I'm snowed in and my batteries dead
fly is delayed and my friends were late
then you forgot to wonder watch
don't forget to watch out when you wind me up

It just wouldn't stop
I couldn't even love the handle stuck
I just gave gave up, I'm gone left behind
I thought that you were right
searching in devise how could you spin me your love's life

And the hanging on 'cause I wanna
and the feelings gone but I got to
and I'm hanging on 'cause I wanna
and the feelings gone but I got to

Miling hearts and my broken arm
the trade new look I'm feeling..
we ran away until we reach this dates
the night became a darker shade of purple gray

Push fire and in my phone lines
no man's land that wasted spacin in
the lights went out and the voices shouted
I'm black back meet then they Jack
just screaming out the dawn

And the hanging on 'cause I wanna
and the feelings gone but I got to
and I'm hanging on 'cause I wanna
and the feelings gone but I got to

'cause I wanna
but I got to
'cause I wanna
but I got to

Machine guns Afghanistan, 'cause I wanna
our micro ways and..sprays, 'cause I got to
a voice and darks and..your stars
just drag my heart and leave me lying in the blood

'cause I wanna
but I got to
'cause I wanna
but I got to

The lyrics shown currently are a bit wrong.  These are better, but I'm not sure if they got everything right either: Hanging On Lyrics (at Metrolyrics)
Unplug everything now.  (except radio paradise)  Camel Walk, Song 2, now this.  Brilliant.  I wanna, but I gotta.
Sounds a bit like Bernard Sumner and Johnny Marr's Electronic to me...

The same thought came to my mind as well.
Really like the harmonies on this tune. 
What about a gig with the opening band as thenewno2 followed by Tame Impala.

How's that for a nostalgia/retro trip! 
Sounds like Dad..I think George would like this.
I have "The Prisoner" on DVD...fantastic series!!

Liking their feel, somewhere near Garbage and Down Like Silver.

Prisoner reference deserves a bump also.{#Cool} 
FOMO is a real thing, man.

Number Six

Number Six: You won't get it.
Number Two
: By hook or by crook, we will.
Number Six: Who are you?
Number Two
: The new Number Two.
Number Six: Who is Number One?
Number Two: You are Number Six.
Number Six

Song sucks

Tasty, rich, soothingly spinning song...so many layers, so many thoughts brought on, so many vibes brought along...and knowing it's George's son makes it even better!  All success to him!
 
McGovern?  Bush?  Carlin?  (Sorry, it's like Tourette's.  But yeah, I like the song, too.)

"Plays in last 30 days: 5". So, that's on average1 play every 6 days.

"overplayed"  = I don't like the song

Most excellent!

Keeps making think of Ween - Roses are Free.
Like it.  Yet another RP discovery.  And based on comments, I take it this is George's son?  Way cool.  Had no idea.
 I'm so glad you posted these! It really helps. {#Sunny}

Here's my best guess as to the lyrics:

I'm snowed in and my battery's dead

Flight's delayed and my friends were late
Then you forgot to wind your watch
Don't forget to watch out when you wind me up
It just wouldn't start, I couldn't even love
The handle stuck, I just gave up
I got left behind, I thought that you were right
Such a mean device how could you spin me all those lies?

And I'm hanging on 'cause I wanna
And the feeling's gone but I gotta
And I'm hanging on 'cause I wanna
And the feeling's gone but I gotta

Iron heart, and my broken arm
The train derailed, I'm feeling failed
We ran away until we reached the States
The night became a darker shade of purple gray
Bush fire in my phone lines
A no-man's land, wasted space and then
The lights went out and the voices shouted
Black bagged me then they dragged you screaming out the door

And I'm hanging on 'cause I wanna
And the feeling's gone but I gotta
And I'm hanging on 'cause I wanna
And the feeling's gone but I gotta

'Cause I wanna
But I gotta
'Cause I wanna
But I gotta

Machine guns. Afghanistan,
Microwaves, and pepper spray,
Poison darts, and throwing stars
Strike my heart and leave me lying in the gutter

'Cause I wanna
But I gotta
'Cause I wanna
But I gotta

This is Dhani Harrison (George's son) for those who don't know....I heard some of their stuff a couple of years ago before it got promoted, and was really looking forward to it becoming more widespread.
 
Thanks, BillG!
 
wow. i never would have put that together. interesting.

anyway, i really like this more every time i hear it. 
So at a festival last summer, I'm watching Glen Hansard on a side stage, and after a sloppy, rainy day, in the middle of his set, the sun finally peeks out.  And Glen, who loves to chat with his audience, starts playing a couple of notes from "Here Comes the Sun" and then stops and says something like —- probably shouldn't play that, makes me a little nervous to play it in front of the writer's son, and he looks over to the adjacent stage area, where Dhani and the rest of thenewno2 are waiting for their turn to go on.  Cool moment, was kind of hoping Dhani would come out and play it with Glenn... but he didn't.
I know I'm being juvenile but...
the new poop? 
This is brilliant along with other stuff I've heard from this album.
George would be very proud!           {#Daisy}
Wonderful to hear this new sound. Thanks, Bill for tuning the world on to this new artist. Great beat.

It's an unmistakeable reference to it. Each episode of the Prisoner started with a similar title sequence, in which there was always the exchange:

Prisoner: Who are you?
Two: The new Number Two.
Prisoner: Who is Number One?
Two: You are Number Six.
Prisoner: I am not a number; I am a free man!
with a different actor playing Number Two in each episode.
Hearing Prince
Really like their sound. And the slight George tang of his voice is agreeable to my ears too.
made me look, (again)

Worthy of an 8 for starters. 
 
That's exactly where Dhani got the name from.
Love it.  Saw them last summer and they are a cool unique group.
......I quite like this.......anyone know what the rest of the lp is like?....
...once you started wearing those shoes...

Everytime I've heard thenewno2 I have to stop what I'm doing to see who it is. I like!
First hearing this — gets a 7 straight outta the gate, from me!  Curious to hear more tracks from them.

Doesn't sound like anything I need to hear more of. It's okay but ... just a curiosity.
Made me look up - in a good way. 
COOOOL!
