"Slice Of Life" as written by Daniel Gaston Ash, Kevin Haskins, David Jay and Peter John Murphy....
Her gaze hit the side of mine
So I opened it out
To destroy what you thought was difference

So I lied to you once again
So I painted over you once again
So I die before you once again
'What's the difference'

Come clearly where the flavour is
Seen here in black and white
You've got two seconds baby boy
In burning light white light
'What's the difference'

Clear up what you are
Burn out these eyes
Rip up this place and scream
'I am your slice of life' (four times)

Shivering under lamposts
Shivering under glass
Your standing on charisma again
God knows it cannot last
'What's the difference'

Ice inside your body
Blood inside your soul

Yet still twelve faces stand around
Hugging your skinny bones
'What's the difference'

So clear up what you are
Burn out these eyes, rip up this place and scream
'I am your slice of life' (four times)

And the car opened him up to so much more
And the money is brighter with a wider smile
And the problem expands inside your head

'I am your slice of life'

    General CommentThis song is a tribute to the artist Barbara Kruger. It takes lines from some of her works (like "Your gaze hits the side of my face" and "I am your slice of life" and "You destroy what you think is difference"). Kruger typically took a black and white photograph and glued on some very acerbic messages in red paper with white or black text that typically heavily criticised consumer culture, materialism, and how it sucks the soul out of society.

    Ice inside your body
    Blood inside your soul
    Yet still twelve faces stand around
    Hugging your skinny bones
    'What's the difference'

    You're dead, everybody is remembering your physical self.


    Clear up what you are
    Burn out these eyes
    Rip up this place and scream
    'I am your slice of life'

    You are only in this body for a while. Clear up what you are. Rip shit up.



    Shivering under lamposts
    Shivering under glass
    Your standing on charisma again
    God knows it cannot last


    You're cold. You're rich. It doesn't matter. Soon enough it will be gone.


    Where 'slice of life' itself is referring to the shortness of this life.

    Who had twelve faces around him all doing fucking nothing?
    And he dies for them...now what's the difference?

    Still he told us that everyone of us can become just like him...
    Is that the difference (versus indifference)?

    BTW. I love all the above reactions!
