"London" as written by and Stephan/cadogan Jenkins....
Through the satellites, I fight with you,
That local brew is spillin',
I know just how you spend your time.
I want to get my hands on him,
Somebody's party in a London flat,
You're where it's at and I know,
You want to see me loose my mind,
I'm tired of chasing after you
The residue is jealous,
See me on the dark side of your mind,
I want to get my hands on him,
To a club that's pounding in the London rain,
The world could end and we won't hear it.
I know just what's on your mind,
I see the way your face has changed,
We're no good for each other,
You tricked me into coming here, So let go,
l don't want to go to London,
I told you I don't care,
I don't want to go to London,
To live there,
I don't want to go to London,
All your friends afflicted,
I don't want to go to London.
She's addicted, I saw you with him,
I know where you've been,
That nose is broken wide open,
Your way has got me out of line.
I want to get my hands on him.
You're so sick just to make me prove,
It takes a fight to move you,
I know just what's on your mind.
It's been this way a thousand years,
We torture each other.
So why the hell did you call me here,
And you know,
l don't want to go to London,
I told you I don't care,
I don't want to go to London,
To live there,
I don't want to go to London,
All your friends afflicted,
I don't want to go to London.
She's addicted.
l don't want to go to London,
I told you I don't care,
I don't want to go to London,
Cause you're not there.
Even when I see you, You're somewhere else in London.

    General Commentwow - this song is about coke - the numbness, the partying, the internal (and external too) violence. kinda like how 420 is related to amsterdam i guess. the dude is fighting to get his girl away from the scene where all her friends are afflicted... she wants him to join her in her "fun" but he wants no part of it. in fact, he's only pretty sure, that he can't take anymore... (heh)

    General CommentThis is my absolute favorite song of all time, because I relate to it totally. :D This song (in my opnion) is about a girl who is treating her boyfriend like shit. She leads him on, lies to him, and cheats on him. The part "I don't want to go to London, I told you I don't care." isn't exactly saying he doesn't want to go to the country, it means he doesn't want to be sucked into her lies anymore. I have been lied to , cheated on, and lead on, so I know how he feels. :(

    General CommentI know I've played this game before. They've broken up, but the girl hints to him where she'll be somehow, and he goes there even though he hates to, seeing her flirting with everyone, with her newestlove interest. She does it just to have his attention, she may not even care about the guy she's with, only that she's making this guy jealous

    General CommentI think that this song is about a long-distance relationship gone bad. The guy in the song is so fed up with the girl's games because they have made him jealous, and an overall worse person. "We're no good for each other"
    Also, he knows that he cannot see her again, because he is sure she will play mind games if he sees her again. He has some left over feelings, but the tone of the song suggests that he's ready to move on. He knows she has somebody else, and "I want to get my hands on him" is a wicked line. Clever song

    i can kind of see this clear because i've studied abroad before. i think they decided to stay together and she wants him to move because its become too hard. but he doesnt want to because whats the point in him coming to watch her flirt with all these guys, or this *one* in particular, through the satellites is like they've been talking on cell phones
