"Apollo 13" as written by Brett Anderson and Bernard Joseph Butler....
Estuary girl you're not the one
You don't belong to the world that I'm from
Your lazy words blow like confetti in the wind
In the wind

Estuary girl you're not part of my scene
Your feet don't belong in my upholstery
Sometimes I sink when you call me on the phone
On the phone

Oh but if you follow me I will follow you to the unknown
Oh like Apollo, like Apollo we'll fly to the moon
Oh yes if you follow me I will follow you to the unknown
Oh like Apollo, like Apollo 13 we'll explode

Sad as a song, a child of the streets
Your skin don't belong on my designer sheets
In eyeliner you wrote me a note that I'll never read at all
Estuary girl

Oh but if you follow me I will follow you to the unknown
Oh like Apollo, like Apollo we'll fly to the moon
Oh yes if you follow me I will follow you into the unknown
Oh like Apollo, like Apollo 13 we'll explode

Oh yes if you follow me I will follow you into the unknown
(Estuary girl you're not the one)
Oh like Apollo, like Apollo we'll sink like a stone
(You don't belong to the world that I'm from)
Oh yes if you follow me I will follow you into the unknown
(Estuary girl you're not the one)
Oh like Apollo, like Apollo 13 we'll explode
(You don't belong to the world that I'm from)

(Estuary girl you're not the one)
(You don't belong to the world that I'm from)

(Estuary girl you're not the one)
You don't belong to the world that I'm from

    General CommentPerhaps the climax of the album, Brett says this song is about a "doomed relationship". Could it be that the girl died? The note, "Estuary girl", "I will follow you to the unknown" seem to suggest that.

    General CommentI'm not sure if she really died, but this is cleary a love between two people of different social classes.

    General CommentEstuary girl you're not the one
    You don't belong to the world that I'm from
    Your lazy words blow like confetti in the wind

    Oh but if you follow me I will follow you to the unknown
    Oh like Apollo, like Apollo we'll fly to the moon
    Oh yes if you follow me I will follow you to the unknown
    Oh like Apollo, like Apollo 13 we'll explode
