about

‘Hunter’ tells the story of an ageing thrill-seeker who remains unencumbered by the stifling expectations of society. The song was written by Pirra to pass the time on the 1000km drive from Sydney to Brisbane at the end of their last east coast tour.

lyrics

I'm an old school hunter you know
Grown plumper from the kill
Though the thrill left me long ago
It keeps governing me still

As the days are getting numbered I’m growing less encumbered, am I sinking deeper
Will I reach the golden hundred, live the life that you expect, as the pass I climb gets steeper

All the small minded people
I don’t care what they think
‘cause I’m an animal, that looks like a man
I don’t remember who I am

I need everybody to understand,
I care that you know I don’t care what you think
I’m a rabid wolf on the run
And that’s what I am
Believe me I don’t give a damn

And when I get to the bank of the other side
And my wake resides on the shores of your pride
Yo ho diablo, aint got nothing on me
Always standing on the firing line,

So when the afterlife greets me my feats will proceed me I’ll stare into the eyes I’ve set free
I’d rather live a day as a beast than one hundred with a fleece,
bowing down to your leader

All the small minded people
I don’t care what they think
‘cause I’m an animal, That looks like a man
I don’t remember who I am

I need everybody to understand,
I care that you know I don’t care what you think
I’m a rabid wolf on the run
And that’s what I am
Believe me I don’t give a damn
