"The Rise And Fall" as written by and Taylor/fyfe Armstrong....
Crucifix, round my neck, for protection
Hold it and pray, as I find my direction
I got no love, for the drugs, you're injectin
The come down, come on now
Feel a little bit of life trickle out

And I've been coming around
Cuz I've been coming down
Once lost and now I'm found
Come down, come on now
Feel a little bit of life trickle out

The purest heart and a mind with some lessons
Stick to my guns in a world full of weapons
I got no time for the void you're protectin
The come down, come on now
Feel a little bit of life trickle out

And I've been coming around
Cuz I've been coming down
Once lost and now I'm found
Come down, come on now
Feel a little bit of life trickle out

C-c-c-come on the highway honey
And see my shining disease
C-c-c-come on my way crazy
And bow down before you leave

C-c-c-comin clean and see my shining disease, now baby
C-c-c-comin clean, now see my fuckin disease
C-c-c-comin clean and see my shining disease, now baby
C-c-c-comin clean, now see my fuckin disease

And I've been coming around
Cuz I've been coming down
Once lost and now I'm found

    General CommentThis has got one of the best intro's I've ever heard in a song ever.

    I think it's about having come over addiction, seeing other people falling victim, and finding solace in the fact that the person has over come it

    General CommentAnd I agree, I think it's about someone coming off an addiction but suffering withdrawls.
