Fall away, for once I don't have to pretend
And so today, I JUST DON'T WANT THIS DAY TO END
These things that people seem so sure of
Feel empty as if hollowed out
To me it seems to take so much courage
To belive in something without a doubt
But to live and die just for yourself
Just doesn't make too much sense to me
It seems shallow and utterly worthless
But selfishness is what you preach
Like a sinking ship, you fight so intensly
For a battle that you've already lost
Weighed down by burdens so immensly
It's your life to lose, who will mourn your loss?
I PICK MY BATTLES, BUT IF I WIN
IT'S NOTHING SHORT OF EMPTY TO ME
BUT IT'S ALRIGHT, 'CAUSE IN THE END
YOUR LIFE IS MY TRUE VICTORY
And doesn't your heart beat a little faster
At the mention of eternity
And does anything else really matter
When faced with the prospect of being free?
What will be my legacy?
What will live on after I'm gone?
Will they see through to the worst in me?
Or will they know that I stood strong
REFUSE TO TAKE REPONSIBILLITY
MY SELFISHNESS IS WEARING THROUGH
AS THESE IMPERFECTIONS GROW INSIDE OF ME
THE ONE WHO FILLS MY GAPS IS YOU
Fall Away
I don't want to break your heart again
SHOULD I RE-LIVE TODAY, I'D DO IT ALL THE SAME AGAIN
Fall Away, for once I don't have to pretend
And so today, I JUST DON'T WANT THIS DAY TO END

    General CommentFall Away is about living for something greater than yourself. I wrote this one day a few summers ago after a day that was so perfect that I wanted it to last forever.

    I got down on my knees and prayed that the perfect day would never end.

    A few hours later the sun set and the day ended, but the feeling of complete peace with my life never did.

    General Commenteh...this song is alright...itd be so much better if the lyrics were:

    Let the bodies hit the floor
    Let the bodies hit the floor
    Let the bodies hit the floor
    Let the bodies hit the floor

    Beaten, why for?
    Can't take much more

    One - nothing wrong with me
    Two - nothing wrong with me
    Three - nothing wrong with me
    Four - nothing wrong with me
    One - something's got to give
    Two - something's got to give
    Three - something's got to give

    Now let the bodies hit the floor

    Push me again
    This is the end

    One - nothing wrong with me
    Two - nothing wrong with me
    Three - nothing wrong with me
    Four - nothing wrong with me
    One - something's got to give
    Two - something's got to give
    Three - something's got to give

    Now let the bodies hit the floor

    Skin against skin
    Blood and bone
    You're all by yourself but
    You're not alone
    You wanted in
    and now youre here
    Driven by hate
    Consumed by fear

    Let the bodies hit the floor

    One - nothing wrong with me
    Two - nothing wrong with me
    Three - nothing wrong with me
    Four - nothing wrong with me
    One - something's got to give
    Two - something's got to give
    Three - something's got to give

    Let the bodies hit the floor
