"Bring It On Down" as written by and Noel Gallagher....
What was that sound ringing around your brain?
Today was just a blur, you've got a head like a ghost train
What was that sound ringing around your brain?
You're here on your own who you gonna find to blame?

You're the outcast - you're the underclass
But you don't care - because you're living fast

You're the un-invited guest who stays 'till the end
I know you've got a problem that the devil sends
You think they're talking 'bout you but you don't know who
I'll be scraping your life from the sole of my shoe tonight.

Bring it on down. Bring it down for me
Your head's in a fish tank
Your body and your mind can't breath

Bring it on down. Bring it down for me
Your head's in a fish tank
Your body and your mind can't breath

You're the outcast - you're the underclass
But you don't care - because you're living fast

You're the un-invited guest who stays 'till the end
I know you've got a problem that the devil sends
You think they're talking 'bout you but you don't know who
I'll be scraping their lives from the sole of my shoe tonight

    General Commenti don't think the lyrics are meaningless at all. beansch has it right, it's about the working class. very rebellious feel to this song. the album was great because oasis was "real," they weren't a bunch of art students pretending to be working class like blur were-- they sang about the things they knew about.

    "What was that sound ringing around your brain
    Today was just a blur, you've got a head like a ghost train
    What was that sound ringing around your brain
    You're here on your own who you gonna find to blame"
    a description of what working class life is like.

    "You're the outcast
    You're the underclass"
    self-explanatory. the working class it the outcast class because the upper class or the middle class do not care about them.
    "But you don't care
    Because you're living fast"
    self-explanatory as well, they're living it up anyways and not giving a shit about anything else.

    "You're the uninvited guest who stays 'till the end"
    uninvited guest-- someone who is unwanted and not cared about. the upper/middle class does not care about the lower class. you in this verse = the underclass.
    "I know you've got a problem that the devil sends"
    again, you is the underclass of the verse. the devil sent a problem for you. the devil is the upper/middle class.

    "You think they're talking 'bout you but you don't know who
    I'll be scraping your life from the soul of my shoe tonight"
    you think the upper/middle class are talking about taking you out and you do know who it is exactly, but you know when the fight happens (tonight) that you will be scraping their remains from the sole of your shoe. btw, should be SOLE, not soul.

    "Bring it on down, bring it down for me
    Your head's in a fish tank
    Your body and your mind can't breathe"
    a taunting verse for the upper/middle class.

    General CommentI'd relate the lyrics to taking too much cocaine. The last line sums it up with style. The mix of buzzin elation and paranoia. A class above 'The Streets' attempts at conveyin this, and I think The Streets are decent.

    General CommentParticularly meaningless lyrics IMO, however its still very much a rock n roll song that gives you the oasis attitude/swagger.
    cool as ice

    General CommentThis song doesn't really start until 2:48. From then on it's the definitive guitar/drum solo.

    General CommentI only came to appreciate this song recently and because they were going to play it in the show. I must say I like it a lot right now, it's Oasis back in 1994, young and rebel, feeling outcasted and looked down on by the upper society.
