"Zoom!" as written by Huw Bunford, Cian Ciaran, Dafydd Ieuan, Guto Pryce and Gruff Rhys....
Took you to a movie but you moved away
Froze into a standstill my feet turned to clay
Looked into the sky for some good advice
A curious shadow angle poised
Circled twice then tossed me a carcass

Sold you a Dalmatian but the spots fell off
Pooled them all together as a hairy moth
Bred it with a lion but it flew away
Now it chases drones around the sky
Growls and grunts 'til you feed it a blemish

I can't get enough of it
Kiss me with apocalypse
An instant hit

Saw the Virgin Mary she was crying blood
Tears congregate into a mighty flood
Give her some directions to a specialist
An eye doctor to help her cyst
She took the wrong turn to the family planning

Saw Lord Lucan riding Shergar to the shops last night
Couldn't be positive in the candle light
Chased them in a Mustang to a Kwik Save till
Searched for words to fit the bill
Dug myself a hole then I fell into a vacuum

I can't get enough of it
Kiss me with apocalypse
An instant hit

    General CommentI think it's just sort of surrealist and doesn't have to much of a concrete meaning.

    Mostly it's just weird imagery, I think. But there could be a basic plot. I can see it a few ways.

    One would be maybe about a girl he likes, but she doesn't really like him back. Like, he took her to the movie but she moved away, and the dalmation's spots fell off. He was trying hard for her, but it wasn't good enough, or she didn't respond. And that's why the kissing is with apocalypse, which is not a good thing. But he still can't get enough of her, even though she lets him down.

    Another way I can see it is it has to do with drugs. Sort of similar Something for the Weekend. It could explain some of the imagery. And how he keeps coming back to it, but also has a bad relationship with it.

    But I don't really think there is much of a basic plot.

    The original version had lyrics they had written on the way to a Peel session. Here are the lyrics for that one:


    Knocked out cold in a circular movement, drowned
    Stabbed in the back of a cut in the head
    Left for dead, dead and really unsteady

    Ate a lot of it again
    King Kong, take the money and then pay for it
    Zoom back just a little

    Ate a lot of it again
    King Kong, ate the money and then paid for it
    Zoom in, zoom back a little

    Monster equipped with a stick feel mud in carpet boots
    Tasseled flares, always trip me up with worst concussion
    Locked out cold, fucking marvellous

    General CommentAm I the only one to notice the pun in the line "Kiss me with apoca-lips"?

    General CommentI thought this song was about smack and the destructive effects it has on people: "I can't get enough of it/Kiss me with apocalypse/An instant hit" seems to suggest that and all of the verses are about some sort of emotional collapse. The lyrics are incredibly obscure though, particularly the Dalmation/lion/moth verse.
