"Away From Here" as written by Vidal Davis, Andre Harris, Jason P. D. Boyd, Al-baseer Hakeem Holly, Tarik Trotter and Joel Louis Witherspoon....
I'm so sick, sick, sick and tired
Of working just to be retired
I don't want to get that far
I don't want your company car
Promotions ain't my thing
Name badges are not interesting
It's much easier for me see
To stay at home with Richard and Judy

Awayaway oh oh oh away from here...

Awayaway oh oh oh away from here

Awayaway oh oh oh away from here

Awayaway oh oh oh away from here


I'm fed up of early mornings
Wake up calls are getting boring round here
Feet dragging on the pavement
The same people with the same arrangement
Irony can be quite funny
You making other people money
My working day has just begun
Its not exactly what I would call fun

I want to wake up in the afternoon
With daytime TV and my favourite tune
'Cause it is much easier for me see
To stay at home with Richard and Judy

Awayaway oh oh oh away from here.....

Away away away away from

Saturday is your only highlight
When you go out and live the highlife
Meeting up with other people
Your interaction with the weak and feable
Atleast when all is said and done
You wouldn't be the only one
To be a slave to the modern wage
Your crappy weekend is your only escape

I want to wake up in the afternoon
With daytime TV and my favourite tune
'Cause it is much easier for me
To stay at home with Richard and Judy

Awayaway oh oh oh away from here.....
Away away away away from here

    General CommentGreat tune, pretty obvious meaning, and a damn catchy chorus. Bought their album last week and its packed with fantastic tunes that will have you singing along but also agreeing with his cynicism of the modern world.

    Song itself paints a rather bleak view of modern Britain - despite how shite it can be, you have to work to survive. Funny that these guys are only 18/19, doubt they'll have been working for long!

    General CommentI agree with you CALLEY_roadtojoy. It sounds so very pronounced and strong. I also like the whole "awayaway..."-thing, it really reminds me of the soundtrack to one of my favourite movies as a kid. Oh the memories. ;P
