Stiff Little Fingers

Stiff Little Fingers are a punk rock band from Belfast, Northern Ireland. They formed in 1977, at the height of the Troubles. They started out as a schoolboy band called Highway Star (named after the Deep Purple song), doing rock covers, until they discovered punk. They split up after six years and four albums, although they reformed five years later, in 1987. Despite major personnel changes, they are still touring and recording as of 2011. Jake Burns, their lead singer, is the only member to have been with the band during all its incarnations, but in March 2006, original bass guitarist Ali McMordie rejoined them following the departure of The Jam bass player Bruce Foxton after fifteen years. more »

(Jake Burns)

The smallest goal in life's worth having
You need the purpose
You need the ideal
Or the dream
Don't waste the impulse or the longing
Most precious thing
We have in life is time
So use it right
And it feels like you head's exploding
And it feels like you've been set free

You've got the hunger and desire
You've got the talent
Make the move to see what you'll achieve
You feel the fever burn inside you
This kind of illness
Leaves you so alive
You know your mind
And it feels like you head's exploding
And it feels like you've been set free

Chorus:
What does it take?
To set my heart soaring
How does it feel?
To watch my soul fly
To set my face against the wind
Knowing full well I can win

(Repeat chorus)
