Lyrics

Falling
I'm falling
Falling
I'm falling

Have you ever walked through a room
But it was more like the room passed around you
Like there was a leash around your neck that pulled you through
Have you ever been at some place
Recognizing everybody's face
Until you realized that there was no one there you knew, well, I know

Some days, my soul's confined
And out of mind, sleep forever
Some days, I'm so outshined
And out of time, have you ever

Falling
I'm falling
Falling
I'm falling

Have you ever buried your face in your hands
'Cause no one around you understands
Or has the slightest idea what it is that makes you be
Have you ever felt like there was more
Like someone else was keeping score
And what could make you whole was simply out of reach, well, I know

Someday, I'll try again
And not pretend, this time forever
Someday, I'll get it straight
But not today, have you ever

Falling
I'm falling
Falling
I'm falling

Some days, my soul's confined (falling)
And out of mind, sleep forever (I'm falling)
Some days, my darkest friend (falling)
Is me again, have you ever (I'm falling)

Someday, I'll try again (falling)
And not pretend, this time forever (I'm falling)
Someday, I'll get it straight
But not today, have you ever

When the truth walks away
Everybody stays
'Cause the truth about the world
Is that crime does pay

So if you walk away
Who is gonna stay
'Cause I'd like to think the world
Is a better place

When the truth walks away
Everybody stays
'Cause the truth about the world
Is that crime does pay

So if you walk away
Who is gonna stay
'Cause I'd like to make the world
Be a better place

When the truth walks away
Everybody stays
'Cause the truth about the world
Is that crime does pay

So if you walk away
Who is gonna stay
'Cause I'd like to think the world
Is a better place

I'd like to leave the world
As a better place
I'd like to think the world...
