The first Fannies album on a new label, and things are still gloriously the same...
Freedom. Horrible, horrible freedom. Cloistered in the depths of Creation's roster since 1991, he untidy collapse of Alan McGee's great musical looked like Teenage Fanclub's apocalypse. Indulged to explore their uncommercial whimes for so many years, the proto-Travis ravens were left flapping their wings nervously around the wreckage of their Tower of London. As they sing on...

I used to feel fine, you were to be mine
I need direction, to take me to you
I've asked the sunshine, shadowed the skyline
The morning sun please open up my eyes
What I see is the same world I know you're seeing
My dreams are real until I realise
Realising's a slow fade from thought to being
Should I just keep rolling all over this town
Among the buildings and amid the sound?
Feels like I've been waiting this whole season through
Motivation is fading too
You were on the straight and narrow
You were going round the bend
And looking for a friend
Even when the world is grey I go where I wanna go, I'm okay
Rainy skies don't cloud my mind
I do what I wanna do, do what I wanna do
I don't know anything but I say what I wanna say
Feels good to be here again
In the cool air and the driving rain
In the first light that morning brings
High five to future things
Its been playin' on my mind
I don't want to waste your time
And the thought of you is tearing me apart
Don't know what I want to do
My laziness'll see me through
Happiness is all I need
The truth is never guaranteed
I should get out of this seat
Feel the world beneath my feet
Strive to see more of the sun
Try to change what I've become
Give in to me now I want you there are satellites in heaven I know the past comes back to haunt you watching everything you do This is a battle that you're losing now you're looking for a way out and life was never more confusing of your accidental life [Chorus] you can stay inside but you're out of time and now you see life as a mission But now your life is on the line tell me what you're going through You can't reason in your condition maybe I know what your missing All your problems are distractions and you're looking for a way out still waiting for the main attraction of your accidental life [Repeat chorus twice]
I can't find my way home
It's always there when I'm gone
Stuck in time since I moved on
If I never see you again
you will stay in my mind [x2]
