"Back in the Game" as written by and Jamie Alexander Treays....
Take your brother down to the sea,
Have two's on a cigarette.
Young sons mozy it happily
Learn facts on the soviet
A crowded room that holds just three, takes four do you connect?
And all this shit means fuck all to me.
Long livers in the sunset.

So crazy Billy Jay Jones, robs banks just for the shits
Man alone giggling so stoned, pick up the phone
Cause that money I leant you said was just a loan
You're danger prone, with too much gel and a whiff of dad's cologne
Leave me alone,
Cause now you come down and you just go and lower the tone

[Chorus]
But after about ten clear minutes, he was back in the game.
Thought he was done man, thought he was finished,
But he's back up again
And after about ten clear minutes, he was back in the game.
Thought he was done man, thought he was finished,
But he's back up again.

With a tainted brain of intoxication purple heart smartarse
Got on the transistor, said that you missed her,
Looking for selectors and found no one better than you.
With bother boy blues, take up the old
Tick up the avenues. And talk like you do what you do,
Takin up time, but now it comes down and it?s for who the bell tolls.


[Chorus]
And after about ten clear minutes, he was back in the game.
Thought he was done man, thought he was finished,
But he's back up again
And after about ten clear minutes, he was back in the game.
Thought he was done man, thought he was finished,
But he's back up again.

    General Commentso far ive heard 9 songs by jamie t. ive actually loved them all.
    this guy hasnt even released an album and hes probly in my top 10 artists of any genre and any time.

    and this song is is amzing aswell. from what ive heard he writes mostly about his experiences and people hes known.
    and probably somtimes jus writes what comes to his head, like jus writes what fits the music - thats what i do quite a lot.

    General CommentCorrections: (im pretty sure on these I live in London and im used to the accent.) - Based on the album version.....

    Take your brother down to the sea,
    Have a two’s on a cigarette.
    Young sons mozy it happily
    Learn facts on the soviet
    A crowded room that fits just three, takes four do you connect?
    All this shit means fuck all to me.
    Long livers in the subsect.

    So crazy Billy Jay Jones, he robs banks just for the shits
    Man alone giggling so stoned, pick up the phone
    Cos that money I leant you said was just a loan
    You’re danger prone, with too much gel and a whiff thats dad’s cologne
    Leave me alone,
    Cos now you come down and you just go and lower the tone

    Chorus
    And after about ten dear minutes, he was back in the game.
    Thought he was done man, thought he was finished,
    But he’s back up again
    And after about ten dear minutes, he was back in the game.
    Thought he was done man, thought he was finished,
    But he’s back up again.

    A tainted brain of intoxication purple heart smartarse
    Got on a transistor, said that you missed her,
    Looking for selectors and found no one better than you.
    With bother boy blues, pick up the old
    tick up the avenues. And talk like you do what you do,
    Takin up time, but now it comes down and it’s for who the bell tolls.


    Chorus
    And after about ten dear minutes, he was back in the game.
    Thought he was done man, thought he was finished,
    But he’s back up again
    And after about ten dear minutes, he was back in the game.
    Thought he was done man, thought he was finished,
    But he’s back up again.

    General CommentA correction to mine: the end of the second verse is: 'Kickin up time' not 'Takin up time'.
