"Half Right" as written by Steven P. Smith and Neil Gust....
Well you shouldn't talk to yourself
While I picture somebody else
Someone who looks like
What I look like
Would you say that
The one of your dreams
Got in you and ripped out the seams
That's what I'd say
He was a sucker for your double dose
Mother fucker
Turned white as a ghost
Don't you say hi
With your broken sink for a face
In a head that just takes up space
He's not half right

It's already half past
And it won't last

I was sticking up for my friend
When there's nothing much to defend
It's a lost fight
Cause when I talk to you on the phone
Well it's just like being alone
It's not half right
It's not half right

    General Commentthe original is by heatmiser - not half right.
    on their album futures, JEW made a reference to a heatmiser song with KILL 'like your favourite heatmiser song goes, it's just like being alone'. and what do you know, on their latest EP they did a cover of the heatmiser song they were referring to.
    I wouldn't say this is an awful heatmiser cover, coz if you listen to both songs carefully, they're pretty much the same, the only subtle difference is the vocals. But hey if you don't like JEW then fair enough, but i think they did a pretty good cover of that song.

    General CommentI'd rather hear this version that the Heatmiser one, cause that one is kinda boring. Great cover by JEW.
