Lost in your eyes, can't you find
My intent to leave
Taken to me, don't you see
It's time for me to leave

Distance aside, I realize
How you make me feel
Just call my name, we live the day
To find somewhere to heal

I can see far away
Feeling me forever
I can see far away
Looking back, keeping us apart

There's no one who knows me (There's no one who cares)
There's no one
I sit and stare (It follows me)
Wasting all our fears

I can see far away
Feeling me forever
I can see far away
Looking back, keeping us apart

Looking to me will get you nowhere, fast
I hope you see what you have done to me
Your pain is near, you run again
I try to save you all your style

I can see far away
Feeling me forever
I can see far away
Looking back, keeping us

I can see far away (I don't know who you are)
Feeling me forever
I can see far away (I don't know who you are, anymore)
Looking back, keeping us apart

Ahhhhhhhhhh.... (I don't know who you are)
Ahhhhhhhhhh.... (I don't know who you are)

    General CommentThis song is actually by the band Thread. I posted these lyrics BEFORE that info was released on the internet and I found that out on the Jerry Cantrell message boards about a month ago. Not my fault... that same site (bacus.net) said this song was AIC and everyone did as it was on the TWP boot. Can't blame me so dont come here and bitch quickpost.

    General CommentRelax dave; I was only spreading the info for others who come in the future. I considered John's news monumental since this was final clarification on something that had been bothering lots of people ever since it was misattributed on the Tasty White Powder bootleg. Notice in my comment under "Blue" (Aviary Glands) how much I stressed exactly how little information there was on this, here in 2006 with the Internet what it is. I was just amazed that no one had any real answer, and I was happy to see someone come up with a definitive answer after so many years of uncertainty.
