Bring it!

I am the underdog
I am one of many faces
in a room full of people
I wouldn't trade any places

You think that I look like
That I couldn't squash playdough
But inside this body
I'm a MuthaVolcano

Drop the lyric

You all think I'm small & fragile
But I'm agile & I'll wipe your smile in a quick while
Take a closer look at the book not it's cover & brother
Hows what you discover?

I got what I got
Eye of the tiger
Heart of the lion
A will tough as iron

It's common sense to give yourself room
cuz' in the end
I'm running free, babe!
don't need to be a 2 bit hero
displayed in cleo
cuz' I got it inside here ya'll, HERE YA'LL

I am the underdog
I am one of many faces
In a room full of people
I wouldn't trade any places

the originator
the new innovator
why recreate ya
I'll be me that's my nature

And in my mind I can see things
that no- one else will ever ever dream of
I like to think in my own little way
I'm not insane
cuz I listen to the voices in my head


I am the underdog, I got the young blood
I am the underdog, I got the young blood
I got the young blood
I got the young blood
I got the young blood

    I think this song is all about having a perception of how your seen by others but knowing how strong you actually are in yourself. One of the best Aussie bands this is a classic song.

Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,
