Alice In Chains - Brush Away Lyrics



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

Alice In Chains Brush Away Comments
  1. Scean lyonz

    Tripod is an amazing album

  2. Paul Paul

    Love it

  3. William Bates

    A definite classic

  4. johnny krueger

    This song is a great example how little details can make a song even more perfect than it already is,
    that little 'yeah' at 2:05 and that noise to finish the solo at 2:45
    Might sound stupid but I can't help how my ears and brains melt everytime

  5. SJ DS

    At least 8 guitar tracks. Sure can’t do it live with one. Genius anyway.

  6. PeterThaBeater

    1. Jar of Flies
    2. Dirt
    3. Facelift
    4. Self-titled
    5. Sap
    6. Black Gives Way to Blue
    7. Rainier Fog
    8. TDPDH

  7. Lyndon Geer

    When I think of the eerie dark lonely nights I spent in the late 90s early 2000s this is what I was jamming...what was the fucking msg. Whatever it was, it was weird as fuck.

  8. akeno himejima

    This is the very first album I got from Alice In Chains. Now imma fan for fucking life. 🤟🏿👅🤟🏿

  9. Kng Qwrty

    Someone’s gotta admit that the bass in this song is awesome

  10. aamburgey69

    I have been searching for months, I forgot this song existed

  11. kaant

    The bit is just like “I cant remember”

  12. ChevKen

    24 years old already.

  13. RevenantRoad Records

    "Brush Away"

    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 
    So fall and crawl away, and brush away loose ground
    Brush away loose ground
    Brush away

  14. Pauline Arsenault

    How name jack

  15. Pauline Arsenault

    Well baby

  16. Pauline Arsenault

    Hello baby

  17. Pauline Arsenault

    U there baby

  18. postmortem skulldrag

    McFuck you looking at?

  19. mat mat

    Jesus Haploid Christ, dat bass during the chorus sounds like a horn blare from a truck coming your way to obliterate you.

  20. Kevin Whiting

    So slimey n sludgy... Love it

  21. Brady Hess

    Awesome song writing and performance. Priceless message for anyone. God bless AIC.

  22. Warcrazer

    2:26 the grungyest solo of all time.

  23. Scooter

    That intro riff... So simple yet so hypnotic and memorable.

  24. Jeremy Hines

    This IS my favorite song by them

  25. makaveli237

    That grunt ‘yeah’ is biblical 2:06

  26. C.E. Parks

    This was right after Demri died right? Or right before?

    Lotto Fever

    Demri died in late 1996. This was released in 1995 I believe.

  27. Doomer K Kid

    This is the first Alice In Chains album I ever owned. Since then I've been obsessed

  28. RELENTLEZZ viciouz

    ULTIMATE FAVORITE 💯

  29. Elisa ELIA

    0:01- 0:09 one of The best parts

  30. Percy Femur

    Best track on tripod imo

  31. Elisa ELIA

    1:03- 1:04

  32. Elisa ELIA

    1:05 1:06 1:07 1:08 1:09 best parts

    M.L. Crow

    I would say from start to finish

  33. Spicy Special

    This and So Close are two of my favorite tracks on this album.

  34. VTP01

    Wish they had released this instead of Heaven Beside you. So much stronger with a better hook. HBY is just boring. Can barely hear Layne on it.

  35. thatguy onxbox

    Listening to AiC literally FEELS like listening to Nirvana. Guy sounds alot like Kurt and both band's guitars have that eerie sound

    Hoovy 11

    I thought I was the only one who thought layne sounds like Kurt

    Lotto Fever

    That eerie guitar feedback sound u hear after the solo ends sounds like what u hear on Nirvana's Radio Friendly Unit Shifter.

    M.L. Crow

    Listening to AIC literally FEELS like listening to Nirvana? Kurt and Layne sound alike? Let's don't get carried away. Maybe there are some similarities (in some songs) but in general the bands are so different (musically, vocally,...)

  36. Marco Tulio Hernández

    "I loved my self while I was drinking, it was other people who had a problem."
    Then after I'd kick their ass, they'd call the cops!

  37. Blaise Castelli

    Fuck yes!! AIC at their best!! This fuckin bass is in my soul

  38. Robin U

    This album is such an amazing hiden gem

  39. VTP01

    Wish they made a video for this one, such an underrated song.

  40. GalacticGamer26

    This song is sick.

  41. josh weinberg

    I tried to get away & yet I stick around

  42. John Evatt

    23 yrs since I first heard, tonight I'm gonna learn it

  43. Brian McNamara

    Why don’t they play this live? Come on Jerry...

    Jonh Monroney

    Cuz no one sounds like Layne. AIC isnt working for me these days. i cant wrap my head around it without LS

  44. Mike Troc

    Def least fav AIC album to date...even including the ones with will

    M.L. Crow

    For me this one and Dirt are their best.

