Falling Down Lyrics

I'm falling down
And fifteen thousand people scream
They were all begging for your dream
I'm falling down
Five thousand houses burning down
No one is gonna save this town

Too late
I already found what I was looking for
You know it wasn't here
No, it wasn't here

I was calling your name
But you would never hear me sing
You wouldn't let me begin
So I'm crawling away
Cos you broke my heart in two, yeah
No, I will not forget you

Too late
I already found what I was looking for
You know it wasn't you
No, it wasn't you, no

Falling away
You would never see me through
No, I could not forget you
Falling down
A thousand houses burning down, yeah
No one is gonna save this town

Too late
I already found what I was looking for
You know it wasn't you
No, it wasn't you, no

Falling down
Now the world is upside down, yeah
I'm heading straight for the clouds

Falling Down is a song from the album Showbiz, and is overall the fourth track. It was not performed live for a space of 12 years, from 2000 up until 2012, in Montpellier, France, for the 2nd Law Tour.

According to Matthew Bellamy, the song is about living in Teignmouth, which he said was a boring and lifeless town. The line 'And fifteen thousand people scream', was about how he wanted to destroy the town: Teignmouth's population is about 15'000.
