"Army Dub" as written by and Ian Thomas/blackburn Ball....
From the bed to the car
Let us stick to you now and then
Move on, move on

Out of school, into home
Let us swallow you whole
Or just hold on, hold on

We were close
Army dub
Not as quick as you run, you run
You run, you run

Brand new shirt
Knackered shoes
Coffee made, office blues
And then run on, run on

Well, who's gonna take it like this?
No way
You are, you are
You are, you are, you are

Who's gonna take it like this?
No way
You are, you are
You are, you are, you are

The one-armed man
The one-armed man
The one-armed man

The one-armed man
The one-armed man
The one-armed man

Who's gonna take it like this?
No way
Who's gonna take it like this?
No way

From the bed, in the car
Let us shower your heart
And then move on, move on

It's the one fatal flaw
Let us swallow you all, you all
You all, you all

We were close
Army dub
Not as quick as you run, you run
You run, you run

Who's gonna take it like this?
No way
Who's gonna take it like this?
No way
I said, you are, you are
You are, you are, you are

Who's gonna take it like this?
No way
I said, you are, you are
You are, you are, you are

(Who's gonna take it like this?
No way
Who's gonna take it like this?
No way
Who's gonna take it like this?
No way)

You are, you are
You are, you are, you are

    General CommentA Gomez rocker! It rocks with an almost military cadence, which perhaps explains the title.

    The first stanza is about how they envision us using their music... in the car, in the bedside stereo, and they hope some of their music really connects sometimes.

    A stanza about kids coming home from school, with a chance to lose themselves in Gomezland for a bit.

    A stanza about all the fuss that is done to get ready for work, only to get the blues about it once we arrive only to keeping running around with a million things to do.

    Well who is going to take it like this? You are!!! Brilliant. It's a jab at all of those 9 to fiver's who complain about the drudgery of work, only to do nothing about it. By taking a shot at these people, it's also a motivational kick in the butt to actually do something about it other than complain! With the army beat, it brings on a more revolutionary tone.

    Great tune again, it'll have you tapping your feet and changing your life.

    General CommentYeah... It's about going out and being you... Enjoying all aspects of life and enjoying it.
    How can Gomez get away with making a trance song? I mean really... Can you think of a less suited band than Gomez?

    General CommentThat's hardly fair - That's kind of how all the album "in our gun" pans out. It's easily my favourite Gomez Album, it takes some of the drum and bass-y elements of the first two albums (which were there for sure) and steps them up, and I really like the slips from bluesy rock to drum and bass, especially on In Our Gun, but it works damn well on Ruff Stuff too.
