"Innocence (Live Intro)" as written by and Mikel Jollett....
Well, I lost my innocence today
I could feel her in my bones
My bones, my bones, my bones
My blood, my blood, my blood, my blood

And I woke up, tired, scared and sad
Soaked, drained, I felt so bad
Today, today, today
What you still, you still, you still, you still
Won't you say, you say, you say, you say
What you feel, you feel, you feel, you feel
Which is nothing but hollow feelings, yeah
I can, done, I just don't care

And forget happiness, I'm fine
I'll forget everything in time
I swear I didn't know,
You know me, how I can't let go
And we're not guts, we're just hacks
All that life amongst the cracks
The scars, the siege that breaks
The ugliest scene, the worst mistakes
And everywhere I see her face
Such a beautiful child, such an awful waste
And there's no innocence like hers
Just emptiness and nerves

And this light from the window of my car
She'll never see it, oh my God
I was so surprised, it blew up in my face
Lord, I lost my nerve, oh my God...
Oh my God, oh my... God

And I tear, I tear, so hard...
And I tear, I tear, so hard...
And I beg and scream, "I was wrong"
It's over, she's gone

    General CommentWell it's a pretty classic description of depression, first of all.
    Mikel references his medical condition, which involves Vitiligo, i.e. patches of lost pigment in the skin: "These spots on my hands" and again, "The ink stains on my hands" (which I think is the secondary meaning, the first being, of course, how he works so hard to write, and in context, how he's not sure it has any real purpose).
    At the end of this "intro", he's saying when he feels like this, that if he knew that it was true that the dead went home to heaven, then he would gladly, well, go. As in, suicide.

    I have a hard time connecting this to Innocence, which as far as I can see is about loss of innocence, probably through loss of virginity, and how it pretty much ruins their romance. I know they play them together in some live sets, but I would hardly consider them part of the same song.

    General CommentI think the term "innocence" in this song is used to portray an actual person or girlfirend. He got dumped. He lost a very virtuous girlfriend. Thus he lost his optimism in life.

    Well, I lost my innocence today
    I could feel her in my bones
    My bones, my bones, my bones
    My blood, my blood, my blood, my blood

    I do not think "virginity" could be symbolized by "innocence" in this song. It just doesn't connect with the first half.
