"No Right Angles" as written by and Ben Lee....
I've been thinking 'bout the straight and narrow
Slip sliding round the back of my hand
Keep turning and its almost tomorrow
I'll find a way to make you understand
There are no right angles in my life
No right angles in my life

Right now I'm hearing nothing but silence
High beams are on - I can feel you
Every piece contains a little bit of violence
And you've changed so much but its still you
No right angles in my life
No right angles in my life

So breathe
Feel the open space
Leave it all behind
Coming into grace
No right angles in my life
There are no right angles in my life

Suspicious minds and you're back on the warpath
All the things you think are up my sleeve
Though you tell me that I'm just like a circle
Somehow you still don't believe
There are no right angles in my life
There are no right angles in my life

So dream
Let your body play
Anyone in need
Give it all away
No right angles in my life
There are no right angles in my life

I've been thinking 'bout the straight and narrow
Slip sliding round the back of my hand
Keep turning and its almost tomorrow
Find a way to make you understand

Please
Taste the sea you sail
Baby I believe
There's no way you can fail
No right angles in my life
There are no right angles in my life
There are no right angles in my life

    General CommentI think what Ben is trying to say in this song is that in life there are no definites. There is no black and white issues. He believes in the grey area. Some girl thinks she knows him too well but he's trying to say that he's unpredictable, just like life. This whole album is about experiencing things you want to experience, not what someone tells you is right. Sorry if this seems a little bit overblown, it's just what I think. :) Good song by the way.

    General CommentLike musicloverisme said, this song is probably about a girl. He wants to keep going forward instead of going around in circles and going back to the girl. He doesn't care if she's changed, he can't go back to her. He doesn't really seem to hate her, but kind of wishes her good luck and to have fun when she goes on her seperate way.

    General CommentThis is what I personally got from the song: A right angle is a 90-degree angle which looks like "L", this "L" shape makes me think of a life that is very narrow, close minded, straight forward, black and white. Like someone leading a careful life, afraid of taking risks and chances, lives day-to-day by strict guidelines. Then later on in the song it shows that he or she no longer lives such a life “no right angles in my life” and is trying to prove verbally to someone. I know this meaning is probably not what Ben is trying to say, but this is what it means to me.

    My InterpretationBen mentioned at a concert that this song was inspired by the grid system in New York City, and how no one's life is that perfect. We don't always go in those clear-cut directions.
