"Drift And Die" as written by Wesley Scantlin and Jimmy Allen....
Forgotten thoughts of yesterday
Through my eyes I see the past

Well I don't know, I don't know I don't know why
I believe, I believe, I believe in the truth, from inside
Go away go away go away from me
Leave me alone
Ignorance spreads lies
How much will money buy
Well I'll take my time as I drift and die

Unwanted live my life a shame
Who's to blame for my mistakes

Well I don't know, I don't know I don't know why
I believe, I believe, I believe in the truth, from inside
Go away go away go away from me
Leave me alone
Ignorance spreads lies
How much will money buy
Well I'll take my time as I drift and die
As I drift and die, as I drift and die, as I drift and die

Ignorance spreads lies
How much will money bye
Well I'll take my time as I drift and die
As I drift and die, as I drift and die,
As I drift and die, as I drift and die
As I drift and die

    General CommentThis is an AWESOME song and I think that it actually ranks better than the first two songs, Control and Blurry. This is just an AWESOME song a LOCUST is GAY! This is a hard working band out of Kansas City and is not for the teeny boppers! If there was a band and teeny boppers like their songs, that does NOT mean that the band is for TEENY BOPPERS or that they LIKE TEENY BOPPERS! They have no say over who likes them. THAT IS WHY I HATE WHEN TOP 40 STATIONS PLAY PUDDLE OF MUDD OR ANY OTHER GOOD ROCK SONG! Then they get a lot of GAY fans and the song gets WAY OVERPLAYED! Great song though! GO PUDDLE OF MUDD!

    General CommentI LOVE this song and all other songs by Puddle Of Mudd. I think they have lots of talent and they make great songs, with lyics that teenagers can relate to. Come Clean is an awesome CD.

    General CommentThis is a song about gossip and rumors and the people who start them. The lies are pushing him away, destroying his life and he's telling them to leave him alone and go away.

    General CommentThis is song is about Wes Scantlin. When he lived in Kansas City he had a band there. These were like 4 best friends. Well one day Fred Durst came to one of their shows and liked Wes a lot. But he didn't like the rest of the band. So he paid Wes a lot of money to ditch the band and come with Fred. This song is about Wes feeling sorry and missing his friends.

    General Commentwho ever says a band doesnt have ANY talent is totaly wrong, they must have some even if its not in music (wich isnt true with this band) to get there name and meassage out there. i no how hard it is to play music with other people and i think ppl should look at the musicians they listen to before citisising others
