"Processed Beats" as written by Sergio Pizzorno and Christopher Karloff....
I ran from the tide
Won't let you hide
Won't let you hide

I drop beats from this processed meat
For a conversation, a meditation and
I cut waves like some unborn sage
Just like terrorists on a day of rest singing

I ran from the tide
Won't let you hide
Won't let you hide

I break bones stealing mobile phones
And I'm cuttin' deals for these homeless meals
Making idle threats using Chinese burns
As you load my head with the Grateful Dead singing

I ran from the tide
Won't let you hide
Won't let you hide
I ran from the tide
Won't let you hide
Won't let you hide

    General Commentapparently this song came about when serge (i think) was flicking through the TV channels, the lyrics are just the random things that were on TV...

    General Comment'Processed Beats' suggests to me that it's about music being 'processed' like some kind of product on a production line. Dunno though. That was my initial thought.

    General CommentDamn, I thought it went "great forgetting" (a drug reference maybe) instead of "Greatful Dead".

    General Commenti love this song. i love how kasabian incorporate hip-hopish beats with techno synths and rock gutiars. its fucking brilliant. the drums in this song kick ass. to me, this song can go many ways. in one way, i can see how he wrote the lyrics just channel surfing, but i can also imagine it being about a crook whose on the run from the cops. great tune to dance to.
