"No Complaints" as written by and Hansen....
We are aimless
And our target is an empty wall
We're out of patience
With smiles that cut across her face
No complaints
But I wish I had my top of my brain
I'd like to walk
But the sun doesn't know we're awake

We're in spaceships
Take a visit to the Pyranees
Paid vacations
Send a brochure from the agency
No complaints
But my girlfriend dug a ditch in my room
Walking papers and a hole
Straight out from my shoes

No complaints
But it's harder
To believe in the truth
She'll write a message
On a billboard
And I'll send it to you

We feel painless
Check the status on the info line
In some ways tainted
Radiation from the factory
No complaints
But it's overrated, that's for sure
Take a bus back
From Little Rock, Arkansas
Or Modesto
That's where my dog comes from*

    General CommentJeez, no one has commented on the new songs... I don't even see lyrics for "New Round". That's my favorite.

    This is one of my favorite tracks off the new album.

    General Commentthis is my fav off the album...at this time.

    I'm not sure on the meaning, but you can't really be sure on any beck song... but this one seems less random than his usual crazy lyrics.
    this is my favorite line:
    "No complaints
    But it's overrated, that's for sure"
    It seems like a good line about life in general.

    General CommentI love this song. It makes me want to skip down the street like I'm in a disney special.

    Oh Beck.

    For the longest time, I thought he was saying "We Are English" in the first line.

    haha makes more sense now.

    General CommentOh, and marpz17, he's talking about a real dog.

    If you listen to the track carefully, there's a dog whining in the background.

    ahaha.

    General Commentyou people need to realize one thing about becks most recent songs...they have scientology references all about.... " were in spaceships, take a visit to the pyrenees" ....if you do some research you will find that the scientologists believe in an ancient race of aliens called the marcabians, and that one of the last places on earth they implanted was in the pyrenees mountains, also it is believed that te galactic lord xenu is in a pirson located in these mountains....i love beck. but this stuff is insane
