"Charge" as written by Guy Edward John Garvey, Craig Lee Potter, Mark Potter, Peter James Turner and Richard Barry Jupp....
I am electric with a bottle in me
Got a bottle in me
And glory be, these fuckers are ignoring me
I'm from another century

I am a preacher when I've got it on me
And I've got it on me
And glory be these fuckers are ignoring me
We never learn from history

Hey, I am the boy who loved her so in every song
And I design that little mystery on your tongue
I've broken jaws protecting laws to keep you free
I've made your day so take a seat by me

I am an old tree, gonna' talk my jaw free
Someone come and get me
Another night beside myself would finish me
Give us G&T and sympathy

I am the die hard with an empty dance card propping up a young bar
I'm pouring oil in double time upon the troubled rising tide inside of me
Upon my history

Hey, I am the boy who loved her so in every song
And I design that little mystery on your tongue
I've broken jaws protecting laws to keep you free
I've made your day so take a seat by me

Hey
Hey
Hey
Hey

Hey, I am the boy who loved her so in every song
And I design that little mystery on your tongue
I've broken jaws protecting laws to keep you free
I've made your day so take a seat by me

    General CommentI think it's about old men and generation gaps, sounds heavy and sad.

    Song MeaningAn old and angry man sitting a pub drinking hard. Young people are all around. He is invisible to them and he resents this. Don't they know who he is and the life he has experienced. He has stories to tell so they should sit with him and give him the time of day.

    General CommentI think it's about an ex military man; not only does the title bear reference to military maneuvers, but other terms such as "double time" (a part of drill, moving at twice the pace you would normally, as you can probably tell), and the otherwise violent language in the song, eg "I've broken jaws" (I realise that the next line may make it sound like a policeman but hold on a second) and especially the line "to keep you/free" suggests a man who went to war- I'm not sure which war as the line "I'm from another century" can be taken literally or figuratively so not sure there. Furthermore, "We never learn from history" is especially true when taken in the context of wars don't you think? Just my ideas but I agree in general with what everyone else has said
