Screaming Trees - All I Know Lyrics




Bite the thorn that pierced the skin
Come back down to Earth again
The cold is creeping deep inside
Disconnect the telephone line

Got to get away, got to get away, get away
Got to get away before the Lord calls me to stay
All that I know, should've been, could've been mine

I killed the last way out of this
Persuaded by a deceitful kiss

Said you better stay, said you better stay, better stay
Said you better stay before it's all gone, gone away
All that I know, should've been, could've been mine
And for all that I know
Should've been, could've been mine

Bite the thorn that pierced the skin
Come back down to Earth again
The cold is creeping deep inside
Disconnect the telephone line

Got to get away, got to get away, get away
Got to get away before I lose my mind
Said you better stay, said you better stay, better stay
Said you better stay before it's all gone, gone away
All that I know, should've been, could've been mine
And for all that I know
Should've been, could've been mine
[repeat to fade]

Screaming Trees All I Know Comments
  1. Luke, I'm on TV

    Decent song. Sounds a bit like Tom Petty. But sorry to say this guy's voice is garbage

  2. berdboy

    what a great song..... i totally forgot about these guys!

  3. D.P. Ryan

    I was 18 in 1990 and remember nirvana, STP, Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, L7 but never heard of the screaming trees until around the late 90’s! If we’d had the internet back in the early 90’s the screaming trees would’ve been on everyone’s radar in the country!! They just weren’t marketed like the “BIG 3” Seattle bands of grunge!

  4. ÁUß Code II

    0:30 for a second I thought my connection had fucked up lmao.

  5. David Alpha

    Yeah. Good stuff, bad tech on playback.

  6. trufomak

    I love that catchy chorus.

  7. Jonathan Krueger

    Thank you

  8. olikat8

    Drive through downtown Seattle playing this song and wonder "How prolific was this song?"

  9. the ghost

    This always reminds me of someone I used to know. Great song, Brilliant band.

  10. kazegpan

    Still listening to this song today. Right now.

  11. A L

    Classic you probably forgot once existed on the radio.

  12. Wreckof theHesperas

    Pictures of mastic men

  13. Wreckof theHesperas

    Pictures of mastic men

  14. swampdonkey491

    Is this song about heroin?

  15. Lisa Maranto

    I have chills

  16. celia ayneto

    Bite the thorn that pierce the skin
    Come back down to earth again
    The cold is creeping deep inside
    You disconnect the telephone line
    Gotta get away
    Gotta get away
    Get away
    Gotta get away
    'Fore the Lord gonna make me stay
    All that I know
    Shoulda been
    Coulda been
    Mine
    I killed the last way out of this
    Persuaded by a deceitful kiss
    That said you better stay
    Said you better stay
    Better stay
    Said you better stay
    'fore it's all gone
    Gone away
    All that I know...(repeat)
    Bite the thorn that pierce the skin
    Come back down to earth again
    The cold is creeping deep inside
    You disconnect the telephone line
    Gotta get away
    'Fore I lose my mind
    Said you better stay
    'Fore it's all gone
    Gone away
    All that I know
    All that I know

    JeanGenie127

    TY Celia! dj

  17. MrSpinel

    Youtube needs to fix this video

  18. Josie Springfield

    GREAT SONG!!

  19. Sol Cobain

    Kinda reminds me of "Last Goodbye" by Jeff Buckley.

    BeetleJuice

    Thats what I thought to

    swampdonkey491

    Yes. Some broad played that song for me and I was all like "I love 90's rock!" but soon realized it wasn't this song.

  20. Jeremiah Bullfrog

    Fix the FRICKIN video VEVO! Reupload it please! How can this have been allowed to stay up for eight years? WTF!

  21. Austin Shanz

    my parents made me in the early 90s listening to the grunge music im blessed to grow up on this eras music

  22. Coordenação Solution Blindagem

    Banda do caralho

  23. robert Larson

    Why can't someone fix this fucking music video?! This is one of Screaming Trees best.......

    A Gamer Called Moses

    i know: wavy lines, blobs of green, it's just a typical crap video you know...
    with lanegan singing normally in the background, being innocent. it's probably the camera. And yes, they could.

    BadgerSpanner

    A Gamer Called Moses no mate, it's corrupted too, stops dead in the chorus.

    Ken Costlow

    Oh, OK -- I thought it was my connection.

    bucky468

    But the grunge-hating "Blame Nirvana For Killing Real Rock Music" 80's hair metal maniacs love the fact that this video is warped...and you're all pissed.

  24. Salt_shaker

    Very good song.

