"Crashing Around You" as written by Robert Conrad Flynn, Ahrue Luster, Adam Duce and Dave Mcclain....
I am your nightmares, true scares
That dream when you can't stop from falling
Can't fight, can't run
Can't stop the person you've become

I am your heartbreaks, mistakes
That place inside your hate
I am that shadow following every move, reminding you
That it's never good enough, never good enough
Even though you'll try and try
I'm gonna call your bluff
Because I am the thing bringing the feelings when

Your world comes crashing around you
Smashes down around you
When will you see that you cannot hide from me?

When you feel darkness, hopeless
Can't cope with all the stress
I'll make you hate life bring strife
Remember failures hardened stare
And it's never gonna change, never gonna change
Always they'll be judging you
Compared to who and who
You trust in me but I only live to see

Your world come crashing around you
Smash down around you
When will you see that you cannot hide from me?

When I come for you
When I see through you
When I eat through you
When I destroy you

You'll think you're betrayed, astray
I'll leave you ripped and torn so bad you
Can't trust, can't love
Can't understand why life's so fucked
I'm deep inside your mind
In constant remind
If you leave your thoughts to me, believe
I'll make sure that I see

Your world come crashing around you
Smash down around you
When will you see that you cannot hide from me?

I'll make your world come crashing around you
Smash down around you
I'll let you see why cannot hide from me
Because I am you

    General CommentToo bad the music video was never played because of Sep. 11. The video showed them playing on a burning skyscraper, plus the title "Crashing around you"... just really bad timing (it came out before the attacks though).

    General CommentMachine Head is so f*cking tight. Great band that doesn't get enough recognition. Amazing song, about someone that runs everything i their life. Probably trying not to let people get too close. Just my opinion. Right on!!!

    General Commentthis song is about the voices that talk crap about you inside your head. When ever your really frustrated and can't control your anger this is what happens to you

    General CommentI could be wrong, but the fact that Rob Flynn has admitted that Metallica were a huge influence to him, makes me think that this song is (at least in part) his way of 'tipping his hat' to Metallica's "Sad but true", being that both are about the negative side of the human psyche.

    General CommentOn the live version of this song, Rob starts off talking about the song. He is saying about how he wrote the song when he was \"so pissed off at the world that day\". He talks about a voice in his head saying how it was \"making me want to be mad, fuck up and self-destruct\" and he was the only one who thought these thoughts and alone in the world, but he knows his fans are with him

    General Commentyeah,it's great...and it's realy common with "sad but true"...however the song (in my opinion) is how man posses self-destructive nature but still can't realize it, can't even live with himself. The song "All in your head" has also this kind of meaning.

    General Commentthe song is about feelings depressed, your mind says you are unhappy and if you don't let the crap get you down then you are happier, but it is really hard..
