Falling Down

Precious gifts to careless hands
In graceless hope they’ll understand
While way down south in Shantytown
Comes a midnight breeze, brings a stirring sound

I’m falling down, help me baby
I’m falling down, through failing hands
I’m falling down into the great indifference
Where no one hears you scream or knows your name
When you’re falling down

Late at night when the demons come
Can’t catch your breath, too weak to run
They dance across your tired eyes
Those shattered hopes and dreams, torn, tattered lives

I’m falling down, help me baby
I’m falling down, through failing hands
I’m falling down into the great indifference
Where no one hears you scream or knows your name
When you’re falling down

Take me down the boardwalk
Hold me close, now don’t talk
Try to remember what we used to be
We were true believers, we didn’t know what fear was
But now I know it lives inside of me

I’m falling down, help me baby
I’m falling down, through failing hands
I’m falling down into the great indifference
Where no one hears you scream or knows your name
When you’re falling down
