"Mistake Pageant" as written by Bob Fairfoull, Colin Newton, Rod Pryce-jones and Roddy Woomble....
I couldn't stand up looking up at the faded party
I couldn't stand up looking up at a faded party

It was a mistake pageant
It was a mistake from the start
This is a mistake pageant
But it's unsuitable to laugh like the others

Couldn't stand up looking up, I'm at a faded party
I couldn't stand up looking at, at a famous party

It was a mistake pageant
It was a mistake from the start
This is a mistake pageant
And I don't understand the way that you're living

Because you've had bad luck (disorder)
And I know what it feels like to have bad luck

You can't open your eyes
You can't, open your eyes
It's vain or is it just fame?

It was a mistake pageant
It was a mistake from the start
This is a mistake pageant
And I don't understand this way that you're living

Because you've had bad luck (disorder)
And I know what it feels like to have bad luck

I Hope that this won't bring you down
These people are obscured by frowns
This won't bring you down
These people, frown

'Cause you've had bad luck (disorder)
And I know what it feels like to have bad luck.

    General CommentThis song is about how the band are surprised by their new-found popularity, and their reluctance to have it flung onto them.
