Blow Me Away is a song from the Halo 2 Vol. 1 soundtrack (Track 2) by the post-grunge band Breaking Benjamin. The song was written specifically for the soundtrack, and was later featured on the band's 2004 EP So Cold (Track 2). The song also earned moderate success on music charts though is mainly known for it's appearance in Halo 2, where it is still considered as the top song in the soundtrack by many Halo fans.

This track plays during the battle between the Brutes, Hunters, and the Elites in the Mausoleum of the Arbiter at the end of level Gravemind, though it plays with the lyrics almost muted. If you listen closely, you can hear the lyrics proving that it is not an instrumental version. It will play on a loop until all enemies on both sides are dead. Interestingly, the intro of the song, with its characteristic bell chime, can also be heard during the tunnel portions of the level Outskirts.

Lyrics[edit]

Lyrics from Breaking Benjamin's MySpace page.

[Verse 1]
They fall in line,
One at a time.
Ready to play
(I can't see them anyway)
No time to lose
We've got to move
Steady the helm
(I am losing sight again)


[Bridge]
Fire your guns,
It's time to run,
Blow me away.
(I will stay, In the mess I made)
After the fall,
We'll shake it off,
Show me the way.


[Chorus]
Only the strongest will survive,
Lead me to Heaven when we die,
I am the shadow on the wall,
I'll be the one to save us all.


[Verse 2]
There's nothing left,
So save your breath,
Lying in wait.
(Caught inside this tidal wave)
Your cover's blown,
Nowhere to go,
Holding your fate.
(loaded, I will walk alone)


[Bridge]
Fire your guns,
It's time to run,
Blow me away.
(I will stay, In the mess I made)
After the fall,
We'll shake it off,
Show me the way.


[Chorus]
Only the strongest will survive,
Lead me to Heaven when we die,
I am the shadow on the wall,
I'll be the one to save us all.


Wanting it back
(Don't fight me, God!)


(Here I come! (Held out for about 2 seconds))


(Die! (Held out for about 5 seconds))


[Chorus]
Only the strongest will survive,
Lead me to Heaven when we die,
I am the shadow on the wall,
I'll be the one to save us all.


Save us all!
