"Wish 'Em All Away" as written by and Daniel Anthony/mcnamara Mcnamara....
Stars are wheeling in the sky,
I guard the last of my line,
Like a sleeping army I will wait.

So drum the devils out your dreams,
And send them all to meet me.
I will lay me down until you're safe.

So you'll have nothing to face,
Close your eyes and wish 'em all,
Wish 'em all,
Wish 'em all,
Wish 'em all away,
And everything will change.

Though the last of your defence,
Would crumble at the first test,
I will stop it all from happening.

Tomorrow you will rise and sing,
And never want for anything at all,
I will bring, I will bring.

Now you'll have nothing to face,
Close your eyes and wish 'em all,
Wish 'em all,
Wish 'em all,
Wish 'em all away,
And everything will change.

Close your eyes and wish 'em all,
Wish 'em all,
Wish 'em all,
Wish 'em all away.

Now if you look out you'll find,
Us standing in a line.
Just understand you're safe.
Understand that everything will change,
If you just wish 'em all,
Wish 'em all,
Wish 'em all,
Wish 'em all away.

Everything will change,
Understand and wish 'em all
Wish 'em all,
Wish 'em all,
Wish 'em all away.

Wish 'em all away.
Wish 'em all away.
Wish 'em all away.
Wish 'em all away.

    General Commenti can't believe no-one has commented!! this is the best track on the album.

    to me it makes the most sense if you apply it to him singing to his child, he's trying to protect the child from everything, even the devils in his dreams.

    but it can equally apply to anyone you love completely - you want to keep them safe from any harm.

    General Commenti agree too this is my second favorite after "gravity", is true is like he is with his child waiting until he sleeps so he feels safe, is a good song to console a child that is having nightmares or is afraid of a monster under his bed, i love Embrace

    General CommentTo me, this song kind of sounds as though it's about someone who uses sleep to escape what happens during the day (Close your eyes and wish 'em all...). But maybe it reaches a point where they even feel scared to sleep, so this song is like a promise that no matter what happens, he will keep them safe and when they wake up everything will be ok again (Tomorrow you will rise and sing, And never want for anything at all, I will bring, I will bring,Know you'll have nothing to face).

    Regardless, this is a beautiful song.
