"Walk" as written by Christopher John Thorn, Thomas Rogers Stevens, Brad Smith, Shannon Hoon and Glen Graham....
Find myself singing the same songs everyday
Ones that make me feel good
When things behing the smiles ain't okay

Around and over and in-between the seas
I need to be on top of a mountain
Where I can be see everything
Cause this paranoia's getting old

Now as I open my eyes to start another day
I'm in a pile of puke
Empty bag of execuses
My love for friends and family
you know I need them

And under a sun that's seen it all before
My feet are so cold
And I can't believe that I have to bang my head against this wall again
But the blows they have just a little more space in-between them
Gonna take a breath and try again.

    General CommentAnother song where Shannon battles himself, assuming it was drug influenced also. I deifnately feel these lyrics right now, it leaves that dull depression after taste... which may not sound pleasant, but when you can relate it fills your cup.

    General CommentChanging your mood through music, but everyday it becomes the same songs. Needing to overcome your troubles, and not live in a state of worry...But your addicted to drugs and it's the same story day after day for you (It's become a way of life). Tackling your issues a little at a time, and the pain starts to ease off but maybe it will never end and you just have to cope.

    General CommentI beleive this song represents Shannons heartbreak and downfall to his terrible addiction to drugs. He is sick of trying to quit and falling back into it all again. His family and friends are what he needs but he is so afraid to ask for the help. What a visionable emotional expierience. If only he asked for help...

    General CommentYeah, i would agree that this song is about drug addiction, i hear the lead singer was really into heroin.

    General CommentIt is about his addiction. "My feet are so cold," is a reference to how he is feeling on heroin. He is basically saying he needs to get away from the drugs and get to family & friends, but its too hard.

    General CommentEvery time I hear this song I find new meaning in it. This song has helped me get through many dark times. "And I can't believe I have to bang my head against this wall again." I'd agree with discgo that Shannon's wall was his drug problem. When I listen to the song and I hear that line, I feel tears well up as I think about whatever wall I have been beating my own head against lately (though sometimes I just wonder what was going on with Shannon when he wrote this). But as soon as I hear "But the blows they have just a little more space in between them, gonna take a breath and try again" I feel like there is always hope no matter how badly I have fucked up. This song keeps telling me never to quit. When I'm feeling depressed I listen to this song over and over, and it never fails to inspire me.
    We miss you Shannon.

    "And under a sun that's seen it all before,
    my feet are so cold. And I can't believe that I have to bang my head against this wall again, but the blows they have just a little more space in-between them. Gonna take a breath and try again." ...says it all, great song

    General Commenthe's not happy with himself, the things he'd done....hard to get out of his drug addiction...

    I need to be on top of a mountain
    Where I can be see everything
    Cause this paranoia's getting old

    He knows he need to get out of it.....in order to live happy life and not just a mask he have to put on infront of his family and friends.....

    Have to agree very "touchy" song......makes you want to help him....

    "Gonna take a breath and try again"
    Could somebody please give him the Salvation Army's number?
