"After the Fall" as written by and Mark Prendergast Stephen Garrigan....
People keep talking
But I can't hear a word they say
Life just keeps moving
The world gets stranger every day

And, yeah, "Time is on your side"
That's what people tell you
But I got to let you go

My head is saying that this is for the better
I just want you to know
I can't hold on forever
When all I wanna do is let go
All I wanna do is let go

Sirens are screaming
But I can't hear a single sound
And I'm feeling uneasy
And I wait, and I wait for a change to come around

I get the feeling that this is for the better
And I just want you to know
I can't hold on forever
When all I wanna do is let go (Yeah)
All I wanna do is let go

Are you searching for an answer
Or just peace of mind?
When your life has lost its meaning
Maybe you need a little time

Are you searching for an answer
Or just peace of mind?
When your life has lost its meaning
Maybe you need a little time

    General Commenthe uses an extended metaphor of time. he thinks time is against him; it is passing too quickly. i think he's trying to say he needs to let go of someone/something as it's 'for the better' but he doesn't want to.

    General CommentThis song is about someone who feels like they are wasting their life, time is moving so quickly that they have lost control and feel as if life is losing its meaning. They want to make the most of what they have left and are realising they have to let go of what they have to do so. They are mocking the world with the sentence 'when your life has lost its meaning, maybe you need a little time' but they know that that is just an excuse to let time pass you and doesn't want to let it happen to them.
