Extensive Definition

"Blurry" was the second single off the album Come Clean by post-grunge band Puddle of Mudd.
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".

Music Video

The video for the song shows Scantlin playing with his son interspersed with the band playing in a garage, and towards the end as the song picks up, it shows Jordan driving off in the back seat with a man and a woman in the front seat (presumably Jordan's mother and stepfather), as Wes watches the car sadly. The video was directed by Limp Bizkit frontman, Fred Durst. The music video can be seen here.Jordan Scantlin lives in Kansas City, Missouri. He goes to the park hill school district.
