Well I
Been thinkin' 'bout the future
Too young to pretend
It's such a waste
To always look behind you
You should be looking straight ahead

Yeah
I'm gonna have to move on
Before we meet again
Yeah
It's hard
If you had of only seen

At ten thirty-four
Flinders street station
I'm looking down the tracks
A uniform man
Asking am I pee'd off
Why would I want to be that?

Yeah
I'm gonna have to move on
Before we meet again
Yeah
It's hard
If you had of only seen

Take control
And don't be afraid of me
'Cause every once in a while
I think about if ya gonna
Get yourself together
You should be happy just to be alive
And just because
You just don't feel like comin' home
Don't mean that you'll never arrive

Yeah
I'm gonna have to move on
Before we meet again
Yeah
It's hard
If you had of only seen

Take control
And don't be afraid of me.

    General CommentIt's to Nic and Chris Cesters late dad

    The brothers were worrying about their lives and were they were going with their music ("well i've been thinking about the future, but I'm too young to pretend'), then their dad died ("Gonna have to move on before we meet again"). In the 2nd verse they are thinking about life ("10.34: Flinders Street Station I'm lookin' down the tracks") and in the last verse they realise "Cause every once in a while
    You think about if your gonna get yourself together
    You should be happy just to be alive."

    The brothers always sing it together at shows.

    General Commenti agree, i think it sounds kinda like oasis for some reason... but at the same time it sounds like "wild horses" by the stones...

    General CommentAfter living in Melbourne, Australia for 5 months, i love the line about flinders st. station. And it was bugging me when i first heard about, and i'm not sure if this is it, but it kinda reminds me of "only god knows why" by kid rock. just a little bit

    General CommentCool song. I think it seems to basically be talking about how you need to stop obsessing about the past and look toward the future. The train station metaphor works really well for this too.
