"Royal Correspondent" as written by and Bradfield/jones/moore....
You've been this way since school
Dysfunctional, translucent
Royalty on your wall
So desperately mundane

They're inbred baby just like you
But you'd love the chance to eat their food
Even though it has been chewed

Royal correspondent
Sad and lonely
Royal correspondent
Kills her daily

Dream of the Daily Mail
It is the Holy Grail
And then the BBC
Your life would be complete

Build a fountain, wash away the poor
Just as long as your motives are pure
Hold on tight or you just might lose her

Royal correspondent
Wears their Sunday best
Royal correspondent
Smarter than the rest

Royal correspondent
Smarter than the rest
Royal correspondent
Smarter than the rest

Royal correspondent
Smarter than the rest
Royal correspondent
Smarter than the rest

Smarter than the rest

    General Commentit seems like the song is about the paparazzi, and how they're so desperate to gain even the slightest bit of information about the royals. It makes them seem sort of pathetic, it's a wonderful song though

    My InterpretationAlways loved this song...Therapeautic drums, and no matter how loud I turn it up, it is never enough when the harsh guitar comes out at the end. I dont think it is about the paparazzi. For me, it always conjures up images of developing nations seen through the eyes of a person who is obsessed with trying to make a difference in the world("Build a fountain...") while also being unhealthily obsessed with the mockery that is the English monarchy. I think the Daily Mail-BBC verse signifies the pro-British stance of the person being spoken about. I am probably wrong though, and I have no idea where "hold on tight or you just might lose her" fits in?
    On another note, I relate this song closely with "Of Walking Abortion", as i think both songs seem to be saying (in a very complex way) 'you are wasting your life, you should be doing more, stop kidding yourselves'....but as i said, that might be just in my head eh.
