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 »


 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

(J. Burns/B. Foxton)


You've listened to too many liars too long
And too many were your masters
You've got the chance here to right all the wrong
Don't squander it on disaster
You're standing in a bright new dawn
Got hope and belief enough for everyone
Got the opportunity in your hand
Now use it while you can


People have written you off many times
But you are a great survivor
And though you have suffered some terrible crimes
I know it's just made you stronger
You're standing on your own two feet
Got a morbid past but you've got it beat
Got the key for living sitting in your hand
Now use it while you can

You've got to hold on
To how you feel today
This is the last train from the wasteland


And cynics will tell you there's problems ahead
But you go ahead and solve them
They'll fill you with doubt and suspicion and dread
But your strength can overcome them
You got to face the critics down
Any fool can give in but you can't bow down
You got too many lives and futures in your hand
So save them while you can


And every road that I've walked down
I know your streets I know your towns
I think I know the way you feel
So stand up strong and proud
Fear is not the answer

And though this is only the start I know
How long they have kept you waiting
No matter how far down the road you go
The first few steps, a new beginning
So grab the future with both hands
Nobody said it'd be the promised land
But you can make it better than it's ever been
So change it while you can

(Chorus x2)


Last train
Last train
Last train
Last train
Last train
