"Lazarus" as written by Bridget St John and Traditional,....
I must be losing my mind
I keep on trying to find a way out
But it's ok you don't lock the door anymore

I, you know I never go out
And you know that I start to forget things
But it's ok they weren't essential anyway

I, and when I start to look back
I feel like I've spent my whole life just kicking round
And not getting in the way

And now, and maybe now I should change
Because I'm starting to lose all my faith
While those around me are beaten down each day.

    General CommentThis is a great song, I'm not really sure what the first two stanzas mean, but the last two are a rallying cry against indifference, a truly beautiful song

    General CommentMartin Carr said: "We moved into a flat in Muswell Hill with Tim and his girlfriend and spent nights smoking Nepalese Temple Balls and playing ‘Road Rash’. I wrote the lyrics there; I was trying to make sense of my life, I had decided that I was not going to shroud the lyrics in metaphors that only I understood anymore. I think Charles Bukowski may have been a big influence here."

    General CommentI think this song is about a person who lived a meaningless life that didn't have any effect on anyone or anything. I think the main character in the song decides to live a meaningful life
