When it all falls down at once.
Gonna try to get some sleep.
And the contents of this bed...
Have shattered to pieces.
I have a knack for feeling lost.
All those times I couldn't eat.
Like I could barely love.
I'm getting tired of screaming.
(Getting tired of screaming)

The sun comes up,
and now you have a chance again.
The world falls down,
we all forget where to begin.
The world collapses.
You hold it in...

Maybe I have said too much.
Or merely haven't said enough.
All these words they come undone.
I'm getting lost in the meaning.
I'm feeling coldness in my thoughts.
I'm getting frozen all alone.
In a world that we destroyed...
I'm trying to pick up the pieces.

The sun comes up,
and now you have a chance again.
The world falls down,
we all forget where to begin.
The world collapses.
You hold it in...

The sun comes up,
and now you have a chance again.

All you've loved...
Leave yourself, you drift away in your arms.
Hoping as you catch me,
caught before I hit the ground.
I'm dying for you to hold me.
The feeling is forever happy.
All at once, all at once.

The sun comes up,
and now you have a chance again.
The world falls down,
we all forget where to begin.
The world collapses.
You hold it in...

The world collapses.
You hold it in...

The sun comes up,
and now you have a chance again.

(So sleep now, together, in peace)

    General CommentIs this the first positive song by The Used? No other comes to mind, pretty refreshing this one... starting over, having a chance... I could really use its message right now.

    I just listened to it (paying attention) today, nice arrangements and stuff.

    General Commentscarecrow826, oh shut the fuck up. You don't even fucking realize the point of this kind of music at all. Yeah, I hate people who bitch about how bad their lives is but thats not what this is. It's fucking talking about feelings. Or are you such an insensitive prick that you don't know what thats like?

    I pity your lack of acknowledgment and understanding of the human brain and emotions.

    Do the world a favor and eliminate yourself from existence for your close-minded bullshit.

    General Commentthis is a SONG MEANINGS site...I cannot put any more emphasis how obvious that is. Scarecrow, it's good that you have an opinion of your own but wtf!?! does your bitch session about 'the used' have to do with the URL of this site. *shakes head* Ironic how the EP is 'Shallow believer' if I didn't know any better the used foresaw your comment before you even wrote it you asswipe.

    I friggin sick of seeing comments posted by haters. F-OFF !

    I like this song very much =D
    I like their new songs . I like change and it's not bad to listen to at all. The meaning is obvious I guess but I'll write what i think it means anyways.
    I think this song is about a relationship, any relationship, between two people that ended badly and the person in this POV of the song is going through the process of being emotionally wrecked and having regrets, wallowing in their sadness.
    "In a world that we destroyed...
    I'm trying to pick up the pieces."
    I think it means they're trying to fix the relationship

    They realise that there's always hope, symbolism of the 'the sun comes up'. New beginnings
    "The world collapses, you hold it in" to me means that the person has had the weight of the world on their shoulders and it was kept in balance but then disaster hit and they can't rise up again emotionally. On the outside they look calm but in the inside they're in deeper turmoil. they bottled up their emotions.

    It's a bit like saying relationships always have it's highs and lows but true love endures all obstacles and gives chance for new beginnings.

    General CommentI find it funny that a bunch of girls are ganging up on me because of how much they love the Used. What a disillusioned, pathetic state you are in.

    I have a personal stake in my dislike for crap like this music, but did it occur to you that I might be just someone who disses on this stuff for kicks? Don't you think I might find it HILARIOUS when a bunch of pmsing wenches go off because people they will never meet's credibility is in question?

    Do NOT go toe to toe with me, and spread your crap over to myspace, you miserable children. This is a public site, I would prefer for you to not bitch at me about your personal problems on any site, because I don't care about you, or whatever it is all you clones stand for these days.

    General CommentI am sorry to hear that you are so niave.
    I'm done insulting you, because that's obviously not helping anything since all you do is throw back the same thing you hit us with in the first place.

    That is pretty much all I have to say to you about that.

    Well, that and...

    If you really are as old as you say you are on the internet, then learn to act more like it.

    I'm not saying I'm more mature than you, it's just that you try to act like you're SO much better than us.
    But you're not.

    You say we're so pathetic and we're such little emo clone miserable "children", but you're the one acting like a child for fucking around like this in the first place.

    You were asking for people to give you shit about it, and that's why you posted.

    General CommentYou're dillusional if you label us 'emo'. Look up the TRUE meaning of that term, not the one MTV created just for ratings, before you go around putting bubble wrap boxes around us. Those who listen and love the used aren't 'emo'. We are people with NAMES. So don't coin us with a term that restricts our potential asswipe. We don't know you and you don't know us. For all we know ppl who post on bands like the used, could listen to metal like In flames, At the gates, Insomnium, SOAD, soilwork, unearth etc even friggin BRITNEY SPEARS !

    Music doesn't define US. It should be something we like and listen too scarecrow.

    And those ppl who refer to as myspace clones, are the whole GODDAMN world. Open your mind and eyes, you have a poor sense of judgement and lack of insight to hate on something as insignificant as that.

    Go hate on something more worthwhile like your healthcare system, war, substance abuse, poverty, better yet YOURSELF.

    General CommentYou stop telling me I'm a child when you're searching me out on myspace, and I'll start listening to you, clones.

    General CommentAnd for the record, I never said I was better than anyone, chemicalnirvana. I just have a better grip of reality than you do.

    You're fourteen years old. You're searching me out on myspace to tell me I'm a douchebag and that I'm insecure if I respond to you.

    Just think about that for two minutes.
