    "Up Against The Wall" Lyrics

    The Whitlams

    To think it was going so well
    We'd go out at night come home and fight like hell
    Good fights about big things
    You know just pushing around in the dark

    To think I was scared to open the box
    New love on the doorstep isn't it funny there's nothing on how it works
    Go on have a look inside
    You won't know what you did without it

    Well you slept
    You met interesting people

    And you slept with them
    I'm up against the wall now

    Hotel room, a silent phone
    A packet of fags, a bottle of wine, a suitcase you call your own
    When the darkness comes from the inside out
    And even the barmen are pricks

    Vitriol, the cigarettes
    A long night of thinking and the search for the best vignettes
    Yeah well it was good wasn't it
    Then it got bad

    Some say love it only comes once in a lifetime
    Well once is enough for me
    She was one in a million
    So there's five more just in New South Wales

    There's a show on the television now
    A man in the jungle with monkeys, he's saying we've come so far
    Yeah well it's news to me
    I'd better go evolve now

    To think it was going to well
    We'd go out at night come home and fight like hell
    Good fights about big things
    Like "who wrote the book on men?"
    Well it was me

    I'm up against the wall now
    And I'm afraid to say I must fail her
