Tell me again about that boy named "Junior Band"
He had the energy of a wildcat, and wide open eyes
his hands moved constantly - dancing here, stopping there
Never was still to catch his breath

What happened to "Junior Band" the teenager?
His voice broke, his birthday suit felt tight all over
Kissing with tongues became a preoccupation

The sun stretched out and sang golden to him
His eyes became leaden lidded
It crossed his mind never to move
So delicious was this place and feeling

He was off like a dream
Dizzy from the heat, but oh! so content
He felt like he was in love
Or that it would feel like this

He was off like a dream
Dizzy from the heat, but oh! so content
He felt like he was in love
Or that it would feel like this
He felt like he was in love
Or that it would feel like this

The sun moved away to the other side of the sky
Cold seeped through the green
Underneath grew moist with the night
Junior band lay still, his back becoming wet
He felt scared

Did "Junior Band" live happily ever after?
He lay through the ice and the north wind
Realising that they were but a different face of his known sun
The recollection of the moments urging long ago forced him onto his feet
Looking into the mirror "Junior Band" saw he was a man
He took the title "Robots In Disguise"

The sun stretched out and sang golden anew
Our hero stared her out of the sky
It crossed his mind to ever to move
To delicious places, feelings

He was off on the ride
Burning from the heat, but oh! what intent
He knew the shape of love
Looked like this

He was of on the ride
Burning from the heat, but oh! what intent
He knew the shape of love
Looked like this
He knew the shape of love
Looked like this

Va-t-en! Il faut que tu me quittes!
Sois explorateur avant que la mort te prenne...

    General CommentI love this song so much!
    Yeah, I think it's about growing up or growing into the band they are now.
    It's a really brilliant song and the lyrical content is amazing!

    General Commenta direct translation of those last lines is

    Goes-T! It is necessary that you me free!
    Would be browser before death takes to you…

    adjust it slightly are there we go. French is prettier than english though.

    I love that line. It's like it's saying that the hard times you may go through it just a different part of the good times. It's lovely.

    General CommentHaha, I actually thought they said "Julian Barratt" instead of "Junior Band" at first xD

    Song Meaningi think in this song they are talking about how they've matured and grown as a band, but they're using the idea of a boy changing into a man during puberty as a metaphore.
    possibly.
