Away from the Numbers
The Jam Lyrics


Things are getting just too cozy for me
And I see people as they see me
Gonna break away and gain control
You free your mind
You free your soul
I was the type who knocked at old men
(History's easy)
Who together at tables sit and drink beer
(Somewhere is really)
Then I saw that I was really the same
So this link's breaking away from the chain

Away from the numbers
Away from the numbers
Is where I'm gonna be
Away from the numbers
Away from the numbers
Is where I am free

Away from the numbers (away from the numbers)
Away from the numbers
Is where I'm gonna be

I was sick and tired of my little niche
Was gonna break away and find where life is

And all those fools I thought were my friends
(Coaching is easy)
They now stare at me and don't see a thing
(Reality's so hard)
'Till their life is over and they start to moan
How they never had the chance to make good

Away from the numbers
Away from the numbers
Is where I'm gonna be
Away from the numbers (away from the numbers)
Away from the numbers
Is where I am free
Is where I am free
Is where I'm gonna be
Is reality

Reality's so hard, reality's so hard
Reality's so hard, reality's so hard
Reality's so hard, reality's so hard

So this link's breaking away from the chain
Away from the numbers
Away from the numbers
Is where I'm gonna be
Away from the numbers
Away from the numbers
Is where I am free
I was sick and tired of my little niche
Well gonna break away and find where life is
And all those fools I thought were my friends
(coaching is easy)
They now stare at me and don't see a thing
(reality's so hard)
Till their life is over and they start to moan
How they never had the chance to make good
Away from the numbers
Away from the numbers
Is where I'm gonna be
Away from the numbers
(away from the numbers)
Away from the numbers
Is where I am free
Is where I am free
Is where I'm gonna be
Is reality
Reality's so hard, reality's so hard...

I remember being a kid on a plane in the fucking bathroom flying somewhere. There were no fucking iPods. I had this tune in my brain while I looked at my 19 year old self in the mirror...lyrics memorized , riffs ....and I swore I wouldn't become what I hated in adults. WELL, reality is so hard...but I've done ok. God bless Paul Weller, the Jam, and all of you who I don't know, but love for even being here. Take care.
