It’d Be Rude Not To: Lyrical Snippets + Random Thoughts
The Feckers – It’d Be Rude Not To
with a few random thoughts by Richard Anderson
1. Lay It On The Line ft Roy Bratbakken & Irene Slade
I will not cower in the shadows
I will tolerate nothing less than purity
This is my one chance at life
This is my one chance to get it right
Those words certainly lay things on the line alrighty , we wanted to start this album off with a bit of a bang.
2. A Better World ft Chandler Mogel
Living your life with the light locked up inside
It’s time to believe, decide to see things brighter
……For A Better World
A beautifully sung stretch of words there by Mr Pingers…the melody of this song is awesome!
3. Minus ft Roy Bratbakken
Confusion’s near, because we’re all here
But facing inevitable division – drawing near
A great opening two lines (that and “because we’re all here” flows nicely with the album title LOL), the heaviest song on the album without a doubt.
4. Unleash The Beast ft Irene Slade
Unlock the fears
They hold you back
Who needs that?
It’ll only bring you down
And I don’t need that panic attack
I had to go with those lines after having witnessed Irene in full vocal flight - for me that was truely a special moment.
5. Nothing That A Bullet Wouldn’t Fix ft Roy Bratbakken
There is only one solution
There’s no way we can let this go
Society needs to step up to the plate
Self-serving evil, you made your last mistake
Those lines sum up the message of the tune to the hilt, every now and then you’ll write something that you are truely proud of, this is one of those songs that stands out – if anyone were to compile a list of songs that they thought meant more to me than others from various projects, they’d be amiss not to include this one.
6. Out Of Your Mind ft Alexey Spectre
If your whole world crashes through
Who will be there to spit you out alive?
If the wrong decisions descend on you
Who will be there to take your side
Lines that don’t hold back (like the song itself), one of my favourite songs on the album – and one of the heaviest.
7. Never Say Never ft Roy Bratbakken
We can take it to the next level
We can wring the change
Yeah we’ve certainly stepped it up Feckers!, something a bit different that did wring some changes musically.
8. A Soldier’s Fortune ft Rob Smith
We can’t be dragged away
From the light
Angel beckoned me
And I know he was right
A few inspired words there \m/ to Poppy \m/
9. I Don’t Wanna Fight ft Irene Slade
I need you to speak straight
Even if it means shooting like an arrow
Yeah, no fuckin’ around the edges , this song turned out more beautiful than I expected.
10. Master Of My Own Destiny ft Roy Bratbakken
Call me stubborn…I don’t mind
I’ve got an attitude…but I’ve got some pride
I’m making a stand…yes I am!!!
Call it a victory for the little man…yeah!
I think that line “I’ve got an attitude but I’ve got some pride” pretty much sums us up as Feckers
11. The Keys To The Kingdom ft Rob Smith
Let’s change the pace
Put a light – back in your eyes
A couple of lines of hope (I steered away from the sappy lines though LOL), I think Chris is happy to now have this tune finished in proper style.
12. Under The Gun ft Roy Bratbakken
Just listening to the voices in my head
You do that when you’re paying under the gun
It’s quite funny how this was written before I met my pal Leon, yet it hints at an unusual headspace
13. Ours ft Richard Anderson & Chris Szkup
No matter the world of thought
This is our way
Even if Chris and I aren’t the best singers on the block, we’re gonna do it anyway , this one turned out quite nice.
14. Slackers & Wankers (Dedicated To…)
Well listen up little princess!
Coz boy have I got some news for you
I figured people should hear this tune to get the guts of the lyric (so listen up people! LOL)
Non Album Singles:
15. Just ft Roy Bratbakken
Never envisaged sanity
Never dreamt of happiness
Maybe I’m too weak
A bit of cynicism on my part there (and possibly a bit of personal experience in the insanity department
16. Far From Done ft Yohei Eto
There is no cause to question our instincts
There’s no need to dismay over my intentions
In life we build partnerships, yet we must always have our independence as well, don’t sweat over the loyalty factor, if it’s right it’s right, there should be no need for worrying about someone remaining faithful or honest – have good foresight and choose to surround yourself with good people.
17. Music Keeps Me Sane ft Carl Linquist
Throughout worrying times
Music is the cure when I feel pain
…The only thing
To me these lines jumped out when Chris first sent through that rough as guts demo, I related
