The only song on the record that was written from start to finish in one go. I guess it's something I've needed to get off my chest for a long time. You can decide for yourselves what it's about...


You’re wasting your time
If you’re trying to lean on me
Assuming control
Of everything that you can touch
And you can see
But I won’t be told
And I’m not gonna roll over so easily

This is not the way to live
When there’s no concession
That you can give

It must be so hard to live with it every day
When fear is the only card that you can play
The richer your heart
The deeper the real love you can display

These are not the things to do
This is not about us
It’s all about you

Earning our trust as a friend
You always had time to pretend
This is a point to attend
We’ll always find out in the end

There was a man
He had a plan
To keep it so real
Sold me the dream
For all it seemed
A pretty good deal

We’d stand or fall
As one and all
Least that’s how it first seemed
He sold us lies
Tangled up in his schemes


from You are the Big Bang, released February 19, 2016
