Jamie Lenman – The Six Fingered Hand lyrics
I remember when I was a kid the past century seemed special
All the decade were lined up just like a set of coloured pencils
The Fifties, The Sixties, The Seventies
Oh they all looked so exotic
I was certain the years yet to come would be just as iconic
Now they've been and gone, what the hell went wrong?
Where were all the amazing designs?
Fashions and movements and signs of the times?
Looking at pictures of 2001 makes it feel like we got nothing done
We're all afraid, dried up and useless
The six fingered hand crushes our throats
If you kidnapped a man from the nineties and brought him back to present day he'd probably die from the sheer disappointment, cos everything looks exactly the same
I always dreamt of musical happenings, like punk bands, two tone, one of these
The only movement that I got caught up in was CD's to MP3's
What a rip off!
Did we have all our ambition scared out of us or is it just that if all the stars are competition winners with fake tans and sob stories, why bother building rockets?
We didn't even try
We didn't even try
They had The Beatles, we had 'The Coldplay sound'
They had The Pythons, we had The IT Crowd
Burnt out and all for jack, I want my twenties back
Let down, beat up, caved in, I want my twenties back
Six fat fingers grip at my neck and make my heart beat slower
