"Hide" as written by Bernie Herms, Jason Rauch, Anthony Armstrong and Rob Graves....
Waste away
I'm crawling blind
Hollowed by what I left inside
For you, just you
I'm caught in place
But I ignore what I can't erase

I will run and hide till memories fade away
And I will leave behind a love so strong

Close my eyes theses voices say
Haunting me, I can't escape
For you, just you
Time will always wait
While I throw away what I can't replace

I will run and hide till memories fade away
And I will leave behind a love so strong [x2]

I will run and hide!
And I will leave behind!

I will run and hide till memories fade away
And I will leave behind a love so strong!

    General CommentTo me, this song is about running from God and not dealing with your sin ("followed by what I left inside"). That cliche saying "you can run but you can't hide" is pretty much what the song deals with. Even though the person is running away, he/she still can't escape God's voice (close my eyes, these voices stay/ haunting me, i can't escape...) Running away from God is essentially throwing away His love, and that's something you won't find anywhere else.

    This entire CD is amazing, especially for a new band. If you don't have it, go buy it.

    General Comment"Waste away, I'm crawling blind": Helpless an defenseless without God....
    "I will run and hide 'til
    Memories fade away
    And I will leave behind a
    Love so strong"- They will run away from God, leaving behind His love, which is so very strong... that's all I could interpret.

    General Commentthis song to me is about a person who has commited a serious sin and no longer feels worthy of anything. instead of repenting, he trys running away from god. a serious mistake, as he soon finds out. he realizes that nothing can replace the love that god shows us, and that he left it behind. god will forgive us for our sins, so long as we repent and are truly sorry.

    General Commentuh, i think that they messed up on the lyrics here - they should be "Waste away
    I'm crawling blind
    Hollowed by what I left inside
    For you, just you
    I'm caught in place
    But I ignore what I can't erase

    I will run and hide till memories fade away
    And I will leave behind a love so strong

    Close my eyes theses voices say
    Haunting me, I can't escape
    For you, just you
    Time will always wait
    While I throw away what I can't replace

    I will run and hide till memories fade away
    And I will leave behind a love so strong [x2]

    I will run and hide!
    And I will leave behind!

    I will run and hide till memories fade away
    And I will leave behind a love so strong!"

    oh, and my meaning is how he is trying to change the way he lives and make it so that when he dies there is a strong memory of him and a strong love of god.

    just me though >.

    My Interpretationthere seems to be alot of emphasis on god in most people's opinions i think it's much simpler than that it's about a persons self destructive tendencies as they push away a person who loves them so much and they will find no one who will care them about them that much. Yet for some reason they feel they need to leave them maybe for example they feel it's to early in his life or he hasn't experianced enough or maybe your sinning idea was right and he's betrayed her trust and feels that stressing her with the whole i cheated on you thing is worse than running and taking it as his burden as if he doesn't deserve forgiveness.

    General CommentI was thinking maybe that when it says "WHile I throw away, what I can't replace" maybe its talking about the persons life... maybe God's love makes sense too. And "While I ignore what I cant erase" does seem like seem like its talking about a sin or something

    My OpinionWe cannot replace time - while for God it stands still, we're just throwing it away. We're wasting precious time by hiding from, and not facing, our challenges, our past, etc.
