"Perpetual Motion Machine" as written by Isaac Brock, Johnny Marr and Joe Plummer....
Daniel read the paragraph
He read until the words ran out
It said we're all in trouble now

Poison in the juice carafe
We drank until our thirst ran out
Oh no, we're in some trouble now

Everyone wants to be a perpetual motion machine
We all try harder as the days run out
We all try harder as the days run out
We all try harder as the days run out

With your teeth to your lips
And your hair to the ground
Well, you hear the fish and they're making this sound
Saying, "We just want to go on walking around
And feel what it's like to fall down"

Patrick ran the race
Yeah, he ran until the tire ran out
Oh no, I'm in some trouble now

Tried to kick it over
I tried until the juice ran out
Oh no, we want more trouble now

With your teeth to your lips
And your hair to the ground
Well, you hear the fish and they're making this sound
Saying, "We just want to go on walking around
And feel what it's like to fall down"

I saw

Everyone wants to be a perpetual motion machine
We all try harder as the days run out
We all try harder as the days run out
We all try harder as the days run out

    General CommentHeard this last night... have to say I'm pretty excited for aug.4th...
    I like it. reminds me of Steam engenius a little.
    But did anyone else notice the whole "blame yourself"
    "With your teeth to your lips
    And your hair to the ground
    Well, you hear the fish and they're making this sound
    Saying, "We just want to go on walking around
    And feel what it's like to fall down"
    ?

    Blame yourself has to be one of my favorite songs of all time it was pretty cool to hear that line in a recorded song.

    It would be amazing if they would release a professionally recorded version of blame yourself... but one can only dream.

    Anyways I think the song is about just going on with life and experiencing things before you die.
