"like it or not" as written by and Cameron Bird....
Wa wa wa

I'll tell you anything but not the truth
My Mum thinks she's in love with you and I'm not
And just to be sure do you wanna ride
Let me tell you something about Christmas time when it's hot

When we were cornered
In a bid to scare
I kept you from my reaches
Didn't mean to care
What we got
Do you like it or not?

I'm changing all your pills to vitamins
You got me eating from your hand
Girl we're locked
Round about 10 with a love tattoo
You left me in yr cell
The things you do
When you're rot

Wa wa wa

When we were cornered
In a bid to scare
I kept you from my reaches
Didn't mean to care
What we got
Do you like it or not?

I'll tell you anything but not the truth
My Mum thinks she's in love with you and I'm not
And just to be sure do you wanna ride
Let me tell you something about new york when it's hot

Enormously Love
No It's true
There's never been a knife that cuts me half as deep as you
And wide for you
Despite the dreams that others grew

    General CommentDefinitely a slow-burner this album, but this one is very good. Seems to be about someone who doesn't think they care about someone that much but ends up realising they do.

    General CommentI think it's "enormously low," rather than enormously love

    General CommentTo me this song is about a girl that he was kind of 'paired up' with, in the sense that its that girl that if he wanted it he could have her pretty easily, and his parents 'love' her, but he thinks he doesn't. I think it has an ambiguous conclusion the "There's never been a knife that cuts me half as deep as you
    and wide for you" could be referring that he fell in love with her, or can't stand her. I would assume the falling in love part because it makes more sense in the context of the song.

    General CommentI think this song is about a relationship where the mother of the singer doesn't approve. Hence the whole, "I'll tell you anything but not the truth
    My Mum thinks she's in love with you and I'm not"

    He's being sarcastic, his mother doesn't approve but he's madly inlove for the girl, the title of the song, like it or not, is like him saying eff you to his mom, as in the relationship will continue regardless of her approval. And it's evident again at the end, "Enormously Love
    No It's true
    There's never been a knife that cuts me half as deep as you
    and wide for you
    despite the dreams that others grew"

    The dreams others grew being his mom wanting him to love someone else.

    General CommentAt their show at the Enmore (earlier this year, maybe last year, i forget) they said that this song was about growing up in a country-ish town. I'm not sure how it fits in with the song though...

    General CommentThey failed at sounding like trumpets.
    Every time I listen to this song I skip through the beginning because it just bugs me. Other than that I adore this song.
