"Torso of the Week" as written by Jonathan Joseph Higgs, Jeremy Joseph Pritchard, Alexander Kaines Robertshaw and Michael David Spearman....
Girl you've been hitting that treadmill like a freak
Maybe you're not quite the torso of the week
The hollowest cheeks in the county, tyne to tweed
Jogging all over my grave baby with your flipper feet

Coiled heart, eye-toothed, feral child
Take me dancing in the wild
You're looking like you're bored with your husband
You're looking like you're mad at the question
So why you staring out of the window
I can't stop your prying as you're telling

What you're wrestling with
What you're wrestling wrestling
What you're wrestling with
What you're wrestling wrestling with
Girl you been hitting that treadmill like a freak

What you're wrestling with
What you're wrestling wrestling
What you're wrestling with
What you're wrestling wrestling with
Maybe you're not quite the torso of the week

Girl you've been offered the big deal, don't look back
The possible perks of the lifestyle, gold and black
The minerals all through your system, that's my girl
Juggling all of your babies with your blonde hair curled

Coiled heart, eye-toothed, feral child
Take me dancing in the wild
You're looking like you're bored with your husband
You're looking like you're mad at the question
So why you staring out of the window
I can't stop your prying as you're telling

What you're wrestling with
What you're wrestling wrestling
What you're wrestling with
What you're wrestling wrestling with
Girl you been hitting that treadmill like a freak

What you're wrestling with
What you're wrestling wrestling
What you're wrestling with
What you're wrestling wrestling with
Maybe you're not quite the torso of the week

Coiled heart, eye-toothed, feral child
You're looking like you're mad at the question
You're looking like you're lost on your thinkin'
You're screaming like a siren ?
Your wrist is not unnoticed in the trembling

What you're wrestling with
What you're wrestling wrestling
What you're wrestling with
What you're wrestling wrestling with
Girl you been hitting the treadmill like a freak

What you're wrestling with
What you're wrestling wrestling
What you, what you,
What you're wrestling wrestling with
Maybe you're not quite the torso of the week

Take my life

What you're wrestling with
What you're wrestling wrestling
What you're wrestling with
What you're wrestling wrestling with
Maybe you're not quite the torso of the week

(Coiled heart)

    My InterpretationI think this song is about a girl with self esteem issues. Maybe anorexic?
    "girl you've been hitting that treadmill like a freak, maybe your not quite the torso of the week"
    This may be about her obsession with exercise and staying skinny.

    My InterpretationI think this song is about a woman who excersising and 'hitting the treadmill like a freak' to distract herself from facing her problems or as a way to deal with stress. Jon(the lead singer) is trying to confront her and get her to admit she needs help or is 'not quite the torso of the week'.
    Everything everything rulz!

    General CommentJonathan: ‘Torso Of The Week’ is inspired by the many exercising folk of Manchester. I was going to the gym a fair amount and I would go at night quite often, sit there on my bike or whatever and obviously your mind wanders because there’s this terrible, terrible music in there. And I was listening to Scott’s Journey to the Antarctic and just looking at these people like zombies on their treadmills. I was thinking how weird it is that in this day and age we come into a room to use our bodies. You have to set time aside to use your body. It got me thinking of the balance of work-life and the lure of the bright lights and some kind of story in my mind of a woman who is struggling to stay on top of things with all the stuff she has to deal with. A treadmill woman just going and going and going. It struck me as a sad struggle in some way.

    Jeremy: It’s not meant to be spiteful. It’s sympathetic. All these external pressures that are put on women, especially to be thin. We’re not saying everyone should be unhealthy. We all have to go to the gym from time to time but the title comes from those magazines that put pressure on people to go to the gym.

    Jonathan: And also I wrote it being in the gym myself. I’m in the gym, for God’s sake. There’s a torso of the week sitting in there in the magazine and that’s not me.
