"Tangerine" as written by Grant Nicholas, Taka Hirose and Jon Lee....
Tangerine, turning green
Cellophane, window pane
Socialize, paralyzed
Plastic faces suck me dry

Tangerine, tangerine
Tangerine, tangerine

I know, it's sad
Life's just a piece of fruit
Touch down, new ground
Stop living on the moon

I know, it's sad
Life's just a piece of fruit
Touch down, new ground
Stop living on the moon

Twenty eight, suffocate
Take a ride, see me fly
Detonate, feel it break
See myself disintegrate

Tangerine, tangerine
Tangerine, tangerine

I know, it's sad
Life's just a piece of fruit
Touch down, new ground
Stop living on the moon


I know, it's sad
Life's just a piece of fruit
Touch down, new ground
Stop living on the moon

See it as I climb
The rain burns in my eyes
So catch me as I fall away

Tangerine, tangerine
Tangerine, tangerine
Oh, oh, oh, oh

I know, it's sad
Life's just a piece of fruit
Touch down, new ground
Stop living on the moon

I know, it's sad
Life's just a piece of fruit
Touch down, new ground
Stop living on the moon

I know, it's sad
Life's just a piece of fruit
Touch down, new ground
Stop living on the moon

I know, it's sad
Life's just a piece of fruit
Touch down, new ground
Stop living on the moon

    General CommentThis is the -only- feeder song ive heard and not loved.

    General CommentThis song is very good musically but yes lyrically just doesnt quite make it.

    Grant wrote it as a tongue in cheek sort of song on Feeders situation when they were struggling to get noticed and seeing other bands like Skunk Anansie, Smashing Pumpkins just become so elevated in their music.
    Tangerine was obviously his way of explaining how he saw the band maybe compared to the other bands they were musically genered too. They were the tangerine, the fruit turning green, the off fruit amongst the lot.Possibly?
