"Fallout" as written by Myles Kennedy and Mark Tremonti....
Oooooo.
Another river runs against the grain
Another is born
Each filled with anguish
Deep within he's dying every day
To find his way
He is lost
So consumed

Can you feel him somewhere in the fallout
Is someone just like you
Who's lost to find the truth
Can you hear him from afar he cries out
For the answer to be shown
As he dares to walk the fallout on his own

So frustrated
He walks the line alone
Courage sets him apart
He is so famished
All he once embraced he now disowns
He let it go
All the while
He still waits

Can you feel him somewhere in the fallout
He is someone just like you
Who's lost to find the truth
Can you hear him from afar he cries out
For the answer to be shown
As he dares to walk the fallout on his own

Left behind he's walking burning still he tries
To unearth the meaning to this life
Cast aside his weary bleeding (?)
Disconnected still he fights to the lost (?)

Can you feel him somewhere in the fallout
Is someone just like you
Who's lost to find the truth
Can you hear him from afar he cries out
For the answer to be shown
As he dares to walk the fallout on his own

    General CommentLeft behind he's walking burning still he tries
    To unearth the meaning to this life
    Cast aside his weary bleeding to behold
    Disconnected still he fights for truth alone

    Straight out of the book

    General CommentOne of my favorites from AB III. Great intro and excellent solo by Mark, Passionate singing by Mylesh.. Also the meaning seems obvious as the "losing faith and innocence" theme of the album applies to this song perfectly.

    Lyric CorrectionI could be wrong but I think the first verse should read:

    Another rebel runs against the grain
    A loner is born
    He's filled with anguish
    Deep within he's dying every day
    To find his way
    He is lost, so consumed.

    General Comment@xxxJanexxx... yeah i think you're right about the lyrics.
    anyway,

    what's the fallout? maybe the negative consequences of your choices and actions? i like how the chorus makes you feel like you're not alone: even though your lost, there's hope b/c there are ppl out there just like you who are struggling....and more importantly ppl who have overcome and found what life is about.

    i like alter bridge....this song should be a single.

    My InterpretationThis song is awesome. It has some of the best lyrics Alter Bridge have ever written, I think.
    But this song holds a special meaning for me because it perfectly describes my bf....or now ex-bf. He's so deep and so epic, but he doesn't even know. I'm still in love with the rebel in this song, but he's a loner by nature, I reckon. There's nothing I can do but hope and pray...that he'll find his way in the fallout.

    General CommentI feel that Alter bridge's Fallout, is a Fallout caused by decisions taken with good intentions, taking that path and finding out (maybe too late) that such path was doomed. By personal experience I think that life is so ruthless that you can end up in a fallout, even without making big mistakes, even a series of "small" decisions can spell disaster. Anyways, this is a great song, I -am- walking on my own fallout right now, but this song makes me feel I have "a courage that sets me apart" to walk out of the fallout. The great thing about this song is that when I first heard it it was nice and all, but the real bond developed when I was walking on a fallout, I listened to it and understood I had to push forward.
