Assemblage 23 — Fallen Down lyrics

I've seen this face before
It somehow looks familiar
Tattered and weatherworn
A sad, pathetic creature

And once you stood so strong
Your eyes alight with promise
You vowed to carry on
A heart once beat in your chest

Cut forward to another day
Another time, another place
You're not who you used to be
And I wonder why

I knew you once
When you were young
Before you knew
What you'd become
But that was then
And this is now
You've lost your way
You've fallen down

You can't just walk away
You can't choose to ignore me
I stand in front of you
A stranger stands before me

What happened to the boy
Head filled with aspirations
His dreams within his reach
His life a celebration?

Cut forward to another day
Another time, another place
You're not who you used to be
And I wonder why

I knew you once
When you were young
Before you knew
What you'd become
But that was then
And this is now
You've lost your way
You've fallen down

And now there's nothing left
Your face a pale reflection
With only emptiness
You've lost your life's direction

What happened to the man
Who couldn't be defeated
Who always stood his ground
When lesser men retreated?

Cut forward to another day
Another time, another place
You're not who you used to be
And I wonder why

I knew you once
When you were young
Before you knew
What you'd become
But that was then
And this is now
You've lost your way
You've fallen down
