"Look What I Found" as written by and Ian Thornley....
It's solely operational
And we don't even have to sell
I roped it but what the hell
It's someone else's oh oh well

Stolen but it's okay
If integrity says no way
Well now it's here to stay
So let's go outside and play

Well I suppose so
Well I never did really want to know

How can you walk around
With your feet up off the ground? (yeah)
How can you steal their sum?
Keep your ears below the ground
And take a look around
Look what I found

No one will ever notice
That all your shit is bogus
And never go for the fear
That someone like me might hear

Your shtick is gettin' thinner
But you'll come out a winner
Check's already in the bank
And you've forgotten who to thank

And fake is what you bring
And what I need is the real thing

How can you walk around
With your feet up off the ground? (yeah)
How can you steal their sum?
Keep your ears below the ground
And take a look around
Look what I found

Well I suppose so
And no one will ever know

How can you walk around
With your feet up off the ground?
How can you steal their sum?
Keep your ears below the ground
And take a look around
Look what I found

    General CommentSounds like a relationship that ended abruptly because Mr. Thornley found out his girlfriend's dirty little secret. In the chorus, "Keep your ears below the ground, Take a look around..." - I got the imagery of looking under the bed, where some like to hide things. It also seems through the verses that this girl feels no remorse but it actually proud of what she's done behind his back.

    My InterpretationKnowing that Ian Thornley wrote most, if not all, of 'In Loving Memory of...' about a girl/bad breakup, my theory doesn't carry much weight. Nonetheless, my first read on this song was that it was about the relationship between band and record companies / management and a sort of tell off to the industry in general.

    The first two verses deal with the signing -- Fully operational / Don't even have to sell, but transform into dissention internally and from the record company - Someone else's soul / Here to stay...outside and play.

    The chorus is the difference between the industry and the band. How can they, record companies, offer so much, seem to be so great? (That's how I take the 'feet up off the ground' line) The steal sound line would seem to come from an exec forcing a change on how the band originally looked/sounded. All this while keeping their ears below the ground, so they're literally missing what's actually happening.

    Well, to all of this, there's a harsh reply of 'Take a look around, look what I've found' which I always took as a cast off of the band/industry interplay in rest of the song to say 'Here we are, we're not like what you're used to'

    It's probably a bit too of a direct interpretation, but it always seemed to make sense to me.
