"Turn Away" as written by and Beck Hansen....
Turn turn away
From the sound of your own voice
Calling no one, just a silence
Run to see you at the edge
Fall off the avalanche
Turn away

Hold hold the light
That fixes you in time
Keeps you under
Takes you over
The wall that love divides, between waking and slumber
Turn away

Turn turn away
From the weight of your own past
It's magic for the devil
And betray the lack of change
Once you have spoken
Turn away

    General CommentI believe this is about acknowledging and moving beyond past betrayals of self via inaction. The references to events of the past are passive, while the encouragement to speak and turn away are present and active.
