I really like it. I don't LOVE it.... yet.

A lot of Gaslight takes time to grow for me and on my first listen I like it, but I don't like the lyrics as much as I do on some of their other stuff.... It sounds a bit slick and not quite as raw as I'd like to hear....

But I'll probably change my opinion in a week or two!

That's what I thought on first listen too! But after a few spins it's really growing on me. Love the way the 'A-merrri-can' is drawn out.

To be honest, this has struck me a lot quicker then when I first listend to '59 Sound. Had to listen to that song a good few times before it connected, and well the rest, is history.

I really really like the new song, hopefully the rest of the album will be as good with a few curveballs thrown in?

It kinda sounds like New Wave era Against Me or am i wrong?

Can't wait to hear the other tunes.
Not really blown away like some of the others, but sometimes songs sound better in context of the whole album

So i THINK these are all the lyrics... the lines i filled in where there were ?s fit! Let me know if there are any changes or other things you hear!

Look what you started
I seem to be coming out of my skin
And look what you’ve forgotten here
The bandages just don't keep me in

And when it was over
I woke up alone
And when it was over
I woke up alone

And they cut me to ribbons and taught me to drown
I got your named tattooed inside of my arm
And I called for my father but my father had died
Oh, while you told me fortunes in American Slang

And look at the damage
The fortunes came for the richer men
Whilst we’re left with gallows
Just waiting for us liers to come down and hang

And when it was over
I woke up alone
And when it was over
I woke up alone

And they cut me to ribbons and taught me to drown
I got your named tattooed inside of my arm
And I called for my father but my father had died
Oh, while you told me fortunes in American Slang

And here’s where we died that time last year
And where the angels and devils meet
And you can dance with the queen if you need
And she will always keep her cards close to her heart
Oh, so close to her heart
Before they tear you apart

And they cut me to ribbons and taught me to drown
I got your named tattooed inside of my arm
And I called for my father but my father had died
And we called for our fathers but our fathers had died
And you told us fortunes in American Slang
And you told me fortunes in American Slang

sounds like "cut me to ribbons and taught me to drive" to me

the backing of the chorus sounds like "in a dream i had, oh a little dream i had" too.

Well done Palmer89 (and rkirkpatrick25) for coming up with the lyrics; I could barely make out a word before that.

But I think Brian sings 'while' instead of 'whilst' in "Whilst we’re left with gallows" (some contribution that is ).

So, other than quoting himself, which other lyrics does Brian reference?

I did mean to put while...not sure why I didn't.

As for references, I'd have no idea.

I'm so stoked that the 'cut me to ribbons' line from "Here's Lookin At You, Kid" returns!

Song is great. The lyrics are better than the music, which is just ok.

btw, I think the "We called for our fathers but our fathers had died" line changes. I think the first time it's fathers, the second time brothers, and the last time it's mothers.

Might just be me though.

I don't know, I'm hearing fathers every time except the last time he says it, then it sounds like mothers.

I think I can hear the 'brothers' in the 'we called' line, so Dave may have a point.

Well that's where I'm hearing mothers. I don't know though. It's a very tricky line to actually hear completely cause he kinda mumbles the ending ones.

No I heard that to its like a Gaslight, American Steel, Against me mash up.

Still pretty solid I dont love it but I dont hate it has raised my hopes for this album though I was worried it was going to be a massive standard rock album but faith has been restored.

Not too bad. Don't think I'd prefer it to their older stuff yet though. Maybe once I hear it a few more times. Not disappointed though, was still above average!