  25. Matthew Mouras

    Goddamn VEVO make your shit work! Pauses playing every 30 seconds or so. Way to ruin a classic.

  26. Iain Watson

    Wild thing....you make my heart sing

  27. Elif

    my fav in other songs ^^

  28. Freitag T15

    The most overlooked band from the 90s Washington alternative scene.

    Freitag T15

    What? They were by no stretch of the imagination “bad” live.

    swampdonkey491

    Yeah for sure. You just never heard anyone talk about these guys. But damn I sure remembered this song!

    A L

    @Marcus Morgan You sure about that?

    A L

    @Marcus Morgan Never mind that last comment. You're right.

    Marcus Morgan

    @A L yeah I am absolutely positive

  29. all ears99

    damn what a cool song....and what an amazing time to be alive during the early-mid90s music scene

    Calvin Butler

    I enjoyed so much good music from the 90's but years later, thanks to YouTube I see I also missed a lot of good music too

  30. all ears99

    "gotta get away BEFORE I LOSE MY MIND"

  31. all ears99

    so good...marks new solo albums are epic...he's got that voice that brings u into the guitar and the emotions he's portraying...simply put he's fucking pretty real...a true musician...dying breed sadly....rock needs some CPR

  32. Sammy Freeman

    classic... much love

  33. Sammy Freeman

    classic... much love

  34. Fone Star

    Hey YT can you play a video without glitching? HEY STUPID??

  35. Lorinaldo Gomes

    baita de uma banda uma das melhores do grunge ocara canta muito puta de um som da hora hoje só tem bandas lichos matarão o rock adoro está banda curto até hoje

    Deus Do Rock

    Lorinaldo Gomes eu também não aguento ver o rock aonde está, principalmente no brasil

    Lourinaldo Gomes Pereira

    @Deus Do Rock morreu cara faz tempo e foi nesta época do grunge infelizmente

    John Tanner

    Você não é o único

  36. Lord Maynard

    Does this glitch at about 32 seconds?

    Jeremiah Bullfrog

    There's more than one glitch during the video. What a disappointment. SMH.

    Wreckof theHesperas

    At least there's something here. Any other copies?

    ScRIPtoR IOIIO

    Yeah i was like What!... wait, just did it again

  37. dagui casteor

    Gran canción y espectacular banda, pero alguien tiene este video sin el error en el segundo 30?

  38. electroxnegative

    WILL YOU PLEASE FIX THE FUCKING VIDEO ALREADY.

  39. psychosem17

    Mark Lanegan is still very involved in lots of different projects.  

  40. Ryan Hurley

    The lead singer joined queens of the stone age, I think they should make another screaming trees album

  41. Ryan Cronin

    Funny the commercial works perfect but the video is FUCKED UP!

  42. Beansiethstroyer

    I don't understand vevo at all. they have the privilege to transfer videos from other youtube accounts without losing the statistics, but they can't edit a fucked up video. why upload a fuck up video with no intensions to develop it? I would rather watch the old 144p video with no glitches than watch this garbage in 4k

  43. Jeanise Dennemont

    Trop top jadoooooor merci

  44. Shawn Dempsey

    Best grunge band  by far

  45. NH Nate

    Intro is from Beatles "I am the Walrus", the rest is Status Quo "Pictures of Matchstick Men".

    SleepyHollowitz

    ok, thank you, now i know, please keep doing this

    zer0 95

    +Nat Defozzi and the riff after, that is totally radiohead's "just" or am i paranoid???

    HAYDS510

    Nat Defozzi i looked that pictures of matchstick men song up to see what you were saying, and DUDE I've been looking for that song for years! i heard it on a commercial and had no idea how to find it. as far as likeness, it's a 4 chord pop progression like this but they're not the same notes in the same order, it's a vague similarity. the only song this reminds me of is get away by Lenny Kravitz

    JeanGenie127

    NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! dj

  46. kimberly longman

    its her son*****

  47. kimberly longman

    ok this is not Kimberly longman..but its her so...dud you need to r- download this video...several parts of the song skips and pauses throughout the video...so just a lil advice...download a new version of this video. :p

  48. kimberly longman

    My ex told me in 2003 that if I desecrate his name in Crescent City he would kill me

  49. kimberly longman

    Passing by the grave yard I was in that grave yard lookng for my family history. The old is the one you have to watch out for It is eerie

  50. kimberly longman

    I need lyric video

  51. kimberly longman

    Also in Reno.

  52. kimberly longman

    Telephone line, Oh! My! God! People everywhere talking on their cell phones. and staring at me in the process.

