Breaking Benjamin – I Will Not Bow lyrics

Fall!

Now the dark begins to rise
Save your breath it's far from over
Leave the lost and dead behind
Now's your chance to run for cover
I don't want to change the world
I just want to leave it colder

Light the fuse and burn it up
Take the path that leads to nowhere
All is lost again, but I'm not giving in

I will not bow, I will not break
I will shut the world away
I will not fall, I will not fade
I will take your breath away

Fall!

Watch the end through dying eyes
Now the dark is taking over
Show me where forever dies
Take the fall and run to heaven
All is lost again, but I'm not giving in

I will not bow, I will not break
I will shut the world away
I will not fall, I will not fade
I will take your breath away

And I'll survive, paranoid
I have lost the will to change
And I am not proud, cold blooded, fake
I will shut the world away

I will not!

I will not bow, I will not break
I will shut the world away
I will not fall, I will not fade
I will take your breath away

And I'll survive, paranoid
I have lost the will to change
And I am not proud, cold blooded, fake
I will shut the world away

Fall!

    It's someone saying they have been pushed around and brushed off, now they will leave their mark on the world. They will not stop until they get what they deserve even if you have to kill and die. They will not bow to someone, they will not break, they will shut out everyone and thing, they will not fall or fade, and the will take what they want by taking everyone's last breath.

    Its an addiction, telling the soul that its haning on to, that it will not back down to destorying everything you once were. I am an addict in recovery, and this is what this song means to me. The addiction will always be inside of me, reaching to come to the surface, to once again destroy everything that I am. I will rise above, I will come out on top, but always in my mind, my addiction will be lurking.

    "the darkness that surrounds us cannot hurt us. It is the darkness in our own hearts we should fear. " the meaning of this song goes deeper than just a sole persons troubles. It speaks of angels and demons in that the darkness poured upon us by society and by those around us isn't something we should fight against, but rather embrace. It speaks of inner knowing, rather than fear. Just because ones given path is not one that another would choose to tke does not mean their not human. The message is simple: no matter how many times you fall, or take the wrong path, and regardless of your own paranoia, pain, and suffering, do not change for the benefit of others. Stand strong and be who you are. That's what truly takes others breath away.

    The devil is soon coming to rise again. He is warning us. Watch the end through dying eyes now the dark is taking over show me where forever dies take the fall and run to heaven all is lost again but I'm not giving in. Watch the end through dying eyes. New world order is our end of freedom and we will watch it happen because most of us are too scared to fight. Now the dark is taking over show me where forever dies. Dark meaning the dark lord and its followers and show me where forever dies is agreeing to be initiates where they promise you immortality yet lie. He says take the fall and run to heaven. So do so.

    This is a song about a man who sees all the world around him falling and fading into oblivion, while watching those around him fleeing from the end. Yet this lone man stands defiantly as the darkness comes and watches as heaven and earth and life and death and love and hate and reality all fade into nothingness, yet he will stand to fight against it and refuses to pass away.
