  • I think I'm breaking out
    I'm gonna leave you now
    There's nothing for me here it's all the same
    And even though I know
    That everything might go
    Go downhill from here I'm not afraid

    Way away away from here I'll be
    Way away away so you can see
    How it feels to be alone and not believe
    Anything

    You can't stop me now
    You can't hold me down
    You can't keep me here I'm on my way
    I made it this far now
    And I'm not burning out
    No matter what you say I'm not afraid

    Way away away from here I'll be
    Way away away so you can see
    How it feels to be alone and not believe
    Anything

    Letting out the noise inside of me
    Every window pane is shattering
    Cutting up my words before I speak
    This is how it feels to not believe

    Way away away from here I'll be
    Way away away so you can see
    How it feels to be alone and not believe

  • Meg from Jacksonville, FlThese guys have made a huge impact on my life and i will forever be greatful. i've listened to them since they first came out cause my older brother was friends with ryan. i LOVE the music and i hope they never change.
  • Ariana from Lima, PeruI agree with gabe. One of the things i love da most about this band is that u can actually see dat he really feels wut he sings and dat makes it more special, i guess..
  • Chloe from Hampshire, EnglandIn the chorus ("Way away away from here I'll be, way away away so you can see how it feels to be alone and not believe, how it feels to be alone and not believe anything") I think he's saying to everybody that the band left behind, that they went and followed their dreams and believed and those who got left behind are the ones who er left sour because they didn't believe and forgot what they really wanted. Its a good lesson really
  • Craig from Chester, Vai believe its talking about bein in a place that no one can harm you but you also cant help... thats just my opinion though
  • Gabe from Utica, NyI also think that this song has one of the best bridges in modern music.
  • Gabe from Utica, NyThis song is also great to wake up to. The guitar in this song is incredible. One thing I like about Ryan Keys is that when he sings he puts everything into it and really means it. And he's like that in the videos too. Especially this video.
