Take a glance in passing,
A meet of the eyes
Y'know the kind of thing,
We've done it before
I'm not judging you
I'm judging on whether its safe for us to talk.

We're wrapped in codes
We'll talk in jargon
Walk out in modes
Crash out in lightning

Block-codes-so-slow
Crash out in lightning!

You say if you fall
Your, taking me
To type, to crawl
You're breaking me.

You'll never let me see
What's wrapped inside
& You'd say
"I don't know you"

    General Comment"The story behind this came about when a friend was cutting themselves and being very open about. I'd seen some other friends do a similar thing, where they would cut themselves and go out in the cold with short sleeves on, so everyone can see. Anyway, they'd been calling us up saying they were going to hurt themselves because they were upset. So we arranged to meet the person to speak about what was happening, to try and help them, but they were smiling and laughing about our concern, as if to be happy about getting the attention. I felt sickened and used by this."

    General Comment"Lyrically it's about anonymity between people. Growing up in Aberdeen, a place where everybody knows each other and because it's small, everyone knows everything about what's happening in your life, or at least they think they do, they're very quick to judge you based on someone else's opinion. So when you see someone in the street, you're never totally sure if they are going to acknowledge you, it's just the kind of shit I can do without."
