The song is probably the band's best known song, reaching the #1 spot on the Mainstream and Modern charts. This soon propelled the single to mainstream success, reaching the #5 spot on the Billboard Hot 100.
"Blurry" is about a breakup, and cowardice. The song was primarily written about how Wes Scantlin (lead singer) misses his son, Jordan.
It is best known for its refrain, from which it derived its secondary name: "Can you take it all away?/Can you take it all away?/When you shoved it in my face/This pain you gave to me".
trivia: the song was also used in the menu trailer for ace combat 5 the unsung war and was also in the soundtrack album.
