Skillet – Falling Inside The Black lyrics

Tonight I'm so alone
This sorrow takes a hold
Don't leave me here so cold
(Never want to be so cold)

Your touch used to be so kind
Your touch used to give me life
I've waited all this time
I've wasted so much time

Don't leave me alone
'Cause I barely see at all
Don't leave me alone

[Chorus:]
I'm falling in the black
Slipping through the cracks
Falling to the depths
Can I ever go back?
Dreaming of the way it used to be
Can you hear me?
Falling in the black
Slipping through the cracks
Falling to the depths
Can I ever go back?
Falling inside the black
Falling inside
Falling inside
The black

You were my source of strength
I've traded everything
That I love for this one thing
(Stranded in the offering)

Don't leave me here like this
Can't hear me scream from the abyss
And now I wish for you, my desire

Don't leave me alone
'Cause I barely see at all
Don't leave me alone

I'm falling in the black
Slipping through the cracks
Falling to the depths
Can I ever go back?
Dreaming of the way it used to be
Can you hear me?
Falling in the black
Slipping through the cracks
Falling to the depths
Can I ever go back?
Falling inside the black
Falling inside
Falling inside
The black
Black
Black
Black

Falling in the black (Black, black, black...)
Slipping through the cracks (Cracks, cracks...)

Falling in the black
Slipping through the cracks
Falling to the depths
Can I ever go back?
Dreaming of the way it used to be
Can you hear me?
Falling in the black
Slipping through the cracks
Falling to the depths
Can I ever go back?

Falling inside the black
(Can you hear me?)
(X3)

Falling inside the black
Falling inside
Falling inside
The black

    I agree that this song is about depression. I thought that the first time I heard it, before I knew Skillet are a Christian band. And now I do know it, I still wouldn't give it a Christian reading because I don't think it has one. I can see why other people think it does, I just disagree.
    It's such an emotive and powerful song, however you read it. A friend of mine and I were discussing this song the other day and how we think it's like he's screaming silently. Like when you reach the level of darkness and desperation that you can't actually ask for help or for someoen to listen to you but in your head you're still screaming for those things.

    The meaning of this song is very simple and it is that he is going through a hard time and misses the way it was before and actually it is a Christian meaning and in the end he turns back to the lord and starts his journey back to his arms but hey watever it means to you then take it that way and I hope it touches your life!
