♬ SAM FENDER – Long Way Off

The new single from Sam Fender’s new album of 2021 is out.

LYRIC

I’ve seen enough of it
The sides are all cemented
Their incentives look the same
Are they vetted
In the same ways?
As the little guy puts blood and tears
Into pushing deadweight on the capital steps
Bleeding out for a caricature of a ’50s salesman
Hare checklist, tickin’ every box
Dead for what?Standing on the side, I never was the silent type
All the endless grey conundrums that are painted black and white
I heard a hundred million voices sound the same both left and right
We’re still a long way off
We’re still a long way offSome get along with it
They drag around from town to town
With a pretty lie that hoodwinked many of my loved ones
I owe it to my folks for giving me an understanding of a world
Shot my people down
The hungry and divided play into the hands of the man who put them there
So it goesStanding on the side, I never was the silent type
All the endless grey conundrums that are painted black and white
Heard a hundred million voices sound the same both left and right
We’re still a long way offWe’re still a long way off, oh, oh, oh-oh
We’re still a long way off, oh-oh, oh, oh, ohStanding on the side, I never was the silent type
All the endless grey conundrums that are painted black and white
Heard a hundred million voices sound the same both left and right
We’re still a long way offWe’re still a long way off, oh, oh, oh-oh
We’re still a long way off, oh-oh, oh, oh, oh

  1. Started like a nice chant but seriously held back by a lacklustre backtrack and terrible chorus. And, as with almost every recording today, it’s terribly mixed. Same level of loudness from the first second to the last, avoids any build-up of tension and relief, and drama. 😦

    Listen to it and forgetting it immediately …

    What’s wrong with young people of today? Do they have such low requirements?
