"In Vain" as written by and Matthew Joseph Nadolski David Michael Nadolski....
The evidence was there for you to point the finger,
A momentary lapse cast me into oblivion.
Am I wasting all this time
Just trying to find the world in your eyes?
I've been holding back myself
But I'm closer to the edge.

Dusk approaches, I'm standing in the city light.

Am I here in vain?
Did you not hear a word I said
When I asked you, I begged you, to just please let me through.
I have falllen now, will you pick me up again?
In the face of my failures,
I just want you to hear these words.

Forget the obvious mistakes so I can breathe
Let me offer you all that I can give
Don't shut me out again
I'll shake but I will stand
I'm slipping constantly
I'm falling off the end

Am I here in vain?
Did you not hear a word I said
When I asked you, I begged you, to just please let me through.
I have falllen now, will you pick me up again?
In the face of my failures,
I just want you to hear these words.

Am I here in vain?
Did you not hear a word I said
When I asked you, I begged you, to just please let me through.
I have falllen now, will you pick me up again?
In the face of my failures,
I just want you to hear these words.

    General CommentI agree with triviumfan they're a great new band. I like this song a lot.

    I think this song is about someone, maybe parents, being disappointed in what there child does. The child is trying to figure out if he/she is just trying to make their parents see that what they're doing makes them is all an effort in vain. Great song and I'm probably wrong

    General CommentI think this song is about a relationship. This person (the singer) has something wrong with them. Possibly a drug addiction or something like that that would hinder the other person from fully accepting them. So, the singer is falling for this person, but she doesn't accept him ("Am I wasting all this time
    Just trying to find the world in your eyes?" as well as "Don't shut me out again"). He is trying to get across to this girl in the song as shown in: "I just want you to hear these words.

    Forget the obvious mistakes so I can breathe
    Let me offer you all that I can give
    Don't shut me out again
    I'll shake but I will stand
    I'm slipping constantly
    I'm falling off the end"

    What I think he is trying to say is: Yeah, I may have problems that I need to work on, But I want you to see me for who I am and quit pushing me away. I will have my get knocked down every once in a while, But I want you to be there helping me back up again.

    That's just my interpretation. Really good song by the way.
