Alone in a room I've been in once before
Shapes in the hall I'm running for the door
I'm out on the edge but I'm not defeated yet
I hear my name above everything else
Mark! Mark! Above everything else
Don't fall.
To this freak out
Nothing's familiar
And nothing seems to fit into the scheme of things
Seeing faces where there shouldn't be faces
No-one's really certain what tomorrow brings
Don't fall my friend
This nightmare never ends.
Hiding inside a room that's running red
The place to be exists only in your head
And the focus of fear in the creases of a dress
A female dress
How did I come to be drowning in this mess
Ahh! Fuckin' mess
Don't fall.
To this freak out
Nothing's familiar
(Rest of chorus)
Don't fall
I know your back's against the wall
But this roaring silence won't devour us all.
Freak out nothing's familiar
Something's rearranged the scheme of things
Mistakes don't matter.

    General CommentMark's note from the official site:

    "The Words to 'Don't Fall' were written about an hour before our first 'show-case' in London. A 'show-case' was a gig hastily promoted in order to get as many industry people there as possible to see the band. We'd be so eager to play new songs that I would often end up singing what came to be called 'yogurt' in the early stages, i.e., singing whatever felt good whether it made any sense or not. But I wasn't eager to do that on this occasion and typical me, I left it to the last minute to finish the words. They came from an experience I'd had a couple of weeks before when, due to a combination of my own stupidity and lateness I'd found myself alone at night, wandering the streets tripping on magic mushrooms. It was a long night, the details of which I won't bore you with but the result was 'Don't Fall'."

    General Comment"In his Autumn before the Winter comes man's last mad surge of youth". When they were recording songs for thier first album, the group set a mike in front of a TV set, in the next room, in order to record random samples for further use in their songs. This one was never documented, but it's suggested that it comes from a movie named "A town called Alice" or "Two Sisters from Boston"... in case you were wondering.

    General CommentI think it's about not giving in to the pressures of the world, not suffocating under it all. I think some of it has to do with the influence of mushrooms too, probably a bad trip. "It's a freak out Nothing's familiar"

    General CommentBrilliant song, its about not giving up in the hardest times in life. He's talking about a dark time in life, and things not going right, but hes saying not to fall because things will get better. to stay up.
    "all nightmares have an end" isnt it true :D
