"Strip It Down" as written by and Bradfield/edwards/jones/moore....
Ain't no fun at the government hall,
Slicked back injustice sits nicely next to smiles,
Paranoia at the heels of too much greed,
Obedience an art form while the sad bleed,

Success and love dictate where skin touches fashion,
Consumerism beauty for cheap appeal,
I don't wanna dance for people to watch,
Smother my life in interest accounts,

Outside life brings down genocide,
And consumer self hate leads to designer bullshit,
Hate is art and we steal cars,
Decaying flowers in the playground of the rich,

You can launch sweetly and say nice things,
But I ain't ever on the way up,
My only way down is on disease that tries to suffocate
The pure ideals that turn to hate,

    General CommentIn my opinion this song is about their hate of consumerism replacing our culture and ultimately becoming it. "Strip it down" is saying they want to destroy the culture and system. "injustice sits nicely next to smiles" is saying that on tv and in newspapers you see politicians smile and say everything's going well, but they spend all day increasing the amount of injustice in the country. "Success and love dictate" is saying we are obsessed with celebrity culture so what they do dictates how we live our lives.
    "Consumerism beauty for cheap appeal" is saying that we see all these products on view, we buy them an they give us a cheap thrill, but it's not relly worth anything. "Decaying flowers in the playground of the rich" is saying the time is up for the rich, and their ideal is "Decaying". "And consumer self-hate leads to designer bullshit" is saying that ohers make you feel worthless and hate yourself if you don't wear all the designer labels.

    My opinion anyway :)
