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 CommentI completely agree with hihoricherino. This is a masterclass in song writing and a lot of bands would do well to look to Weller for inspiration. An excellent song.

    General CommentI think this song is about waking up out of an introverted, shy-like shell to more thoroughly engage the world around us and the people in it. It's a great message for any kid in school who feels intimidated by the illusion of an unengagable world, or the lonely heart who is too shy to grab life by the horns and take the girl of his dreams into his arms. Simple, to the point, and certainly no hit.. this is the Jam at their finest.
