Fujiya, Miyagi x26

As I pretty
As of the band
Lowercase letter S
Spray painted red
It's spray painted red
Yeah, your little arms
Swing on monkey bars
In search of your plot
Like pixelated scraps of jazz mags in your head
Lights

Like pixelated scraps of jazz mags in your head
Lights, a career
Littered with ankle injuries
In the mid to late 1980s
As you're pretty
As of the band
Lowercase letter S
Like pixelated scraps of jazz mags in your head
Lights

Like pixelated scraps of jazz mags in your head
Watching
Unleashing begins
Next to zen, road crossings
My ancient old legs stick to leather and
Seed coverings
Watching
Unleashing begins
Through transparent things
Like pixelated scraps of jazz mags in your head
Lights

Like pixelated scraps of jazz mags in your head
Lights

Fujiya, Miyagi x34

Like pixelated scraps of jazz mags in your head
Lights

    General CommentIt's also 'Zebra Crossings', not 'Zap Road Crossings' or anything else.
    This also means that 'unleashing begins' becomes 'Belisha beacons', which are the names of the lollipop things that are on the front cover of the album and stand on the edge of zebra crossings. So

    'Watching
    Belisha beacons
    Next to zebra crossings
    My ancient old legs stick to leatherette
    seat coverings
    Watching
    Belisha beacons
    Through transparent things
    Like pixellated scraps of jazz mags in your head
    Lights'

    General CommentThose lyrics are a little bit wrong, though i cant blame anyone for getting them wrong:

    Fujiya, Miyagi x26

    As I pretty
    As of the band
    Lowercase letter S
    Spray painted red
    It's spray painted red
    Yeah, your little arms
    Swing on monkey bars
    In search of your plot
    Like pixelated scraps of chess mats in your head
    Lights

    Like pixelated scraps of chess mats in your head
    Lights, a career
    Littered with, ankle injuries
    In the mid to late 1980s
    As you're pretty
    As of the band
    Lowercase letter S
    Like pixelated scraps of chess mats in your head
    Lights

    Like pixelated scraps of chess mats in your head
    Watching
    Unleashing begins
    Next to zen, road crossings
    My ancient old legs, stick to leather and
    Seat coverings
    Watching
    Unleashing begins
    Through transparent things
    Like pixelated scraps of chess mats in your head
    Lights

    Like pixelated scraps of chess mats in your head
    Lights

    Fujiya, Miyagi x34

    Like pixelated scraps of chess mats in your head
    Lights



    It may well be that im wrong about the chess mat bit, but having watched the video and listened over and over again, i believe its the layering of the several vocals that produces that "x" sound...also what the hell is jazz maxx?

    General Commenti think the lyrics is this way:

    Fujiya, Miyagi x26

    As a pretty
    As of the bed
    Lowercase letter S
    Spray painted red
    It's spray painted red
    Yeah, your little arms
    Swing on monkey bars
    In such other plots
    Like pixelated scraps of chess mags in your head
    Lights

    Like pixelated scraps of chess mags in your head
    Lights, a career
    Littered to roof, ankle injuries
    In the mid to late 1980s
    As a pretty
    As of the bed
    Lowercase letter S
    Like pixelated scraps of chess mags in your head
    Lights

    Like pixelated scraps of chess mags in your head
    Watching
    Unleashing begins
    Next to Zap, road crossings
    My ancient old legs, stick to leather and
    Seat coverings
    Watching
    Unleashing begins
    Through transparent things
    Like pixelated scraps of chess mags in your head
    Lights

    Like pixelated scraps of chess mags in your head
    Lights

    Fujiya, Miyagi x34

    Like pixelated scraps of chess mags in your head

    General CommentHA! For the longest time I thought they were singing "like pixelated Chex Mix in your head". Gave me the munchies!

    General CommentIt sounds like "pixelated scraps of jazz mags..." to me. "Jazz mag" being a euphemism for porno mag.

    General CommentBardfly is correct. 'jazz mag' is British slang for a pornographic magazine. The song is a cryptic story about finding a porno mag as a school kid

    General CommentWhy do they say the name of the band so many times at the beginning of the song? It's not connected to the rest of the lyrics. Are they just trying to make sure we know how to pronounce it? Do they introduce all their songs by saying their band name again and again? Can you imagine a Radiohead song staring out with them saying "Radiohead, Radiohead, Radiohead..." again and again?
