Beating the fall
I can't help but desire of falling down this time
Deep in this hole of my making
I can't escape
Falling all this time

We come to this place
Falling through time
Living a hollow life
Always we're taking
Waiting for signs
Hollow life

Life x8

Fearing to fall
And still the ground below me calls
Falling down this time
Ripping apart all these things I have tried to stop
Falling all this time

We come to this place
Falling through time
Living a hollow life
Always we're taking
Waiting for signs
Hollow life

Is there ever any wonder
Why we look to the sky
Search in vain
Asking why?
All alone
Where is God?
Looking down
We don't know

We fall in space
We can't look down
Death may come
Peace I have found
What to say
Am I alive?
Am I asleep?
Or have I died?

(Haunting me)

We fall in space
We can't look down
Death may come
Peace I have found
What to say
Am I alive?
Am I asleep?
We fall down

(Something takes a part of me)

We come to this place
Falling through time
Living a hollow life
Always we're taking
Waiting for signs
Hollow life

Is there ever any wonder
Why we look to the sky
Search in vain
Asking why?
All alone
Where is God?
Looking down
We don't know
x2

We fall in space
We can't look down
Death may come
Peace I have found

    My InterpretationI first loved this song just for its sound--an interesting balance of hard and soft. But I loved it again for its lyrics. I think this song is about those who search for meaning in their lives and cannot find it, thus their lives are "hollow". It gets easy to give up, as the speaker seems to feel at the beginning. It's no wonder then, as the lyrics state, why people turn to religion to create meaning for themselves ("Is there ever any wonder why we look to the sky? Search in vain, asking 'why?' All alone, where is God? Looking down... We don’t know"). It may even be in the point of view of someone suicidal. It can be difficult to stay positive when the world is so greedy ("Always we're taking...") and life is so fragile and temporary ("Ripping apart all these things that I've tried to stop falling all this time"), that it may be better to just give up ("Death may come, peace I have found").
