"Away From The Numbers" as written by and Paul John Weller....
Things are getting just too cozy for me
And I see people as they see me
Gonna break away and gain control
You free your mind
You free your soul
I was the type who knocked at old men
(History's easy)
Who together at tables sit and drink beer
(Somewhere is really)
Then I saw that I was really the same
So this link's breaking away from the chain

Away from the numbers
Away from the numbers
Is where I'm gonna be
Away from the numbers
Away from the numbers
Is where I am free

Away from the numbers (away from the numbers)
Away from the numbers
Is where I'm gonna be

I was sick and tired of my little niche
Was gonna break away and find where life is

And all those fools I thought were my friends
(Coaching is easy)
They now stare at me and don't see a thing
(Reality's so hard)
'Till their life is over and they start to moan
How they never had the chance to make good

Away from the numbers
Away from the numbers
Is where I'm gonna be
Away from the numbers (away from the numbers)
Away from the numbers
Is where I am free
Is where I am free
Is where I'm gonna be
Is reality

Reality's so hard, reality's so hard
Reality's so hard, reality's so hard
Reality's so hard, reality's so hard

    General CommentPaul Weller hated the popular afternoon tv programme "countdown" especially the "numbers" game, hence Away from the numbers! Simple but effective.Genius!
