(Feat. Hayley Williams)

Come on and break down and show us who you are.
Memorable first impressions only get you far,
When you stay true, from beginning to end.
Flexing all your morals, your environment will bend back,
As you bend crooked.

Come on and break down, fake persona's from your art
I used to hang on every verse when my days would get hard,
Flash forward to present day and time,
A fraud, a hoax, a method actor reading scripted lines back,

Why'd you take that path?
There's no way back, we are the spark,
That once would ignite a pilot light, burning deep in your heart,
The start of making yourself out to be bigger than you really are.

Conscience is calling,
C-Come and shut it up.
Yeah, I know life gets rough sometimes,
Big dollars take the pressure off of hard times.
But gluttony's a sin, and hunger will not let you win,
If you don't get a grip, use some self will to control it,
Hold it, when it

[Hayley Williams:]
"Wooah wooah, guys um is it cool if I get in on this here?"

(Hell yeahhh) (Dude go for it! )

[Hayley Williams:]
Alright listen,
(Ohhhh) I see you ready, set, go,
With unqualified pride, orders of your disguise explode.
Watch us double up on those who try to intimidate unaware eyes,
Fabrications of a buster living within a lie.
If you come back you'll have to (get, get, get, get, get)
Through all of us,

We are the spark,
That once would ignite a pilot light,
Burning deep in your heart, the start.
Of making yourself out to be bigger than you really are.

You instilled, you helped to build,
A belief within me that I carry to this day.
You passed the torch, cared no more.
What a shame, who's to blame,
When the mighty fall from grace?

Go settle up, with the kids fed up,
This time we want, for you to man on up. Right, and
Account for all your crimes.
Go settle up, with the kids fed up,
This time we want, for you to man on up.

Right Now, I want you to say it,
I wanna know why you abandoned this and now hate it, just why?
But you don't know why.
Such an elusive, guileful, meaningless sham.

Come on and break down,
Come on and break down,
Come on and break down,
Come on and break down,
Come on, break down (Who, who's to blame?)
Break down, (Tell me who, who's to blame?)
Break down, (Who's to blame, take the shame)

Now when the mighty fall from grace.

    I think this song is generally about someone who seemed like a person that could be trusted, but turned around and did something out of the ordinary and betrayed another. I think "the few that remain" is supposed to represent the few honest and good people living in this world anymore.

    It's about people who hide behind labels and ego's. The people who do that, look down upon the people who stay true to themselves. They're asking the people who hide behind labels to breakdown to their true self. They make themselves sound bigger than what they really are inside.
