"Rise From The Ashes (EP version)" as written by and Kevin Truckenmiller....
I felt this way before
I fell right through the floor
And I am certain I've become
Broken, bruised, and numb
Would you restate your opinion
And hold back your investigation
Do you see the sins you're making
Cause I've made them all before

I will now rise from the ashes
Don't call me pretentious
I'm sitting here making my own rules
And if I fall from the ceiling
You'll be down there waiting
And my only hope
Is falling down

And by my own admission
You'll find that my condition
Is worse than you imagined
You're better off if you know
But every time before that I
Tried to measure pain inside
You can't ignore it
Right now I can't ignore it

I will now rise from the ashes
Don't call me pretentious
I'm sitting here making my own rules
And if I fall from the ceiling
You'll be down there waiting
To finish me

Inside of me (x7)
I'll take my heart
And rip my feelings out
Before they make me doubt
And I'll fall down with flames burning
Alive again
As long as you know that

I will now rise from the ashes
Don't call me pretentious
I'm sitting here making my own rules
And if I fall from the ceiling
You'll be down there waiting
To finish me
Finish me

    General CommentI'm thinking maybe "rise from the ashes" means maybe like rising up and taking over a situation...? Like he says "I'm sitting here making my own rules"... and maybe there was somebody he was depending on, but they let him down.
    "And if I fall from the ceiling
    You'll be down there waiting
    To finish me"
    Just thought i'd throw those ideas out...
    I like how they've got "Fall from the ceiling" in there, because it's the name of their EP. Great song, great band!

    General CommentI think the song is about love and a fight and how it hurts some times he says

    "I felt this way before
    I fell right through the floor
    And I am certain I've become
    Broken, bruised, and numb"

    And it seems like he's being accused of something but he has also has wrongfully accused her of things.

    "Would you restate your opinion
    And hold back your investigation
    Do you see the sins you're making
    Cause I've made them all before"

    I think it hurts him greatly and he tries to tell her but she ignores him.

    "And by my own admission
    You'll find that my condition
    Is worse than you imagined
    You're better off if you know
    But every time before that I
    Tried to measure pain inside
    You can't ignore it
    Right now I can't ignore it"

    It seems he feels so bad about everything, he never wants to be doubted and he doesnt want to ever doubt her.

    "Inside of me (x7)
    I'll take my heart
    And rip my feelings out
    Before they make me doubt
    And I'll fall down with flames burning
    Alive again
    As long as you know that"

    The chorus i think is about him rising up "from the ashes" "to the ceiling" and putting all the pain and hurt behind him and he knows if he goes back "Fall from the ceiling" she gonna be there and the pain will kill him. "You'll be down there waiting, To finish me"
