"Everything Falls Apart" as written by and Peter F Stuart....
I'm drunk and I swear this crescent, is just a curse
I got here by killing off all my friends
I think I figured out my life begins when the fun ends
I got my wings, I'm free to go as I please
yeah, I got my wings, no nothing really pleases me 'till


everything falls apart
then I get to try to put it back together
yeah, it falls apart
you can count on that, count on that
now whether it can

wasn't good, I don't remember much about it
when things start to feel right
you can count on me to start to doubt it
and the devil's know, in the details
now the devil's in my hand, and it's
shoot first apologize later and
another quick end to a sure shots movement
I got what I wanted, now I don't want anything
yeah, I got what I wanted and now my life is just boring 'till

everything falls apart
then I get to try to put it back together
yeah, it falls apart
you can count on that, count on that
now whether it can

I met god this afternoon, riding on an uptown train
I said, "don't you have better things to do?"
he said, "if I do my job, what would you complain about?"
so I let it go to hell, now I have something to do
I said, "I let it go to hell," does that sound familiar to you?

everything falls apart
then I get to try to put it back together
yeah, it falls apart
you can count on that, count on that
now whether it can

well everything falls apart
sooner or later it's gonna come back together
well everything that comes together
sooner or later it's gonna fall apart
pull it all away from you
you're gonna wake up wake
and find a new you

    General CommentOk, lets give this song a bit more credit. He is singing about how every time he gets into something that is actually good, he feels uneasy and restless and needs to go try to find something else. "when things start to feel right you can count on me to start to doubt it." He got into a relationship with some girl and although she falls in love and there is a lot of potential there, after getting what he wants, being sex, he has the urge to keep moving. He doesnt like how he is like that and it makes him feel guilty. He feels guilty for hurting these girls and it makes him feel bad about himself. This is why he references the devil. He asks God why he is like this, where the hell he is, why cant he keep him in line? If God did his job then everything would just be perfect. But God just left it up to him to fix his own problems. One of these days he will wake up and see what he really needs.

    General Commentand the devil's not in the details
    no the devil is in my hand
    it sounds to me like he says "no the devil is in my pants" that can relate a little more to me

    General CommentGreat song, and I can definitely relate. I think it's meaning isn't too difficult to figure out. When things go wrong, this guy feels at ease. For some people, like myself, being in a groove can be a scary thing. Life tends to feel stale and predictable. I'm sure many of you can understand where I'm coming from, right? When he says "Then I get to put it back together", I'm fairly certain he's being sarcastic. But despite the sarcasm putting things back together is when he really feels alive. It's the process of picking up the pieces that fulfills this guy. One could argue that he's delusional in his approach toward life, but not me. He gives it away at the end of the song with the lyric "You're gonna wake up scared. Gonna find yourself lost in hell...." He knows that the key to real happiness is keeping it simple and getting away from all the confusion. My two cents.

    General Commentlovely song that emphasizes the universal law of what goes up, would certainly go down...you can't be stuck on the safe mode all the time, expect the unexpected, not to be fatalistic, but life is, it is what it is...shit does really happen and so does great times...learn from the former, cherish the latter...

    General CommentThe lyrics are all wrong, it is definitely "The devils is in my pants" I suggest getting the lyrics for this song somewhere else.
