"Not Up To You" as written by Kelly Jones, Stuart Cable and Richard Mark Jones....
Salt grips the road awaits his lift again
Street orange glow shades the odds against
One more sip, a shoe, a miss, a shaving nick
One extra kiss, who's to know whatever!

[Chorus]
Not up to me,
Not up to you
Not up to me,
Not up to you

Swings don't swing, the parks been dead for years
How do you know the last swing
Weren't your last for good, hard book on freaks fresh summer
Peach creased magazine, sugar chocolate treat, who's to know whatever!

[Chorus]

The street's so long where she lost her pocket purse
Kept the last picture of the man she committed first
Cracked windscreen rain, french murder play
Junk take away, tired street parades
Who's to know whatever!
Whatever!

[Chorus]

Not up to anything we do
Not up to me,
Not up to, oh, you
Oh you, oh you
It's not up to you
It's not up to you
It's not up to you
It's not up to you
It's not up to you

    General Commenti hav to say I LOVE this song. For me this song is about never knowing whats going to happen in your life, youl never know whats around the next corner until your there. The lyrics "How do you know the last swing weren't your last for good" and "whos to know, watever, not upto me, not upto you" I think this is just saying that in the end we dont really have full control over our lives and we cnt say anything is certain, beacause we dont know for sure what will happen tomorrow. A sad but realistic veiw, I cld really relate with this song
