"Glide" as written by Dean Deleo, Robert Emile Deleo, Eric Kretz and Scott Richard Weiland....
Torment the tortured, teach me things
I'm so alive
Speak to the speechless
you have inside

You can hunt for the hunter
He's got nowhere to hide
You can seek with the seeker
But hold on for the ride

Keep it coming I'm going all the way
Keep it coming I'm going all the way
Just give me a half a chance
From throwing it all away

Run to the place that hides the pain
you have inside
Cover my chain it hides the strain
only to glide

You can hunt for the hunter
He's got nowhere to hide
You can seek with the seeker
But hold on for the ride

There's nowhere to turn, nowhere to run
You can fly with the fader, fly it.
Fly it on the run.
There is nowhere to turn to nowhere
There is nowhere to run
You can fly with the fader, fly it.
Fly it on the run.

It's too late, time is gone
Later on again 'cause no one's leaving

Look away

    General CommentThis song is purely amazing! I think it's the 'Still Remains' version for the No.4 album lol, it really reminds me of that song but it's still just beautiful

    General Commenti have to agree with some of the people here
    i believe this song is about overcoming something/someone who is holding you back from reaching your full potential

    however id like to point out the irony of the title of the song
    the fact that one is gliding instead of flying says alot
    when you glide you are up high but you are not flying and will eventually hit the bottom and thats what i think this song is about

    General CommentIt sounds like maybe referring to anything that helps you leave life behind not just drugs but anything else.

    General CommentOMG! From the operning riff to the last bar this song scoops u up and elevates u to a place not on this earth. STP #4 is an album partially recorded while Scott was in prison and it's a miracle it even exists. Yeah, it's no Purple but has some of their best ever tracks. True they are mostly about skag addiction but the sheer intensity of them almost makes u feel like u are on drugs. Pruno, Sour Girl, Atlanta and especially Glide just take me away some place else and it's close to where Scott was at the time. I also believe he is a good man and I hope one day STP will refom and headline a rock festival.

    General CommentI love the haunting end of the song especially. This song really gives me hope for what I'm not sure. next to "I Got You" this is my fav song on No. 4

    General CommentWell these lyrics above are incomplete and incorrect in numerous places but nm that... this is in my top 5 songs EVER. Amazing falcetto, beautiful musicianship (as always)... it's almost enough to make me believe in God. Probably about trying to beat addiction and save his own life.

    General CommentTo me this song is about redemption. It's probably about Scott's drug problems, but to me it's about seeking a second chance in life or even a second chance with a relationship (any kind of relationship). At the same time, he accepts the fact that it's hopeless and "there is nowhere to fly", but still hopes for even "half a chance".

    BTW, Top 5 best songs EVER!
