Fear of an enemy a hand to a face
Words I overhear
Stop starting histories a code in a look
What's that number? (what's that number?)

Red light, panic, terror, error! (error!)
I'll cut her from ear to ear
Blue funk, panic, terror, error! (error!)
I'll cut her, I'll cut her,
I'll cut her, cut her, (fuck her) cut her

Crazed by my make believe a tongue down a throat
The grip on your arse
Tales that you tell to me a touch of your nose
Why did you stammer? (why did you stammer?)

Red light, panic, terror, error! (error!)
I'll cut ya from ear to ear
Blue funk, panic, terror, error! (error!)
I'll cut ya, I'll cut you, I'll cut you, cut you, cut you, cut ya

I'm your slave got to taste
The tears, the tears, the tears
I'm your slave got to taste

I'm your slave got to taste
The tears, the tears, the tears
I'm your slave got to taste

Red light, panic, terror, error! (error!)
I'll cut ya, I'll cut you, I'll cut you, cut you, cut you, cut ya

I'm your slave got to taste
The tears, the tears, the tears
I'm your slave got to taste

I'm your slave got to taste
The tears, the tears, the tears
I'm your slave got to taste

(Error!)

    General CommentI think this song is about the moment you find out that your partner has cheated on you, and the immediate anger that you feel.. could be wrong
    Amazing song tho!

    General Commentsecondhandsky - that's how the lyrics read in the cd sleeve. i think it's probably "hidden" under another "I'll cut her up".

    i've got to say, this song is so amazing. it blows me away.

    but i think there's an extension to what woowah has said - i don't think it's so much about the moment you find out about cheating, but being in a relationship when you know it's going to happen. perhaps again and again, quite often, but sticking with them despite it.
    "i'm your slave, got to taste the tears"

    General CommentThis is such ana amazing song. Brilliant to work out to aswell. Haha.
    I think this is about a suspicion that someone is cheating on you. Seeing as this is Robots, It's obviously Noel, and the Geldofs. See:

    Fear of an enemy (The Geldofs are the enemy to Dee)
    a hand to a face (Dee hit Noel?)
    words I overhear (Rumers he's cheated)
    Stop starting histories (A history of cheating?)
    a code in a look what's that number? (random girl's numbers in his phone?)

    Crazed by my make believe (Again, rumers)
    a tongue down a throat (Snogging the geldofs)
    the grip on your arse (Who hasn't had a grip on his arse?)
    Tales that you tell to me a touch of your noise why did you stammer? (The excuses he tells her, and she suspects he is lying because he stammered.)
    I'm your slave got to taste the tears (She still loves him through whatever, so can't leave him, hence his slave, but she cries because of his behaviour.)

    I think i did a pretty good job at that. ^_^

    General CommentI agree completely. This is about the whole Noel/Geldofs thing 100%. It's good to see a reacton from Dee, like the way she felt about it.
    I love how Dee wants to 'cut her'. She's a tough cookie!

    General CommentI don't know much about all these Dee/Noel rumours but I have to admit that my interpretation of this song is kinda like Sarahx3. Except, I actually thought that "Crazed by my make believe" is more like a person being a bit paranoid (because it's "My make believe") in the sense that she starts to imagine things:
    "a tongue down a throat, the grip on your arse"
    perhaps she doesn't trust him anymore coz he cheated and she now starts doubting him every time she thinks he's being a little suspicious. ("why did you stammer?")

    I really like this song though, it's so great. I would like to point out bits that I especially love but the whole thing is just awesome in my opinion :D

    General Commentummmm
    if it is about the whole noel/geldof girls rumour...

    does ne1 eles get the feeling that there must be alot more to it than rumour if the robots are taking the time to make a clear message they will "F*ck up" some1 who messes with dees BF?
    althou equally it might be sues too!
    Chris Corner is totaly hot!

    it could be about that or it cud just be being totaly fed up with the girls who go crazy over Noel Fielding, i mean it must hard to see your rather obviously flirty bf surrounded by young, pretty, up for it girls..... (even if most of them are well under age!)
    maybe part of it is also about being really insecure?!?
