Take the light and darken everything around me
Call the clouds and listen closely I'm lost without you
Call your name every day when I feel so helpless
I'm fallen down but I'll rise above this, rise above this

Hate the mind, regrets are better left unspoken
For all we know, this void will grow
And everything's in vain, distressing you though it leaves me open
Feels so right, but I'll end this all before it gets me

Call your name every day when I feel so helpless
I'm fallen down but I'll rise above this, rise above this
Call your name every day when I seem so helpless
I'm fallen down, but I'll rise above this, rise above this doubt

I'll mend myself before it gets me
(I'll mend myself before it gets me)
I'll mend myself before it gets me
(I'll mend myself before it gets me)

Call your name every day when I feel so helpless
I'm fallen down but I'll rise above this, rise above this
Forty eight ways to say that I'm feelin' helpless
I'm Falling down, falling down, but I'll rise above this, rise above this,
Rise above this, rise above this doubt

    This song/video gets to me so bad. I lost my uncle through suicide last April and it has been a whirlwind of anger, sadness, bitterness, love, hate, and everything else mixed in together. Anyone who has lived through the same, my heart goes out to you. It is indeed a selfish act, but you learn to move on, and somehow find a way to love that person though it's the hardest thing sometimes. RIP Eugine, all my love and sympathy to Shaun's family.

    The best part about music is it can be interpretted in so many ways and none of them are wrong. If a song speaks to you and you can relate that to something in your life what difference does it make about the real meaning behind it?

    I think he is speaking directly to his brother. He must have felt his brother took the light out of life when he died and he wants to tell him some things that he didn't get to. I think he wants him to know that he wont do the same thing.
    This song shows the most important thing about music and that is getting your feelings out and sharing them with others.
    Seether has a lot of rockin songs that are also very good for your self esteem, such as Fuck It and Fake It, I recommend them to anyone.

    its about love, loving that special person whom you cant have. about the fantastic feeling of being around that person but dealing with the fact that you cant have them.

    I love this song because it speaks of a truth that people, should want to live no matter what, and not jump and think bout who they will leave behind if they jump, and its also a rememberance to his brother.
