"Body Breakdown" as written by and Herman/theart Li....
Silent screams and shattered dreams awash with this insanity
Still lost within the misery and pain that lies inside
Here alone the fight to breathe still searching for the truth to be
Blackened by the burning fire held deep inside my mind!

Far beyond the lost horizon standing on the shore
Across the seas their hearts will bleed
There's laughter waiting for?

Taste the steel in pain we live
For glory we defend
Their fallen souls will rise to fight again!

Stand here with me, this night we'll be together
Future in our hands we'll fight with freedom glowing here
Stand here with me for we will live forever
Tonight we'll stand and face it all

Falling rain will hide the pain that lies beneath the burning flames
All hope is gone so carry on before the world will fall
Rise again to die in vain now life can never be the same
Our own salvation drawing near, I hear the darkness call

Skies are falling, thunderstorm and stand before the world
We're banished now to barren wastelands, fight the demon, oh
Riding on through black and darkness, cross the endless sands
We sail away, our victory at hand!

Stand here with me
Together we'll be stronger
Side by side we conquer lands
And storm across the seas

Die here with me
We feel this pain no longer
For now and never we will live

[Chorus]
In my heart, in my soul, I am out of control
Fly across the mountains and towards the distant sun
Tears evermore we cry like before
Feel the breakdown of my body ? just set me free

[Chorus: Repeat 2X]

Feel the breakdown of my body
Just come and set me free

    General Commentmaybe i'm wrong, but i always thought this song was about a couple. like they were all inlove when they were young, then some situation forced them apart until they found each other again years later. corny lol but it would be sweet

    My OpinionI suppose it could be about sex lol but i think it is about eternal love. And I'm not sure why but if its telling a story of a couple, of an eternal love then I have to go with Romeo and Juliet. Ofcourse that's just my humnle opinion.

    Song MeaningWho the heck wrote the lyrics on this site?! It’s nothing like “Awash” and “Insanity”! Let me write the corrected lyrics from the CD (Album) and then I’ll give the meaning. You must take note that this song is the prologue to ‘Trail of Broken Hearts’.

    Lyrics:

    Silent screams and shattered dreams
    Of what we left at Seventeen
    Still lost within the misery
    And pain that lies inside
    Here alone the fight to breathe
    Still searching for the truth to be
    Blackened by the burning fire
    Held deep inside my mind

    Far beyond the lost Horizon
    Standing on the shore
    Across the seas their hearts will bleed
    This life we’re waiting for
    Taste the steel in pain
    You kneel for glory we defend
    Our fallen souls will rise to fight again

    Stay here with me
    This night we’ll be together
    Future in our hands
    We’ll fight with freedom drawing near
    Stand here with me
    For we will live forever
    Tonight we stand and face it all

    (Chorus)

    Falling rain will hide the pain
    That lies beneath the burning flames
    All hope is gone
    So carry on before the world will fall
    Rise again to die in vain
    Now life can never be the same
    Our own salvation drawing nearer
    Hear the darkness call

    (Verse)

    (Chorus)

    Now the meaning...

    First and foremost, this is the sister song (prologue song) to ‘Trail of Broken Hearts’.
    It’s a song about remembering and contemplating the resume of a previous relationship. In this case, one in which the protagonist had at Seventeen years of age. (That’s why I corrected the lyrics, because that age is a fundamental part of the song and its meaning.)

    Eventually, the significant other feels the same way and addresses this to the protagonist. He/she then goes on to explain how they have felt about him/her up until that point. The protagonist is breaking down (physically and mentally) with the heartbreak of being alone and living with the stress of others.

    Finally, the protagonist explains how they will work together to fight for what they want in life; and stop at nothing in the process! These prominent lyrics are backed up in the epilogue song ‘Trail of Broken Hearts’ because in that song, it becomes more of a ‘we’ song. Meaning that they have fought their way through things together (good and bad) and they can finally let the ‘broken’ past fade away as a distant memory!

    Note: this is not a song entirely about sex. It may have references that COULD be appertained to sex, but nothing more.

    General Commentawesome song!! I just discovered dragonforce; this is like the third song I've heard, but I can't believe how masterful they are at guitar and vocals. It sounds like this "battle" is a symbolic one within onesself...

    General CommentIt sounds like a story fitting in to the rest of the story album. More specifically a single soldier fighting with his comrades over the course of years or whatever, and he's hitting a breaking point, all the fighting and death gets to him and he feels "the breakdown of my body".
