"Big Big Love (Fig. 1)" as written by Yannis Barnabas Emanuel Philippakis, Jack William Bevan, James Smith, Edwin Thomas Congreave and Walter James Morrison Gervers....
[Chorus: x3]
See how the skulls we built
Fill, all the towers we fill.
Crush down fury red
It cracks in our hearts and heads.

Smile Sticks a kiss
That could stop it.

Smile Sticks a kiss
That could stop it.

Smile Sticks a kiss
That could stop it.

Smile Sticks a kiss

Smile Sticks a kiss

Smile Sticks a kiss
That could stop it.

Smile Sticks a kiss

Smile Sticks a kiss

All could be well

[Chorus]

Place we can hide.

Ow, Electric shocks, no! [Repeat x8]

[Chorus: x3]

Smile sticks a kiss That could stop [Repeat x2]
Smile sticks a kiss
Smile mile sticks a kiss [Repeat x2]

All could be well

Ow, Electric shocks, no! [Repeat x4]

    General Commentscrap that.wont let me delete the comment. lyrics are correct, although do not sound anything like it!
    still best song on the album.

    i think it means something about a relationship that saves someone from disillusion?

    General Commentoh is this on the album
    i haven't been able to purchase it yet
    i thought t wouldn't be as it was the mathletics vinyl b-side
    but i do absolutly love it

    it means something to me because when i met jack from the band after i had passed out at their gig thats what he kept saying to me and signed my ticket with it

    i think the song is about just having a wreckless love with someone that you just need them and lust after them

    i think its about building up a relationship and then something bad happens and it breaks your heart but with "a smile sticks a kiss that could stop it. "

    General CommentI think all of you are getting confused. Fig #1 is on the Mathletics B-Side Vinyl. Big Big Love Fig #2 is on the album. To my knowledge, Fig #2 has added lyrics. I think its about building a relationship, but when ever there is an argument he is worried about losing her/him (let's be open minded lol), or he is just in general worried about losing the partner ("besides you sleep I SLIDE" , sliding away) but everything's ok when she smiles, which is like a kiss, or when she kisses.

    I know that's vague, cheesy and kinda on the spot, but it's something...

    General Commentand these lyrics aren't correct. there is definitely something about
    'fell all the times we fell'
    or
    'fail all the times we fail'
    or
    'fell all the times we fail'

    haha hard to decipher but pretty sure its one of them!
