"Tigers and Sharks" as written by Josh Franceschi, Chris Miller, Dan Flint, Matt Barnes and Max / Helyer....
All those dirty words that you said, did you mean it, did you now.
You're biting at the hand that feeds you, like a stray for some scraps.
Everybody you once knew has turned their backs.
And everyone that you once loved has sold you out.

Everyone I know, they faked it from the word go and I need to know why.
That everyone I love has been swimming with the sharks and I don't know why.

Does defeat leave a taste in your mouth, one that you could live without
Everyone that you once knew has turned their backs.
And everyone that you once loved has sold you out.

So tell me how does it feel?

    General Commenti think this is like a group of friends you've known for ages. and suddenly they gang up against you and change. and everything becomes saturated in tension and you don't know why they hate you all of a sudden. mmmm........

    General CommentThis is an incredible band, saw them live and they were amazing. :) If you've not got this album already, you must!
    As for the song's meaning, I think it can be applied to a fair few things, but specifically perhaps about people turning their backs on you as a result of fame - "And everyone that you once loved has sold you out".
