Celldweller - Down To Earth Lyrics




It seems like right from the moment of your birth
Someones been needing to bring you down to earth
Lost up in your atmosphere of self entitlement
That broken halo on your head is hardly heaven sent

Its time for someone to bring you down to earth

You go on pretending that you own the universe
And we’ll all be here watching as you're falling down to earth

Won't matter how high you climb
When rules of gravity apply
Won't matter how hard you've tried
When your ego and earth collide

You're falling
Down to earth
Down to earth

Down to earth

Look down on those with their fingers in the dirt
We look up and see that your own life is inert
Sidetracked by your self-important Babel-building schemes
But broken wings won’t let you fly above all your broken dreams

Its time for someone to bring you down to earth

You go on pretending that you own the universe
And we’ll all be here watching as you're falling down to earth

Won't matter how high you climb
When rules of gravity apply
Won't matter how hard you've tried
When your ego and earth collide

You're falling
Down to earth
Down to earth

Down to
Down to

You're falling
Down to earth

Deactivating
Accelerating
Disintegrating
Detonating

Won't matter how high you climb
When rules of gravity apply (you're falling)
Won't matter how hard you've tried
When your ego and earth collide

Won't matter how high you climb
When rules of gravity apply
Won't matter how hard you've tried
When your ego and earth collide

Won't matter how high you climb
Won't matter how hard you've tried
Won't matter how high you climb

Down to earth

Its time for someone to bring you down to earth

Its time for someone to bring you down to earth

Down to earth

  1. Iron Ballz

    Remember, you don’t actually have any real power nor real money nor can you get the gold in your life to be useful at all to me and my god damn brilliant and successful and prosperous FUTURE CAREER and company. You NEVER HAD ONE SINGLE OUNCE OF REAL HARD POWER AND RESOURCES FROM DAY ONE - other than all of your BULLSHIT LIES AND IMPULSIVE BEHAVIORS AND TRUE STUPIDITY AND NAIVETY AND UNDISCIPLINED and untrained promiscuous FAT BRAIN AND OBESE BODY... we can all tell by how you look everywhere as A FAT horny porny WHORE CRAVING FOR NARCISSISTIC SUPPLIES...

  11. Daniela Pacella

  12. Yul Strokheet Al-Wauch

    Love it when Klayton sings.

  13. Dwayne Olds

    I freakin love you guys so much🌐---- 🌏------😁

  14. Charus Channeling

    This is my favorite album, It seems to be so fleshed out.

  15. Vojislav Relic

    4:13 best part in the entire song.

    Harry Adair

    Once Klayton produced that guitar riff and synth chord progression he could easily have used it for another full song or album filler as it has a really strong melody and there's something emotive about the sound of the guitar. I love how instead he decided to use it in the same song as a way to switch up the last chorus which actually adds to the drama of this person's ego "falling to earth" and manages to cast a new light on his songwriting.
    Then he switches it up again with the perfect blend of metal/techno instruments in the outro, and some truly amazing drumming and time signature changes as well.
    Klayton is in that genius category for me along with my favourite artists; MJK, AJ, JC and DC of Tool, Trent Reznor (and Atticus Ross) of NIN, Stephen Wilson of Porcupine tree and Blue Stahli of course. The whole song is pretty good but the last 2 minutes of it are a completely different level.

  16. ZOOT CHANNEL

    JESUS .................. LOVED IT TOO !

  17. Darksider

    5:35 просто кайф

  18. ZiNG

    This is music with 7 million moving parts in it. This is genius. This is quality. Too bad the Earth's population is anaware.

  19. CBR FOXX Shiftpaw

    This song always manages to bring out the right feels and strangly brings me hope outta life

    This part has nice feeling

  22. CardinalS!n

    "Klayton is Celldweller"

  23. L0gical ATHEIST

    Won't matter how high you climb when rules of gravity apply..... um

    Gravity follows the inverse square law .... so if I climbed high enough gravity would be so weak it would basically be negligible

    How DARE YOU SIR?!?!?

