"Uncomfortably Slow" as written by Adam Stuart Argyle and Newton Faulkner....
Traveling again
I know exactly how it's gonna end
The routine daydream starts as I get off

I'm holding up the queue
Because my ticket won't go through
I know it should be simple but it's not

So, don't take my photograph
'Cause I don't wanna know
How it looks to feel like this

As cars and people pass
It feels like standing still but I know
I'm just moving uncomfortably slow, yeah, slow

Some thing's gotta change
I know I'm lucky in a lot of ways
So, why do I want more than what I have'

Brace myself to hear the lies
I wonder if they know that I don't get the jokes
But I just need to laugh

So, don't take my photograph
'Cause I don't wanna know
How it looks to feel like this

As cars and people pass
It feels like standing still but I know
I'm just moving uncomfortably slow, yeah, slow
I'm just moving uncomfortably slow

Down, there's infinite detail
When you break it down
It all becomes simple, how'
It all become clearer, now

So, don't take my photograph
'Cause I don't wanna know
How it looks to feel like this

As cars and people pass
It feels like standing still but I know
I'm just moving subconsciously

One day I guess I'll be
The man that you think you see
I'm just moving uncomfortably slow, yeah, slow

    General CommentSuch a moving song!!.Cant believe no ones commented on it yet! To me i tink its definately about a guy who like doesnt feel like he belongs anywhere, and he travelling around looking for who he is and until he finds himself his path will be uncomfortable. Cant wait to see him in novemeber!!

    General CommentI agree with on and on, it's someone who has an outward appearance of being complete. Really they want (or need) to travel much further in life, but everything is happening so painfully slowly

    General Commentit's about the london underground. i know it's kind of redundant to say, but i think it is. It's one of those songs that deliberatly sounds deep but it's just supposed to be a ****take.

    General CommentThis song is definately about Depression/Personality Disorder in my view. If you have ever suffered from either you will understand. The feeling of not knowing who you are or where you are going and being able to pretend to everyone else that you are ok and yet on the inside feeling so detached from the world around you.

    Having a Borderline Personality and having suffered depression i must say that this is the most spot on feel from a song that i have come accross for years!

    General Commentto me its definately about depression. i don't suffer from it personally but to me this song is like the sufferer is desperately trying to explain how they feel.

    General Commentit's definately about depression. Whenever I'm having one of my really bad days I put this on to remind me that I'm not alone and other people feel like this too.

    I was going to do a line by line breakdown of what i think it means but i dont think it's necesary. I think it really speaks for itself.

    General CommentI agree- this song is about depression.
    "I'm just moving uncomfortably slow" and "So don't take my photograph
    Cos I don't wanna know how it looks
    To feel like this" give it away.
    When I'm depressed I move so slowly. And I definately don't want to know what I look like when I'm that low.
