"Eight Ball" as written by and Darren Paul Emerson Karl Hyde....
Today
Today

I saw a man
Today
I saw a man
Using an empty whiskey flask
As a walkie talkie

Today
Today

I saw a man
Today
I saw a man
With a flaming eight ball
Tattooed on his arm

Today
Today
Today

I saw a man
Today
I saw a man
Using an empty whiskey flask
As a walkie talkie

Today
I met a man
Who threw his arms around me

And you give in...
Today...
We laughed
We laughed waiting for a train
For a few into the city
Seconds today
That great stuff
That great stuff
That stuff
That stuff makes me feel waiting for a train
Feel into the city
Feel today
Happy today

    General CommentThis song means that some guy is doing crack and some guy is using an empty whiskey flask as a walkie talkie because he's high on something, and he can't stop saying the word "today" because he has a hard time stringing together coherent sentences because he's had one snort too many. I'm pretty sure all of Underworld's stuff written from the perspective of a crackhead, but their music is awesome.

    General CommentI think of the movie The Beach (I admit it, I'm a fan) and this song is perfect in it.
