I'm not afraid of them
they cant control me now
becoming who i am is standing for who you are

when things are falling apart
i won't abandon you

no one is coming to save us now
the world is falling and i'm surrounded


i've watched you slip away
don't say you haven't changed
you know i've known you from the start
i've seen the worst in you
i see you leading them astray

you can't control me

    Song MeaningI'm not afraid of them
    they cant control me now
    becoming who i am is standing for who you are

    This is pretty much saying how he is not afraid of those critisizing him for being a christian because he is all about standing for God.

    when things are falling apart
    i won't abandon you

    Even when things go wrong for him he wont be against God.

    no one is coming to save us now
    the world is falling and i'm surrounded

    not sure what this means :(

    i've watched you slip away
    don't say you haven't changed
    you know i've known you from the start
    i've seen the worst in you
    i see you leading them astray.

    Now he is talking about somebody who has slipped away from the things of God and others who follow God are starting to follow him and slip away from God.

    you can't control me


    He won't let the person who is leading everybody else astray lead him away from God.

    General CommentHeavy opener, but not at all unpleasant. Strong plea of strength against opposition, yes, most likely faith-based opposition.
