"So Far Away" as written by and Johnny/takac Rzeznik....
Why do you stare me down?
Am I wrong?
Should I turn and kiss the ground?
And I never felt that way
I ain't the one and you know I don't come from such a place

And I didn't get those things
Those things that you can't grow
You say that it's all my fault
And I don't need to know

Tell me something I don't know
And I'll find that I'm always looking 'round behind me
You said that it's all been said before
Now I find that there's something I don't know

And I hate your attitude
I ain't scared at all 'cause it don't matter what you do
And I'll turn around to see the truth
You're tearing it down, yeah, you're bringing it down
And it's all on you

And I didn't get those things
Those things that you can't grow
You say that it's all my fault
And I don't need to know

Tell me something I don't know
And I'll find that I'm always looking 'round behind me
You said that it's all been said before
Now I find that there's something I don't know

And I know
I don't know
(Rock and roll)
And I'll stay there
If you break enough glass and there's no one to hear
And your heart's full of hate 'cause your mind's full of fear
Let it go

Oh, so far away
So far away
So far away
(Something I don't know)
Oh, so far away
So far away
So far away

    General CommentComing from the common thread in John's songs about not living up to other's expectations (And I never felt that way/I ain't the one and you know I ain't from such a place), I think it's about a rocky relationship that's major problem is the other person (You're tearing it down, ya you're bringing it down/and it's all on you)

    General CommentThis is my favourite song on 'Superstar Carwash'

    I love the way Robby and Johnny collaborate and both sing songs on this album.
    When Robby comes in with "something i don't know" - *sigh*. That's just the best thing ever.

    The lyrics "if you break enough glass and there's no one to hear with your heart full of hate and your minf full of fear" mean a lot to me.
    I think this song has a lot to do with harbouring feelings of anger and helplessness at the same time.
