"Venus And Serena" as written by Huw Bunford, Cian Ciaran, Dafydd Ieuan, Guto Pryce and Gruff Rhys....
Father, father, I have sinned
I dunno where to begin
Give me words of advice
I'll save 'em up for a clear day

Keep your eye upon the ball
Write your thoughts upon the wall
There's some words of advice
Save 'em up for a clear day

Venus and Serena understand
(Venus and Serena understand)
Venus and Serena understand

Flushing meadows down the stream
Living life as though it's a dream
Eat the future today
Don't save it up for a rainy day

Holy bombs make holy holes
Holy holes make homeless moles
Take the turtle and hare
Don't run around when you can walk there

Venus and Serena understand
(Venus and Serena understand)
Venus and Serena understand

Father, father, father, father can't you see?
I'm a walking tragedy
Father, father, father when I look to the past
I never realized that it wouldn't last

Venus and Serena understand
(Venus and Serena understand)
Venus and Serena understand
(Venus and Serena understand)
Venus and Serena understand
(Venus and Serena understand)
Venus and Serena understand

I've one final thing to say
I'm not your father anyway
Found you under a cloud
Left outside by the wolves one day, hey

    General CommentI think it is about growing up. And the time when you realise that world is not so fantastic. You get to know about wars and when you try to speak with your parents about it they are not that nice either. The parents have lived for so long that they have started to ignore the evil in our crazy world.

    General CommentIt's funny, at the start of the inside leaf lyrics to this song, there are the lines:

    "I was raised by wolves until the age of two,
    During that time, my best friends and closest
    confidants were my pet turtles, Venus and Serena"

    explains the last lines of the song about the son being found outside. But i'd say it's about growing up too, about how scary and confusing things in the adult world are, and how his childhood innocence has gone("Father father father when i look to the past, i didn't realise that it wouldn't last").
