"Chicken On A Bone" as written by Grant Nicholas, Taka Hirose and Jon Lee....
Follow the river
Wallow in silver
Voices draw nearer
I'm counting out the day's wage

Let it be known, lettin' it out
Let it be known, lettin' it out

See it so near, it seems so far
It's when you're here, It's where you are
See it so clear

Making my head spin
Watching the world sing
Holding me under
Try and get a hold son

Let it be known, lettin' it out
Let it be known, lettin' it out

See it so near, it seems so far
It's when you're here, it's where you are
See it so clear

Pale and wanton
Dreams forgotten
No use crying
I feel like chicken on a bone, chicken on a bone

See it so near, it seems so far
It's when you're here, it's where you are
See it so clear

Lettin' it out
Oh, let it be known, let it be known
Lettin' it out, Lettin' it out, Lettin' it out
Let it be known, let it be known
Lettin' it out, Lettin' it out, Lettin' it out
Hello, hello, hello..

Let it be known, let it be known
Lettin' it out, Lettin' it out, Lettin' it out
Let it be known, let it be known
Lettin' it out, Lettin' it out, Lettin' it out

    General CommentGrant did mention once 'Chicken on a bone' is an analogy to how he felt when he moved from Wales to London, England...all of a sudden being thrown in the deep end and seeing all he aimed to achieve and strive to (possibly musically) but it was seeming so far away to be achieved, he was in Big place with opportunity and possibly felt disorientated.

    To me its when you desire something so much, you have the vision, you cant hold it in, you want to speak about, let it out so maybe you will be heard and a path will open you can follow to reach that dream and make it reality, like anything you aim to achieve it seems so near in your vission and attainable but it seems so far in the sense that hard work takes time and effort and those dreams arent always a pleasant ride, tears can be shed, emotions run high and you can feel lost but that vission stays.

    General CommentI think this is an amazing example of a great 90s song. It definitely has it all.
    I'm just absolutely in love with the chorus though and the effects used in it. This was/is certainly underrated!
