"Mucky Fingers" as written by and Gallagher....
I know you think you deserve an explanation on the meanings of life.
But what you think that you heard slipped away out the back of your mind.
You'll get your mucky fingers burned.
You get your truth from the lies you were learned.
And all your plastic believers will leave us and they won't return.

And when you look in that mirror
And you're tying up your buttons and bows.
And as you face your disease you can squeeze into the Emporer's Clothes.
You found your god in a paper bag, you get your history from the Union Jack.
And all your brothers and sisters are gone and they won't come back.

I'm fed up with life in the City,
All the phoneys have blown my mind.
When I'm gone, you look like you'd miss me,
So come along with me - but don't ask why,
'Cause it's all mine,
It's all mine.
It's all mine.
It's all mine.

[Harmonica Solo]

'Cause it's all mine
It's all mine
It's all mine
It's all mine

[Harmonica Solo 2]

    General CommentThis song rocks...plain and simple. Didn't like it that much first listen but it grew on me...which was a good sign as most Oasis songs that I love usually take a few listens for me to really love (Supersonic, Acquiese, Rock 'n' Roll Star) so it's a promising return to form :)

    General CommentHe's proved once again he has a knack for a master tune. Seems like hes moaning about life in London here?

    General CommentThis is Oasis' worst song. No doubt. Compared to this, The Swamp Song is a masterpiece...

    General CommentBit of a blatent rip off of I'm Beginning To See The Light by The Velvet Underground but frankly I just don't care. A brilliant song from a brilliant album.

    General CommentThe album certainly is quite good, and this is one of the best tracks. I'd bashed it before, but nonetheless I guess "Don't Believe The Truth" is a grower. For me, the songs are best when you're actually listening to them.

    As for the meaning... well, it's apparently modeled after Bob Dylan, so probably it has no actual meaning, but the word "phonies" suggests "Catcher In The Rye," and certain other bits help it out, but it's too upbeat. So it has no meaning.
