"Pictures" as written by and Charlie Mitchell....
Light, of course,
Like a flicker in my left eye
Push, move,
Could be perfect if you walk by


I've got lots of pictures in my head,
You'd better not turn off the projector ... ooohhh
And I've got lots of pictures in my head,
You'd better not save them all for later

Maybe I, oh get me on fire,
Could take your picture, oh you could get one too
And maybe I, oh get me on fire!
But keep me on, don't switch me off ... ooohhh


You can't fight,
Oh what we do what we
Can't do it solo,
But you've got what tickles for me


I've got lots of pictures in my head,
You'd better not turn off the projector ... ooohhh
And I've got lots of pictures in my head,
You'd better not save them all for later


Maybe I, oh get me on fire,
Could take your picture, oh you could get one too
And maybe I, oh get me on fire,
But keep me on, don't switch me off ...


Maybe I, oh get me on fire,
Could take your picture, oh you could get one too
And maybe I, oh get me on fire,
But keep me on, don't switch me off ...


Keep me on, don't switch me off ...
Keep me on, don't switch me off ...

    General CommentOf course the lyrics are pathetic zoomzoom, its a dance song, and as such, has the underlying roots of it's lyrics embedded in the fact that the protagonist is on some kind of drug (ecstacy, acid possibly) and is therefore seeing 'pictures'.

    My favourite bands are tool and NIN, though i have recently gotten into the dance genre through going out clubbing.

    'keep me on', keep me high, can be noted as part of the theme. then the whole 'taking pictures' is part of the metro 'look at me, i've come here all dressed up for this night out, lets take pictures'. Even dance songs can be deep when you look at them (though not usually :) )
