Away From Me

Album: Life On Display (2003)
Charted: 55 72
  • Frontman Wes Scantlin on VH1: "'Away From Me' was written on the road. Basically I was being lied to and deceived - as usual - by someone else, so the whole thing is about deception. It's hard, because everything that I wrote about actually happened. After the relationship fell apart, all the lyrics [turned out to be] basically true. I wanted to stay with the person, but she was sinister. So getting out of it was probably a blessing in disguise - and I got a really passionate song out of the whole thing."
