"Minimal" as written by Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe....
[Chorus]
M I N I M A L
Minimal (minimal), minimal (minimal)
M I N I M A L
Minimal (minimal), minimal

White on white
Light, sublime
Subliminal
The void is clean
A cell, but not for a criminal

Light and shade
Time and space

[Chorus]

Draw a line
More is less
Is minimal
The form of life
Decide something less decisional (decisional)

Light and shade
Time and space

[Chorus]

(Minimal, minimal)
Void is clean

An empty box
An open space
A single thought
Leaves a trace

An empty box
An open space
A single thought
Leaves a trace

Light (light), and shade (shade)
Time (time) and space

[Chorus: x2]

    General CommentI recall reading somewhere that this song was inspired in part by one of their impressions of friends who had gone all "minimal" in their homes and interior designs and style.

    As I recall, it wasn't intended in a positive way. They found the "minimal" fad more insipid than inspired.

    General CommentA very original song.

    It does seem that "minimal" wasn't intended in a positive way, especially because it reflects on the way such people act ("Decide something less decisional").

    But then it also has a good side to it ("A single thought Leaves a trace")...
