"Falling Down" as written by Benjamin Paul Ballance-drew, Tom Wright-goss, Eric Anthony Appapoulay and Richard David Cassell....
You're always looking back,runnin' from the past
You're always sweating me about the next big heart attack
You're lookin' over your shoulder starin' down the path
(I'm fallin' down)
Fallin' down
Fallin' down

It's in your head all the voices mistaken
Shake it off shake it off
We're all dyin' in the end

It's in your head all the voices mistaken
Shake it off shake it off
We're all dyin' in the end

It's in your head all the voices mistaken
Shake it off shake it off
We're all dyin' in the end

I fear I'll find the evident so horrible
So horrible
To clear my thoughts I drill a hole into my skull
Clean up my brains and sweep them underneath the rug
I need them more than I needed any other drug
I'm fallin' down
Fallin' down
Fallin' down

It's in your head all the voices mistaken
Shake it off shake it off
We're all dyin' in the end

It's in your head all the voices mistaken
Shake it off shake it off
We're all dyin' in the end

It's in your head all the voices mistaken
Shake it off shake it off
We're all dyin' in the end

Hey, hey, hey
Come on

I'm fallin' down
Fallin' down
Fallin' down

It's in your head all the voices mistaken
Shake it off shake it off
We're all dyin' in the end

It's in your head all the voices mistaken
Shake it off shake it off
We're all dyin' in the end

    General CommentWow, just because Atreyu decides to exercise some artistic freedom the "hardcore" fans label it as bad or start bitching about how the band isn't what it used to be. Damn, yo, learn to appreciate the music for what it is, not what you expect it to be. I don't buy albums because I want to hear the same stuff over and over again, I love change. Hence why I like this song. It's different. So disregard the opinions of those such as "forever haunted" and people with his/her mindset. If they're the real fans, I don't think I want to be one.

    By the way the video is kind of funny; set in the 50's with a huge brawl scene lol

    General Commentthis song is good it reminds me of atreyu from suicide notes i think this song has something to do with either the end of a relationship that has turned him inside out or this could be alex writing about dome skeletons in his closet and secrects that hav been bothering him

    General CommentSounds ALOT like The Used on Lies For The Liars (instrumentally). Listen to Paralyzed on that CD. Great song(s). Feldmann did a good job

    General Commentyou had a right to laugh crimsonangel... the song is a satire.. they wrote the song to mock the style of pop rock bands like green day and such... did anyone look at the lyrics??

    1st verse
    the people are leaving their past trying to get into the next big fad.. when they get the chance they look back at the past

    2nd verse
    he finds what they do sad gets rid of all the hype and bs he sweeps the bs out of sight, but he realizes he needs his brain, his thoughts, memories and intelligence more than anything to get out of this situation

    im falling down...
    "im tired of trying to clean up the mess"
    chorus
    basically the person is suicidal because they ignore their past and get caught up in the fads and are caught between two worlds they hear voices, telling them to kill themselves or something similar and atreyu is saying shut the hell up, live your life, were all dying in the end

    this song is in no way like suicide notes... it is totally different in every way i can think of... but it is still an awesome song, one of my faves of the cd...
