"Sweet Dreams Sweet Cheeks" as written by and Tom Bromley Gareth Paisey....
When the smaller picture
Is the same as the bigger picture
You know that you're fucked
And you're trading paper cuts for splinters
You're out of luck

Like sharks don't sleep
And I don't take my eyes off you
The architecture's shit
And my cheeks are all ready and bruised

And it hurts as hard as a blow to the head
Or a smash to the skull or a knee to your chest
And sweet dreams sweet cheeks
O tomorrow o tomorrow

All these mercy killings have got my conscience spinning over (taking advantage)
And the buildings or neighborhood is lacking in soul character (Psychology montage)
We're burning five story buildings laying man traps at the fire exits
Playing feedback over tan oi systems
You look Desperate! You Look Pathetic!

And it hurts as hard as a blow to the head
Or a smash to the skull or a knee to your chest

And it hurts as hard as a blow to the head
Or a smash to the skull or a knee to your chest

And it hurts as hard as a blow to the head
Or a smash to the skull or a knee to your chest
And sweet dreams sweet cheeks
O tomorrow o tomorrow

And it hurts as hard as a blow to the head
Or a smash to the skull or a knee to your chest
And sweet dreams sweet cheeks
O tomorrow o tomorrow

One blink for yes Two blinks for no.
Sweet Dreams sweet cheeks we leave alone x10

    General Commenti'm thinking "my cheeks are all ready and bruised" might be "ruddy and bruised". makes a bit more sense, no?

    General CommentThe booklet for HONY says, without new paragraphs or anything, but I'll take my liberties:

    "When the smaller picture's the same as the bigger picture you know that you're fucked. When you're trading paper cuts for splinters you're out of luck, like sharks don't sleep and I don't take my eyes off you. The architecture's shit and my cheeks are all ruddy and bruised.

    ***And it hits as hard as a blow to the head or a smash to the skull or a knee to your chest. Sweet dreams; sweet cheeks, oh tomorrow, oh tomorrow, oh tomorrow.

    All these mercy killings have got my conscience spilling over and the buildings ornate but its lacking in soul and character. We're burning five story buildings laying man traps at the fire exits, playing feedback over tannoy systems. You look desperate, you look pathetic.

    We've paid off the judges and we're taking advantage, pleading our defence in binary and smiley apology montage. Like dignity is equal to desperation and self-effacement. We're holding on to our own grandeur with careful compliment placement.

    ***

    One blink for yes. Two blinks for no. Sweet dreams, sweet cheeks, we leave alone."

    General Commenthaha I dont know why, but that first stanza always gets a chuckle out of me.

    "When the smaller picture
    is the same as the bigger picture
    you know that you're fucked"

    How true is that? I love the beat and energy to this song. And to think when I first went to listen to them, I was under the impression that they were spanish..haha.

    General CommentIt doesn't really make sense with the rest of the song…but the line "One blink for 'yes', two blinks for 'no'" from the last stanza reminds me of the novel/film The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, in which the paralyzed protagonist uses this blinking system to communicate.

    General CommentWhen I listen to this song honestly the first thing that comes to mind is sympathy for a person on life support, and the debate whether or not to keep that person alive past a certain point. I doubt that's it, just some of the lyrics make me think of that.

    General Commentmy version doesnt have this "We've paid off the judges and we're taking advantage, pleading our defence in binary and smiley apology montage. Like dignity is equal to desperation and self-effacement. We're holding on to our own grandeur with careful compliment placement."

    but having read that, i completely agree with 'robbyisstupid'

    "Like dignity is equal to desperation and self-effacement."
    dignity is referring to killing them, when people are in comas or whatnot, people argue that they should be allowed to die in dignity (euthanasia)
