"J.Smith" as written by and Francis Healy....
There's a man on the street,
And he looks at his feet form his window.
And he swears at the sun,
And he curses the moon for its shadow.

Take a leaf from his book
Take a thread from his suite
He's a new man

And he prays to his god
That he reaps his reward
For his new plan

Oh, the mold has been cast
The radio's in the bath
Yeah yeah yeah

Labor tuus nunc ad terminum
Sed per deos, vade retro
Nomen nusquan video
Carbo in culo in aeternitatem
Placet satanae te vedere

    General CommentThis is a cool song. Does any one know what the end translation is? It seems like it's about a guy who's about to kill himself.

    General CommentA quick google search too me to a review at stereogum.com/archives/video/… where Fran commented:

    "Just to clarify. The choir in J.Smith are angels welcoming him to heaven "Salve Pia Anima- Hail holy soul...Labor Tuus nunc ad terminum...Your toil is at an end...then they note that he is not on the guest list, turn into horribble devils and cast him to hell..."Carbo in culo in aeternitatem - Coal in your arse FOREVER!!!"
    Lots of love
    Fran x "
