"Return The Gift" as written by and Dave/burnham Allen....
Head away from the years
You're on the price list
Head away from the years
You're on the price list
Head away from the years
You're on the price list

Everything will stop your new changing
The grid will be filled
Go to Scotland no obligation
We'll send you an invitation
We'll send you an inside shower
We'll send you an inside shower

It's on the market
You're on the price list
It's on the market
You're on the price list
It's on the market
You're on the price list

In the spring who can say?
Please send me evenings and weekends
Shared by with the weeks
Please send me evenings and weekends [Repeats]

    General CommentI've always thought this is about the lack of free time (hence "Please send me evenings and weekends").

    General CommentTo me, although they lyrics are a bit opaque, this is a song about the existential crisis faced by workers. "It's on the market, you're on the price list" talks about how as workers, we essentially have to sell ourselves and our labour on the open market. I've always undertood the "please send me evenings and weekends" as a worker who desperately wants time off from the daily grind of selling his / her labour, and when one considers how this has always been a central issue with union organizing (ie the fight for the weekend and the 8 hour day) as well as GOF's generally Marxist inclinations, this interpretation makes more sense. Just my take. Great song though, that rhythm section is absolutely bangin here.
