"1992" as written by Damon Albarn, Graham Coxon, Steven Alexander James and David Rowntree....
Going into business
An agreement of your bombast
You'd love my bed
You took the other instead
But don't you feel low
I was being oblique
And you'd love my bed
You got the other instead

What do you owe me
The price of your piece of mind
You'd love my bed
You took it all instead

    General CommentI think gibbler's point on 1992 being a bad year for Blur makes sense, but it's important to recognise another possible meaning. 1992 was the year in which Damon first got with Justine Frischmann, and 1998--the year prior to '13' being released--was the year they broke up.

    In a way, the song's a dark recap of Damon's post-Leisure personal life, in particular his relationship with Justine, but also the direction Blur's music was taking at the time.

    A brilliant song, with--fittingly--oblique lyrics.

    General Comment1992 was hard year for blur. They had already one album and were on tour, but they didn´t really success. This is what the song is about.

    General CommentThis song is so surreal. The whole album is so atmospheric- it really does create a mood. It's unexplainable.

    General Commentactually this song was called 1992 because that was the year it was written; the original song is from the Modern Life Is Rubbish sessions.

    General CommentAnybody out there who knows what Damon is whispering at the end of the song? I can only identify some pieces like "jealousy" "eternity" by listening.
