"Saramona Said" as written by and Luke Henery James Jonathan Tidswell....
No place to hide, no where to lead us
I wanna take it down, Saramona said
No great reprise, I will abandon
I want to bastardise this entire state

Let's start a fire, it's like a big freight train
Let's start a fire, we are defeated

The TV lies, it makes me anxious
I want a dictator, Saramona said
Let's free desire, be unconnected
I wanna pop this pill, cause I'm a free man

Let's start a fire, it's like a big freight train
Let's start a fire, we are defeated

Let's start a fire
We are defeated

    Song MeaningOfficially from the band:

    I read an article in Adbusters about a girl who took party drugs (a lot of them) because she said the generation before us fucked the planet over for good. Life is meaningless, so the current generation should go out with a bang. She wasn’t an idiot; she literally quoted the facts about global warming, peak oil etc. and also justified her collection of 100 pairs of very expensive shoes with an ultra-consumer “me-first” mantra. This girl became the character for ‘Saramona Said’, and the same idea floats through other songs. I just find this viewpoint extremely interesting. Rather than admitting to the flaws of human desire, they embrace them with pride. I hate it, but in a way it points out shallowness of lot of how we live our lives anyway. We do what she does, we just don’t have a mantra that goes with it. This was one of the first songs written for the record and it kind of set the standard. It was different for us and we liked how it builds through the whole song and isn’t stuck in the usual soft-loud dynamic.

    My InterpretationI think it goes,

    Let's start a riot
    It's like a big freight train
    Let's start a fire
    We have to feed it

    And the part at the end with the overlapping words,

    As we watch we lose ourselves
    To find the world was always fine (mine?)
    All and all we lose ourselves
    A miracle, a miracle
    As we lose ourselves
