Wash It All Away Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I've given up on society, up on my family,
Up on your social disease.
I've given up on the industry, up on democracy,
Done with all your hypocrisy.

All of the chaos and all of the lies - I hate it!

    I am a recovering addict. when I was still using I found myself in a deep black hole of depression. I would often listen to this song and felt I needed somebody to save me... Or somebody to be my friend... listening to this song Sober with a different mindset I relate it to my higher power getting me up off the ground, washing away my sins and saving me. since I've surrendered to God, I'm empowered now to fight for my life , accept I've been given a second chance and have saved myself.

    In a world where suffering and pain has become the prevalent action, hope has been lost within the unit of families, media and world in general. Where the world seems to be against individuals and for just everyone seeking benefit from individuals for their own gain, they sit within their own hatred of the world: finding their own inner strength to find a form of defiance but it isn't enough. They are waiting for someone to come along wash away the corruption that binds everyone with the monotonous parasitic nature as described within the single phrase of 'I'm wasting here WITH everyone to WASH IT ALL AWAY'. Not to just wash away politics, but to take away what drags us down. What takes away from us as individuals. Who or whatever makes us less than what we are as we struggle. We have inner strength to fight against what makes us weaker, but while we fight with the turmoil of the actions of society, of the people of who drag us down, we fight with the inevitable that brings us down and are hoping for the individuals that come about and allow us the be freed from the fight, if even for the moment to allow a foothold to strengthen the grasp that is the individual. For what is right and what is allowed to stand against a machine that tears us down.

    I am a fifteen-year-old girl, and I believe that this song refers to all the bad in the world, because we have so much bad in this one little world. I have many times agreed with this song because I have felt the exact same way. We ARE all wasting here, waiting for fo SOMEBODY to wash it all away.

    I believe this song is about washing away the filth of the world! Rapists , killers basically all bad people in general when he says “I’ve given up on society” I’ve given up on my family refers to an inviduals family disowning that person for whatever reason.Also not trusting the government. And given up on the industry prob refers to music Industry as a whole with shady people at every turn trying to manipulate you into something for their benefit even if it is against your ethical belief.

    i know just where all that hate and anger comes from, he was most likely badly abused as a child betrayed by his family. his drinking isn't the problem it's a side of effect

    A person who has given up on society and is asking someone to destroy it by means of mass extinction event like global flooding, possibly from divine intervention or by cosmic collision with a meteor.

    I believe this song is about a man who has given up on everything " I've given up on society, up on my family " and he is waiting for the right person to come Wash away all the pain and bad memories hence the chorus " I'm waiting here for anyone to Wash It All Away "

    I believe Wash it all Away is about a man wanting to kill himself because of all the hipocracy in the world
