lyrics

Your head is about the same size
You bleed, you cry, you get fat
You lie and you cheat and you steal
Just like some of us,
Just like some of us
Yet, there you are with the prize
Your rivals prone on the mat
You rose above, you sealed the deal
Not like any of us,
Not like any of us

Suddenly
Your every word
Has its own gravity
Your every move
Is a study

You are Leaders of Men
You are Leaders of Men
Bastards now and then
Can we say ‘when’?
To the Leaders of Men
To the Leaders of Men
Bastards now and then
Can we say ‘when’?
To the Leaders of Men

Your name on suits embroidered
Your little hands turn the wheel
Your votes called and delivered
There’s no going back, there’s no appeal
(History?) Take it or leave it
(Facts?) Feelings are better
(Numbers?) Can dance and flit
(Truth?) Is in the eye of beholder

Suddenly
Your every word
Has its own gravity
Your every move
Is a study

You are Leaders of Men
You are Leaders of Men
Bastards now and then
Can we say ‘when’?
To the Leaders of Men
To the Leaders of Men
Bastards now and then
Can we say ‘when’?
To the Leaders of Men

Thermal And A Quarter Bengaluru, India

"Thermal And A Quarter (TAAQ) is on the vanguard of the Indian Rock Scene" - NPR, USA

Founded in 1996, TAAQ is an eclectic, irreverent (but usually relevant) band that considers itself and its music as bastard children of the world. At home everywhere, belonging nowhere. Always true, tight, intense and ready to laugh.
