"On The Chin" as written by and Jared Followill Matthew Followill....
There's this boy I know who's afraid of the ocean
Never quite found love he drank the love potion
I'll be on the chain smoking in the basement
Shattered like the windows

All my life I was born to lead
Worry not just leave me be
I'll abide till the end
I'll take it on the chin for you my friend

Find my bag of bones at the back of the station
Said make yourself at home
So I started day drinking
'Til I believe in time after seven, eight or nine
You fall yourself to pieces

All my life I was born to lead
Worry not just leave me be
I'll abide till the end
I'll take it on the chin for you my friend

All my life I was born to lead
Worry not just leave me be I'll abide till the end
I'll take it on the chin for you my friend

I'll take it on the chin for you my friend
I'll take it on the chin for you my friend

    General CommentI love this band. I love this, and every other, album they have ever released. They are ridiculously talented and their music is, quite simply, important in my life. That being said, the first two lines of lyrics in this song make me shudder -not in a good way!

    Also pretty sure some of these lyrics are incorrect. E.g. think it should be "all my life I was born to leave"
