"High Rise" as written by Reuben Hoong Bun Wu, Daniel Hunt and Helen Linsay Marnie....
Black sun rising
New day dawning
I'm defying
I'm destroying

We are on the same high you and I
Open on the same page no sunrise

Tender talons
Chase horizons
Masquerading
Black sun rising

We are on the same high you and I
Open on the same page no sunrise

Silent movers
Up and towards them
Perfect timing
Hello morning

We are on the same high you and I
Open on the same page no sunrise

Sun is fading
Darkness falling
New day dawning
Last sun rising

We are on the same high you and I
Open on the same page no sunrise

We are on the same high you and I
Open on the same page no sunrise

We are on the same high you and I
Open on the same page no sunrise

    General CommentI think, Danny once said it was inspired by a novel he read about some people that were living in a building and the floor they were inhabiting, described and corresponded to their social status. And they start fighting with each other at some point. It was something like that...
    My own interepretation is that the song is about Ladytron, the band itself. They wrote it for themselves, it's a sort of selfdescription that pocesses certain self-analysis but very indifferent to the whole status quo. It's also a kind of presentation of the band and that's why I think it's the 1st song from the album, not just because it's energetic and etc. I might be completely wrong tho'.

    My InterpretationThe () is my interpretation

    Black sun rising
    (You make your sun black, cause you let the dark rule)
    New day dawning
    (New day darkens by your coldness)
    I'm defying
    I'm destroying
    (You defy and destroy everything by being cold)

    We are on the same high you and I
    (You rate yourself with another “friend” that has same self ignorance as high so you can low the other you that you walk over, so you can raise yourself up, in your dreams about yourself, you’re quite cold)
    Open on the same page no sunrise
    (You open a new page for yourself to raise yourself up and there will be no sunrise as you wish with you’re cold attitude)

    Tender talons
    Chase horizons
    (You shape yourself)
    Masquerading
    (And play your part)
    Black sun rising
    (You make your sun black, cause you let the dark rule)

    We are on the same high you and I
    (You rate yourself with another “friend” that has same self ignorance as high so you can low the other you that you walk over, so you can raise yourself up, in your dreams about yourself, you’re quite cold)
    Open on the same page no sunrise
    (You open a new page for yourself to raise yourself up and there will be no sunrise as you wish with you’re cold attitude)

    Silent movers
    Up and towards them
    Perfect timing
    Hello morning
    (You win over yourself)

    We are on the same high you and I
    (You rate yourself with another “friend” that has same self ignorance as high so you can low the other you that you walk over, so you can raise yourself up, in your dreams about yourself, you’re quite cold)
    Open on the same page no sunrise
    (You open a new page for yourself to raise yourself up and there will be no sunrise as you wish with you’re cold attitude)

    Sun is fading
    (Your mean attitude will take way the sun from you)
    Darkness falling
    (And darkness will shape you)
    New day dawning
    Last sun rising

    We are on the same high you and I
    (You rate yourself with another “friend” that has same self ignorance as high so you can low the other you that you walk over, so you can raise yourself up, in your dreams about yourself, you’re quite cold)
    Open on the same page no sunrise
    (You open a new page for yourself to raise yourself up and there will be no sunrise as you wish with you’re cold attitude)

    We are on the same high you and I
    (You rate yourself with another “friend” that has same self ignorance as high so you can low the other you that you walk over, so you can raise yourself up, in your dreams about yourself, you’re quite cold)
    Open on the same page no sunrise
    (You open a new page for yourself to raise yourself up and there will be no sunrise as you wish with you’re cold attitude)

    We are on the same high you and I
    (You rate yourself with another “friend” that has same self ignorance as high so you can low the other you that you walk over, so you can raise yourself up, in your dreams about yourself, you’re quite cold)
    Open on the same page no sunrise
    (You open a new page for yourself to raise yourself up and there will be no sunrise as you wish with you’re cold attitude)
