"Biscuit" as written by and Geoff Barrow Beth Gibbons....
I'm lost, exposed
Stranger things will come your way
It's just I'm scared
Got hurt along time ago
I can't make myself heard
No matter how hard I scream
Oh sensation
Sin, slave of sensation

Full fed yet I still hunger
Torn inside
Haunted I tell myself, yet I still wander
Down, inside, its tearing me apart
Oh sensation
Sin, slave of sensation

At last, relief
A mother's son has left me sheer
The shores I seek
Are crimson tastes devine
I can't make myself heard
No matter how hard I scream
Oh sensation
Sin slave of sensation

    General CommentThere is a story behind this song. Here is my guess:

    "I'm lost, exposed
    Stranger things will come your way"
    Its just I'm scared
    Got hurt along time ago
    I can't make myself heard no matter how hard I scream"

    She is laying naked in front of a man after their sexual intercourse and she is wandering in doubts
    is this man gonna hurt her also like a previous man did. She is feeling vulnerable beside this man that's why the things will come his way. The man can't hear her fears. She already feels that he is gonna leave her.



    "Ohh sensation
    Sin, slave of sensation"

    This part points to that she can not deny her sensations and be the first one to escape even if she wants to.

    "Full fed yet I still hunger"
    Torn inside
    Haunted I tell myself, yet I still wander
    Down, inside, its tearing me apart"

    Here she is talking about her physical self which she is satisfied with. Her problem lays way deeper in her soul and her emotions. She cannot work it out alone and it's tearing her apart.


    "At last, relief
    A mothers son has left me sheer
    The shores I seek
    Are crimson tastes devine
    I can't make myself heard, no matter how hard I scream"

    Finally her doubt was approved. She was left. "A mothers son" is used to show that she really wanted to identify with that man and/or that some part of her didn't believed in what her intuition told her. She understands that she was holding on to the wrong shore. And she again wants to scream so somebody could help her but nobody hears her.

    By the way the background says "I will never fall in love again" that's what we usually tell to ourselves after we get hurt by love. But we all are "slaves of sensations" and we keep coming back to it.

    General CommentI think this song is about how no matter how many biscuits you eat it never seems to satisfy your hunger in the way a real meal does. This phenomenon also extends to sweets, chocolate and other junk food not mentioned in the song. No, really... I don't have a clue :|
