No warning sign, No Alibi
Were fading faster than the speed of light.
Took our chance, crashed and burned.
No, we'll never ever learn.

I fell apart, but I got back up again,
And then I fell apart, but got back up again,
Yeah.

We both could see crystal clear,
That the inevitable end was near.
Made our choice, trial by fire,
To battle is the only way we feel alive.

I fell apart, but got back up again,
And then I fell apart, but got back up again,
And then I fell apart, but got back up again.
Way-o (x6)

So here we are, witching hour,
The quickest turn to divide and devour.
Divide and devour.
If I could end the quest for fire,
For truth, for love, for my desire.

And I fell apart, but got back up again.
Way-o (x9)

I fell apart, I fell apart, I fell apart,
I fell apart. I fell apart,
But got back up again.

    To me this song is inspiring. To me, its about a boy who is molested. But he refuses to let that stop him from living. It messed him up. Made him think love wasn't there for him. But he keeps trying. He keeps living. He doesn't give up. He continues to try to find a love that fits him. Finally, he finds the one. The one person who is caring and understanding. He's not perfect. He's scared of things. Together they will get through it. He will never let the person who molested him win. He'll try to love and allow himself to be love. To not be defeated. More determined than ever to make it work now that he has found love. Yet, knowing there is a part of him that died when he was molested. Knowing he'll never get back that lost innocence.

    To me is about a relationship that doesnt work anymore, the pasion has run out and they must part ways even though it's difficult for both of them. I base this on the second verse of the song. The breakup is difficult for the poetic voice but he must continue his journey.

    To me this means, two people from different world's had come together in lust, though it would never work between them, try they must. Thay took a chance to explore their desires, but inevitabley had to return, to each, their own way of life.
