"Distant Voices" as written by and Gavin Rossdale....
I never thought I'd get away
Cause all there is is fading fast today
Maybe you sleep well in your head
Bring on the night let the cold moon burn instead

Cause I'm gonna find my way to the sun
If I destroy myself

Swallowing habits die real hard
And the coat she wore could not conceal the scars
Beneath the magic of her lace
Are a thousand lonely faces she can't place

'cause I'm gonna find my way to the sun
If I destroy myself
I can shine on
I'm gonna find my way to the sun
When I destroy myself
I can shine on
Shine shine shine

Sooner or later masturbate or lose
Stationary west way running from the view
In true the self destructive veins
We have found a way to keep the gifts that maims

Cause I'm gonna find my way to the sun
If I destroy myself
I can move on
I'm gonna find my way to the sun
If I destroy myself
I can shine on
Shine
I'm gonna find my way to the sun
If I destroy myself I can shine on
Shine shine shine

    General CommentAnyone know what's going on with the secret song/noise track that comes in a little bit after this song? It sounds like a bit of a reprise of "History."

    General Commenti think in the chords he just wants to get away,
    destroy himself, go to heaven and get away from all the feelings... and shine

    General CommentI always found this song to be about finding strength in yourself and just letting yourself go for it. Sure, there's a risk of possibly failing, but you gotta take that step at some point. If you do fail, you sometimes have the right and the pride to know that you actually went for it and that makes you shine on for a bit. You're no longer really thinking about "should I or what if?" Before you were just there imagining what to do, not anymore.

    General Commentthis song in the PA community is very uplifting, even though i do not think it was meant to be interpreted that way, this song means something different to anyone who listens to it because it relates to whatever problem your going though.
