Hi,

This is part of a video on "cheating on the SATs".


My parents got a phone call saying that there was a warrant for my arrest, which was scary and shameful. I was, I felt like my world was going to come crashing down.

What does "come crashing down" mean?

I'd appreciate your help.

    Is crashing a participle here, as the willowing in the lyric of a song by Pink Floyd?:

    "The echo of a distant time comes willowing across the sand"
