"Instant Street" as written by Thomas Andrew Barman, Craig Ward, Klaas Janssens, Julien De Borgher and Danny Mommens....
You're probably right, seen from your side, that I've been lucky
But I've been meaning to crack all week.
Yes I've been involved, it never resolved into anything shocking.
Pains playing yo-yo in my body as we speak.

And now I found something to look for, but I can't decide,
'Cause I might find that to stroll behind is better than to score.
Just like I did before.

It wouldn't be true, not towards you, to say that I'm staying.
When on every single impulse, on every other move I react.
'Cause in any old creek, with changing technique, you'll see me playing.
After any old motherfucking blow I'll be back.

We turned away from instant stuff
Our cracking codes were breaking up
Our words were sucked out it made them clean.
And after lowness say it
And after more let it be known
Our codes are grown into something mean.

You're probably right, as for tonight, you're making me nervous.
What is it you want me to be thinking of?
I'll put on a movie, I'll play something groovy as a matter of service
And I'll chuckle when you smile as a matter of love.
'Cause you know it's not my style to be giving up now.
And this pain in my side, I had enough.

This time I go for Instant Street
This life's a soulless excuse for all abuse and parenthesis.
The flyspecked windows and the stinking lobbies
They'll remain all the same, all the same.

This time I go.
This time I go.

    General CommentThere lyrics are wrong and incomplete.. the right ones are :

    You’re probably right,
    Seen from your side,
    That I have been lucky.
    But I’ve been meaning to crack all week.
    Yes I’ve been involved,
    It never resolved into anything shocking.
    Pain’s playing yoyo in my body as we speak.

    And now I found something to look for,
    And I can’t decide,
    Cause I might find that stroll behind is better than to score.
    Just like I did before.

    It wouldn’t be true, not towards you,
    To say that I’m staying.
    When on every single impulse,
    On every other move I react.
    'Cause in any old creek, with changing technique,
    You’ll see me playing.
    And after any old motherfucking blow
    I’ll be back.

    We turned away from instant stuff
    Our cracking codes were breaking up
    Our words were sucked out, it made them clean.
    And after lowness say it
    And after more let it be known
    Our codes are grown into something mean.

    You’re probably right, as for tonight, you’re making me nervous.
    What is it you want me to be thinking of ?
    I’ll put on a movie, I’ll play something groovy as a matter of service.
    And I’ll chuckle when you smile as a matter of love.
    'Cause you know it’s not my style to be giving up now.
    And this pain in my side, I had enough.

    This time I go for instant street
    This life’s a soulless excuse for all abuse and parenthesis.
    The flyspecked windows and the - the stinking lobbies they’ll remain
    All the same, all the same.

    This time I go !

    General Commentlegethien, agree much more with your version of the lyrics. Surprised that more people haven't commented here. One of the standout tracks of Instant Street for me building to a cracking guitar solo at the end.

    General CommentOne of my favourite songs ever.

    It's about drugs.

    General CommentTo me it's just a break-up song... he's telling his girl that he can't stay any longer with her, he feels this relationship is coming to an end and he finds himself constantly attracted to other girls. So he feels bad and dishonest staying with her. But he doesn't feel too great about leaving either.

    But maybe I'm just naive :P

    Song MeaningIt's a bit ridiculous to read anywhere "it's about drugs"...
    This song is from a belgian band related to the belgian politics and historically divisions and break up
