"Man Ray" as written by David Craig, Barry Hyde, David Hyde and Ross Millard....
It gives me Manray
It's what we like
It gives me Weston
Touch each other in black and white
Eia eia eieieia, eia eia eieieia, eia eia eieieia etc

Where did your hands go
When you thought I was your life
I could see his hands
They were touching you all night

And where did your hands go
When you thought I was your life
I could see his hands
They were touching you all night
Touching you all night night night

Touch yourself, touch yourself, touch each other in black and white
Touch yourself, touch yourself, touch each other in black and white
Touch yourself, touch yourself, touch each other in black and white
Touch yourself, touch yourself, touch each other in black and white

Give me Manray
It's what we like
Give me Weston
Touch each other in black and white

Touch yourself, touch yourself, touch each other in black and white
Touch yourself, touch yourself, touch each other in black and white
Touch yourself, touch yourself, touch each other in black and white
Touch yourself, touch yourself, touch each other in black and white

    General Commenti think this is the best song on the album. i have no idea what this song is about either. well it could just be about the art of touching yourself and others or about art or oh i don't know

    General Commentlove this song and can't get enuf of it.i think its about like people who have to touch each other for photos don't mean anything by what theyre doing and thats like a love between 2 people - its meaningless.

    General CommentMyabe their on about 'Weston-Super-Mare'. The most UN-super place in the UK. Trust me, I've been there. The sea is brown. :S :S Do you need more?


    (In all honesty, I don't think they're on about Weston-S-M, but hey)

    General CommentHaha. I live in Weston-super-Mare. It's okay. It's better than Blackpool at least.

    Anyway, isn't it 'western' not 'weston'? *shrug*

    General CommentHere is an excerpt from a PopMatters review of the album that seems to clear it all up regarding Man Ray/Weston:

    *** "Man Ray" namechecks photographic legends Man Ray and Edward Weston, but like a young Charles Thompson referencing Salvador Dali and Luis Bunuel, the meaning of the song is deliberately vague, the lyrical rhythms fitting well with the band's performance ("Touch yourself, touch yourself, touch each other in black and white"). ***

    (The "Charles Thompson" bit is a reference to the Pixies lead singer, who called himself Black Francis, and the song "Debaser," in case anybody didn't know.)

    BTW, the review was glowing. As are all reviews of this record that I've read.

    "Man Ray" has gradually become my favorite song on this album, too. I rock out to it frequently. Woo-hoo!
