Let's just stop,
Drop everything,
(forget each other's names) forget each other's names,
And just walk away.

Turn around and head in different directions,
Like we never, it's like we never knew each other at all.
We said what we feel, then we stop ourselves,
And just walk away.
Never looking back,
Loving every second of it,
We just walk away.

This is probably the best,
Not to mention the worst idea,
That I have ever had.

Ignoring what we've felt,
Overlooking what we've done,
No awkward silences, no hiding any truths
Ignoring what we've felt,
Overlooking what we've done,
What do you say?

This is probably the best,
Not to mention the worst idea,
That I have ever had.
We say what we feel,
Then we stop ourselves,
And just walk away.
Never looking back,
Loving every second of it,
We just walk away.

Let's just stop,
Drop everything,
Forget each other's names,
Can we please just walk away?
It could be... It could be...
Like we never knew each other at all.

Walk away!
All egos aside, what do you say?
All egos aside, what do you say?

Ignoring what we've felt,
Overlooking what we've done,
No awkward silences, no hiding any truths
Ignoring what we've felt,
Overlooking what we've done,
What do you say?

We say what we feel,
Then we stop ourselves,
And just walk away.
Never looking back,
Loving every second of it,
We just walk away.

    I agree that its about him wanting to leave the band.
    Which is depressing by the way.
    But if it were lika a guy and a girl,
    I think that he wants her back,
    and they are still forced to see eachother,
    and she just wants to forget about all they had.
    sadsad.

    it's about a guy breaking up with his girlfriend, and just forgetting what they had, and forgetting that they even knew eachother, its almost like he's saying to her "no hard feelings let's just forget everything & you never have to see me again"

    The song is about when they first got signed to Equal Vision. Then, Chip and Crosby left the band.

    Craig, being furious about this, wrote this song. It's about him wanting to leave Chiodos himself.

    It's about letting go of a dearest dearest one. Throwing out all the things that they've been through though they still both love each other

    this can be about him and the band. It can also be about a couple that is breaking up, he's saying that they can forget each other and all the good times and never see each other again. he's saying that doing this can be the smartest thing they've ever done but it can be the worst because of the chemistry that the two had.