  53. kimberly longman

    Thank GOD it is not November Rain.

  54. kimberly longman

    Oh! God. This fucking town ruined it. God DAMN! It. Now I am responsible.

  55. kimberly longman

    I am worried about it.

  56. wieg007

    fokin' vevo

  57. Drake Dufrene

    Can someone upload this video without the 5 skips in the song?????

  58. lurch321

    All that I know is that Vevo is BULLSHIT!

  59. Vikram Gomatam

    Always been a big fan of "THE SKIPPING TREES"

  60. realitychk69

    i really miss the trees.

  61. SACTICAL BAG

    I bet Grunge or Alternative was shock to Music Establishment , given the fact they were on a Formulaic Pop Trend and the LAST thing those Kid Chasing ,Moloch Worshipers ever want is original , creative music that challenges boundaries .
    Hence why we have some many pop " stars " throwing up the pyramid , Devils Horns , spreading their legs or pole dancing and to tell you how devious these people are - Christian Rapper turned down 2 Million Contract required to rap bout Sex , $ & Lucifer .

  62. guitargod987

    What's best is this is not even similar to rape me o.o If anything, it's most similar to Last Goodbye by Jeff Buckley. Even then, it's just a slight similarity in the opening riff. Jeez. Genius creative musicians are occasionally going to come to a similar conclusion when writing a song without ever even knowing it! It means nothing.

    Barry McCockiner

    guitargod987 Reminds me of head by Mark Lanegan ironically enough

    The Narrator

    I play and sing this and rape me. Same chords. Very similar.

  63. tablespeedjoe

    90' musics are my radar...

  64. jackcha964

    F**k the edit its so annoying...

  65. Luc ky

    plus, this chord progression is very common

  66. po18guy

    Commerce is supposed to improve the product. Every homemade upload I've heard is far better than this.

  67. sateristv

    Yeah what's up with the skipping? If this is a single edit then this the worst and most lazy single edit I've ever heard.

  68. Tabris Fleming

    Fuck you vevo get your damn videos straight then maybe we'd like you.

  69. dani3188

    fuck everything.......nothing like the grunge!!!!!!!

  70. Rhys Derry

    VEVO. Sony. Get a non-skipping version of this thx. Im sure you can if you actually try...
    One way to ruin a great song.

  71. duracles

    agree skipping sucks :(

  72. wardrich

    This video is brutal... You'd think that VEVO would be broadcasting the best quality video... what the fuck is this garbage?

  73. Marc

    STFU about VEVO
    You're watching Screaming Trees for free (and some free inconvenience)
    just enjoy the music ffs.
    Because this song is very very awesome!

  74. Norfolk Southern Lehigh Valley Railfan

    Hey fix this video it skipping piece of junk people who made this

  75. Leonardo Flores

    VEVO and YOUTUBE SPAMS... SUCKS MY DICK

  76. jay.0621

    VEVO can go to hell,as far as i'm concerned.

  77. envergadura

    I CAN'T BELIEVE HOW FECKIN VEVO RUINED THIS.

  78. lowryis

    well denying that this song is at least 'inspired' by "rape me" is just ignorance.

    swampdonkey491

    Lauri Israel Sure. Same chords. Different tempo and style. I actually didn't notice till you said something. I think just about anyone with a guitar played the exact same riff at one point and didn't know why or how.

  79. Bastian Valdés

    Vevo reqlo tienen el video terrible de cortado

  80. CesarProFx

    @grovest26 kids..... :facepalm:

  81. lowryis

    riff is from nirvana - rape me just with different chords

  82. ;askoefj

    YOU CANT CONTROL THE AVAILABILITY OF ART you fucking hitlerist corporation.

  83. custardo1

    How did the Very angry cat get on the page? Oh and Mark should be knighted

  84. Touchofred239

    Fuck you Vevo...

  85. klopapierpimperer

    fuck you vevo i just watch the other 50 videos from that song that are on youtube

  86. Nick Sullivan

  87. J BW

    Screw you vevo. Sincereley.

  88. DanQuijote777

    prefiero que quiten el video si no lo pondran como es. que verguenza les deberia dar

  89. ChapeuzinhoAUS

    What the FUCK is this skipping shit?

  90. Trent Smith

    What is this skipping shit? Makes me want to steer away from VEVO at any chance.

  91. ILLUMI NATI

    video is BADASS!

  92. WrathofGlyndwr Cymru

    VEVO ARE SHIT

  93. Hoàng Tử Ếch

    fuck you vevo shits!

  94. Kay N.

  95. Jerry Bennett