  24. Segin

    Such an amazing song. Well done Klay!

  25. Prillexprex

    its got that Nine Inch Nails feel

  26. JannetFenix

    It starts as song that's catchy, unveils into something really DAMN GOOD, and after 5:00 just makes you drop everything you have in your hands to appreciate how godly it is.
    Every single fcking time I listen to your songs I enter a new world. And this one dimension here sucks, because there's not enough people appreciating it.

  27. Undarial

    Reminds of the NiN's Year Zero in some ways. Enjoyed this a lot frankly.

  28. HappyFaceSticker

    This song is so my beat! Well... half of it. I really like the first half because it reminds me of NIN (that 90's grunge crossed with funk). I feel the chorus is an intrusion on my little funky bubble though, so that, and the whole second half of the song I dislike. To me, it feels like CD's foot-in-the-door to another genre, but at the end he backpedals.

  29. EariosRandomness

    Reminds me of Freeza for some reason.

  30. gandharzero

    27 weak probes burnt in earth's atmosphere. Good music like always.

  31. Kodiak

    I have to say that this song makes me think about the negative qualities of the hypothetical subject of this song which I exhibit and far too often ignore. Sometimes it takes work to avoid being an asshole

  51. ermac81

    Sounds like a Scandroid song.

    and yes, I know Klayton is in Scandroid.

    realscapegoat

    Klayton IS scandroid

    [ Morioh ambulance ]

    klayton is celldweller, scandroid and circle of dust

    I would die.

    Natalie Gutsmiedl

    Omg yes

    ๖ۣۜͦζۣ͜͡ Marta liden๖ۣۜͦζ͜͡๖

    Me too :(

  54. PerfektFlawz

    I find it crazy that Klayton isn't a fan of his own vocals. They're very unique, and one of the many reasons his music is so unique. That and the fact that he's a freaking one man band basically. 

    Emofreezer

    Because he plays a computer, drums, three different kinds of guitar, and then does his own vocals, that's how he one man band's a computer

    Lusus Naturae

    Smart man.. His vocals and lyrics can be abrasive towards people... He's probably dissatisfied with phrasing.

    HeavyLoad83

    I agree.

    Versus Music

    As a person way less talented than Klayton but trying my hand at this, I think it's hard for anybody to produce and mix their own vocals without a sincere level of self doubt and shit.
    But when you are pushing the literal limits of sound production like he is, any vocal he records won't sound good enough.
    That doesn't mean he isn't a great vocalist because he sure as fuck is.
    Just means he is aware of the high level of production he is capable of and fears his vocals won't stand by it.
    Which would be a genuine concern if you weren't LITERALLY FUCKING Klayton lol

    TheNew Brazy999

    @Axys 0 Rex there are some songs that he goes much further into the meaning of the lyrics though :o . This song is pretty basic in terms of lyrics

  55. CYNID

    5:35 that drop and last minute and 20 of the song >///u///< IT'S AWESOME!

  56. Qwertyness

    he just needs to work a little more on the words

  57. Peace Keeper

    PURE EPICNESS! I can see this being part of a film/hard core scene

  58. Ádrian Sánchez

    He's just amazing!!!! Honestly, when i'm sad, I always hear his music, takes me to other world!! And sometimes makes me cry of happiness😭

  59. Tuke Lee

    love it how every single one of Klay's songs are unique. i once played his first album in the car with a friend and he said 'sounds like every song is from a different band' ha

  60. Jester.

    THIS SONG EXPLAINS EGO IN A NUTSHELL

    Samuraislash600

    Jester. Sounds like the fall of Satan.

    Mandi Goolsby

    What I love, is that all of his songs have a plethora of perspectives. It could mean your own ego, religious egos, or other peoples. Just a thought.

  61. Madame Mayhem

    Also, one person was drunk and hit the wrong button.

