Jamie T returns with ‘The Old Style Raiders’, the lead single from the upcoming album ‘The Theory of Whatever.’

This follows the 15 years anniversary celebrations of ‘Panic Prevention,’ Jamie T’s seminal debut album which went platinum in the UK this year.

“It’s got hope in it” T explained of ’The Old Style Raiders’ in a statement. “It’s fighting to find something that means enough to you that you love. The fight to find that, and to carry on striving, to find something you love enough to hold on to.“

“Rather than kid love or movie love or gushy love or lust love, whatever you have when you’re younger – it’s actually trying to fight for something that means more than that. It’s the struggle to find that.”

Jamie T has been away, and done a lot, but now he’s back. And he has a lot to say.

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Going up town ’til your feet fall off
Hold yourself down ’til you can’t come up
Hard times in the promised land
Looking for a thief in a common man
Every little sign is a thing to you
Every line’s just another clue
We see the bottle of the boy in blue
That made you steal the heart

[Pre-Chorus]
‘Cause it’s not fair to grow inside
When from the outside in it looks so right
But inside our life, it seems unkind
And when the wolves they scream about killing dogs
‘Cause it’s not fair to tell a lie
Forever unwashed dreams seem so rife
And if you didn’t know better
You’d swear sometimes
That you never knew love

[Chorus 1]
Toe the line
Hard to find
Told to fight for something you loved in life

[Verse 2]
Worry deep down ’til you’re skin and bone
Mould yourself now that the picture’s stopped
Hard yards in the castle sand
Slipping through the fingers of a modern man
Every little sign is a thing is true
Every town is another you
We’ll see the father of your mother’s blues
That made you fall apart

[Pre-Chorus]
‘Cause it’s not fair to grow inside
When from the outside in it looks so right
But inside our life, it seems unkind
And when the wolves they scream about killing dogs
‘Cause it’s not fair to tell a lie
Forever unwashed dreams seem so rife
And if you didn’t know better
You’d swear sometimes
That you never knew love

[Chorus 1]
Toe the line
Hard to find
Told to fight for something you loved in life

[Chorus 2]
Toe the line
[?]
Call out to to find your something to love in life

[Verse 3]
Have you ever had to walk away
From something that’s cold light in the light of day?
My town
My fault
I’m feeling lost in haze
I’ve never had to walk away
But can I be on your mind?
I’ve seldom lost my way
You never knew nothing lies
Have you ever had to walk away
From something that you loved yesterday?
I saw the 3-4-5
The three looked lost [?] to me
I’ve never had to walk away
Now can I be on your mind?
I’ve seldom lost my way
‘Cause you never knew love

[Chorus 1]
Toe the line
Hard to find
Told to fight for something you loved in life

[Chorus 2]
Toe the line
[?]
Call out to find your something to love in life

[Outro]
In life [x12]
