"All Disco" as written by and Craig Lee Potter Guy Edward John Garvey....
Young man with a bruised old soul
One snap to bring you back
Hands black with smudging the night into day
There's lend time in the alley, you could slip away
But there are still fences to squeeze through
And I'll reach you, spirits to cancel

Come to the river sun
Let your obsession go
What does it prove if you die for a tune
It's really all disco
Everything
Everything

Let's join the yellow eyed snuck flies
Rejoicing in choices they made
Let's be a bird laughing at not having learned
Let's be a hundred and five you and I
And sing out a tune of regret to the moon
Perverted old timers
I'll feed you one liners

Come to the river sun
Let the obsession go
What does it prove if you die for a tune
It's really all disco
What does it prove if you die for a tune
Don't you know it's all disco
Everything

I can hear how deep you're going
Pull the cord
I can feel your tempo slowing
Pull the cord

Come to the river sun
Let your obsession go
What does it prove if you die for a tune
It's really all disco
What does it prove if you die for a tune
Don't you know it's all disco
Everything
Everything

    My InterpretationYet again another one of Elbows masterpieces of music. This time I believe there is a deeper meaning inside this time I believe this is about a young man who's been through his share of hardships in life and is looking for an escape.

    "Young man with a bruised old soul"
    "But there are still fences to squeeze through, and I'll reach you, spirits to cancel"

    The message in this story is rather like Elbows Classic "Lippy Kids" in that he's conveying a message to enjoy life in its beauty, not to take it too seriously as it's all a somewhat a bit of fun "what does it prove if you die for a tune, it's really all disco".

    "Let the obsession go"

    The message seams to be that you shouldn't take life too seriously and to remember it's all a bit of fun and to cherish and laugh at life and the moments it brings no matter how bad things get.

    "Let's be a bird laughing at not having learned"

    It's another deep and great song by Elbow and this is what I deem to be the meaning.
