"Raoul" as written by Robin Harry Hawkins, James Martyn Frost, Iwan Huw Griffiths and Alexander Gregor Pennie....
Our ambition got cast aside
Thrown away when the batterys died
And you start to comprimise
Just to get to the other side

But its always for the best
And if your not convinced
Then you'll get left behind
I lost interest

It doesnt seem like you mean it
I dont believe that you believe it
And it feels like running with your eyes closed
If you forget what your supposed to be

It doesnt seem like you mean it
I dont believe that you believe it
And it feels like running with your eyes closed
If you forget what your supposed to be

(Lets go see Raoul) Lets make a stand
(Lets go see Raoul) For all the ones who
(Lets go see Raoul) Used to give a damn
(Lets go see Raoul)working all the time

Our ambitions got cast aside
Thrown away when the batterys died
And you start to comprimise
Just to get to the other side

It doesnt seem like you mean it
I dont believe that you believe it
And it feels like running with your eyes closed
If you forget what your supposed to be

It doesnt seem like you mean it
I dont believe that you believe it
And it feels like running with your eyes closed
If you forget what your supposed to be

Lets go see Raoul
Lets go see Raoul
Lets go see Raoul
Lets go see Raoul

(Lets go see Raoul) Lets go see Raoul
(Lets go see Raoul) Lets go see Raoul
(Lets go see Raoul) Lets go see Raoul
(Lets go lets go) Lets go see Raoul

It doesnt seem like you mean it
I dont believe that you believe it
And it feels like running with your eyes closed
If you forget what your supposed to be

It doesnt seem like you mean it
I dont believe that you believe it
And it feels like running with your eyes closed
If you forget what your supposed to be

(Lets go back to work) Lets go back to work x8

    General CommentI defy you guys. The band say this is a song about lost ambitions, as embodied by Raoul, who lost his dreams and started working in a sandwich shop. It's all in the first and second stanzas.

    General Commentits well good :-D lol
    good band and maybe its just me atm but
    "And it feels like running with your eyes closed"
    could be about love - or falling on love, that enjoying it but out of control feel. or anything else like that.
    i like the idea of the guy above ^ makes sense

    General Commentthis is a really beautiful song by them.

    the
    'And it feels like running with your eyes closed
    If you forget what you're supposed to be'
    is one of my favourite bits, its maybe about getting caught up and losing yourself, then the realisation of this, you're going blind, running, that its fast and you lose control. probably quite dangerous if you cant see where you're headed either.
    but bascily its unknown territory when you lose your core.

    other than that it kindov feels like a union song:
    'Let's go see Raoul
    Working over time'
    as if raoul has repressed all these people and they want to fight him.

    'And you'll start to compromise
    Just to get to the other side'
    this kinda ties in with the losing yourself. in order to fit in or avoid confrontation they just do what they're told and begin to change.

    ack. this is getting too long. its whatever it is.
