"Someone Do Something" as written by David James Ford, Jo Louise Taylor and Glenn Russell Hooper....
it's like you clean yourself by rolling in shit
you clear your head by pouring stuff into it
we're going crazy for a plasticine boy
we've got a wedding list of what to enjoy
this entertainment is an ugly affair
it's getting naked for a billionaire
i'll be a cynical and impotent clone
airbrush my ass into a hollywood home
alright.....
......the disillusioned sit, we look at each other and we sing...
someone's got to do something
but i don't think it's going to be me
someone's got to say something
but it's not
it's not going to be
it's not going to be
me
investigating allegations of sleaze
100 secretaries fall to their knees
get me a smile like a funeral star
do me a favour in a luxury car
we're going crazy for that plasticine cool
and all the concubines are filling the pool
this entertainment is an ugly affair
we're getting naked for a billionaire
alright.....
......the disillusioned sit, we look at each other and we sing...
someone's got to do something
but i don't think it's going to be me
someone's got to say something
but it's not
it's not going to be
it's not going to be
me

    General CommentNo one seems to agree with me, but this song reminds me of Muse, especially their song Cave, it's the way he sings the chorus. Anyone hear it?

    General Commenthe'd be doing a kinda whiney scream more if he was being like muse, muse are more like star sailor or jeff buckley in the way they do choruses like that anyway

    General Commentjeff buckely sucks ass majorly, muse are amazin live though but dont like studio stuff. radiohead?LOL dont get me started on them,pass me the razor blades, load the bath n crack on the bends, suicide music to the extremes,too depressin. wat u all need is a bit of the hardware ep or warfare ep by the cooper temple clau$e. respect to them,unique mixture almost every genre of music, if u can classify them as one genre,ur far too narrowly minded :D

    General Commentnot at all muse like. that is an insult to easyworld. have you never seen them live?! if not you're too late, shame on you

    MAYBE it's about celebrity life and the fact that the rich and famous can get away with everything, while doing nothing
