    General CommentThis will be long, but I wanted to offer my interpretation.

    This song is very self-conscious and -reflective. It describes what goes on in James' mind and it describe his relation to people as an artist. It seems like a bunch of harsh noises and random samples at first, but most of it makes sense to me after a few listens. I'll break it down into individual parts of the song.

    The beat is chaotic, loud, noisy, wild, unpredictable. This reflects what goes on in James' head. He has all this music inside of him, so much that it sometimes becomes an indecipherable mess of melodies and beats. He has so much music he wants to make, so many emotions he wants to translate into songs, and it scares him that he has so little time in his life to finish even a fraction of them. That's why the soundscape is so hard, and evil-sounding.

    The music is constantly interrupted by voices. the first one belongs to James's mother (mummy mix) and represents his family. "You've got so many machines Richard" is repeated and hard to hear at first. This is because James feels his music-making is making him ignore his family at times. The line comments on how much time he spends working on his music, and his answer is full of denial: "I havent got that many". He doesnt think he spends THAT much time on it; he just likes doing it.

    The next voice represents the public, his listeners. All they can offer him is meaningless criticism like "thats a nasty sound". I'm not sure if this is how he feels about the majority of his listeners, but there are certainly a lot of people out there who can't or won't appreciate songs like Come to Daddy (pappy mix) or Isopropophlex.

    However, there is still some positive feedback, also from his family, either his grandmother or mother mentions that she likes "those fast bits". This relative then offers James something (to eat?) but her voice is cut off, James has already gone back to his music, too obsessed with his art to give his family more attention.

    The final vocal piece in the song comes again from the public, his listeners, demanding over and over again that he gives them a snare rush, until the voice becomes distorted and mauled. James feels that his listeners crave everything from him. They want more, more, more brilliance, taking and giving nothing in return. The voice is lazy, demanding, somewhat condescending. It becomes nothing more than noise after a while.

    At the very end of the piece, James is offered tremendous applause. This represents the positive critical reception and ecstatic fans of his music. Perhaps he's saying that at the end of the day, his problems don't matter because his music makes people happy. Maybe he thinks it's crazy that so many applaud him like a genius, an opera singer or artist on stage, when all he does is his job, putting his emotions and thoughts into sound.

    Then again, maybe it really is just a random collection of beats and voice samples. I have no idea why I wrote all this, but I hope that someone takes something from it. I would love to read other interpretations of this awesome song.
