Grandad George said the heroes are the ones that run away,
But I wear no medals as I'm sprawled in a toilet on my birthday.
Welcome to my circuitboard city of yellow and black,
We all score WD40 so our hearts don't crack
I must admit I need a speed-bump to slow down my higher brain.

Have a dance, have a drink
Suppress it back, ruin everything
Have a dance, have a drink
Suppress it back, ruin everything tonight
Let's ruin everything tonight

I've got a note (i've got a note) from my doctor,
So please release me from you're rat-race melodrama.
I'll throw a spanner in the works
I want more chaos to this order
I'll throw a spanner in the works
I want more chaos to this order

Have a dance, have a drink
Suppress it back, ruin everything
Have a dance, have a drink
Suppress it back, ruin everything
Have a dance, have a drink
Suppress it back, ruin everything
Have a dance, have a drink
Suppress it back, ruin everything tonight
Lets ruin everything tonight

I can't wait to wallow in self-pity
in my circuitboard city tonight
I can't wait to wallow in self-pity
in my circuitboard city tonight
I can't wait to wallow in self-pity
in my circuit board city tonight
I can't wait to wallow in self-pity
in my circuit board city tonight

    My InterpretationI did not think porn. Maybe it is but i'd like to think it was somewhat less shallow. The impression i got was that the speaker feels the need to retreat back to the computer is all, that they see safety in their 'circuitboard city" rather than out on the town.
    In a nutshell, things go wrong and they retreat back away from people. People are shit but you can disassociate from them on the computer.
    It just feels like a song about retreating for me. Getting hurt and retreating.

    General Commentreminds me of the line "and towns become circuit boards" in Books from Boxes by Maximo Park.
    it might be about porn. idk.
    when they say circuit board, all that springs to mind is how cities actually look like circuit boards at night, when you're on a hill looking down or whatever.
