  • Lyrics
  • Over a bluesy guitar groove, Matt Thomson sings of the expectation heaped on him to have an opinion on everything.

    Not yet 25, they'll be kicking down the doors
    Not yet 25, too loud to be ignored
    Heard it on the vine, the sigh became a roar
    There's this song I've been singing
    Kind of wrong but I mean it


    Thomson fears that he is too young to add anything meaningful to the debate.
  • Thomson told The Independent he is "being bombarded with conflicting information all the time." People are giving out the usual criticisms of politicians, Brexit etc., which gets to be extremely boring. The singer questions what they are actually adding to the conversation.
