Where is the inception of digression in a human life?
When is the answer just a bright light?
Who am I in shamelessly defining all the wrong and right?
What is the difference if we all die?
I am not the first, the last, the absolute
You will find no clarity in me
I am the deceased, the least, the solitude
Failing every face I try to be.

I'm not your progress, the pay of your pains
I'm stabbing the questions for answers I can't face
I'm losing the battle and finding no life to retrace.

I built this anguish with my own hands
I felt the burn inside with my heart.
I built this anguish with my own hands
I watched our faces fall apart.

I felt the tears of all your angels, so cold.
I saw the fall of all your children, I'm so cold.

We are just a fraction of the poison living in this place
How can we answer with a straight face?
Who are you in gauging every standard you
Would have us chase?
Are we alone to run the last race?
We are all the weak, the meek, the innocent
Kissing every fault that we disgrace
We are of the worst, the cursed, the desolate
Leaving every hope that we embrace.


You turn your eyes to me in hope of my decline
Pointing your blame as I faltered on that line
We saw your slander when you pulled it off the shelf
If you want justice you'll point it at yourself
Face your fears. Trace your tears.
Kill the blind assumption that you know how I react inside
I am not so hollow, you can't see what grows inside my mind
Straight-faced, straight-faced.

    General CommentI cannot really tell what this song is about, but it seems to be a slower / sadder song. It's still a great song though...

    General Commenti think that it is about how Demon Hunter was ridiculed in the christian circles after their first album. and how hipocritical some christians can be

    General CommentDemon Hunter says:
    Our Faces Fall Apart is about Christians being held to an unattainable standard. I believe that, as a man of God, it is my duty to be a light to the people around me. And though I feel that is an important part of my walk with Christ, I, like most of us, often fall short of this duty.

    The point I try to make in this song is not to put people on a pedestal. Humans, by nature are failures and people tend to forget that. It’s not my intention to fail as a witness to Christ, but I do. Fortunately for all of us who fall short, the grace and mercy of God wash us clean as if we were flawless in his sight.

    For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.
    -Romans 3:23-24

    General CommentTo me, this how athiests and non-believers look at Christians, and the lyrics are kind of a mockery of them. The athiests in this song, are pointing fun at Christians because they say they will never be pure and should just give up God. However, the Christians know that the walk with Jesus is neither a hard or easy one, but is one with many good times.

    It is also faintly describing the devil:
    I am not the first, the last, the absolute
    You will find no clarity in me
    I am the deceased, the least, the solitude
    Failing every face I try to be.

    We all fall from grace, so I doubt this song would write about something so common in Christianity.

    General CommentNo this what ryan said the meaning of the song is about

    . Our Faces Fall Apart is about how I, despite being the mouthpiece of the band, and am doing my best to spread a message of hope, am flawed. Its an attempt to take peoples eyes off of me for moral purity and onto Christ. No human should be put on a pedestal. It only will only set you up for disappointment to realize that person has problems and issues of their own.

    General Commentthis song is about the lost. Just read the chorus:

    I felt the tears of all your angles, so cold
    I saw fall of all your children, I'm so cold.

    The angles cry when people fall from grace, and it's so sad when people fall from grace.