  45. Andy81 Andy81

    Still listening to in 2018

  46. Aaron Shensky

    Man love this song. Aic my favorite band. The noise at 2:45 is awesome to. I get chills every time

  47. Jaden McKillip

    I do like a few songs off this album, but I literally cringe every time I listen to one of the songs

  48. da man

    AICs w Layne at there grooving riffing killer fkin lyrics haunting vocals rocking backing vocals 1996 best 👍!!!!!!!!!!

  49. Joe Tomasso

    Overlooked song and record. One of their best.

    Jonh Monroney

    overlooked by who. Fans of justin beiber?

    NothingBut70s80s90s -

    Alice in Chains fans don't overlook anything

    NothingBut70s80s90s -

    I think your new to this

    Bryan Mack

    NothingBut70s80s90s - Casual AIC fans maybe...the ones who never explored beyond Dirt

    William Oliveira

    Some uncalled-for replies, just compare these Self Titled views to Dirt views, so much less views than Dirt, and even Cantrell solo work is underlooked by most, not everyone is a hardcore Alice in Chains fan.

  50. Rick Carr

    I recently re discovered this song,kind of forgot about this one and have been jamming to it non stop for days..it is a bad ass tune.r.i.p. layne we still love and adore you.your legacy lives within your fans still to this day.

  51. FAH Q

    This is their best album ironically enough it includes more of Layne contributing lyrically. Nonetheless best song ever.

  52. Alberto aka Turtleman

    the Guitar sound at 2:35 so nice

  53. Buddy Pesofiga

    Alice In Chains video TRISCUIT

  54. Black Biggot

    My fave aic song

  55. Kurt Cox

    I got click baited I thought this was a live version eventhough I knew better!

  56. MusicFan05

    One of my favorite AIC songs 🤘

  57. Jeremy Hines

    Maaaan this is the sickest fkn song I swear they put out. It's the hardest I think.

  58. Keith Thompson

    Music is my religion and Layne is my god

    Jonh Monroney

    There is only one God
    only through truth and Christ will God know you.

    Wrythil Valice

    @Jonh Monroney Real buzzkill hardass arent you?

    Jonh Monroney

    @Kratom connoisseur all religions stem from pagan and babylonian devil worship

    CM Doseck

    You knew you were gonna catch crap for this comment didn't you😁

    Allison Chains

    @Jonh Monroney Oh shut up.

  59. Lukas Mäks

    This is definitely one of the best non-singles that AIC has ever released.

  60. dopechill

    the guitar in the song is just amazing

  61. Minnie W

    This was the first song that really got me into Alice in Chains ❤

    brokenbythoumaster

    Could we be soulmates?, brush away first for me then god am can't remember what was next because I wasn't too fond of the rest of that album for the longest time, thankfully I started to get it and it all started to grow on me now I love this album only a of songs i maybe skip, but in those 2 or 3 songs I maybee skip even when It's not very good it's still pretty good!, I don't t like the track arrangement though for some reason I prefer to put it on random, or just selectively choose instead don't know why

    CHRIS BROESKY

    Same here. 10 years old listening to it on headphones on my dad's stereo staring at the album artwork.

    C Man

    Late in the game

  62. Jimmy The Clown

    Should've been a Hit Single

    Stomper Classic

    Jamie Hellfire it is

    xxjoeyladxx

    Stomper Classic
    This song has never been a single.

  63. maddyBOOMbaddy BADDY

    I just got really into AIC lately i never knew how fucking kick ass they are. RIP LAYNE STALEY

  64. Senior Sensi

    Saved me from bad trips aplenty....

    August Weir

    word. ive always though aic would not bring good vibes on psychs.

  65. Lukas Mäks

    This is one of the greatest non-singles that Alice in Chains has ever composed (that didn't appear on "Dirt")!

  66. Some guy on the Internet

    One of the best tracks from the self-titled release.

  67. MKFann

    2:34 is by far my favorite moment on this album.

    It only took me years to decide among all kinds of moments, but I finally think I've decided.

    Minnie W

    Mariokartfann yes the guitars !

    Jack Pearson

    thanks for the input boss but respectfully fack qoff

    chuck

    no mate It will change..too mch good

    Blue - Verona X

    That's Jerry for you man always kicking that rampages asshole

  68. mr anonymous

    The bass on this song kind of reminds me of Wherever I May Roam by Metallica

  69. James Ackerland

    listen to while at work to help get through

    Ricky G

    James Ackerland I'll be singing AIC at work...alot of these younger kids have no idea who they are...so I feel I got to educate them some how

    Ryan Scarborough

    I sing AIC at work too but I work in a hospital. Them Bones always seems so inappropriate.

