"Stuck In A Rut" as written by Daniel Francis Hawkins, Francis Gilles Poullain-patterson, Edwin James Graham and Justin David Hawkins....
Kiss my arse, kiss my arse goodbye
Propelled by a carriage of aluminum am I
No more to rot in this sty
Turn my back on this shit-hole in the blink of an eye

Gimme the keys
You ain't gonna see me for dust
The Barnby Bends ain't gonna get the better of me
Gimme the keys
To any old bucket of rust
The Acle Straights are gonna take me to where I want to be

Stuck in a rut
Stuck in a rut for eternity
Stuck in a rut
Stuck in a rut for eternity

The road is long and the lights are bright
Just ''cause you've lived here all your life doesn't make it alright
And the Golden Mile is paved with shite
Don't mind telling you I'm sick of walking up and down it every single fucking night

Gimme the keys
You ain't gonna see me for dust
The Barnby Bends ain't gonna get the better of me
Gimme the keys
To any old bucket of rust
The Acle Straights are gonna take me to where I want to be

Stuck in a rut
Stuck in a rut for eternity
Stuck in a rut
Stuck in a rut for eternity

Stuck in a rut
Stuck in a rut for eternity
Stuck in a rut
Stuck in a rut for eternity

    General CommentI heard it was about Heroin and Drugs in general wich does make sense once you read it.
    Though that Lowestof thing is quite logical too

    General CommentI love the lyrics to this lol they have awesome lyrics. Its like some people would say that they arent art but i think its just alternative art. You can write music any way you want ya know? And Wolfmother doesnt like t' darkness cause they dont take their music seriously... dont get me wrong i love wolfmother, but you can write music any way you want.... especially in the rock n' roll business

    My InterpretationI think this song is about growing up and wanting a better life. Wanting to see the world and to experience freedom.

    You can say it was like saying good bye to childhood life and entering Rock Stardom. Because that is what happened after their first album was released right?
