"Fallen Man" as written by and Matthew Arnold Thiessen....
As you push it up through the soil,
I will shake your filthy hand.
You may be dead to me but that don't mean we can't be friends.
Now it's time to get over this,
Long as it's clear you understand,
That I will never trust a single thing you say again.

Because the judge of you is someone I could never be,
Is why you should thank the Lord that it is Him, and it's not me.

[Chorus]
Don't give up, it's not the end,
There's hope for every fallen man,
To pick themselves up when they think they can,
Because with every passing second comes a second chance.

You stole so much from me and there is nothing left to take,
Save a hard learned lesson on how to not make the same mistake.
And you may be delirious but that is something that will fade,
After you confess that this mess is all something that you made.

Oh, because the judge of you is someone I could never be,
Is why you should thank the Lord that it is Him, and it's not me.

[Chorus: x2]

Cause with every passing second comes a second chance,
Take a good look at yourself and know,
You've got yourself a ways to go.
But difficult is not impossible,
You can take back all the lost control.
Take a good look at yourself and see,
You'll emerge eventually.
As long as your heart's not too far gone,
From the only thing that can save you from yourself

Forgiveness can be given when you think it can,
Cause with every passing second comes a second chance.

    General Commentmy view:
    mattys talking about a peron with a secular life(maybe did something to the singer? [you took so much from me theres nothing left to take]). and the person is doubting that he can ever be forgiven.
    but hes saying that he can't judge him but god is the only one who can.
    wonderful song, i actually found it better then the single "must have done something right"
    great going TSun, congrats.
    love it.

    General Commentyea, i agree, the other person did something to Matty T, and he's really upset with them, but he realizes he can't judge them for what they did, even if it was something they did to him

    the first two verses are kind of interesting, i'm almost getting a vibe it's about a relationship and the other person did something horrible to him, and he's ready to get over it, and even though the other person is horrible he'll still be friends, he just will never trust that person again

    I also think this is better than Must Have Done Something Right, can't believe this isn't even on the CD, that's crazy, and faking my own suicide is (i thought that wasn't good at all)

    General CommentI agree with the concept of someone doing something so awful to Matt that he can't forgive them. Also that Matt believes even if he can't forgive him this person can still recieve forgiveness from God.

    The lyrics of this song is absolutely amazing. I can't believe it didn't make the cd, Matt is one talented man.

    General CommentWOW!!!
    This song is so truly AMAZING! It has such meaning that is just,,, mind boggling! It tells how even though we may despise people, there is still hope for them(no matter what they have done) "Forgiveness can be given when you think it can,
    Because with every passing second comes a second chance."(I love that part =D)

    General CommentI think this song means that if your living a bad life as a sinner and don't think you can ever be saved don't give up. That God will always forgive you if you ask him.

    General CommentThis song is totally about a heroin addict. I used to think it was just a friend that screwed him over, until I had a friend who became addicted to heroin, it matches everything SO perfectly. "You stole so much from me and there is nothing left to take" heroin addicts steal anything from their friends or family to pawn off and get a fix. And "Take a good look at yourself and know,
    You’ve got yourself a ways to go,
    But difficult is not impossible.
    You can take back all the lost control." totally matches that. My friend who is addicted to heroin has no self control, he's not the same person anymore... He doesn't look the same, he was a huge pimp and every girl wanted him... Now he totally could pass as a zombie. I don't know, I could be way off about the song, but either way it fits perfectly.
