Blow Away

Album: 14 Shades Of Grey (2003)
  • Live in my head for just one day
    I see myself and look away
    The road is showing now on my face
    Soon I'll disappear with
    I'll disappear without a fucking trace

    Faces that I've seen turn old and gray
    I've lost too many friends along the way
    Memories I never thought would fade
    They fade and Blow Away

    I wish that I could disappear
    Unzip my skin and leave it here
    So I could be no one again
    And never let nobody
    I'd let nobody
    I'd never let nobody in

    Faces that I've seen turn old and grey
    I've lost too many friends along the way
    Memories I never thought would fade
    They fade and Blow Away

    So now the walls are closing in
    Because in life you sink or swim
    Sometimes these shoes don't feel right in my head
    Feel like a book that can't be
    A book that can't be
    A book that can't be read

    Faces that I've seen turn old and grey
    I've lost too many friends along the way
    Memories I never thought would fade
    They fade and Blow Away Writer/s: AARRON LEWIS, MICHAEL MUSHOK, JONATHAN WYSOCKI, JOHN APRIL

  • Jake from Bettendorf, Ianope. This song is about how much he gave up to get where he is and how hes glad he did it. It also says "memories I never thought would fade" the memories of childhood and when he was deppressed with a gun in his throat ready to splatter his brains on the wall
