FAR BEHIND

In a 1994 interview with Playgirl, Candlebox frontman Kevin Martin stated that it was inspired by two friends who overdosed on heroin and “represents the loss of love between friends and having to be left with the feeling of emptiness.” He elaborated in a 2008 interview:
“I wrote ‘Far Behind’ for Andy Wood. I was a huge Malfunkshun fan and a huge Mother Love Bone fan and I got to know Andy early on in his career when I was working in a shoe store with Susan Silver who was managing Mother Love Bone, Soundgarden, and Alice in Chains.

FAR BEHIND~~~~Now maybe
I didn’t mean to treat you bad
But I did anyway
Now maybe
Some would say your life was sad
But you lived it anyway
And so maybe
Your friends they stand around
They watch you crumble
As you fall onto the ground
And then someday
Your friends they stand beside
As you were flying
Oh you were flying oh so high
But then some day people look at you
For what they call their own
They watch you suffer
Yeah, they hear you calling home
And then some day we could take our time
To brush the leaves aside
So you can reach us
Hey, but you left me far behind
Now maybe
I didn’t mean to treat you oh so bad
But I did it anyway
Now say, but maybe some would say
You’re left with what you had
But you couldn’t share the pain
No, no, no
Couldn’t share the pain
They watch you suffer, mmm hmmm
Now maybe
I could have made my own mistakes
But I live with what I’ve known
And then maybe
We might share in something great
But won’t you look at where we’ve grown?
Won’t you look at where we’ve gone?
But then someday comes
Tomorrow holds a sense of what I fear for you
In my mind
As you trip the final line
And that cold day when you lost control
Shame you left my life so soon
You should have told me
Hey, but you left me far behind
Now maybe
I didn’t meant to treat you oh so bad
Oh, but I did anyway
Now maybe
Some would say you’re left with what you had
Oh, but you couldn’t share the pain
No, no, no
(Solo)
But maybe
I didn’t mean to treat you oh so bad
Oh, but I did anyway
No maybe
Some would say you’re left with what you had
But you couldn’t share the pain
I said, now times have changed your friends
Have come and watch you crumble to the ground
They watch you suffer
Yeah, they hold you down
Hold you down
Maybe brother, maybe love
I didn’t mean to treat you bad
But you left me far behind
Left me far behind
Left me far behind
