"Juicebox" as written by Henry Nicola Mancini and Julian Casablancas....
Everybody sees me, but it’s not that easy
Standing in the light field, standing in the light field
Waiting for some action, waiting for some action
No but why won’t you come over here?

Why wont you come over here, we’ve got a city to love
Why wont you come over here, we’ve got a city to love

Oh time grudges, we die so slowly
I know you miss the way I saw you
Cold you’re so cold, you’re so cold
You’re so cold

Nobody could see me, everything’s to easy
Standing in the light field, standing in the light field
Waiting for some actress, waiting for some actress
To say why won’t you come over here?

Why wont you come over here, we’ve got a city to love
Why wont you come over here, we’ve got a city to love

Oh time goes so, you die so save me
You never trust me
For a while it was nice but its time to say bye
Cold you’re so cold, you’re so cold
You’re so cold

No no Cold you’re so cold, you’re so cold
You’re so cold
No no no Cold you’re so cold, you’re so cold
You’re so cold
No no You’re so cold.

    General CommentOk this song is just one big "fuck you" to rock stars and celebrities . Julian is talking about how he is sick of the celebrity culture and the shallow relationships that come along with it. The video is making fun of the music industry and shallow people who only care about sex. Thank you and goodnight.

    General CommentI think the second time it sounds like he says "Waiting for some actress, waiting for some actress to say 'Why won't you come over here?'" But maybe it's just me.

    General Commentthis song is amazing....the whole of the new album is supposed to sound very different but if its as good as this song then i dont care.. this is my new "drive fast" song.
    the riff is so un-Strokes-ish but as soon as the chorus kicks in its julian back to his brilliant best.
    now im pissed of coz i have to wait for a few months to here the rest of the album.
