Breaking Benjamin – I Will Not Bow lyrics

[Intro]
Fall!

[Verse 1]
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.

[Pre-Chorus]
All is lost again, but I'm not giving in.

[Chorus]
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!

[Verse 2]
Watch the end through dying eyes,
Now the dark is taking over.
Show me where forever dies,
Take the fall and run to heaven.

[Pre-Chorus]
All is lost again, but I'm not giving in.

[Chorus]
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.

[Hook]
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!

[Bridge]
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.

[Outro]
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!

    "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.

    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.

    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.

    The picture that comes to mind is this: a darkness falling over a city, tearing it to shreds. He keeps stopping to give advice. Advice #1: save your breath, it's far from over. Advice #2: leave your lost loved ones behind, they'll want you to take cover. When all is lost, he's still not giving in; he won't break/fall/fade/bow. People watch the dark take over while they're dying, finally they fall and flee to heaven, but he's still not giving in. He will survive- though paranoid- through the darkness. But even so he is not proud. And even though he is harsh he is not cold blooded or fake. He will shut this world away. He will not give in.
