"Detox" as written by and Erik Hans/farm Ohlsson....
She's saying, you're lost
She thinks it's time for you to detox
Too many tunes inside your head
Why don't you fill it up with her instead

She's not playing, but you are
She wants romance but you want guitars
Your head was all like you prefer
But you should have lend your ears to her

You're an addict to the audio
A chronic record lover
Who feeds on stereo

Just like the meat you eat
The booze you choose
The nicotine, the coffee
And the sugars that you need so

You're not ready for detox
Turn on the radio

It's not healthy, you're not fit
She says if you don't quit then she'll split
She needs silence and not your noise
Your habit's nothing she enjoys

And you're a nut for every kind of sound
A chronic vinyl player
Who can't stop spinning 'round

Just like the meat you eat
The booze you choose
The nicotine, the coffee
And the sugars that you need so

You're not ready for detox
Turn on the radio

    General CommentI heard that it is about an addiction to music. I just heard it for the first time this morning. VERY different from anything they have done before. Kinda poppy but still pretty good

    General CommentYes, I listened to the song at .5 speed to try and get all the lyrics, but the parts with the three dashes are where I missed it, not to mention some minor screw ups elsewhere.

    But the song is definitely about having an addiction to music.

    I uploaded that so you can hear the vocals much clearer. This is what I thought they were (corrections within *'s):

    ------

    *She's saying* you're lost
    She thinks it's time for you to detox
    Too many tunes inside your head
    Why don't you fill it up with her instead

    She's not playing
    But you are
    She wants her man
    But you want guitars
    You have a song like you prefer
    But you should have lent your ears to her

    You're an attitude of audio
    A chronic record lover
    Who *feels inside* the stereo

    Just like the meat
    You eat
    The booze
    You choose
    The nicotine
    The coffee
    And the *sugars* that you need, so
    You're not ready for detox
    Turn on the radio
    Turn on the radio

    It's not healthy
    You're not fit
    She says if you don't quit
    Then she splits
    She needs silence
    And not your noise
    Your habit's nothing she enjoys

    And you're not offering any kind of sound (*this line sounds wrong to me*)
    A chronic vinyl player
    *Who can't stop* spinning round

    Just like the meat
    You eat
    The booze
    You choose
    The nicotine
    The coffee
    And the *sugars* that you need, so
    You're not ready for detox
    Turn on the radio
    Turn on the radio
    Turn on the radio

    Just like the meat
    You eat
    The booze
    You choose
    The nicotine
    The coffee
    And the *sugars* that you need, so
    You're not ready for detox
    Turn on the radio

    Just like the meat
    You eat
    The booze
    You choose
    The nicotine
    The coffee
    And the *sugars* that you need, so
    You're not ready for detox
    Turn on the radio
    Turn on the radio

    Turn on the radio...

    General CommentYou've almost got it. I think its
    She wants *romance*
    But you want guitars

    and

    A chronic record lover
    who *feeds off* stereo

    I'm pretty sure about the first one. Not as sure about the second one

    General CommentCheers ojuice, what you said definitely seems correct.

    bateman, you missed just one line:

    "A cast that's spinning 'round"

    Should be

    "Who can't stop spinning 'round"

    I think anyway, I could be wrong.

    General CommentI'll try that out.. what technique did you use to enhance the vocals? I have an advanced CD now and wouldn't mind putting up the lyrics a little early, just in time for the Australia release.

    General Commenti think its about
    hes addicted to music
    and his girlfriend is jealous of his addiction
    and it causes a mess,
    so he does what he always does when he has a problem..
    turns on the radio
