Song Analysis: ” Coming down” By: Five Finger Death Punch

This song has been a favorite of mine since the first time I heard it. I was mesmerized by  the pungent tone of the song but more importantly the weight of the message.It is pretty obvious by just reading the lyrics what the song is about and why it is important for people to be  aware of tragedy and truth of the matter.This song is about suicide and how we all get do so much to help those who may suffer form depression. More prominently however how each and every one of us need to realize the bitterness that out hate can cause. How sick humanity has become saying thing that make others feel like life is no longer worth it for them. Listening to this song I get a deep sadness for the way of our world. Yet the song ends perfectly reminding us that ” ONE  FRIEND CAN SAVE A LIFE!”  Then the number for the National Suicide Prevention Line is given. I advise even if you are not a rock fan or really into music at all: Listen to this song. It is a song that we all ought to listen to and truly understand the blunt truth behind it. I wanted to share the link for the YouTube music video for it as well:( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ptzzU7jFQwo).  For those of you who are like me and may not handle that type of video well, pass on the music video but still look up a lyrics video and let me know how the song affected you and your understanding of things.Below I have put the lyrics as well but instead of commenting throughout like I did last time I think I will leave my comments to up here and let the lyrics do the rest of the speaking for themselves.

” Coming down”

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 pull 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
Is there anybody out there?
Is there anyone who cares?
Is there anybody listening?
Will they hear my final prayers?

Step away from the ledge
I’m coming down

I could never be
What you want me to
You pull me under
To save yourself
(Save yourself)
You will never see
What’s inside of me
I pull you under just to save myself
(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 pull me under
To save yourself
(Save yourself)
You will never see
What’s inside of me
I pull you under just to save myself

Thank you and REMEMBER YOU CAN HELP.
-Wishing you the Brightest of day,Eva
