"It Means Nothing" as written by and Kelly Jones....
Did we lose ourselves again?
Do we take in what's been said?
Do we take the time to be
All the things we said we'd be
And we bury heads in sand
But my future's in my hands
It means nothing
It means nothing

You can find yourself a God
Believe in which one you want
'Cause they love you all the same
They just go by different names
When we fly our flag today
Are you proud or just ashamed?
It means nothing
It means nothing

[Chorus]
It means nothing
It means nothing
It means nothing
If I haven't got you
If I haven't got you
If I haven't got you
If I haven't got you

And the sun sets in the sky
You're the apple of my eye
If the bomb goes off again
In my brain or on the train
I hope that I'm with you
'Cause I wouldn't know what to do
It means nothing
It means nothing

[Chorus]

If I haven't got you
You, you
Oh,

(It means nothing)
(It means nothing)
(It means nothing)
(It means nothing)
(It means nothing)
(It means nothing)
(It means nothing)
(It means nothing)

    General CommentKelly said last night at Manchester that they wrote it during the time of the London 7/7 bombings but more about the attitudes of people and life rather then based on the situation.

    Brilliant song though

    General CommentKelly has explained this at numerous live gigs as just being about something that stops you in your tracks and makes you realize what you've got - Namely the 7/7 bombings

    General Commentdoesnt the 2nd verse go

    You can find yourself a god
    Believe in which one you want
    Cause they love you all the same
    They just go by different names

    that makes more sense 2 me

    still, good song anyway

    General Commentyeah i thought it was about a person who lost someone in the london 7/7 bombings and is just saying how pointless there life seems without them. Those lyrics are so incorrect its laughable (hahahaha)... they need to be corrected pronto

    General CommentHe said at the Cardiff gig that it was about anyone specific who lost their life. And that when 7/7 happened it gave him the neesh to carry this song on.
    And in the words of him from last night "This song is just about giving everyone a fucking break, because sometimes don't you think all we want in life is peace"
    Beautiful

    General Comment"Did we lose ourselves again?
    Did we take in what’s been said?
    Did we take the time to be,
    all the things we said we’d be?
    So we bury hopes in sand
    And my future’s in my hands"

    This part perfectly describes the mess I'm in right now. I'm burying all hopes in the sand because it just seems so pointless right now. Brilliant song by a brilliant band!
