Meaning of "after fall"
I'm having problem with sentece "I survived after the fall":
Phonetically "I survived the after fall" could sound better. But I have feeling the switch of "the" and "after" words would chance the whole meaning of the sentece.
The context is that the person in question survived a cataclysm/event that basically wiped out population in the designated area. And the "fall" is the wipe-out event/the disaster, in my understanding.
The sentence is actually part of the lyrics from a song known as "September" by "Living Tombstone":
"I just remembered,
What happened in September;
I'm the one who killed them all,
I survived after the fall."
