"Wash Away" as written by and Joe/roche Smith....
Sad memories the gathering rain brings
I loved her but I'll never see her again
Clouds raise their heads in the morning
The way I once walked on by her
But now she's gone and I'll never raise my face again

White horses dragged my lover from me
The clouds rushed in and drowned my sorrow with the rain

My friends try to lift me
They understand how I'm feeling
But the truth holds me down
She came and went with the rain

White horses dragged my lover from me
The clouds rushed in and drowned my sorrow...
With the rain

Now always the storms come...
Raindrops run down my windows
All that's left is her picture
But someday it to will
Wash away...
Wash away...
I watched her walk away,
With the rain

    General CommentYeah TSOL are awesome and this song is one of their best.
    BUT
    Alkaline trio did a brilliant job of covering it.

    General CommentBleh, This is one of the many god-awful covers of classic punk songs on the new tony hawk game.

    this was originally by TSOL, on the album "Beneath The Shadows". But I doubt most people who hear this song dont know its a cover let along who TSOL is.

    General CommentNo need to crap on the song just because its a cover. Alkaline Trio (besides making their own AMAZING music) does awesome covers actually, this being one of them. I'm not saying that all of the covers on the album are worth checking out, but this one is. I do, though, recommend checking out TSOL....good stuff!

    General CommentI dunno. Though I love TSOL I think I like what Alkaline Trio did with this song more. Matt Skiba's voice is smoother, and I think the instruments are more distinct.

    Moving on: To me, this song could be one of two things. One, a guy who's sad because his girlfriend/lover died. Or, two, he views it as her being dragged away because he's in denial, like he thinks that it's somehow not her fault.

    General CommentThis song is one of the few good covers on the soundtrack. The other good ones are:
    Institutionalized-Senses Fail
    Suburban Home/I Like Food-Taking Back Sunday (Descendants)
    Astrozombies-My Chemical Romance (Misfits)
    Search And Destroy-Emanuel The Stooges)
    Sonic Reducer-Saves The Day

    By the way, anyone else notice the similarity between the album cover and The Clash's London Calling? Pretty sweet.
