"Keep Away" as written by and Salvatore P. Erna....
Sickness spilling through your eyes,
Craving everything that you thought was alive
Stab me in my heart again
Drag me through you wasted life
Are you forever dead?

Do like I told you, stay away from me
Never misunderstand me, keep away from me

Twistin' everything around that you say
Smack me in my mouth 200 times every other day
Rag me, I don't hear you anymore,
Not yet, find out what it means to me
I don't know who you are

Do like I told you, stay away from me
Never misunderstand me, keep away from me
Do like I told you, stay away from me
Never misunderstand me

Dragging on so lonely, aren't you tired baby
Breathing life into your lungs,
Are you immune to me

Do like I told you, stay away from me
Never misunderstand me, keep away from me
Do like I told you, stay away from me
Never misunderstand me
Keep away from me
Never misunderstand me
Never misunderstand me
Never misunderstand me

    General CommentThis song is about a girl name Lisa that broke his heart and married his friend....this is according to his book...when he references being smacked in the mouth is when she would lose her temper and slap him. Later she returns and breaks up a relationship between him and another girl named Erin...Moonbaby is a song about her.

    General CommentThis song is insanely intense and definately the best Godsmack tune. It has one of the best sounding riffs ive ever heard. Props to them for such a sweet tune.

    General CommentThe vocals on the acoustic version of this song I tend to like just a little bit more than the plugged in version, Thats just me though, either way this song is kick ass!

    General CommentI couldn't really figure out this song, untill i saw the video for it. It's about being a kid (or teenager, whatever), and how during those times, everyones telling you what to do and how to act. Bullies, adults, etc.

    General Commentthis might be completely wrong but to me this seems like two people who had a strong relationship or friendship and one of the two lied/cheated,or done something that really hurt the other and denying that they did what they did, making the other person feel so betrayed and hurt to where they dont even want to be in the presence of you, they try and make things better but the other person is just completely done and wants nothing to do with them and wants them out of thier life cause they dont need "a "friend" like you."



    ahh sorry if it didnt make sense but thats what it means to me and that is exactly whats goin on between me and my ex and it sucks cause im the one who has to stay away from him
