"Out Of Nowhere" as written by and Timothy Wanstall Carey Willetts....
7 out of 21 knocked down
Now only 14 left to go
I didn't know that I was next in line
But it is not as if I've had much time
Jet lag all around me voices calling
Saying please don't go away
Last thing I remember drifting down this tunnel
Was bright light ahead

Out of nowhere
It came and him me on the head
Out of nowhere
I saw it over there
Before it hit you on the head
I saw it over there

Out of nowhere
It came and him me on the head
Out of nowhere
I saw it over there
Before it hit you on the head
I saw it over there

7 out of 21 knocked down
Now only 14 left to go
I didn't know that I was next in line
But it is not as if I've had much time
Jet lag all around me voices calling
Saying please don't go away
Last thing I remember drifting down this tunnel
Was bright light ahead

Then when I came around
Somebody helped me to my feet
And said I can't believe you're still alive
I've seen 20 other people in the last half an hour
Who've been hit right between the eyes
Seems that somebody some where's on a mission to protect you
Knowing that you should have survived
Hurray, hurray, hurray
We're still alive

Out of nowhere
It came and him me on the head
Out of nowhere
I saw it over there
Before it hit you on the head
I saw it over there

It came and him me on the head
Out of nowhere
I saw it over there
Before it hit you on the head
I saw it over there

It came and him me on the head
Out of nowhere
I saw it over there
Before it hit you on the head
I saw it over there
Out of nowhere

    General CommentI *totally* do NOT get this song. It seems like it's a song about being hit on the head by someone. Or something. It's so strange...

    General CommentGreat song!

    Before is saw these lyrics I thought that it said:

    jet lag all around me

    rather than

    jet black all around me

    cos that would of made more sense because i thought that he was in an airport and there was a terroist attack.

    But probably wrong. Who cares! Great song!

    General Commentit's about god watching over the song writer even though the odds were against him

    'it seems that somebody somewhere's on a mission to protect ya cos there's no way that you should've survived'

    i don't know if it's a real life experience though

    General Commentthere could potentially be a reference to war. there is the feeling that he is running from an attack, while many of his mates have been killed he is escaping through a tunnel and once he is in the clear he has a mind revitalizing epiphany: he could of just as easily been killed but is alive

    General CommentI reckon It's about some kinda ball game - Cricket or something
    7 people out, 14 left to bowl
    "I didn't know that i was next in line" Didn't know he was on the field next
    "Out of nowhere it came and hit me on the head" They bat the ball and it hits the chappy and knocks him out
    "Hit right between the eyes" suggests he was hit by the ball and hes not in some kind of war

    My OpinionHere's what I've got out of this song.

    There are 21 people put in line for execution. Just when the next turn comes to him, a third party arrives, neutralizes the executors and some of them even hits the remaining 14 people in the head with the back of their rifle.

    I don't know why, but the song makes sense to me this way :)
