"Bunker or Basement" as written by and Fionn Regan....
Wait your turn
You always go for the jugular
Like a juggernaut
Spinning off the asphalt
We wait around pacing round this table
You arrive on time to help us lift the trophy
Bunker or basement the bills pile up
The street level it's a mining disaster
The options are blocked
Wait there girl you leave this place like a smuggler
Across the borders and the trenches we dug
We wait around in the resident's lounge
You arrive on time for the family photograph
Bunker or basement the bills pile up
The sea view never was an option
Below sea level
It's a mining disaster
The options are blocked
You always go for the jugular
Like a juggernaut
Spinning off the asphalt
We wait around pacing round this table
You arrive on time to help us lift the trophy
Bunker or basement the bills pile up
The street level it's a mining disaster
The options are blocked
Wait there girl you leave this place like a smuggler
Across the borders and the trenches we dug
We wait around in the resident's lounge
You arrive on time for the family photograph

Bunker or basement the bills pile up
The sea view never was an option
Below sea level
It's a mining disaster
The options are blocked

    General CommentThis song is incredible. I usually end up listening to this one over and over when I listen to this album.
    As for the meaning, it seems to be about someone who went to war and was unable to cope with life after the war had ended. The two last lines of the main verses seem to be about a meeting with other veterans ('lifting the trophy' which would be the memories of the war, maybe? and taking the 'family photograph' of their squad, probably).

    General CommentOh, I think it's about a long-winded marriage falling apart.
