"Falling Asleep" as written by and Robert F. Cavestany....
I'm not sure what's going on
Can't seem to cope; I've gone beyond
Sense to me is obsolete
Can find a strength in a brief retreat
Sights and sounds - they start to blur
These circumstances do occur
There's no hope; I'm going down
Won't be long until I kiss the ground

I'm falling out
There's no lasting

Rock a bye baby
In your deep thoughts
When the night wind blows
It's time to rock
A life with no breaks
The child will fall
Down will come baby
No one cares at all

I'm not sure just what to do
Not up to me, not up to you
Always been a different breed
Something like unplanted seed
Sorry, but I just can't cope
It's not my fault, but there's no hope
I shall not cry; I will not weep
Just drift into eternal sleep

    General CommentBest song off the Act III album. It seems to be about dying. Kickass main riff.

    General CommentThis song is fucking badass.
    Definitely one of my favourite songs the way it bursts into a solo in the beginning.

    Like other songs on the album it seems to be about hopelessness.

    ...Down will come baby no one cares at aaaaaaaaalll followed by the solo... that part is so atmospheric.

    The last part is my favourite though, the guitar effects after each line are so sweet.


    "I'm not sure just what to do
    Not up to me not up to you"
    He has no control over what is happening


    "Always been a different breed
    Something like unplanted seed"
    The singer was allways different, never to become anything

    "Sorry but I just can't cope
    It's not my fault but there's no hope"
    Pretty obvious

    "I shall not cry I will not weep
    Just drift into eternal sleep"
    Passing on with no mourning.
