Fall back to zero
Come back to life

You can’t hold me down
You can’t hold me down

That light ahead has always shown the way
That voice above is why I’m here today

Take all my sorrow - leave all my love
You can’t hold me down
You can’t hold me down

That light ahead has always shown the way
That voice above is why I’m here today

A better life has grown from all the pain
A stronger mind is what I long to gain

    My InterpretationI think this song is about rebirth or new beginnings. The way I interpret this song is along the lines of every time we end up back at square one, it’s an opportunity to start again, afresh, learning from our mistakes. The first pair of lines really point at this.

    “You can’t hold me down” indicates to me that while some experiences may make you falter, as long as you believe in yourself, you can be strong enough to be cope with anything life throws at you.

    The next pair of lines makes me think of a teaching or text, or an inspirational figure or hero who has encouraged this belief in learning from his mistakes and that this inspiration is where we can draw the above mentioned strength from.

    “Take all my sorrow — leave all my love” makes me think of the healing process of getting over something, where you can organise and process your feelings and thoughts. When something ends, it’s an opportunity to cleanse your thoughts and feelings.

    The last pair of lines reiterates the ‘learn from your mistakes’ idea and that we should welcome all experience, not just positive ones.

    My OpinionThis is one of my fav's off this album. I think sometimes we forget what music is really all about - and that is the expression of human emotion - and when put to such epic music like crowbar it takes on an even more amazing and powerful quality. Really good music I think speaks to us on a more universal level than any other form of communication. That's why it's called the universal form of communication. I've heard Kirk talk about this idea of music being emotion, and obviously the guy sings and plays from the heart - and I can really feel it alot of times.
