"Fall Behind" as written by and Matthew Mayfield....
It’s creeping around the bend
Death illuminates our lives relive within
Like a black sunrise
Reality takes shape and form and fills the skies
Some questions will fade these will remain

Are you? Are you gonna fall behind?
Do you? Do you feel these holes in your lies?

Looking ‘round to see
Everybody racing towards the end with me
Made me slit my wrists
Let love wrap itself around my fingertips
Some questions will fade these will remain

Are you? Are you gonna fall behind?
Do you? Do you feel these holes in your lies?
I said do you? Do you feel these holes in your lies?
Oh, yeah
These walls

I know you may tire in these pools of tears
Don’t fade out it’s almost here
The final hour
Hour

Said are you? Are you gonna fall behind?
Said do you? Do you feel these holes in your lies?
Are you? Are you gonna fall behind?
Do you? Do you feel these holes in your lise?
Are you? Are you gonna fall behind?
Do you? Do you feel these holes in your lies?

Creeping ‘round the bend
Death illuminates our lines relive within

    General CommentThis is such a deep song. It's about death and that it's something that can't be escaped. "Some questions fade these will remain". The idea of suicide seems to be littered in this song as well. "Maybe slit my wrist".

    No matter how much good you did in your life, all your lies and bad things you did will come to light at the moment of death. There's a lot more to this song than that...

    Get the EP-Live at Workplay. Awesome!

    General CommentCorrections to these lyrics...
    I believe it is,
    "Do you? Do you feel these holes in your life?"
    and
    "Maybe slit my wrists,
    Or let love wrap itself around my fingertips".
    aaand:
    "Death illuminates our lives we live within"


    This is such a amazing song.
    "Don’t fade out, it’s almost here".
    It's giving hope to the people that feel like there's no escaping their situation. Beautiful.

    General Commentafter listening to the words way too many times, this is what i figured on the lyrics. pretty much an echo of what 'thisholidaystacee' said with some small differences...

    "Death illuminates the lines we live within."

    "Do you? Do you feel these holes in your life?"

    "Maybe slit my wrists, And let love wrap itself around my fingertips."

    this last one's a bit trickier because i can't be completely sure he even officially intended to add a word between "my wrists..." and "...let love"---if he did, however, the version of this song from 'the live EP' sounds much more like "And".........between "Or" and "And"........."AND" makes more sense.

    they may seem like really picky stuff, but the difference in 1 or 2 words can change the meaning of a song. i.e.--"Or" is a choice. "And" is a follow up.

    i now i didn't comment on meaning, but it's easy to get the wrong meaning with the wrong words.
