"Unsatisfied" as written by and James/forrest Galley....
Ten out of ten for a race already run
Bleeding the world cause they can't figure out what's wrong
So come back down from your daydream high
Lost for words when you sympathize
There's a million ways to believe you tried
Well I'm unsatisfied


Just sick and tired of all I've tried

So long since someone lit up your life
So long since you heard from the world outside
Tell yourself its a part of the plan
Knock you low to find out where you stand
There's a million ways to believe you can
Well I'm unsatisfied


Just sick and tired of all I've tried

You should look where you're going
Or where you're gonna hide
You should be feeling something
Of another life


So why'd you want to hide
Every little lie
Keeps it inside

    General CommentI think this song is about being unimpressed with your own achievements - knowing you can do better - although you can easily lie to yourself under the pretence that what you have achieved is good.

    Could we get some lyrics for, I dunno, Ilana song or something?

    These guys live are just...
    just go and see them, okay?

    General CommentI agree with Blaize; its about wishing you could do everything better, just being secretly unhappy with everything you do despite the results. This is my favourite NBA song.

    General CommentIt's about being tired of trying to get something you're really good at, and about being unsatisfied with life.

    General CommentThis is pretty much how i feel right now. I think a lot more people can relate to this song than any of paris hiltons or any other wannabes who call themselves singers. I know i can say that without offending any1 because no Nine Black Alps fan would ever likethem. ROCK ON!

    General CommentThis song is amazing. It's like you can feel Sam's pain through the song. The way he sings it is just so emotional, like there's something not right in his life or something missing. He doesn't know what it is and he doesn't want to be stuck in a dream world and no matter what he does he's unsatisfied with the world. I've seen Nine Black Alps live twice already this year in Nottingham and at Leeds Festival and I'm off to see them for a third time in Norwich, they're just so amazing.

    General CommentBlaize?

    Matt, is that you?

    I suppose it's unlikely you'll frequent this page 3 years after you originally posted but oh well.

    Love this song, and lyrically everyone's hit the nail on the head... unhappy with your own achievements or what you're doing. Wanting more but not sure where it'll come from.
