CHORUS: If they drop a bomb on us, we fucking deserve it,/ We know we got it coming, we fucking deserve it,/ They got a comfy set up, they'll try to preserve it./ We had the early warning, we can sit and observe it.

Sliding down guidelines, cradle to the grave,/ All the willing saviours see that we behave./ Everybody knows they're there, see them all around./ Lots of little people who'll put you in the ground. Well, take a burning issue and stuff it up your arse./ They've fucked you with a furrowed brow, shitting broken class,/ Marching down the 'dilly to demonstrate again,/ While the men who plan the holocaust are pissed out of their brain./ Brain of pasty people, who’ll bomb it all to fuck,/ You can be a victim or they'll let you try your luck,/ Pass it on to others, ship it down the line,/ Leave the world in ruins, you know we've got the time.

CHORUS

Cop-outs look for motives...Freudian analyst,/ Come on, Mr. Horror, what do you make of this?/ Won't find many people without their rationale,/ Any handy concept to hang upon the wall,/ Soldier got his enemy,/ Police have got the state,/ Family have got home sweet home,/ SS got red tape./ MP's got his duty,/ Priest has got his sin,/ Everybody finds a hole,/ To drop somebody in./Seeking out wisdom in the ironies of life,/ Weighing up subtleties, fiddling with the ties,/ No-one else decides for you, whether to or not,/ You make an easy target if you're running on the spot.

CHORUS

Someone's been training, flexing their muscles,/ Getting in practice, irrelevant tussles,/ Given a march, or a quiet Sunday demo,/ They wait till the state put the finger on you.

Peeping through a frown, your humanity in rags,/ Playing the loser till the sense of purpose sags,/ They can deal with heroes, watch the bleeders run,/It's only your head keeps the target from the gun,/ No-one else decides for you, whether to or not,/ You make an easy target, if you're running on the spot...

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

Holiday
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.
