"Easy Target" as written by Robin Harry Hawkins, James Martyn Frost, Iwan Huw Griffiths and Alexander Gregor Pennie....
Are you really talking about us?
Are you really talking about us?

With anonymity, as your security,
and prince authority,
you could be dangerous,
so tap your fingers, to a beat I can't fight, (I can't fight)
and watch the sparks fly out the press

Beware! Your friends have betrayed you,
Beware! We never knew you,
Beware! Your friends have betrayed you,
Beware, beware...


Are you really talking about us?
If you keep tapping your fingers, you will wear them to the bone,
Are you really talking about us? (Are you really talking about)
If you keep tapping your fingers, you will wear them to the bone.

In your defence I was an easy target,
not every (????) enough with their mistakes to be ironic
you dotted the i's and crossed the t's,
but didn't keep your friends as close as your enemies.
What matter's in the end,
Is that you're writing in the right tense,
Can you spell objectivity? (spell)
spell objectivity? (spell objectivity)


Beware! Your friends have betrayed you,
Beware! We never knew you,
Beware! Your friends have betrayed you,
Beware, beware...

Are you really talking about us? (Are you really talking about)
If you keep tapping your fingers, you will wear them to the bone,
Are you really talking about us? (Are you really talking about us?)

Yes? Yes? Yes? (????? Pennie shouting)

Beware! Your friends have betrayed you,
Beware! We never knew you,
Beware! Your friends have betrayed you,
Beware, beware...

Are you really talking about us? (Are you really talking about)
If you keep tapping your fingers, you will wear them to the bone,
Are you really talking about us? (Are you really talking about)
If you keep tapping your fingers, you will wear them to the bone.

Yes? Yes? Yes? (????? Pennie shouting)

    General CommentOne of their best b sides :)
    It seems like its about losing a friend, maybe one who they would ever expect to betray them "Are you really talking about us?" This seems to be the general theme of the song.