  65. DatVocals!

    i love this song. have written down and synched the lyrics in musiXmatch on spotify (because nobody had the patience obviously :PP)

  66. Banner Man

    you need to make this at a faster speed 

  67. AXEL KI

    Hmmm. I'm sensing a dash of NIN here. I fell out of love with NIN from The Downward Spiral, and never recovered ( I just thought it was a bloody racket ). However, this reminds me of the NIN era that I loved. Superb...consistently great. I just wish they'd start releasing hard copy CDs of all the latest FIXT stuff. I'm a collector of the 'objects' as well as the music!!

  70. Tristan Chroma

    DAT FIFTH MODE OF MELODIC MINOR (aka aeolian/natural minor #3 or major scale b6 b7) THOUGH

    AnkuranDreams

    As someone who hasn't fully studied music theory I have almost no clue what you said

    Tristan Chroma

    @Chillbot17 Scales are simply a collection of notes. The classical Melodic Minor is special in that it's different ascending and descending; for example, here it is built off C-
    Up: C D Eb F G A B C
    Down: C Bb Ab G F Eb D C

    However, this song is in the fifth mode of that; aka, focused around the fifth note, G, making the scale-
    Up: G A B C D Eb F G
    Down: G F Eb D C Bb Ab G

    It results in some pretty interesting ascending and descending harmonic progressions, and the melody in the verses is super dreamy.

    AnkuranDreams

    I see. Thanks for the lesson

    MrResns

    english please :D

    Axys 0 Rex

    "Klayton himself claims to have not studied music theory."

    This now inspires me. I know nothing about how to make music, but often throw stuff together in FL Studio. Nothing amazing, mainly down to knowing nothing about music, but I'm now thinking a lot of practise and maybe I can get good.

    I made the starting sound a while ago b4 I heard this, big ups, great track. Inspirational 

  76. Kevin Burchette

    Out of all the song he has put out recently, this one is my favorite. Its a nice mix of the new direction his music has been going and the sounds from old days. 

  77. MrPikawa

    I sense NIN in this song. Klay, did you inspire? 

    Michael Tabbut

    I can hear it too, reminds me of the Year Zero Album at parts somewhat.

    Chobe

    Absolutely, me too.
    Will it blend? ;)

    Wontolla

    I was half expecting the Downward Spiral theme after 1:52.

  78. Sir Digby Chicken Caesar

    This is awesome. But, when do we get more SotVimH vol 3???

    Sir Digby Chicken Caesar

    There's something very dodgy about all this "chapter" business Klayton does all the time. Seems like he just can't be bothered putting the time or effort in to record full albums properly.

    DatVocals!

    @Max Lees he will bring out a full album with all the songs without the remixes like every time. 

    but i also have to say i'd rather like to have a full album released at once. i hate this bit by bit teasing and by the time the full album appears i have heard the songs a million times... thats kinda lame. 

    but its klaytons way to do it and i respect that, because his music is top notch and truly awesome.

    Sir Digby Chicken Caesar

    SOME of it is. He has a LOT of mediocre shit. Soundtrack for the voices in my head vol 2 and 3 is the only stuff of his I properly love.

    The Sultan of Strange

    @Max Lees Listen to the Blue Stahli remix of Own Little World

    DatVocals!

    @Max Lees i especially love the new stuff since his sound developes to something really complete and atmospheric. i miss this kind of sound with his older stuff or all of blue stahlis stuff. kindo sounds thin and soulless to me.

  79. Cenas Awesome

    awesome!

  80. HighCat

    Little details in Klayton's latest songs are just insane. If you close your eyes and try to listen to every sound, it's mind blowing how much time he spends on adding all these little unique sounds to get the masterpiece complete... Rock on! \m/

    Tuke Lee

    @Sun & Moon his last album 'wish upon a blackstar' is being written into a sci-fi novel. he's such a nerd i love it. so yeah, his albums are like science fiction stories. literally. 

    Raj Viper

    +HighCat He's the best , klayton you're awesome :)

    Gaben ,The Real Ultimate Keyboard Warrior
