Hitting The Ground Lyrics. I was beaten up, I was beaten down By my life and a photographic sound I was filled with love, I was filled with rage My life book shook with the turning of it's page. Hitting the ground, hitting the ground And there ain't no friend round, never be found Hitting the ground, hitting the ground And there ain't no-one there to help you come down. I'm gonna go way up in an airplane I'm gonna go way out insane I don't know if I'd ever come down I don't know if I can reach the ground.

Besides, Hitting the Ground has plenty of problems without the Femmes' legacy towering over it. Let me first be upfront, though, about the few positives: some of these songs are, in fact, dangerously entertaining. It's great to hear Lou doing his classic monotone over the broad funk riffs of "Catch 'Em in the Act". And let's not forget the true highlight of the album, "It's Money", featuring Gano and Martha Wainwright. The only true duet here, this track almost recalls the easygoing bliss of latter-day Talking Heads songs like "Radio Head" or "Nothing (But Flowers)". The point is (and you probably got this a while ago), Hitting the Ground isn't without its enjoyable moments. So what's the problem, then? The problem is this: none of these tracks are all that interesting beyond a listen or two- even the best ones get tired fast.
