"Tesko Suicide" as written by Liam Coverdale-howe, Chris Corner and Ian Pickering....
Phone me and I'll hang up
Sick and tired of being bubble gum chewed up
Dark lane, bleak house shrinking rose, you're over and out
Tie a cherry bootstring, put your candy teeth in
Feeling up the sweetheart, hang up, hang up, hang up

Go on girls solo,
Go on girls take a chance,
Go on girls trust it,
Go on girls the truth is

Cut your hair wear a chip on your shoulder
Get ahead, get laid, get it over
Cheap show, back seat martyr's pose, you're over and out
I'm checking out of my senses, buying best defenses
Putting on the trousers, hang up, hang up, hang up

Go on girls solo,
Go on girls take a chance,
Go on girls trust it,
Go on girls the truth is
So so single so low the truth is

You want the day to fit to a soundtrack
Get a story get a life and get back
You've got nothing to shout about
You're over and out

I'm checking out of my senses, buying best defenses
Fired up on free-will, hang up, hang up, hang up

Go on girls solo,
Go on girls take a chance,
Go on girls trust it,
Go on girls the truth is
So so single so low the truth is
So so single so low the truth is

    General Comment"Liam suggested that suicide kits might as well be available in supermarkets." - I imagine that's where the name came from, (Tesco's being a supermarket here in England - they probably chose to use "Tesko" instead to avoid legal issues)

    General Commenthmmm. it's actually not a get-over song, the band wrote it to mock the ideal of blind independence shoved at young teenage girls. I dunno, the way he leaves off the line "the truth is..." without answering it kinda sums it up for me.

    General CommentI love this song, she has a great voice. I'm not entirely sure that these lyrics we see here are correct, though. I listened to it several times, and it doesn't sound like "CHOKING on a sweetheart..." and where it says "so low," couldn't that be "solo"? I'm not sure. Ah well, who cares, it's a great song.

    General Commenti agree with star dust, the candy metafores as people in there youth, mainly girls. The "cut your hair part" reminds me of my oun "indemendent" teenage girl moment after a week end of partying i dicsed to cut off all my hair because i was tied of the look i had when i was dating my x.

    General CommentYeah, I noticed at my high school girls feel the need to be "independent" in the post-feminist age so they like try to be guys, but in the bad ways (fucking every hot guy they see) and it just messes them up.

    General Commentthe truth is there is no truth and there is no way girls are supposed to be. the song is an allusion to, like stardust said, what the media and even our parents tell us (girls) how we are supposed to be and how we're supposed to act. "Get laid, get it over" the first time for a girl is supposed to be painful, "putting on the trousers" its about all the roles girl play in a society but really dont make an impact.

    General CommentLiam: "Magazines make monsters. Go on girls you know fulfilment starts with blind independance." Explanation 2: the track was inspired by a drunken argument Liam and Kelli had about the glamourisation of suicide, where Liam suggested that suicide kits might as well be available in supermarkets.
