"Love Is Noise" as written by and Richard Ashcroft Nick Mccabe....
Will those feet in modern times
Walk on soles that are made in China?
Through the bright prosaic malls
And the corridors that go on and on and on

Are we blind ? Can we see?
We are one, incomplete
Are we blind ? In the city
Waiting for lightning to be saved, yeah
'Cause love is noise, love is pain
Love is these blues that I?m singing again

Love is noise, love is pain
Love is these blues that I'm singing
Again, again, again, again, again

Will those feet in modern times
Understand this world's affliction?
Recognize the righteous anger?
Understand this world's addiction?

I was blind, couldn't see
What was here in me
I was blind - insecure
Felt like the road was way too long, yeah

'Cause love is noise, love is pain
Love is these blues that I'm singing again
Love is noise, love is pain
Love is these blues that I'm singing again
Love is noise, love is pain
Love is these blues that I'm feeling again
Love is noise, love is pain
Love is these blues that I'm singing
Again, again, again, again, again, again, again

'Cause love is noise, love is pain
Love is these blues that you're feeling again
Love is noise, love is pain
Love is these blues that I'm singing
Again, again, again, again, again, again, again

All those feet in modern times
Walk on soles made in China
Will those feet in modern times
See the bright prosaic malls
Will those feet in modern times
Recognize the heavy burden
Will those feet in modern times
Pardon me for my sins?
Love is noise

    General CommentIt's borrowing from 'Jerusalem' by William Blake.

    'And did those feet in ancient time
    Walk upon England's mountains green?
    And was the holy Lamb of God
    On England's pleasant pastures seen?

    And did the Countenance Divine
    Shine forth upon our clouded hills?
    And was Jerusalem builded here
    Among these dark Satanic Mills?'

    etc.

    The first two lines of the song are a present-day interpretation of Blake's - both question society [Blake critcises the industrial revolution of the 18th century, Ashcroft on globalisation/capitalism/mass-production].
