"So Far (It's Alright)" as written by George Bedford Daniel, Matthew Timothy Healy, Ross Stewart Macdonald and Adam Brian Thomas Hann....
Yeah so far it's alright, alright baby
X5

Yeah, it's the way we are
We were smoking by eleven and knocking 'round town
Beat 'em ups on my arm
We were never good at selling
Couldn't cut down
And I stay with my father while his friends die of heart attacks
He's got a heart made of stone but he never gets cold 'cause the sun is always on his back

I used to think you were cool
I believed you had a wonderful vision
but I soon found out you're a terrible friend
and your mum is on the television
Giz a go on your bike
How you getting on with your life?
It's alright, yeah it's alright

Yeah so far it's alright, alright baby x4

Well I'm coming to the end of 23, she said
Is that alright?
And it's coming to the end of you and me, she said
Is that alright?
And how can you complain about life and talk about being bored
If you just sit at Pete's house playing video games
Doing sniff that you can't afford

I can't be picking up in the town
So get me one off Adam if he's sorting you
I don't really care what all your friends are about
I was always looking for a way to get out
It's the reflection of the size of your house
A silver spoon and a zoot in your mouth
But your alright, yeah it's alright

Yeah so far it's alright, alright baby x4

So here we are
It's quarter to 11
We're knocking 'round town
A pushing in, in the bar
You can cry 'til 11
That's quarter of an hour
And why stay if you hate it so much?
You think you're well cool
You just write about sex and killing yourself and how you hardly ever went to school

Don't you wanna take me up in the clouds?
Pretend that I'm the one and you can show me about
She was talking marriage
So we had to get out
Now he's making up for it by sleeping about
The ultimatums a ridiculous joke
I'm gonna pick the option that allows me to smoke
But I'm alright, yeah it's alright

Yeah so far it's alright, alright baby x4

    General CommentSounds to me its about just trying to have fun and do what he wants in life kinda like how his old man did. He is not wanting to get into committments esp with his girl. Just smoking and getting high and hangin out, is what he is about now. (sounds kinda fun)

    My InterpretationFrom interviews with Matty talking about the town he grew up in, I think it's just about boredom and wanting to do something to get out of the monotonous upper-middle-class life routine. He finds this girl who's kind of edgy and interesting, but she ends up not being as fun as he had hoped. Pretty much, it's just about boredom, same as Chocolate is.

    Side note: if you don't watch Matty's interviews, you so should. The guys brilliant and hearing him speak is just so thought-provoking.
