"Out of Mind" as written by Robert James Smith, Simon Gallup, Roger O'donnell, Porl Thompson, Laurence Andrew Tolhurst and Boris Williams....
I've been up for days and I feel like a menagerie
I'm scratching 'til I bleed and I keep on seeing
Imaginary lemurs in the street in the middle of the day
But as long as I can breathe then I know I'll be okay

I'll be alright
I'm out of mind
I'm out of sight
I'm out of sight, yeah yeah

I've been up for days and I feel like a laboratory rat
Inside a maze and I reel in the monotony of
Screaming at the moon in the middle of the day
But as long as I can see it then I know I'll be okay

I'll be fine
I'm out of sight
I'm completely out of mind
Completely out of mind

Oh, oh, okay, alright
Come and watch me shake tonight
Mouth wide, soft and bright
Bite my hand and scream

Okay, alright
Come and watch me break tonight
Push deep out of sight
Bite my hand and hold on tight

    General CommentThis song is obviously about Star Wars. It describes C3PO's grueling trek through the Tattooine' desert about having an emergency landing on the planet in A New Hope.

    General CommentAccording to Robert Smith this song's about drugs, and I think that alone basically explains it all. It's about someone who's so addicted to drugs that they dominate their life.

    "But as long as I can breathe
    Then I know I'll be OK"

    As long as he feels he's got some kind of hold on awareness, he's quite happy to let the drugs retain control of him, as far as he can see he's OK. He's completely detached from reality, yet he's happy with it, so he's genuinely out of mind. I think in the last verse he's trying to convince someone else to join him in a trip, share the fun of the delusion.
