"Forget My Name" as written by James Buchanan Galley, Samuel Forrest, David Samuel Jones and Martin Cohen....
You are all the same
You're so polite
You can't explain

And me, I'm getting sick
I'm sick of it
I call it quits

Because really, falling down is easy
No one else will help me
Won't you carry on dear
Carry on without me

Please just forget my name
Forget my face, you're all the same
The human race

Someone else can take my place
And leave me here
Without a trace

You're left and right
You're rich and poor
You're black and white

And me, I'm barely here
I'm barely there
Not anywhere

Because maybe, everybody's happy
Laughing and ecstatic
Don't forget to carry on without me

Please, forget my name
Forget my face
You're all the same
The human race

Someone else
Can take my place
And leave me here
Without a trace

So you can sell me
Send me down the river
You'll find someone who's better
Won't you carry on dear
On without me, please

Forget my name
Forget my face
You're all the same
The human race

Someone else
Can take my place
And leave me here
Without a trace
Without a trace

    General Commenti saw them do this song a few weeks ago and it was one of the best on the night - will probably be the best song on the album when it comes out - these are a good band with a lot going for them

    General CommentI think it's "no one else will have me"
    and "sail me down the river"

    General CommentIt's 'sell me down the river'...according to the cd booklet...though 'sail' makes more sense so who knows!

    This song sounds slightly bitter and sarcastic to me.
    "You're all the same, the human race," says it all really.
