The mind is grey like the city, packing in and overgrown
Love is deep, dig it out
Standing in a hole alone
Working for something that one can never hold
A place in the clouds
Good place to hide oh my oh...
So I'm flying (away, away)
Driving (away, away)
Finding hope in ways I missed before
I missed before
The tv, she talks to me
Breaking news and building walls
Selling me what I don't need
I never knew soap made you taller
So I'm riding (away, away)
Hiding (away, away)
So much talk it makes no sense at all
My senses have gone... awol, awol, awol, awol, awol...
So I'm hiding (away, away)
Driving (away, away)
Passing new friends I won't know at all
Won't know at all
It doesn't hurt when I bleed
But my memories, they eat me
I've seen it all before...
Bring it on, cause I'm no victim
Dying (away, away)
Dying (away, away)
Dying
Dying...

    General CommentThat writer is Eddie Vedder...or is it? Actually, I THINK that Ed Ved wrote this one...

    I like this song, but it's kind of weak compared to the best stuff on Riot Act...

    I don't really like the chorus, it kind of bogs down the song, but a nice performance by McCready saves it.

    It's basically just about wanting to get away from everything...to be a "ghost" in the world.

    General CommentThis song is just a sarcastic way of saying the T.V runs the mind and that this country's media runs it on fear

    General CommentWhen the ego has died, you may feel like a ghost or angel... Walking dead still in the world... All the ego based talk other people dish out, "look at my pretty clothes", "that makes me angry", just get's pretty hard to take. So you have to hide away and learn how to tolerate it.