    Jersey Rebel

    Yeah, but I do it during lunch at school

  70. Louis Valenz Entertainment

    I really like this song. Definitely one of my favorites on this album.

    K M

    Louis Valenz Cinema Reviews agreed. Sludgey and dark.

  71. Leah Araiza

    This song haunts me

    D Sherry

    Layne's words cut right to the bone.

  72. Joe Vahkiin

    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

    K M

    Hash Bandicoot thank you for lyrics-so sludgey and dark. Pleasant

    Palmer Adams

    That username

    John DeF

    Joe Vahkiin thanks. Incredible lyrics.

    jazz Samaniego

    Thank you bro!

    Jeremy Hines

    I thought it was "some time to throw away" ?

  73. Minnie W

    My conception a joke or latest craze !

  74. skank hunt42

    Released on my birthday I was 7 years old and I still love them as much as I did 22 years ago

  75. HDM Reviews

    God, Self titled is probably my favorite by them! So many gems! "Head Creeps", "Again", and "Sludge Factory" just to name a few! The whole album is amazing! This, Dirt and Jar of Flies have to be my favorites of theirs

    grease hammer

    Tripod dude. The album is Tripod.

    Maximus_Crotchrocket

    It's nicknamed tripod, it's a self titled release

    PsychoticVendingMachine

    HDM Reviews I like mtv unplugged

    MetalHead Gamez

    For me...
    1.Facelift
    2. Dirt
    4. Jar Of Flies
    5. Self Titled
    6. SAP
    Overall i love all of their shit

    Aleksa Stamenkovic

    @grease hammer Its called Alice in Chains.I still sometimes refer to it as Tripod,but its not what its called.

  76. Odyssey Underground

    I feel like if Tool and AIC had a baby it would be this song

    August Weir

    GGALLIN1776 they are talented. I never find myself really wanting to hear tool. They try to do too much with their music

    SpiritualOpportunism

    @August Weir this is my reasoning exactly.

    Johnny

    @GGALLIN1776 you can't possibly be serious. Lateralus by itself is a masterpiece

    liveShit

    Never really liked Tool.

    M.L. Crow

    Tool's music doesn't work for me, can't listen to their music for too long (great musicians anyway ofc)

  77. Chris Pepitone

    Love the vacals.

    Jeremy Hines

    Chris Pepitone it just sounds scary as hell. Shit son I do too

    Scooter

    Welcome to Layne Staley

  78. Chad Murrell

    im tryin to get away!

    Matsen115

    Chad Murrell and yet i stick around

    Br&n

    Matsen115 so fall and crawl away!

    NEPA SRP

    Chad Murrell i DID get away,after yrs relapse bad,blackout nightly benzos n dope

  79. Blake

    My favorite from this album. Should've been a single rather than Grind

    GodNotAvailable

    Blake I feel like AIC has a bunch of songs that deserve to be singles but aren't. I'm surprised Sea of Sorrow was chosen as a single over It Ain't Like That back in the Facelift days.

    Mad Hatter

    Sea of Sorrow was chosen as a single because there was nothing like it at the time. It Ain't Like That didn't get good reviews, many said it was indistinguishable from Skid Row (LOL) and other bands of the era.

    CPW1109

    I love this song but I wouldn’t say that this should have been a single instead. Grind is awesome but this could have made a nice final single.

    keep core out of metal.

    The record industry wanted Jerry's songs to be the singles because it was said he couldn't remember any lyrics. Then I guess Jerry told Layne he's going to be singing more lead and laying quit the band.

    Jeff

    Keri M I Can't Remember and Bleed The Freak it was so raw but not choppy, Layne's best performance to me.

  80. John DeF

    Forgot how killer this album is

    ceci f

    My favorite. So sad sounding...jerry described the music as the sound of a band falling apart. But so good.

    HWL Hellbent

    Best AiC album, in my opinion.

    NothingBut70s80s90s -

    @HWL Hellbent Facelift in my opinion

    OneEye Man

    It's about my fav

    Bryan Mack

    OneEye Man it doesn’t get as much love as Dirt for some reason...probably not enough ‘’pop’’ sounding singles

  81. That Guitar Guy

    One of my favorites

    John DeF

    Jerry is so underrated. Check out him playing Barracuda with Gretchen Wilson live.

  82. Anthony Morales

    hell yeah 😏

    Trevor Groves

    mikeisagodd2012 holy shit Mike, what's up bud!?

    Zenith The Nihil

    Trevor Groves Hey how you been?!

    Avik Subedi

    Ambrajah what’s up man? lol

    DarkDragonSon

    Yo Avik! How's it going?

    Ashley S.

    DarkDragonSonK , Wassup dude!! How you doin? Haha....
