"Brush Away" as written by and Michael Inez Layne Staley....
I could use some time to curl away
My aggression is where you stake your claim
Why I question this curve on which you grade
My conception, a joke or latest craze?
I try to get away, and yet I stick around
So fall and crawl away, and brush away loose ground

My intention, may I arrive at eight?
Lie and dream some, surprise you guys I'm late
All right, correction, forgetting something, wait
I try to get away, and yet I stick around (2x)
So fall and crawl away, and brush away loose ground
Brush away loose ground
Brush away

    General CommentI think it could either be about addiction or celebrity obsession.

    In Layne's case, the two were often interrelated.

    He wants to get away from the rumor mill, or he wants isolation.

    Either one would make sense, I think.
