​Hunting The Whale

This song is by It Bites and appears on the album Once Around The World (1988).

I'm riding on the breakers watch out for me
I'm feeling pretty tired it's after three
They should be out of season any day
I always get what I want anyway

I'm not giving up, giving up
I'm on the losing side
The thorns in my side and it hurts me
I bid you goodbye mother, miss me
'Cause I'll miss you

Why can't you leave them alone?
They'll soon all be gone
When you're hunting the whale
Waiting for the big one

The aged never surface although they're there
I cannot seem to hook them they're more aware
The animal is bleeding watch it go
They always get so tired look so old.

I'm not giving up, giving up
I'm on the losing side
The thorns in my side and it hurts me
I bid you goodbye mother, miss me
'Cause I'll miss you

Why can't you leave them alone?
They'll soon all be gone
When you're hunting the whale
Waiting for the big one

I won't let this man defeat me
I'll fight with this pain to release me
Twisting and turning the ropes are still burning
It cannot take the strain because I'm free

Why can't you leave them alone?
They'll soon all be gone
When you're hunting the whale
Waiting for the big one
