"Hung Up" as written by and Paul John Weller....
Hidden in the back seat of my head
Some place I can't remember where
I found it just by coincidence
An' now I'm all hung up again
Just like a soldier from the past
Who won't be told it's over yet
Refusing to put down his gun
He's gotta hurt someone
He'll keep on fighting 'til his war is won

Waiting for the moment
Keep on looking for a sign

Extraordinary, trying to cease the war inside
Hidden in the back seat of my head
Some place I can't remember where
I found it just by coincidence
An' now I'm all hung up again

    General CommentI think this is about Paul Weller losing his mind. He refuses to give up on the idea he has of his identity from the past (that he lost "just by coincidence") and goes hunting it down, as he closes himself off from everyone and everything around him.

    He's got to hurt someone - probably the fact that his wife couldn't understand the complete transformation in his personality. He mentions this in other songs, like - You do something to me and All the pictures on the wall (we don't talk that much at all the further out I seem to stray) - to name two.

    I found it just by coincidence refers to the fact that there is no reason for him to be down. He just can't find it - but he'll never lie to himself, he knows he feels like shit - so he'll keep on hunting, looking for the signs (of who he actually his, his internal happiness), that will cease his war inside.
