"Blow It All Away" as written by Blair Nicholas Somerled Mackichan, Kevin Alexander Armstrong and Felix Starbuck Howard....
Without a sound ever heard
Without a lesson I have learned
You are foolish
And diluted

Too many lies have you burned
Where there's eyes to be found
This seems life's underground

But even if you had it all
You would find
I could never let you stay

Cause you blow it all away
You blow it all away
Blow it all away

If you go
I will stall

Yes I see it
Yes I feel it
You have no oppressions at all

But if life is truly devoured
I'll strip your bare 'till the truth comes out

But even if you had it all
You would find

You blow it all
You blow it all away
Blow it all away

Blow it all, blow it all, blow it all, away

Forever is your mind to be naive
Remember it will bring us to our years
You blow it all away

But even if you had it all
You would find

You blow it all
You blow it all away
Blow it all away
Blow it all, blow it all, blow it all
Blow it all, blow it all, blow it all

Blow it all away
Blow it all away
Blow it all away
You blow it all away

    General Comment1st stanza:
    Even after all I've learned about you and the world, after all this time, I always knew, from the very beginning that you were stupid and weak

    2nd Stanza:
    (Note: I always heard the word "lies" as "lines", which would make sense, as the title "Blow it All Away" is a cocaine reference, but I'll provide interpretation to both...)
    With it being "lies": you're a liar, you'll lie to anyone, but you live in solitude? not so sure on this...
    With it being "lines": How is it that you can do so much cocaine? You're not picky about who you do it with, either. You live in the underground party scene... you're a fake.

    3rd Stanza:
    Even if you had everything, I could never let you back into my life [underlying message: we were such good friends. what happened?]

    4th Stanza:
    You're too busy doing coke, and you're [literally] blowing away everything you have.

    5th and 6th Stanzas:
    If you die, I'll stall my own death and learn from your mistakes [by not doing cocaine] (again, not sure on this), I see and feel that you are not being brought down by anyone, not me, nor the drug.

    Stanzas 7, 8, and 9:
    If you want to be destroyed by the drugs, it's your perrogitive, but I won't let it happen: I'll fight you to the core of the lies, but you won't let me, because you're so intent on blowing everything that you have going for you.

    Stanzas 10-the end:
    If you want to be naive, that's fine, but eventually, you will be held accountable for your actions, and you must act your age, dropping that naiviety bull****, and if you don't you'll blow it all away, just like you're doing now.

    General CommentI'm almost positive she said "you are foolish and DELUDED"

    Great song, one of my favourites by Sia.

    General CommentYep it's definitely 'deluded', I just checked the album booklet.

    Also, it's 'Where there's ice to be found / Deceit lies underground' and 'If you call, I would fall / Can you see it? / Can you feel it? / You have no questions at all / And if love is to be found / I'll strip you bear till truth astounds' in the second verse. And it's 'Forever EASE your mind, be naive / Remember it will bring YOU to YOUR knees / So throw it all away.'

    Lyric CorrectionWithout a sound ever heard
    Without a lesson I've learned
    You're foolish and deluded
    Too many lies have you burned

    Where there's ice to be found
    Deceit lies underground

    But even if you had it all
    You would find
    I could never let you stay
    'Cause you'd blow it all away
    Blow it all away
    Blow it all away

    If you call
    I will stall
    Yes I see it
    Yes I feel it
    You have no questions at all

    But if love is to be found
    I'll strip you bare 'til truth astounds

    Even if you had it all
    You would find
    You'd blow it all
    You'd blow it all away
    Blow it all away
    Blow it all, blow it all, blow it all
    Blow it all, blow it all, blow it all

    Forever ease your mind, be naive
    Remember it will bring us to our knees
    So throw it all away

    'Cause even if you had it all
    You would find
    You'd blow it all
    You'd blow it all away
    Blow it all away
    Blow it all, blow it all, blow it all
    Blow it all, blow it all, blow it all

    I would blow it away, oh
    I would blow it away
    I would blow it away, oh
    You'd blow it away
