"Fat Lip" as written by Robert Plant, Robert Blunt and Jezz Woodroffe....
I can't believe it
It happens each day
It's ill-conceived
Just throw it away
To watch the waiting time, slipping away
It won't be long now
I hold the moment
The hour is sublime
It's hard believing
Dancing with time

To watch the waiting time slipping away
It won't be long now
Down at the landing when the boats come in
People stand in line
Close by the water where the fishes swim

'Round and 'round to pass the time
But you know it's gonna get there
Around and around it's gonna spin
Out at the airport where the planes come in
People buzzing like flies
Out at the airport where the planes come in

See the hours go flashing by
But you know it's gonna get there
Around and around it's gonna spin
Down at the station where the trains come in
Never make it on time
Down at the station where the trains come in

See my friends all walk the line
But you know they're gonna get there
Around and around they're gonna spin
View it all with suspicion,
Wiew it all and despise
View it all with suspicion
Wiew it all with my eyes

    General CommentThis is a song that I would add in response to the question "if you could only listen to five songs for the rest of your life, what would they be?".

    My InterpretationI see this song about observing life as a traveler. Traveling around the world seeing so many forms of transportation and so many people. Traveling and traveling. So much commotion. It's like he's sitting still watching everyone buzz about in fast motion to go where? To what end? People consume and consume for what reason? "It's ill-conceived, Just throw it away". So much waste in the way we run the world. You can go fast and be busy or you can chill, time is still "slipping away". In the end we're all going to die, we're "gonna get there".
