"Low Five" as written by Liam Coverdale-howe, Chris Corner and Ian Pickering....
It takes too much to please me
attached but no real feeling
high fives and corporate anthems
nothing comes to mind

kitemarked for true low standards
where more wants all and no less
just change with no real progress
nothing comes to mind
i want higher
still nothing comes to mind

give me a low five
'cause i can't help myself
i'm a low five downsize no-one else
do you love yourself ?

these altered states and egos
potential less than zero
found god in san diego
nothing comes to mind

i half expect to find myself
in full control of nothing else
last hope but learnt to hope less
nothing comes to mind
i want higher
still nothing comes to mind

    General CommentChris: "It's an anti-corporate anthem; its about how we hate American-ness. It was exciting going there, but I couldn't handle it. This is a statement that we are going to be English. Lyrically, it's not sensational. We talk about ordinary things. We're European and this is a European record."

    General CommentIt does sound like someone of the corporate world of America, who is very unhappy with where they are at in life. It sounds like they try and please those of higher positions, but can't ever earn the respect they put in.

    "give me low five
    I can't help myself
    I'm a low five downsize no one else
    do you love yourself?"


    And also, maybe one day this said person did get some attention; now they want more - power, attention, etc etc.

    "but I want higher
    still nothing comes to mind"
