"Breaking Me Down" as written by Shaun D. Glass, Timothy William King, Ryan S. Mccombs, Thomas M. Schofield and Adam Victor Zadel....
Let it go
How far will a falling star take me
How far can I go can I go
Gotta be what the nightmare made me
Gotta be gotta be what I see
Jump clear of the falling parts from me
How far will they go will they go
Can't give what you need from me baby
Just let it go

Bringing me down break me down sweet sugar
Bringing me down break me down
Breaking me down to the ground sweet baby
Breaking me down to the ground

Too much is made of what's in me
Not enough about how I strive
Keep an eye on your world it's cheating
Keep an eye keep an eye on me
Deep inside there's a little place for me
A little place for me
Can't give what you want from me baby
Just leave it be

Sweet razor wound
Deep down slice my groove
Sweet razor wound
Deep down c'mon and slice it

How far did the falling star take me
How far did it go did it go
Had to be what the nightmare made me
Fuck, just had to be
Jump clear of the falling parts form me
How far did they go did they go
Can't give what you want from me baby
Hell, just let it go

    General Commentmy take:

    accept who you are. "gotta be what the nightmare made me." It's about realizing who you are, the true person created by whatever trials you have gone through. cut off the falseness and bullcrap, let it fall away, and accept who you are.
    "sweet baby?" people get to know and love/hate the person they see. but when you realize that you need to change, need to be who you are, these people tend to can get hurt, and often can't be a part of your life anymore. but you've got to be who you are.
    slice your way to honesty

    General CommentI think this song's about going back to simplicity. Yeah he's hurting and lifes bad for him but he's found this girl and shes breaking him down in a good way making him himself again and even tho he feels like hes gotta be what his bad life has made him, in reality he loves how this girl is lookin after him n breaking him down to a simpler life where he can be his true self... but the girl wants something in return he cant give her. he just cares for himself and hes letting her do it to him pretending he doesnt like it.

    that prob dint make any sense. im so tired. lol sorry

    General CommentLike shamandown, I'd agree that this song is about being yourself. He has to be what the nightmare made him, meaning that his struggles have defined him. He's being what he sees. He's also trying very hard to change, but no one seems to see that ("too much is made of what's in me, not enough of how I strive"). They all want sudden, dramatic results, which are rather unrealistic. It's breaking him down, along with everything else, because the expectations are too damned high. He wants them all to "just let it go."

    General CommentI agree with the he is trying to change but in a different way. I think he is trying to change because he is seeing how fucked up he use to be and how he acted. I think I am probibly 80% right because he is asking himself how far did he really drift off from being himself? I think but im not positive is the part where he is saying bringing me down break me down sweet suger is he is actually talking to someone he is in a relationship with? Someone is breaking him down and he is realilzing that she is right and he is asking himself how far did he really drift from the original person he use to be. The nightmare part also goes alot with realilzing the fact that you did turn into an asshole and you have to live with it.
