"Quite Free" as written by Francis Healy, Andrew Dunlop and Douglas Payne....
There's a boy I know so well
He hides inside his padded cell
And he can see
That he will never be quite free
He takes his time
Steps carefully

There's a girl I see sometimes
She hides behind a dirty mind
And she can see
That she will never be quite free
She takes her time
Steps carefully

Free to make your mind up
Free to choose your fate
Free to hold your hand up
Free; don't leave me standing in the way
'Cause I like you
And I'd like to
Be free, be free, be free, be free

    General CommentYep, great lyrics, great song. Continues on the dark theme of Ode to J. Smith. This seems to be about the feeling that you're trapped in your own life. Goes well with the songs about suicide on the album. This has a really melancholy sound to the chord progression too
