"Fall Of Man" as written by and Matthew/genn Good....
You pray for the sheep
I get closer to hell
I stand on the hill
And then I run down
I look in your eyes
You look for your price
You beg me to stop
But I was never that nice
Never did mind about the little things
Never did mind about the little things
Never did mind
We'll stick to the plan
The fall of man

You pray for the sheep
Look forward to hell
Go live on the hill
No one comes down
I look in your eyes
You look for some teeth
Like nickels at night
Left under the sheets
Never did mind about the little things
Never did mind about the little things
Never did mind
We'll stick to the plan
The fall of man

What you don't know won't kill you
What you don't know won't kill you
What you don't know won't kill you
What you don't know
What you don't know won't kill you

    General CommentThis song is just basically about the deterioration of mankind. "You beg me to stop, but I was never that nice" - We inflict pain on everyone. "What you don't know won't kill you" - This is what we are told by society and the media. Problems are kept hush-hush that seemingly don't affect us, but we are all human and need to help each other out. There are many forgotten wars out there that aren't even talked about, and that is just wone example of something not hurting us if we don't know. It is hurting us, because it hurts mankind as a whole.

    General CommentI always thought "we'll stick to the plan" was "we're sticks in the plan." I kinda like it better, kind of goes along with another Matt Good lyric "You are still here and so made to figure you are an important part of the computer."
    But now that I read that I can hear that it uses stick as a verb.

    General Commenti always was a little scared of this song. the whole thing at the end where he says 'what you don't know wont kill you' i thought he was saying 'want to kill you' so i was a little freaked out. and yeah, i think this song is supposed to be a little scary and terrifying, it's refletcing how everything's falling apart and that we should be scared.
    and, like in 'buffalo seven', i think he's talking about the citizens when he says lambs and sheep and stuff.
