"Old" as written by and Kevin Rowland/james Paterson....
Hell Bent Useless viod
Beat your faverote paranoid
Wash these hands for a change
One step closer by the way

Feel alone
Allways
Nothing Less
Get it all away
Get it all away

Sew me up this jacket straight
Eat the worlds left only place
Someones sharp, so i havent smoked all day
Doctors an excuse to live

Feel alone
Allways
Nothing Less
Get it all away
Get it all away

everyday give yourself away...
Coming undone gives you away
GIVES YOU AWAY!

I get around
Allways
Nothing Less
Get it all away
Get it all away
Get it all away
Get it all away

    General Commentokay this was the only bush song that had no comments and its been driving me nuts, so i figured i would comment on a song i have never heard. I think that this song is a b-side, or on an X-games soundtrack or something, anyways by readin it, i have no idea what the hell it means. I bad at that kinda stuff. sounds like he is getting really sick and tired of someone. . .

    General Commentok i posted it ill say somthing, if any wants to hear a good Bush song Download this or go searching for the limited number of copies of the X-games soundtrack 1.
    Its good, its OLD bush no pun intended. I couldn't tell you what it means. I just know that everyone should hear it. ITs possibly the most catchy Bush song, minus machine head, that ive ever heard. Hopefully somone more insightful thatn me will say somthing cool about it. Its fun, like just makes you wanna have fun.

    General CommentI think this song should have been added near the end of Razorblade Suitcase. Certainly would have brought the speed back up. the album is too lop-sided as it is...fast songs in the begining, all the slow songs near the end. the adrenaline just drops too much. still love the album though ;).

    General CommentThis song should have opened Razorblade Suitcase. It would have been a perfect tone setter as opposed to Personal Holloway. It ended up a B-Side to Greedy Fly but it is Bush's catchiest song. The song makes no sense. There are no official lyrics to it. I don't think they intended it to mean anything or they half assed recorded it and it ended up being a really cool tune. In fact I would disagree with half the lyrics posted here. I thought it was "Doctor ain't it good to live?!"
