"Shade" as written by Benjamin David Gillies and Daniel Paul Johns....
If your hurt
Why don't you tell someone
Don't feel bad
You're not the only one yeah
Don't go hiding
Hiding in the shade
Don't go hiding
Hiding in the shade

If you were abused
Find someone to help you
I know you were used
What are you gonna' do?
Yeah

Don't go hiding
Hiding in the shade
Don't go hiding
Hiding in the shade

Don't go hiding
Hiding in the shade
Don't go hiding,
Hiding, in the shade,
Hiding, hiding, don't go,
Hiding, hiding, hiding, in the shade,
Yeah, in the shade, in the, in the shade,
In the shade, in the shade, in the shade.

    General CommentReminds me of rape victims. It also reminds me of Nirvana, whom silverchair took a lot of inspiration from in the early days. I like this song.

    General CommentThis is a song many young people should really listen to and really take the advice it gives, but sadly most don't, and they suffer un-necessarily
