"Scratch Your Name" as written by and Shingai Elizabeth Maria/smith Shoniwa....
Inside spotlight, fire is burning in my eyes
In 2025 there'll be fantasy costumes for your psyche
We had a deal we had a sign we had a deal that was broken
I'm not fooling around, fooling around,
Over hills under ground break it open

Scratch your name
Into the fabric
Of this world
Before you go
The skin will tear
Under the pressure
Make it deep
So it always shows

In a trance petrified to dance
You wait in the wings for your curtain call
On your marks come on, get set go People defend your sovereignty
We had a deal, you were divine We had a deal that was no
King I'm not fooling around,
Mr merry go round Or convulse on the floor like a rabid

Scratch your name
As true as love is insane

Scratch your name
Into the fabric
Of this world
Before you go
The skin will tear
Under the pressure
Make it deep
So it always shows
(X3)

    General CommentShingai is big on that kind of stuff, she talks about making a change in music and people and how she wants to be known and The Noisettes want to be known.

    General CommentShingai's voice kinda reminds me of Karen O from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. And this song is clearly about leaving a mark on the world, making a difference.
