"Bodies in Flight" as written by Victor Young, Bing Crosby and Ned Washington....
You're free to choose what we want you,
Feel free to do what we want to
When we collide, the air will rise,
It's all that you will need it for before you go

When the day wears you, create simple lies,
When the day wears you, be simple lies
Sleep well my dear, sleep well my dear, bodies in flight
You're free to choose what we want you,
Feel free to do what we want to
Slip into your dreams, the air will crash,
Hovering in a perfect shape, we'll watch you go

When the day wears you, create simple lies,
When the day wears you, great simple lies
Sleep well my dear, sleep well my dear,
Bodies in flight, little or no movement
When you say love, I know that you mean hateful,
Boulders of spite ridden love decay
A mansion in an easy disguise of simple lies,
Boulders of spite ridden love decay

    General CommentThis is their greatest song imo. The dynamics and variances are just off the wall, its like no other band/song ive ever heard. By far the best band out there (minus the Puzzle album, they seem to have lost a lot of steam with that).

    General CommentIm quite sure the opening lines are: 'What way could you, what way would you?'

    General CommentHands-down, the best gig I ever saw (in Nottingham last November). I can't wait till they open for the Foo's in July at Milton Keynes. Can't wait!!!
