"Cells" as written by and Trevor Sharpe Daniel Edward Black....
It'll all click when the mortgage clears
All our fears will disappear
Now you go to bed, I'm staying here
I've got another level that I want to clear

My skin feels like orange peel
My eyes have been vacuum-sealed
My organs move like a squirm of eels
We should be more adventurous with our meals

They annoy me those who employ me
They could destroy me, they should enjoy me
We eat Chinese off our knees
And look for each other in the TV screen

The sun goes up and the sun goes down
I drag myself into the town
All I do I wanna to do with you

Everyday I'm at my desk
At my desk I'm like the rest
All I do I wanna do with you

On the city's skin they move on mass
Like a rash on the back of a manky cat
Now in I go like a fool
I can't resist dipping in the pool

I watch them watch me, I watch them too
Across the street, across the room
I dress myself like a charcoal sketch
My eyes are brown and my hair's a mess

They annoy me those who employ me
They could destroy me, they should enjoy me
We eat Chinese off our knees
And look for each other in the TV screen

The sun goes up and the sun goes down
I drag myself into the town
All I do I wanna to do with you

Everyday I'm at my desk
At my desk I'm like the rest
All I do I wanna to do with you

The sun goes up and the sun goes down
I drag myself into the town
All I do I wanna to do with you

The cells I am at the moment will soon die
But I will be here, oh, I'll still be here
The cells I am at the moment will soon die
But I will be here, oh, I'll still be here

Oh, the sun goes up and the sun goes down
I drag myself into the town
All I do I wanna to do with you

Everyday I'm at my desk
At my desk I'm like the rest
All I do I wanna to do with you

Everyday, everyday, everyday
Everyday, everyday, everyday
Everyday

Everyday, everyday, everyday
Everyday, everyday, everyday
Everyday

Everyday, everyday, everyday
Everyday, everyday, everyday
Everyday

    General CommentYup, Sin City trailer, too. Pretty cool. But in the trailer, there's a long instrumental part, just at the point where the music gets heavy. Actually, there's no singing in the whole trailer. And in the song, the guy's always singing... I think it's pity, cause the music itself is great, and I'd like to enjoy it wihout the disturbance. No matter, the song rocks.

    General CommentI also heard in the sin city trailer. I cant wait for this movie.

    I think this song is just about an average guy who's sick of his boring, monotonous life.

    The lines "We eat chinese off our knees
    And look for each other in the TV screen " reminds me of my family. Its very sad when you look at them and think about this song.

    General CommentYea, I definitely agree with zenzella. The song's about a monotonous life, working in a boring job, always telling yourself that things will be done soon ("It'll all click when the mortgage clears"). Yet it seems like despite how boring, uneventful, or undesirable his life is, the singer doesn't mind so much so long as that special person is with him (whether it's a lover or just someone close).

    And by the way, from what I understand, an all-instrumental version will be available on the Sin City soundtrack. I know I can't wait - the song sounds so amazing in the trailer, I can't get it out of my head.

    General CommentFantastic song. I can't believe this is their first full-length album. I thought the instrumental version was better first (having heard it on Sin City trailer like everyone else) but the song version just grows on you. "On the city's skin they move en masse/like a rash on the back of a mangy cat" ... I love the lyrics.
