"Anything can happen in the next half hour" as written by Roughton Reynolds, Chris Batten, Liam Rory Clewlow and Robert Rolfe....
His eyes are locked on her,
Her eyes are fixed elsewhere,
He's confident, but he's not aware,
She doesn't care.
Their only connection, is the silence that they both grasp,
He's lost control, but she's not aware, of his stare.
Everything seems to intimidate him, with the strobe lights flashing, her body's jolting,
But cracking, as his eyes, spilt in two, if only she knew...
The curtain goes down on him again'
Everything seems to be closing in on her,
It feels just like she is being hunted,
But its all right, it's all good,
She's not aware, of his stare.
We've had this date from the beginning'
The curtain goes down on him again'
Who remains when the curtain falls'
Who remains when the curtain goes down...'

    General CommentI always thought the lyrics were a bit more sinster than that. more like he is watching this girl and almost stalker her but she doesn't realise until maybe it's too late?
    You know the whole "it feels just like she is being hunted" and "Who remains when the curtain falls?" the final showdown. What happens when they meet.

    General CommentYou retard.
    It's about just two randoms in a club.
    The guy likes a girl but the girl has no interest in him.
    They have both taken ecstasy or some disco drug.

    he's lost control, but she’s not aware, of his stare.
    Everything seems to intimidate him, with the strobe lights flashing, her body's jolting,
    But cracking, as his eyes, spilt in two, if only she knew...

    It says it quite clearly there.

    Good song :D

    General CommentI agree with the whole club/two people/drugs thing

    ''He’s confident, but he's not aware,
    She doesn't care.''
    When your 'under the influence' you're more confident to people you like and you don't notice they arn't interested.
    ''Everything seems to intimidate him, with the strobe lights flashing, her body's jolting'' the confusion when you're drunk or whatever with all the chaos in a nightclub.
    ''The curtain goes down on him again…''
    Im guessing this is like the closing of the whole chaotic 'show' that has been him making a fool out of himself? and he's failed once again to get the girl.

    Amazing song, amazing band. See them live they're just incredible!

    General Commenti love this song.
    its so well put together, it sounds so sad.
    but i always thought it was about a guy seeing a girl on the dance floor, and just watching her, stalking her.

    'It feels just like she is being hunted,'

    'We’ve had this date from the beginning…'

    sounds like he's going to rape her or something.
    really well put together, sounds asif he's the victim, when in the words, she is.

    General CommentMaybe a "Streetcar Named Desire" reference? talking about curtains falling, and basically quoting Stanley on the "We've had this date from the beginning", before he rapes Blanche.

    It's about rape (Y)

    LOL @ that. Not that rape is funny, just the context of him saying it.

    I agree that this song is about two randoms being on some disco rave drug, "He’s confident, but he's not aware,
    She doesn't care."
    That line is a classic.
    Love Enter Shikari, they're awesome.
