"THE LEFT SIDE" as written by Adam James Nutter, Robert Michael Harvey, Stuart Coleman and Philip Jordan....
my hands are before me
the principles of life like a forest
to reach out and touch it
the spines are in my hands and i'm bleeding
now get up people and show you want it
cos i'm not sure you do
get up people and show you want it
cos i'm not sure you do
i'm not, i'm not gonna just sit here and let this go to waste
watching the clock tick on my life
oh no
this time
this time's gonna be different
cos i know what i want
listing the people i'm taking down
this is what i'm fighting for
come over to the left side
we got something for ya
my mind it weaves a tangled web
now get up people and show you want it
cos i'm not sure you do
get up people and show you want it
cos i'm not sure you do
i'm not, i'm not gonna just sit here and let this go to waste
watching the clock tick on my life
oh no
this time
this time's gonna be different
cos i know what i want
listing the people i'm taking down
this is what i'm fighting for

    General CommentI fully agree with the comment above. :) Although "Fire", "Drugs", "The Last One", and "Get Through It" aren't bad either.

    General CommentGiven Rob's anti-war/pro-independence stances (Bleeding from Within, Freedom Fighters etc) + he also wore a NATO: Now a Terrorist Organisation t-shirt at the Bordeaux festival I seen, I've always suspected this as a call to arms to join the left-wing. As the time of this album - 2007-2008 - seen a pretty thorough discrediting of Thatcherism/Reaganomics/neoliberalism that had been in ascendancy since the 80's - and yet the only people who seemed to be benefiting from it were the far-right. It seems like the song is an appeal to left-wingers to organise and show they're actually still out there, cos he's still fighting.
