"Aftermath" as written by Adrian Nicholas Matthew Thaws and Howard Simon Bernstein....
(M: )
For once, there's someone for he, for she.
For once, there's someone for he, for me.

(T&M: )
Your eyes resemble mine, you see as no others can
Here inherit my kingdom, speak of our [my] people's plans
I'll be here for my baby, for my baby I'll be here [near]
So many things I need to tell you, things you need to hear

(T: )
It was a day like no other
Clocks [hanging off]
It was said they dropped the bomb
And I walked out the door
Feeling lonely, [I see rain/as a ray]
Thinking of what was once
So I go in search of people
[Song of] the inhabitants
The air is filled with chemicals
So this is the aftermath
Walking over rubble
Which was once [cause's calf]
Down to the center
Which used to be central

(M: )
So this is the aftermath

For once, there's someone for he, for she.
For once, there's someone for he, for me.

(M&T: )
Your eyes resemble mine, you see as no others can
Here inherit my kingdom, speak of our people's plan
I'll be here for my baby, for my baby I'll be near
So many things I need to tell you, things you need to hear

(M: )
For once, there's someone for he, for she.
For once, there's someone for he, for me.

"How can I
"How can I
How can I be sure
In a world that's constantly changing
How can I be sure

Just when I thought I was winning
Just when I thought I could not be stopped
Just when I thought I was winning
Just when I thought I could not be stopped
how can I be sure

    General CommentI may be wrong here, but I thought the lyric was:

    'for one more poor boy
    there's someone

    for him
    for she

    for one more poor boy
    there's someone

    for him
    for me'

    General CommentThis song means so much to me, just at that point that you need music to define you, at the age of 18 or so this stepped in.

    Is it talking about a nuclear war aftermath, as I first thought when I heard it? That was something that obsessed me as a child, see if you can watch Threads and not find it very disturbing.


    I only just became aware of "how can I be sure" by David Cassidy, and thats why I am here today.

    Its very gentle, but restrained violence is there. Like being very angry with someone you love who is vunerable.

    General CommentThis is about a couple lying in bed post-coitus. He's thinking about the girl next to him, wondering if she's "the one," and he's going back and forth on the subject. On the one hand, he's telling her beautiful things about how she sees him like nobody else sees him, but on the other hand he keeps wondering, "how can I be sure?" The Blade Runner sample reveals that he's unsure if he's attracted to her for her or because he's subconsciously working out some kind of Freudian issue.

    General CommentThe last part is a reference to Japan's "Ghosts"... very, very dark and powerful song. Kind of a perfect thing to sample.
