"The Living End" as written by William Adam Reid and James Mcleish Reid....
I get ahead on my motorbike
I get ahead on my motorbike
I feel so quick in my leather boots
I feel so quick in my leather boots
My mood is black when my jacket's on
My mood is black when my jacket's on
And I'm in love with myself
And I'm in love with myself
There's nothing else but me
There's nothing else but me
And an empty road
And a cool cool wind and it makes feel so good
Just like I knew it would
Just like I knew it would

I get so wild on my motorbike
I get so wild on my motorbike
I'm breaking loose on this moonlit night
I'm breaking loose on this moonlit night
I cut the road like a sharpened knife
I cut the road like a sharpened knife
And I'm in love with myself
And I'm in love with myself
There's nothing else but me
There's nothing else but me
And an empty road
And a cool cool wind makes me feel so good

I'm moving too fast, I'm moving too fast
I'm moving so fast that I can't control the wheels
I'm moving so fast, I'm moving so fast
Yeah, I'm going for a tree, yeah it's going for me, yeah
My head is dripping into my leather boots.

    General CommentA screaming narsissistic motor bike ride into oblivion.
    I'm guessing that the song was inspired by, then written around some excellent sounding accidental guitar feedback bursts. As Eno says, if you make a mistake, go with it.

    General CommentWilliam said in the interview that was included with the "Munki" reissue, that this song is about a friend of his that died in a motorcycle crash. It's about feeling that you're invincible, and nothing can touch you, and paying the ultimate price.
