"Feed Me" as written by and Adrian Nicholas Matthew Thaws....
(Tricky raps in the background throughout
Hey you, so what cha gonna do
Palpable, searable, popular demand
From cradle to grave, the simple diary of man)

How things are together we'll destroy
And then we can destroy what we are
Together we can build what we are when we dream the spirit free
We don't give praise, we take praise
So why are we?

How things are together we'll destroy
And then we can destroy what we are
Together we can build what we are when we dream the spirit free
We don't give praise, we take praise
So why are we?

Feed me when I'm hungry
Drink me till I'm dry
The dream of yesterday becomes another lie
You feed me lies--distortion--the english disaster
No ones free from love for one master (one lord for one master)

We found a new place to live where we're taught to grow strong
And strongly sensitive, it always sets the scenery
Colors leave only beauty, words and wine amongst the greenery
See how it is (tastes)
See how it is (tastes)
We only let you teach us wrong and right
Give us priority
Seniority
Seniority
Seniority
We only let you teach us wrong and right
Give us priority
Seniority
Seniority
Seniority

Extract from crystal though nothing is clear
I despise you, damn you, dream you
I love you
But still nothings clear
I think of when I found you
Keep on singin while I'm drowning
Down into that two-tone vision
I've been raised (maze) in this place
And now concrete is my religion

See how it is (tastes)
See how it is (tastes)
See how it is (tastes)
See how it is (tastes)

We only let you teach us wrong and right
Give us priority
Seniority
Seniority
Seniority

We only let you teach us wrong and right
Give us priority
Seniority
Seniority
Seniority

We only let you teach us wrong and right
Give us priority
Seniority
Seniority
Seniority

The only lesson you teach us ?
They ask my origin,
The only lesson you teach us ?
They ask my origin, it's a moral sin.

    General CommentThis is a very strange song. I love it. It has two totally different beats that overlap each other. The first time i heard the song, the only thought i could think was "Woah!". It has an enigmatic tone to peice. I like it how hard the beat is to follow, but after three listens or so, you quickly adapt. It's not too easy to listen to, but just give it a chance, and you'll realize how great this peice is!

    General CommentThis is an absolutely beautiful song. Criminally underrated and one of my favorites off of Maxinquaye. Beautifully layered song and Martina's singing is wondrous as always.
