    General CommentOK...fleeing from our fate among the Empire Ants, we are now quite lost (Where's North from here?). And it has become quite cold...

    We have ventured into the hinterland...the glimmering deadly Glitter Freeze. Endless frost and silicate sharpness, and the mad laughter of this place's only inhabitant. This is not a friendly place at all. It aims to end us...to leave our bodies and souls frozen-sparkling amidst the circuits of snow.

    General CommentWhen I hear this song, I can't help think of some futuristic frozen post-apocalyptic situation (or at least an outpost on the frozen border-fringe of society). This melds with a certain scene in Bioshock with a rough madman hunting me through the frost.

    General CommentI agree with feathered sun, maybe it IS a post apocaliptic wasteland of snow and ice

    General CommentAhh....and the party enhancement supplement references are endless in these songs.....Gorillaz I love you
    As to the meaning, it feels just like what you're saying FeatheredSun. It is this warped reality, built on this rushed hysteria...and that laughter holds just enough maniacal tinges to really make you wonder about your own sanity.

    General CommentThe morse code part of the song is really creative, a great effect, and so is the sound in the background. It sounds like a dental drill to me. I like the idea of taking something that is so cringe-worthy to many people and making music out of it. As for Dr. F, I think that could easily be a reference to Frankenstein. He's saying that even the man who created his own monster wouldn't even believe what we have done.

    General CommentThis whole time I've thought it was "You want credit, I'll believe ya."

    The morse code is extremely amazing.

    General CommentIn this World of the Plastic Beach, the humans(portrayed as pirates), and this song is just about one specific boat captain, in search of Plastic Beach, gets a morse code saying "PLASTIC BEACH", and he is traveling through an ocean in this part in their world called the Glitter Freeze, which I assume, is just human made ice caps, created from the plastic in the dead ocean(explained in Superfast).

    I agree with SaintEvrick, the Dr. F idea fights great with the whole theme of the album, and is the only thing i can make sense it means.

    The song reminds me of many sounds youd hear in a ship, so the whole song is just a ship searching through the ocean to find Plastic Beach.

    "Where's north from here?"
    - Sets up the search.
