Kasabian - Underdog

Kill me if you dare
Hold my head up everywhere
Keep myself right on this train

I'm the Underdog
Live my life on a lullaby
Keep myself riding on this train
Keep myself riding on this train

Love in technicolour, sprayed out on walls
Well I've been pounding at the pavement
'Til there's nothing at all
I got my cloak and dagger
In a bar room brawl
See the local loves a fighter
Loves a winner to fall

Feels like I'm lost in a moment
I'm always losing to win
Can't get away from the moment
Seems like it's time to begin

Kill me if you dare
Hold my head up everywhere
Keep myself right on this train

I'm the Underdog
Live my life on a lullaby
Keep myself riding on this train
Keep myself riding on this train

It don't matter
I won't do what you say
You've got the money and the power
I won't go your way
And I can't take for the people
They don't matter at all
And I'll be waiting in the shadows
'Til the day that you fall

Feels like I'm lost in a moment
And I'm always losing to win
Can't get away from the moment
Seems like it's time to begin

Kill me if you dare,
Hold my head up everywhere
Keep myself right on this train

I'm the Underdog,
Live my life on a lullaby
Keep myself riding on this train

Tell me if you're down
Throw your weapons to the ground
Keep myself riding on this train

Paper on the wire
Sold your soul for another one
Keep myself riding on this train
Keep myself riding on this train

"Underdog" is the fourth single released from the Kasabian album West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum. Via download sales alone, it peaked at #32 in the UK Singles Chart on the week after the album's release and became a widely popular song; however, it only just managed to reach the Top 75 of the chart during its physical release on October 26, 2009, only reaching #45 that time around and despite its popularity, remains as the band's lowest charting single in the UK to date. Tom Meighan told Q magazine that this album opener, "is a great way to start. There's a brilliant fuzzy guitar. By the time you've finished listening to it, you're crushed."
