You will become the victorious (become what may)
With the skill to fell the rest of them down, you are what I despise
And I hope you judge your life on all the friends you've made
To think, to think you went away (Yes I did for you and I'm far away from you!)
It's the same as I feel low, everything's the same, nothing matters, but it is all right
You will become the victorious (become what may)
With the skill to fell the rest of them down, fit you into your mouth
To think, to think you ran away (Yes I did for you and I'm far away from you!)
It's the same as I feel low, everything's the same, nothing matters, but it is all right
Why would you bow down? Why would you bow down? Would you, would you stay? Stay a while for...

    General CommentThey should definately get all their b-sides together for a release! I feel that many fans are missing out on songs like this because they only buy albums (myself included typically)!

    My InterpretationI think this could possibly be about somebody talented, who the lyricist seems to dislike,

    "You will become the victorious (become what may)
    With the skill to fell the rest of them down, you are what I despise"
    Seems to point to the talent side of things, and how the lyricist seems to dislike that fact. They deserve all the fame they get, but the lyricist still resents them for some reason.

    "And I hope you judge your life on all the friends you've made
    To think, to think you went away (Yes I did for you and I'm far away from you!)"
    Points toward this figure leaving at some point, possibly a change in social circle (one that the lyricist holds at a distaste). It also seems to speak of the lyricist being somewhat happy about this.

    "It's the same as I feel low, everything's the same, nothing matters, but it is all right"
    Could possibly be how nothings changed with this figures departure, things are back to normal and the lyricist is relieved about this, if no happier than he was before, but I'm not too sure here.

    "fit you into your mouth"
    Makes me think of the figure having a big mouth, big enough to fit himself into it.

    "Why would you bow down? Why would you bow down? Would you, would you stay? Stay a while for..."
    Then turns the track slightley on its head, showing possible regret at the figure leaving, like the lyricst even misses the figure.

    But these are just rough ideas, first time interpreting.

    General CommentThis song epitomises what made Biffy Clyro a great band.
