"The North" as written by Gary Powell, Anthony Rossomando, Carl Barat and David Hammond....
Four more rotations and no one will hurt
These are the things I dream of
I've been thinking through the drinking
Though my confidence is shrinking

That I might be fine
The north would be so proud of you

Ooh, what would you do?
Ooh, when stars fall from the sky
And you're only two seconds from crying?

Paraffin, Anadin, sick as disguise
So we take our snappy patterns
And use them as knives
Now, there's nothing left for me to try
My own arrogance and humble pie

But I?ll be alright
The north would be so proud of you

So, I'll see you tomorrow, shall we call it one
Trying to get the sparks to light
Seeing as they've gone
You don't know how to value that
But I know how to value that

I think we'll be fine
The north would be so proud of you

Ooh, what would you do
Ooh, when stars fall from the sky
And you're only two seconds from crying?

    General CommentI think this song is almost ignored on such a good album. It's contrast to Chinese Dogs before it makes it easy to miss, but it's a sentimental little tune

    General Commentdoes anyone have any idea what this song is about?
    my idea is kinda vague but it's like about someone who is drunk or on drugs (anadin) and basically a bit out of it and he has just left some kind of relationship (try to get the sparks to light seen as they've gone and the references to being helpless and crying) but he is taking it in a more or less bittersweet way saying that "the north" would be so proud of you. i have no idea what the north is though :/
