  • Come and I'll take you under
    This beautiful bruises colors
    Everything fades in time, it's true

    Wish that I had another
    Stab at the under cover
    Was it a change in mind for you?

    It's impossible
    I can't let it out
    You'll never know
    Am I selling you out?
    Sit and watch
    Your every mood

    Your eyes still remind me of
    Angels that hover above
    Eyes that can change from blind to blue

    Now that I've found my reward
    Throw it away long before
    I'd share a piece of mine with you Writer/s: DAVE GROHL, NATE MENDEL, PAT SMEAR

  • Karl from Ingatestone, United Kingdomi used to love how Hey Johnny Park used to fade onto My Poor Brain on the Colour And The Shape album from Foo Fighters, it's a shame that album's disc is f----ng dead now
  • Layton from Paris, TxThis just shows you how much talent Dave Grohl has to be able to come out of the blue like that. The Colour and Shape is a killer album especially this song. It's great how it fades into My Poor Brain which is another great song.
  • Tracy from Tulsa, OkI can't believe there aren't more comments on this song! This song rocks...especially the part that says, "Now that I've found my reward, I'd throw it away long before, I'd share a piece of mine with you." The ultimate kiss my ass.
    YES!
    Definitely one of their best songs.
  • Ash from Charleston, WvYes! Dan in Australia. That is truly a magnificent moment in this song. And you just HAVE to scream along with Dave, no?
  • Dan from Sydney, Australiathe bridge of this song " now that ive found my reward " is awesome .
  • Bert from Pueblo, Nmthis is one of their best songs. I love how it fades into 'My Poor Brain' on the cd.
