"Highly Evolved" as written by and Nicholls....
I'm feelin' happy
So highly evolved
My time's a riddle that'll never be solved
Dreamin' for somethin'
Reachin' for somethin'
Just waitin' for the sun to carry me in

If you feel low
You can buy love
From a pay phone
I don't feel low

My brother Bill
He work for the market
Life is an arrow now and he is the target
Dreamin' for somethin'
Reachin' for somethin'
Just waitin' for the sun to carry me in

If you feel low
You can buy blow
From a pay phone
I don't feel low

Highly Evolved
Highly Evolved
Highly Evolved
Highly Evolved

I don't feel low

Highly Evolved

    General CommentSeems like a song about drugs, to me. 'Highly Evolved' could mean being high, because drugs make people feel better then usual. The lyrics also have a lot of possible drug references, such as "Buying love from a payphone". That could mean calling a drug dealer and having the stuff delivered. The part about his brother Bill could also be used as a drug reference, what with the talk of the 'market' and such. I think Bill was a drug dealer, rather then his actual brother, but he got caught doing something he wasn't supposed to and now he;s being hunted by other drug lords or something. Just a theory ^^

    General CommentI think that this song means that he is feeling good about himself living life, then by if you feel love you can buy love from a payphone, maybe he means that if you call someone you can feel wanted. Then about his brother bill he might mean that his brother is becoming a victim of society and is getting run over by life. I dunno just my guess,too tired right now to think

    General CommentHe is happy with his life, he doesn't understand it but is content with letting things happen, Bill on the other hand is not content and wants to change things, but in doing so has become what he set out to destroy or change, he say he doesnt feel low, but if you do you can change it.
