"On Falling Leaf" as written by Brian Mcternan, Nicholas Ray Maldonado, Marc Christopher Kohlbry, Tanner Lee Sparks, Chad Daniel Ackerman and Duane David Reed....
I watch and cry
And hold on to his legs
As mother waits outside
For her son to come

I've seen too much
I haven't seen enough
You haven't seen enough
Until you see the family breaking up

No one
(It's like nothing you've felt before)
No one should ever feel like, like this
(I'll cry but my tears won't lock the doors)

No one
(It's like throwing away those years)
No one should ever live like this
And I'll cry but my tears won't keep you here
Or keep us together

Fathers and mothers
Know that your sons and your daughters
They might, might walk a road that is harder

And it's because the choices you've made
Or the ones that you make
And we have lived with your blood on our hands
What we've been waiting for, now it's our chance

We will stand, sisters and brothers
From broken homes and broken lovers
We will stand for something now
(Stand for something true)

No one
(It's like nothing you've felt before)
No one should ever feel like, like this
(I'll cry but my tears won't lock the doors)

No one
(It's like throwing away those years)
No one should ever live like this
And I'll cry but my tears won't keep you here
Or keep us together

Where others have failed, we will make it
Where families derail, we won't lose track
We'll start the trail, our kin will take in
We'll fight tooth and nail, when lies attack

Falling leaf, falling leaf
Falling leaf, falling leaf

    General CommentIt's about divorce, and those feelings the children have after.

    Then it goes on to tell everyone to stand and realize what choices the parents make have on their children.
