It's caving in around me, what I thought was solid ground
I tried to look the other way, but I couldn't turn around
It's ok for you to hate me, for all the things I've done
I've made a few mistakes, but I'm not the only one

Step away from the ledge, I'm coming down
I could never be, what you want me to
You pulled me under, to save yourself (save yourself)
You will never see, what's inside of me
I pull you under, just to save myself

Was there ever any question, on how much I could take
You kept feeding me your bullshit, hoping I would break
It there anybody out there, is there anyone who cares
Is there anybody listening, who will hear my final prayers

Step away from the ledge, I'm coming down
I could never be, what you want me to
You pulled me under, to save yourself (save yourself)
You will never see, what's inside of me
I pull you under, just to save myself

It's caving in around me (caving in, ) it's tearing me apart (tearing me, )
It's all coming down around me (coming down, ) Does anyone anyone care at all
I will never be, what you want me to
You pull me under, I pull you under

I could never be, what you want me to
You pulled me under, to save yourself (save yourself)
You will never see, what's inside of me
I pull you under, just to save myself

    I have never added up to be anything any one wanted me to be, I used to hate scream fight lie cheat. I was picked on through out my life. But finally I found ffdp and they gave me releif I didn't have to think of anything other then the words coming out. I love them they have saved me. Hearing and watching this music video I have never cried harder in my life :( they are beautiful with everything they come up with!

    Coming down to me shows how you never know how people feel, what they go through, and how hard it is to live up to peoples expectations. This constant turmoil and nobody to turn can lead a person to wanting to hurt themselves and sometimes even death to get away from a life of misery, but all that can be changed by having someone you can trust and that will be there to help you through it all.

    From the music video and the lyrics, it is pretty clear the video is about how the external world can push an individual to consider himself/herself not fit to live. The constant battles that few victimized souls have to face day and again. The reason may be a an unfortunate failure, bullying, whatever. The song portrays despair, anguish, self loathing and still a sense of 'self' as a unique struggling individual. As reflected in the lines; "you will never see what's inside of me"
    if it were not for the hopeful, positive ending in the video, it wud have been a very sad song.

    This song reflects how most teenagers are battling suicide and feel so alone in this world. I cry every single time I sing it, I used to be there. That pain in their eyes makes my heart ache for them, I guess, it means to me that you should be there for the ones you love and care for. You never know what goes on behind closed doors and you never know whos closest to the edge.

    This song to me thinks of my past when I never fit in anywheres, everyone hated me and I didn't know hwat to do, this song speaks out for all the people who don't want help in there life. But trust me you need that help to maje it through it. I did now I'm better and back on my feet again and I'm happy with it. Yall should do the same if you have issues with this kinda stuff, its not the best way to live your life.
