"This Fine Social Scene" as written by Henry Binns, Sam Hardaker and Sia Kate I. Furler....
Blossom lipped ladies and men with a gleam in their eyes
Fat happy babies sit on their born thin mother's thighs
Picture a vow
Picture well

I couldn't see the cracks in this fine social scene
I couldn't find the fault with this whole pantomime

All others laughing the jokes by the host
He's no man

All others dancing in couples to these session bands
Wearing smiles
Hot colt 45s

I couldn't see the cracks in this fine social scene
I couldn't find the fault with this whole pantomime

    General CommentSia is trying to emphasise the plastic-society we live in ("this whole pantomime") to her all of society seems fake.

    "Wearing their smiles and colt .45's" would suggest the hypocrisy of our society and the title and hook of this song seems sarcastic.

    General Commentand is implying a current sight of the cracks and faults signifying change.

    "dancing in couples
    to the social bells"- a metaphor for people adapting to social truths.

    General Commentlike much of zero 7's songs, it talks about how this world is such a bore with the everyday goings on, and how no one pauses enough to blink and look at the bigger picture
