"The Sky Is Falling" as written by William Roy Francis, Angel Dejesus Ibarra and Jacob Samuel Davison....
I hear the sky is falling here we are, on empty
I feel my heart is turning black tonight, safely
If all we are are dust and shades of grey
How are we to say are we all alone

Because I'm empty
To the fire that blinded who we are, silence
Take a picture let it breathe alright, remindless
All with words and the fiction in your eyes
I'm taking off my disguise with you all alone
Cause I'm empty, are you empty? Are you empty tonight?

Now kiss me one last time
And bring me back to life
Bring me back to life
Now kiss me one last time
And bring me back to life
Bring me back to life

[Chorus]
I know the sky is falling here we are, I'm empty
I feel the world keeps spinning am I high? safely
If we all we are is dust and shades of grey
And how I wanted to say
Are you all alone? cause I'm empty
Are you empty? are you empty tonight?
And all I fear tonight

Fiction will get us through the night (The sky is falling)
[x7]

    General Commentnoiseahollic you had a great opinion on the lyrics.
    but this song is another about drugs. "the world is spinning, am i high?"
    It's talking about the aftershock of abuse of drugs.
    How you will feel empty and alone w/out them.

    General Commenthey i found this from an interview with wil:
    'The Sky Is Falling is about waking up in the morning and feeling like you want all of this to be done, and not to live in the world anymore, but getting out of that and flipping that around and fully believing that you're here for a reason. I might not know what that is, but I'm here because of something, and it's because of fate. the last line of the song is 'will fiction get us through the night?/conviction will get us through the night'. that's something that I really feel inside my heart, believing in myself and believing in the people around me.'

    its from kerrang!

    General CommentHavent u guys heard that they r say they r changing their attitudes and not talking about nightmares and bad things anymore and they do still write about nightmares but they only do it in a limited view they do talk about it but they tell how to solve your problems and lets stop the hate and just listen to their beautiful music and this site is made for SONG MEANINGS not really comment but it wouldnt hurt to comment

    General Commentthis is such a mellow song with a depressing air to it. its very beautiful and tugs at my heartstrings everytime I listen to it. for some reason I always picture a girl lying on her bed and just staring blankly with tears in her eyes at the wall when I hear this song. I always took this song as someone whose life is falling apart. they feel sort of dead. they also have a special someone who is leaving or gone.

    "Now kiss me one last time
    and bring me back to life"

    they want that person to just kiss them one more time and make them happy or "bring them back to life".

    well thats what I always thought of it, but noiseahollic proved me wrong(:

    General Commentpersonaly i think this song is about borderline but thats completly my opinion
    because some lines in the song

    How I wanted to say, are we all alone cause I'm empty.
    (people with borderline feel lonely most timme and think people are going to leave them)

    Armed with words and the fiction in your eyes
    I'm taking off my disguise
    (the disguise is a refference to a shield from the world and act like youre someonce your wish you'd be , and the fiction is about creating an own world)
