He found all hands against his own
Found all eyes were looking down
And the sun had left and gone
All his friends could not be found

Don’t talk about
Don’t think about love
She not the one
You’re dreaming of
Don’t talk about it
Can’t live without it

You say you’re alone
He found all hands against his own

He found the sky it turned to grey
And the clouds start rolling in
Got no use for what they say
Got no use for where they been

Don’t talk about
Don’t think about love
She not the one
You’re dreaming of
Don’t talk about it
Can’t live without it

You say you’re alone
He found all hands against his own
You say you’re alone
He found all hands against his own
You say you’re alone
He found all hands against his own
You say you’re alone
He found all hands against his own

He found all hands against his own
No light from up above
Just a dark and lonely road
He found all hands against his own

    General Commentyou'd think this song would be depressing but it's so angsty that u can use it as stress relief - just listen to it and let all your tension and anger pour into the song and when the song finishes it takes all that negativity with it.

    sorry, didn't mean to go all new age there. won't happen again...

    General CommentI just heard the Black Keys for the first time this weekend and..wow. They're absolutely incredible. The guitar in their songs reminds me of legends like Pink Floyd, Carlos Santana and Jimmy Hendrix.

    Anyway, this song is consistent with the attitude of true blues. The skies turn grey and everyone is against him.

    General CommentThis is a great song. I don't remember where I first heard the Black Keys, but it was about 3 years ago, and I ordered Thickfreakness. I loved it, and I let my friend Robby borrow it, and then his mom went on a crazy Christian rampage, throwing all of his CDs away that she felt had anything on it that did not comply with her beliefs, including Thickfreakness. Anyway, I got into a lot of different music after that, but while searching for something new in Barnes and Noble a few weeks ago, I came across my old friends, The Black Keys. I bought Rubber Factory, and I haven't been able to listen to anything since.

    General CommentThis song has such an infectious groove to it, as soon as the drums kick in during the intro you just have to move!

    General CommentThis song has a great beat and I absolutely love Dan Auerbach's vocals in it. The Key's album Rubber Factory was actually titled this because they practiced and recorded the songs for the album in an abandoned factory that manufactured rubber!
