Every phone call
Every single wasted breath
Is always taken down

There's at least a single paragraph a day
On numbers you left out

Single out a camera to focus on
Burn another bridge with your smile
It's a made up conversation
It's supposed to take you a while

There is a message from the company:
On your way to the park
There is an agent who will greet you
Hand off the plates and go dark
There is the danger of complicity
Stay on target (All I need is a spark)
Stay on point
If they can see through your duplicity
Keep to the mission (Check if your wineglass is marked)
Stay in the moment
One false turn and it all starts again

In a villa on the outskirts of Taormina
They're staking your room out
On a rogue tip off a busker in Vienna
Who rolled you once down south

Churchill even painted a burro there
Really isn't part of your style
Is this a made up confrontation?
Are you keeping us in denial?

You dropped your boarding pass for Tuscany
Your train is prepped to embark
There is a separate continuity
The poisoned watermark

There is a message from the company:
Stay on target (On your way to the park)
Stay on Point
There is an agent who will greet you
Keep to the mission (Hand off the plates and go dark)
Stay in the moment
There is the danger of complicity
Stay on target (All I need is a spark)
Stay on Point
If they can see through your duplicity
Keep to the mission (Check if your wineglass is marked)
Stay in the moment
One false turn, it all starts over again.

    My InterpretationWhy are there no comments on this song????? Amazing somg and one of my favourites off Information Retrieved.

    Anyway, I think it's pretty suggestive of someone being followed by some government agents. Maybe a nod to X-Files, following the sci-fi theme of a lot of their work. But it mainly makes me think of Alexander Litvinenko, the ex-KGB who was poisoned they believe through a drink somewhere.
