Diamonds, glitter and trauma tears,
With an unfriendly atmosphere.
We'll make our night,
We'll make tonight.

Your potential is underused,
Your skin will break
Into jigsaw shaped pieces of meat,
You'll fall apart.

You can save them all.
I believe that you can.
Even though, you never listen.
You never listen.

But you are, the human, strobe.
You are the human strobe.

We are, like lightening, surrounded.
You are the human strobe.

Slaughtered moments and useless tales,
Encourage others to take the blame.
I love you when, you're not around.

You can save them all.
I believe that you can.
Even though, you never listen.
You never listen.

Let's take aim, you're looking the other way.
The right target, she's looking the other way.
There's no wreckage, I'll help you to do it right,
Tonight, we'll make it ours.

You are, the human, strobe.
You are the human strobe.

We are, like lightening, surrounded.
You are the human strobe.

Let's take aim, I'll help you to do it right.
Tonight, we'll make it ours.

You are, the human, strobe.
You are the human strobe.

We are, like lightening, surrounded.
You are the human strobe.

    General Comment:i think this song is about somebody you admire but dislike in person. but then again biffy always seem to use vocals as an instrument rather than to get a message across.

    General Comment:i think this is a awesome song, a great way to start the new album.. the chorus is disco like, just makes you want to sing along and dance.. like most good biffy songs the chorus is so powerful.. these guys were hitting out crazy beats long before the likes of franz ferdinand..

    General Comment:This is a wonderful, though slightly confusing song. When i first hear it, i thought the lyrics said "You are the human straw..." I must be going deaf. *sweat*

    General Comment:I believe this song is talking about being insane, being inside an insylum (Spelling?) and, you know, the music video has a lot to do with this opinion.

    General Comment:This is my opinion (and is probably wrong):
    I think this song is about someone who has a great deal of pressure but on them to be the light (strobe light- get it?) for everyone and save them. And they have to appear all like glitter (like there's nothing wrong and they're perfect etc.) but inside they aren't like that and feel traumatic and stuff. And the person that makes them feel invinsable and makes them happy isn't there anymore so they're dreaming of that person singing that song to them or something.
