Oasis - Be Here Now: Wikipedia Album Entry
Be Here Now is the third studio album by English rock band Oasis. Released in August 1997 the album was highly anticipated by both music critics and fans as a result of the band's previous worldwide successes with their 1994 debut album Definitely Maybe and its 1995 follow up (What's the Story) Morning Glory?. The album's pre-release build up led to considerable hype within both the music and mainstream press. At that point, Oasis were at the height of their fame, and Be Here Now became the United Kingdom's fastest selling album to date, selling over 420,000 units on the first day of release, and over one million within two weeks. As of 2008, the album has sold eight million copies worldwide.
Oasis' management company Ignition were aware of the dangers of overexposure, and before its release sought to control the media's access to the album. Ignition's campaign included limiting pre-release radio airplay, and requesting that journalists sign gag agreements. These tactics resulted in the alienation of members of both the music and mainstream media, as well as many industry personnel connected with the band. Ignition's attempts to limit pre-release access served to fuel large scale speculation and publicity within the British music scene.
The music magazine "Q" said that "Be Here Now" sounds like "Cocaine set to music"

Cold and frosty morning there's not a lot to say
About the things caught in my mind
And as the day was dawning my plane flew away
With all the things caught in my mind
Say somethin' shout it from the roof tops off your head
Make it sort of mean somethin' make me understand or I'll forget
The people here on life's beaches
They wish upon the wave that hide the sand
It's a bit early in the midnight hour for me
To go through all the things that I want to be
I don't believe in everything I see
Y'know I'm blind so why d'you disagree?
Wash your face in the morning sun
Flash your pan at the song that I'm singing
Touch down bass living on the run
Make no sweat at the hole that you're digging
Said, let's go
One, two, three, four
If I may be so bold that I just say somethin'
Come and make me my day
The clouds around your soul
Don't gather there for nothin'
They're trying hard to put me in my place
And that is why I've gotta keep running
The future is mine and it's no disgrace
'Cause in the end the past means nothing
An extraordinary guy
Can never have an ordinary day
He might live a long goodbye
But that is not for me to say
Everybody knows but no one's saying nothing
It was a sound so very loud that no one can hear
I got something in my shoes, it's keeping me from walking
Down the long and winding road and back home to you
Step off the train all alone at dawn
Back into the hole where I was born
The sun in the sky never raised an eye to me
