I can't get what I want
I'm a failure
Nothing seems to work out quite
The way I planned
I can't express the way I feel
The way I feel
Without fucking up something else
Nothing seems to work out right
And I can feel it building
Failure

    General CommentThis is the wrong Embrace. The good one from D.C. in the 80's. How isn't there a section for their lyrics yet?

    General CommentI am ashamed to say, provided this is the Yorkshire Embrace and not the American band, that I have never heard this song before in my life.

    General Commentyeah, i agree with northstar, (which is also a good band)... that THIS embrace is waay better.

    Embrace (the US band) was part of a movement called Revolution Summer (summer of 1985-1986), which began as a result of the unnecesary violence at shows in DC as a result of hardcore being tainted by brainless jocks; the very people the bands were singing against. Ian MacKaye (Minor Threat, Teen Idles, Fugazi, etc) and Guy Picciotto (Rites of Spring, Fugazi, One Last Wish, Happy Go Licky) were instrumental in bringing about Revolution Summer. They slowed down the tempos in their songs and wrote less volatile lyrics that still held all of the power and passion of their former bands' lyrics.
