Fall Away Lyrics

You swear you recall nothing at all

That could make you come back down

You made up your mind to leave it all behind

Now you're forced to fight it out

You fall away from your past

But it's following you

you fall away from...

    I think this song is about running away from your life problems and your past. Running away from a bad memory which the memory is definitely like hurting someone mentally I’m not so sure physically. And so this person is running away from their past and trying to forget everything and start over which truly isn’t possible because your past makes up who you are it allows you to grow and understand yourself. “ you left something undone , it’s now your rerun”. You did this thing in the past and now you have to relive it , you can’t keep running away from all your problems because your past stays with you forever

    Yeah,I can relate to it a lot. It's about leaving the past behind, living in the now,and being happy to forget and let go

    It's about being ashamed of your past, if anyone asks about it you simply lie. You do everything you can to avoid speaking of it. You think if you bring it up it can suck you back into that state of mind you were trying to avoid because what you went through is unbearable. But time after time there are things everywhere that remind you of what has happend. Things that won't go away, a permanent reminder of your past and you can escape from it. You have to face your past and fight your demon. The things you have done cannot be changed, you can't just run away from your past because it is a part of you something bind to you and makes you who you are today. It will forever follow you.

    Man this song stalks me O.O I interpret it as you're just starting to forget about bad things that happened to you and mistakes you made but you keep coming back to it.
