"President" as written by and Chris Corner....
They pull our strings, the animals
They blind, they breed the hate
Under their wing we're scientists
We swallow what they fake

For all you lonely boys
I will be president
In all you sons of men
I can be accident

Most fall in line, they do the dance
And salute the safest thing
Bought with their lives, cry and socialize
And throw all the beauty away

For all you lonely boys
I will be president
In all you sons of men
I can be accident

    My InterpretationCould "Accident" be "Exedent" or "ascendant" ?


    Ex´e`dent
    a. 1. Eating out; consuming.



    as·cen·dant also as·cen·dent

    1. Inclining or moving upward; ascending or rising.
    2. Dominant in position or influence; superior.
    n.
    1. The position or state of being dominant or in control: a conservative policy currently in the ascendant.
    2. In astrology, the point of the ecliptic or the sign of the zodiac that rises in the east at the time of a person's birth or other event.
    3. An ancestor.

    General Commenti think it is about society being controlled and abused by politics " They pull our strings
    The animals
    They blind, they breed the hate...etc" .Generally the song could be all about it ,but when the chorus comes it makes me think about somebody who wants to be a guide for all those who are lost in life and do not agree with common points of view - these are those lonely boys. that someone is an accident to society, the society doesn't really understand him in every way

    General Commentokay, english is not my mother tongue and i've never been to england or sg but i have a doubt about the "we're scientists" line. to me it actually sounds like "we sigh in tears" and this matches a bit better with "we swallow what they fake". do i make any sense?

    General Comment"Must fall in line and do the dance and salute the safest pain. Bored with their lives." Is what I hear. And that's what it looks like when he sings it. : )
