"Mona Lisa Overdrive" as written by Will Drummond, Nicholas James Wilson, Declan Xavier Melia and Matthew Vincent O'gorman....
He'll be dead in an hour
Here's your phone back, a taxi is coming now
So let me know when you want to leave
We'll melt the plastic and find out what's underneath

You've got to kill your doubt
Open your mouth up and spit all the white noise out
And half past ten I call back, I put on war paint and act like I never asked
My blood turns white
I can't believe what you just said
I've been through this before, i hoped I never would again
As girls shine like magazines
Avoid us falling like masonry
I had to asked myself, what are you thinking
My mouth is filling with glass, what are you thinking
My blood is laced with caffeine
Melt through the plastic and find out what's underneath
The music is louder than god
The future is rushing at me like asphalt
Remind myself that I could walk away now
Wake up one day and this will all be gone
What did you say, I see you and I remember why I stay
I had to ask myself what are you thinking
I've waited my whole life for you to come around
Now your golden hair, angel skin holds me underground

    General CommentI'm not sure what the song is about, but i'm pretty sure the title is from a book by William Gibson of the same name. One of my favourite British India songs, hopefully the new album is as good as their older stuff.

    Lyric CorrectionPretty sure these are the lyrics, great song, one of their best I think.

    And he'll be dead in an hour
    Here's your phone back, a taxi is coming now
    And let me know when you leave
    We'll melt the plastic and find out what's underneath
    Underneath

    You've got to kill your doubt
    Open your mouth up and spit all the white noise out
    At half past ten I call back
    I put on war paint and act like I never asked
    My blood turns white
    I can't believe what you just said
    Seen this before, I hoped I never would again
    Girls shine like magazines
    Avoid us like falling masonry
    I had to ask myself, what are you thinking?
    My mouth is filling with glass, what are you thinking?

    My blood is laced with caffeine
    Melt through the plastic and find out what's underneath
    The music louder than God
    The future rushing at me like asphalt
    Remind myself that I could walk away right now
    Wake up one day and this will all be gone
    What’d you say? What’d you say? What’d you say?
    I see you and I remember

    I had to ask myself, what are you thinking?
    My mouth was filling with glass, what are you thinking?
    I had to ask myself, what are you thinking?
    My mouth was filling with glass, what are you thinking?
    I had to ask myself, what are you thinking?
    My mouth was filling with glass, what are you thinking?

    I've waited my whole life for you to come around
    Gold hair, angel skin holds me underground
    I've waited my whole life for you to come around
    Gold hair, angel skin holds me underground
    What are you thinking? What are you thinking?
    What are you thinking? What are you thinking?
