BEST LYRICS OF 2006:

3. I’ve got to go, but what a prize to give, package deal to the sun, everything is inclusive, where bullet holes scar the minarets, smoke on the horizon, a beautiful sunset, Going on my Middle Eastern holiday, give me a gun, I hope I see my mum again” – Hard-Fi, “Middle Eastern Holiday”

4. “It’s not how you start, it’s how you finish, and it’s not where you’re from, it’s where you’re at, Everybody gets knocked down, Everybody gets knocked down, How quick are you gonna’ get up? How quick are you gonna’ get up?

Like Ali in the jungle, Like Nelson in jail, Like Simpson on the mountain, With odds like that, they were bound to fail, Like Keller in the darkness, Like Adams in the dock, Like Ludwig Van, how I loved that man, well the guy went deaf and didn’t give a damn” The Hours, “Ali in the Jungle”

5. “The televison spits and the wives are crying, the adverts tell the truth when the father’s lying, why won’t someone tell me why my government doesn’t hear all the warnings” Hope of the States, “Industry”
