"Bonedriven" as written by and Gavin Rossdale....
We're just a wish away
Twenty seventh letter
Much maligned
Beat me clever
Say you will
Never mind
Open up
Open wide

Bonedriven
Bonedriven
See we're taking all the life

To all pollutants
Shave your face
We're all confusion
We're all the rage
Isolate
Crowd out
All that's left
Inside out
Heaven knows who walks away
Heaven knows who walks walks

Bonedriven
Bonedriven
See we're taking all the life
Bonedriven
Bonedriven
See we're taking all the life

I was wrong and I will wait
I was wrong and I will wait
I was wrong and I will I will I will wait

A thousand lamps
Won't lift the dark
Rest of our lives
Might have already passed

Bonedriven
Bonedriven
See we're taking all the life
Bonedriven
Bonedriven
See we're taking all the life
See we're taking all the life

    General CommentDude this is such a beautiful song, im surprised that no ones asid anything about it. MAbye cause its really hard to get. Its such a "let me wallow in my sorrow" type of song and i love it. I think its about a girl that hes so close to having but shes really hurting him. Its painful, bonedriven pain. Hes willing to wait and shes just sucking the life out of him.. ITs a beautiful song. Sorrow

    General CommentTo me, Bonedriven is about a guy who had this girlfriend and he broke it off. Later in life, he realizes what a mistake he's done and wishes for her back. He tells her about this and she's not ready to be hurt again. The lines that support my idea are, "I was wrong, I will wait." This states that he's realized his mistakes and he'll wait however long it takes for her to come back to him not and accept that he's ade a mistake and regrets it. Another line is "Reset of our lives might have already passed." When Gavin says this, he is saying that he's made the mistake, and it ma be too late to take it back. Their time may have already passes, she may have moved on.
    I may be wrong on this, I wouldn't be surprised.
    Either way, great song.

    General CommentCan't believe song by bush would go unposted for two years!! It's my opinion this song is about the modern media. Bonedriven means about how things are drilled into your head everywhere you go. "To all pollutants, share your face" is how they are only interested in new things. "Heaven knows who walks away" is about how you very really see how things turn out on the news and things because its never focussed on long enough to get the entire story. I cant be bothered to post my interpretation of every single line so I'll leave it there n let u work out the rest.
    Anyway, thats my opnion.
