"Super-connected" as written by Tanya Donelly and Gail Greenwood....
On your third broken window
Your hair full of glass
Throw your clothes in the hallway again
Just a sheet on your back

So you're super-connected now
All the freaks gather 'round
And the crowd in your bedroom waits
For a piece of your personal space

Are there heartstrings connected
To the wings you've got slapped on your back?
Better climb in the window
'Cause I'm closing the door

On your third broken window
Hair full of glass
Saw your clothes in the hallway
Just a curtain on your back
(I laugh)

Are there heartstrings connected
To the wings you've got slapped on your back?
Better climb in a window
'Cause I'm closing the door

Now I'm spinning on a dime
Like you claim to do
Like right now
Like now

Are there heartstrings connected
To the poison coming out of your mouth
Are you super-connected
Are you super-connected now
I'm spinning on a dime
Throw your clothes in the hallway
Now I'm closing the door

    General CommentPossibly my favourite Belly song. It's about stupid rock stars being idolised and wasting the opportunity to say something decent and worthwhile, choosing to spout bullshit instead. Most likely directed at Courtney Love.

    General CommentI think the song is about the price of fame and the self-destructive desire to achieve it.

    The "wings you've got slapped on your back" are symbolic of a rapid rise to fame, and the fact that they are "slapped on" means that they are newly acquired and not natural. The operating room in the video supports the notion that the wings were acquired unnaturally.

    The "freaks gathering around" is a reference to paparazzi.

    Being "super-connected" would mean being part of the "in" crowd.

    The "poison coming out of your mouth" could be a reference to corporate music, or insincere work - whatever it takes to keep star status.

    The "broken windows and hair full of glass" seem to describe a car crash. This might be a reference to the self-destructive behavior that often accompanies stardom.

    I'm not sure what the "spinning on a dime" line could mean in this context.

    The narrator in the story asks if "there are heart strings connected to the wings and the poison coming out of your mouth." The narrator is asking if the person is really so attached to their fame. The line "I laugh" indicates the narrator's disapproval. "Closing the door" could indicate that the narrator has had enough and is going to leave the relationship.

    General CommentSeems to me that the song is about the voyeuristic nature of webcams and sex over the Internet. The song was released in 1995 when that trend was new. Super-connected to the freaks in your bedroom. Pretty much says it all to me.
