"Undrowned" as written by Jonathan Joseph Higgs, Jeremy Joseph Pritchard, Alexander Kaines Robertshaw and Michael David Spearman....
First, boy, I think you should know
If you try hard then you might get a part as a
Doe-eyed impressionist mime
Bare as the lives of the footballers' wives that

Surround you, their diamonds aloft
A system of pistons arachnid and blistered
A billboard, a murder of crows
While princes fly drones that can see through your bones, and the

Wind stops, the temperature drops
And harpies melt through you like horses to glue
I believe you, but not what you say
To close it around til you're scorched and undrowned, they

Devour you in tottering heels
And who wants the Falklands and who wants the Balkans
I love you, just like a bank
There's so much to talk about that we don't talk about

Boy
Trust in me
I feel

She said it fills me with dread
The people in Parliament don't know the half of it
Please, son, it's only a sport
The fate of a ball don't enthrall me at all

So relax, son, go through it again
Who have you seen what's with all your means

I fell down, down
And I saw a billionaire
With all of his innards nailed
To the walls, to the walls, to the west
Don't fear it now
But don't stop asking

Hey, man, you're probably right
It's not a galaxy made for a guy like me
Badness, the edge of the world
The edge of my memory, some kind of energy

Burned up and frittered away
Pound in the dirt as ?
But I'm awful, I kept my head down
I turned a blind eye and I played my cards right

I'm in debt, ma, I've waited too long
Bought all the records I've bought all the records
I'm lonely, I don't know myself
I thought there was something I waited for something

Oh girl don't, don't leave
Don't leave
Don't leave
Don't leave

(To the walls, to the walls, to the west)
Don't leave
Don't, don't!

    General CommentI'm not really sure what this song is about. it could be about how people are unaware of what the effects of what they are doing are they are just doing it for money maybe 'the people in parliament don't know the half of it'.
    anyway, this song is beautiful and I love the bass at the end and Jon's vocal range is exquisite.
    everything everything rule!!!
