"Walking Backwards" as written by and David Craig Barry Hyde....
Sometimes it feels like we are walking backwards up a mountain
Sometimes it feels like we don't know which way to go
We made a promise to keep our mouths shut
Stay out of the way
That promise went too far
That promise went too far away

[Chorus]
Walking backwards with nothing to say
Walking backwards, backwards to get out of the way

Sometimes it feels like we are stabbing in the dark with nothing to say
But when the lights go out, see no hear no speak no evil
Sometimes you're thinking that it's fine
At least we're both alive
Life's what you make it but trouble is never far
Trouble is never far away

[Chorus]

Sometimes it feels like we've woken up in an empty room
All the doors are shut
I can see your breath and feel your fingertips
I reach for the light but I can't find the switch
What happens if we fall between all the tiny gaps that we exist within?
That was then
This is now
We will find our legs and keep moving around

[Chorus: x4]

To get out of the way
To get out of the way
To get out of the way

Walking backwards
Walking backwards
Walking backwards
To get out of the way

    General CommentGreat song this - i'm sure i read somewhere it was to do with their old label and how they felt trapped by them and then about getting dropped by them...i think the lyrics do fit that

    "We made a promise to keep our mouths shut
    Stay out of the way
    That promise went too far"

    Then towards the end:

    "That was then
    This is now
    We will find our legs and keep moving around" - basically they've escaped it and moved on and are now getting on much better

    General Commentis it just me or do all the bands who talk about their record companies seem to depict them as these debilitating faceless enemys?
