"Walk Away From The Sun" as written by Shaun Welgemoed, Dale Stewart and John Humphrey....
Walk away from the sun, come slowly undone
I can see in your eyes, I've already won
I could bleed for a smile, I could cry for some fun
Walk away from the sun and tell everyone, YEAH!

Theres so much left in the air
So much to tell from the stare
Theres so much left to defend, but I am no fun

So turn away from the ones, who hurt everyone
I can tell by your smile, you're comin undone
I could bleed for a smile, could die for a gun
Walk away from the sun and kill everyone, YEAH!

So tiny dancer beware
We're medicated and scared
This smile is so hard to wear, but I have no gun

So turn away from the ones, who hurt everyone
I can tell by your smile, you're comin undone
I could bleed for a smile, could die for a gun

Walk away from the sun and kill everyone

And you're fading with every day [You could've been the next one, you should've been enough for me]
And you're fading with every day [You could've been the next one, you should've been enough for me]
And you're fading with every day [You could've been the next one, you should've been enough for me]
And you're fading with every day [WHOAAAA!]

There's so much left in the air
So much to tell from the stares
There's so much left to defend, but I am no fun

Fading with every day [You could've been the next one, you should've been enough for me]
Fading with every day [You could've been the next one, you should've been enough for me]
And you're fading with every day [You could've been the next one, you should've been enough for me]
And you're fading with every day

Walk away from the sun [fading with every day]
Walk away from the sun [fading with every day]
Walk away from the sun [and your fading with every day]
Walk away from the sun [and your fading with every day]

    General CommentI just have a strong feeling that this song is about drugs.

    "Walk away from the sun, come slowly undone
    I can see in your eyes, I've already won..."
    -I'm sure that in drug addiction, you walk away from happiness [the sun], letting the drug win you over.

    "I could bleed for a smile, I could cry for some fun..."
    -Knowing that eventually drug addicts will do practically anything to get a 'hit', therefore 'bleeding' as in making yourself, and others, hurt, and 'for a smile' means just to make yourself happy by getting a hit.

    "So turn away from the ones, who hurt everyone..."
    -I'm sure drug addicts tend to be paranoid, so this most likely means turning away from the ones you love who you are positive are trying to hurt you, when in fact they want you sober.

    "And you're fading with every day
    [You could've been the next one, you should've been enough for me]..."
    -State the obvious.


    This is merely a theory.

    General CommentTo me this song is about walking away and turning your back on something that made you happy (the sun)

    "Walk away from the sun and tell everyone"

    This is telling everybody that knows about that one thing that makes you happy.

    "Walk away from the sun and kill everyone"

    This has you killing everybody (emotionally) because they can't stand to see you just walk away.

    "Fading with every day"

    This is about you and everybody else being affected by the decision that you've made.

    General CommentI think this song is about leaving something behind, such as leaving the your past, maybe being picked on and having a hard life as a kid maybe. Being bullied and just having rough times and your finally leaving it behind and starting something new. I don't like how people think it's about drugs, people just say that when they don't have a clue what the song is about. This song has a profound meaning and theres something about it that really keeps it close to me.

    General CommentI agree with you, Dan772, about the whole not-liking-that-people-think-it's-about-drugs thing.

    My favorite lyric outta the song is "This smile is so hard to wear..." maybe because I can relate to it so well. There are many times where I've had to fake a smile when it seems like my world is falling apart.. and it's hard to wear, but I'd rather not burden the people I know with my problems.

    General CommentThis Song is About Suicide...Fading With everyday...Walk away from the Sun.

    The Sun is life Giving...You walk away the sun...you slowly start to die...inside and outside...There so much left int he air "Clearing of Thoughts" the Empty stare...there is so much...I can tell by your smile...the concern fake look you get when people don't want to bother you cause of your mood...The Similes so hard to ware..and i have no Gun...I could Bleed for a smile...*cutting* ...

    There's so much left to defend, but I am no fun
    having no self confidence in life anymore....

    Oh course I short handed this...so hey you get the general idea

    General CommentI agree w/ black rose.. It all sounds like the trials one goes through when going through a drug treatment program. The first half of the song seems to deal with the withdrawal phase and the latter half is a reflection of the past and the struggle to maintain sobriety.

    'Theres so much left to defend, but I am no fun'

    This line strikes me as him saying he could go back to drugs and make excuses about it, but instead he's just going to take the sober road.. In the eyes of other users he's not being 'fun'.

    General CommentTHe drug thing is interesting, and sort've fits with my idea of how it makes me feel like someone who loses themselves completely. Personally I see it as a person who does everything for attention "cry for some fun" or to make themselves feel better. and that "walk away fromt he sun, and kill everyone" is like walking away from yourself and your hope and stepping over the bodies of the people in one's life. When A person loses themselves to clockwork in the world it makes me think of someone who is 'fading with every day"

    General CommentYea i think the drug theory is interesting too...but not how i originally took it. I saw it as going through depression [bleeding for smiles-crying for fun], and getting so used to that depression and accepting that there was no way to get happy that you just walk away from the sun and the good things in life. kind of like turning your back on it because it turned your back on you. killing everyone, well i think thats just metaphorically saying you're shutting out all of the poeple in your life that had to do with your happiness... or your loss of it.
