"Cheap Like Sebastien" as written by and Julian Brown Andrew Whiteman....
The smallest truth is the brightest
A tiny undeniable fire
The smallest truth is found hiding
Youre scared but youre not a liar

You cheat like Sebastien
Cheat like Sebastien
Cheat like Sebastien

My life is desperate and private
I'm reckless there's one [?]
I spent that weekend in Niagara Falls
It was new, it was love, it was cheap
It was new, it was love, it was cheap

Cheap like Sebastian
Cheap like Sebastian
Cheap like Sebastian

La la la la
La la la la
La la la la

Substitute strata for status equate
All those foolish things I exclude
Awake we thought that was surreal
I stand still but I still dont feel

Feel like Sebastien
Feel like Sebastien
I feel like Sebastien

A true professional is [?]
So just do whatever they say
You know sometimes I just distract
The arrows of love in me
The arrows of love in me
The arrows of love in me

La la la la
La la la la
La la la la

Here comes Sebastien
La la la la
La la la la
La la la la

    General CommentMm another good one from AOH.

    It could be about... true honesty in life? Perceptions versus true realities...

    Something you can't deny, even though we always want to.

    General CommentI got a few lyric corrections for you that I noticed from listening to the song:
    I’m reckless there’s one [Gate iron key]
    All those foolish things [like sleep]
    A true professional is [batting it in so] just do whatever they say

    Other than that I'm glad you put this up. :)

    General CommentThis song is beautiful. I love it, it just makes me want to get up and dance. I especially like how the very start makes it seem like the song is going to go off into some completely different style. And that hypnotic guitar riff that starts out soft, hammers out really loud and then fades out again and again during the last two verses... fantastic.
    I have no idea what this song is about. I'm not even sure if I want to know.
    The only other thing I have to say is that I think the line "A true professional is batting her eyes" is actually "A true professional is bound to get in", hence the next line saying that you just should do what they say, anyway.

    General CommentHere's the actual lyrics from the booklet. However, there are some differences from what the booklet says and the actual words in the song...but only a few.

    The smallest truth shines the brightest
    A tiny undeniable fire
    The smallest truth was found hiding
    You're scared but you're not a liar
    Cheat like Sebastien/ cheat like Sebastien

    My life is desperate but it's private
    I'm reckless there's one gate I unkeep
    Spent the weekend in Niagara Falls
    It was new it was love it was cheap
    Cheap like Sebastien/ cheap like Sebastien

    Substitute status for strata and wait
    All those foolish things like sleep
    Awake we thought that was so real
    I stare and stare but still don't feel
    I feel like Sebastien/ I feel like Sebastien

    A true professional is bound and then acts
    So just do whatever they say
    Innocent times they just distract
    The arrows of love make pain
    The arrows of love make pain
    The arrows of love make pain & now

    Here comes Sebastien

    General CommentI've been told the song is about a character named sebastien in a cheap porn film the band watched while staying in niagra falls for a weekend and if you watch the music video Whiteman looks like he stole his clothes from a bad porno
