"Idea Track" as written by Bob Fairfoull, Colin Newton, Rod Pryce-jones and Roddy Woomble....
Dear Hugh Miller, I've thought it through for a while but it doesn't get any easier
And three months on in this bad design won't make it feel any easier
Your grave, it's your grave

Dear Hugh Miller, it's four months now from when we started and nothing feels much easier.
I sit and stare in a cork tiled room and it doesn't get much easier.
Your grave, it's your grave

Pretend it works a while, it's transmitted live
Pretend it works a while (you don't try)
Pretend it works a while, it's transmitted live
Pretend it works a while (don't try)

Dear Hugh Miller, it's four months now from when we started and nothing feels much easier.
I sit and stare in a cork tiled room and it doesn't get much easier.
Your grave, it's your grave

Pretend it works a while, it's transmitted live
Pretend it works a while (you don't try)
Pretend it works a while, it's transmitted live
Pretend it works a while (don't try)

Your grave, it's your grave

Pretend it works a while, it's transmitted live
Pretend it works a while (you don't try)
Pretend it works a while, it's transmitted live
Pretend it works a while (don't try)

I don't care if I don't have an idea track, it's an idea track, it's an idea
I don't care if I don't have an idea track, it's an idea track, it's an idea
Your grave, it's your grave.

    General CommentActually, this is a rather sad tale once you look up Hugh Miller.

    Hugh Miller was a both a creationist and a geologist, who came into great personal conflict over the concept of a great global flood (Noah's Ark) and his observed scientific evidence. According to legend, his inability to reconcile these inconsistancies caused him to take his own life.

    Pretend it works awhile.... It's your grave.

    General CommentI can't think of the words to give this song justice.....I love it; As for the meaning, to me its about not being afraid to think for your self and challenge everything, all the so-called "norms" ......"It's your grave"...meaning its YOUR life, live it the way you want and not be afraid to take chances......

    General CommentMarcel Proust was unable to write except in a cork-tiled room (to keep out noise and dust).

    Together with the references to Miller, it would seem Roddy feels a kinship with people who weren't quite sure whether they belonged in this world.
