  1. Bad Bear

From the recording Imperfection - The Album

There are people that one encounters in life and work who appear to be supportive and caring whilst their intentions are entirely self-serving and even malicious. The Bad Bear is a metaphor for such characters.

Black sky, dark thunder
Nice try, you wonder
If Bad Bear’s got you down

Self serve, self centre
I got your number
Bad Bear you won’t get me down

Bad Bear won’t get me down
Bad Bear won’t get me down

Look around, stay ready
‘cause that’s no Teddy
Bad Bears can always pounce

Cold eyes, croc smiles
They change their styles
But Bad Bears stay bad inside

Bad Bears stay bad inside
Bad Bears stay bad inside

Instrumental Bridge

Black sky, dark thunder
Nice try, you wonder
If Bad Bear’s got you down

Self serve, self centre
I got your number
Bad Bear you won’t get me down, no

Bad Bear won’t get me down
Bad Bear won’t get me down

Instrumental Break as per intro
