"Be Quiet and Drive (Far Away)" as written by Chino Camilo Moreno, Chi Cheng, Stephen Carpenter and Abe Cunningham....
This town don't feel mine
I'm fast to get away, far

I dressed you in her clothes
Now drive me far away, away, away

It feels good to know you're mine
Now drive me far away, away, away
Far away I don't care where
Just far away I don't care where
Just far away I don't care where, just far away
And I don't care

Far away and I don't care where
Just far away and I don't care where
Just far away and I don't care where
Just far away I don't care
Far away and I don't care where
Just far away and I don't care where
Just far away I don't care
Just far away
Just far away, I don't care where
Just far away and I don't care where
Just far away and I don't care where
Just far away, away
Said, far away I don't care where, far away
I don't care just where, just far away
I don't care just where, far away

    General Commentyou cant honestly think this song is about driving or going on a road trip or whatever stupidness. it makes me quite sad to think such ignorant people listen to such great music.

    the song is obviously about some kind of greivance with a female character whos left his life and hes tried to replace her. i also liked the interpretation of it being a kidnapper talking about his crime.

    but no, its not about "getting in your car and turning the AC" on you fuckin idiots.

    General CommentThis song is based on an old depeche mode song about just forgetting all your troubles and leaving on a trip with close friends on a road trip type thing

    That's what Chino said in an interview
    The depeche mode song rules too so check it out

    General CommentI totally agree, AdrenalineKitten - "Passenger" and "BQAD" are great road-trip music. It somehow has the ability to calm you down, and just gets you into the mood for a long drive, or something, atleast it does that to me. There's a lot of energy in most Deftone songs, but those two songs are just so calm and relaxing, and I love that.

    General CommentI think this song is about a serial killer passing through towns committing murder, dressing his victims in his ex's clothes so he can fulfill a fantasy. Reminds me of a Michael Graves song. But everything is open to interpretation. <3

    General Commenthello,i think this song is about how a girl can be the only thing you got when everthing else is fucked.When where you are is so shit "this town dont feel right".Its how when school, life and even yourself is just so fucked up and the only thing you got is your girl and you and her just need to get away.Well thats how i feel....

    General CommentI think this song is about insecurities with one's self and how one usually doesn't want to confront them, but yet they run from them and try to do things so they won't have to look down on themselves. More than likely, insecurities obtained from a failed relationship. And of course, the only thing that can make this person forget about a bad relationship is to start a new one, and then run away (or drive away) and start over.
