"Renegade Cavalcade" as written by and Tim Wheeler....
As I walk in the dirty rain
Acid seeping through my brain
I'm never gonna crack
There can be no turning back
Water runs down the windowpane
As she sucks on a sugarcane
You can see it in my face
Staring into outer space
We're renegades

We belong in the gutter singing
This song, all the bells are ringing
Hey, yeah
Hey, yeah

Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey

And it feels like a dirty dream
Like I'm walking to the guillotine
Feel the voodoo in my brain
Sipping on a hurricane

How's it feel to be a freak?
Oh so pale and so unique
To walk lonely in the rain
Unashamed that we are not the same

We belong in the gutter dreaming
Sing along, at the stars we're screaming
Hey, yeah
Hey, yeah

Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey

How does it feel to be alone?
Set apart from all the clones
We're the ones who can't be tamed
Who go against the grain
Alright

Hey, yeah
Hey, yeah
We belong in the gutter singing
This song, all the bells are ringing
Hey, yeah
Hey, yeah

Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey

How does it feel to be a renegade?
We're condemned for we are not the same
Visionaries in the cavalcade
No we can't be tamed

    General CommentThis is a fantastic catchy tune. No idea what it's about, but I don't really think it matters.

    General CommentWhat everyone else said basically - about standing out in a croud. I love the allusion to Oscar Wilde as well

    "We belong in the gutter dreaming
    Sing along, at the stars we're screaming"

    is a reference to the famous lines from Lady Windermere's Fan: "We are all in the gutter but some of us are looking at the stars." This was also used as the tagline for the film of Wilde's life starring Stephen Fry; probably because it's such a great quote about standing out from the croud.

    General Commenti agree with your comments and i love the song especially for it's lyrics, but i had a really weird experience at an ash show when 400 people were singing along to this song...i wasn't sure whether to believe that there are that many people who like to be different and be glad about it or feel that the lyrics don't mean as much if hundreds of people sing along to them.
