"Falling Through Your Clothes" as written by and Carl Allan Newman....
Pinwheel spark break loose and roll
Where you stop nobody knows
Just a thought but gone down
It's been carved into a point understand

Turned into someone that you only know
When you're falling through your clothes

Run run run deep breath then jump
Roll with your vertigo stomp
Now you're clear but gone down
You've been cleared of every charge understand

You've turned into someone that you only know
When you're falling through your clothes

    General Commentit seems like the chorus could either be referring to an anorexic (so thin that nothing that they own fits) or possibly to someone who sleeps around (they only feel like themselves when they're taking their clothes off). The rest is up for grabs.

    General CommentThe chorus is wrong. The line "Someone that you only" should be "Saying that you want me".

    General Commenti think this song might be about someone who is mindlessly going through life. Some who is constantly making mistakes and hurting people around them. hey they might be a prostitute, hence the "you're falling through your clothes"!

    General CommentI think this song is about someone whose had a hard life, or has done bad things. This song is saying to "break loose and roll." They used the idea of the wheel of a toy breaking off the stick as a way to just get away. As for the clothes, I think that getting rid of her clothes or "falling through" them could just mean to start new, or get rid of the memories with those clothes.

    General CommentI agree with Penguinculus...the line is definitely

    turned into
    someone that you only
    someone that you only
    know
    when you're falling through your clothes

    I take this to mean that the person is looking for fulfillment or self-esteem by having sex with a lot of different people. They only "know" their self as somebody who sleeps around...it's become their identity. Kind of powerful but sad too.
