that I've learned,
(You stayed the same,[x3])
(As you're falling down)
Has faded away, away.

    General CommentAhhh, I LOVE Escape The Fate. Discovered them from MySpace and bought their EP off iTunes. I've had it on repeat for some time now. =P

    I think these lyrics are mostly correct. I just keep hearing: "To Whom It May Concern, I'm the same. And all that I've learned has faded away." Not "You stayed the same."

    And I think they're saying "Can you tell me all the lies that you have said" not "All the lies that you have told". Not sure, though. Maybe I'm not hearing things right. -shrug-

    I think this song is saying how everyone is changing and no one is how they used to be, acting like someone else with their "fake personalities".

    General CommentI think what it's supposed to be is

    "To whom it may concern:
    [You've stayed the same, you've stayed the same]
    I'm the same

    And all that I've learned
    [You've stayed the same, you've stayed the same]
    Has fade away"

    General Commentyea theyve changed a bit...heres the real version:

    As you're falling down,(falling down)
    (As you're falling down)
    My heart beats the same,(beats the same)
    And the tears now,(tears now)
    (And the tears now)
    Run down your face,

    If you had class you'd throw down with me,
    Drown in your fake personality,
    Shattered glass and frames,
    (Shattered glass and frames)
    Snapshots of reality,
    Burned pictures and memories,
    Your heart's cold and grey,

    [Chorus:]
    To whom it may concern,
    (You stayed the same,[x3])
    I'm the same,
    And all that I've learned,
    (You stayed the same,[x3])
    Has faded away,

    Can you tell me,
    All the lies that you have told,
    All the lies that you have said?
    So keep on lying,
    (Just keep on lying to me)
    I find less beauty in life then death,

    If you had class you'd throw down with me,
    Drown in your fake personality,
    Shattered glass and frames,
    (Shattered glass and frames)
    Snapshots of reality,
    Burned pictures and memories,
    Your heart's cold and grey,

    [Chorus]

    (I know you,)The blood still stains,
    (I know why,)Don't feel the same,

    As you're falling down,(falling down)
    (As you're falling down)
    My heart beats the same,
    And the tears now,(tears now)
    (And the tears now)
    Run down your face,

    [Chorus]

    To whom it may concern,
    (You stayed the same,[x3])
    (Can you tell me?)
    I'm the same,
    And all that I've learned,
    (You stayed the same,[x3])
    (As you're falling down)
    Has faded away, away.
