"Batphone" as written by and Alex Turner....
I want an interesting synonym
To describe this thing
That you say we're all grandfathered in
I'll use the search engine (we've got much to discuss)
Too much to discuss
Over a bucket of balls
I can recall the glow of your low beams
It's the big night in Tinsel City
Life became a spectator sport
I launch my fragrance called "Integrity"
I sell the fact that I can't be bought
Have I told you all about the time
That I got sucked into a hole through a hand held device?
I will flashback now and again but I'm usually alright
Thankfully the process has been simplified
Since the last time you tried

I've recognized the glow of your low beams numerous times
I'll be by the Batphone if you need to get a hold
Making a selection
Opening credits roll
Panoramic windows looking out across your soul

You go in through the door
Vengeance trilogy wallpaper walls
They have re-decorated it all
They've changed all the lights and the bar's down the side

I've recognized the glow of your low beams numerous times
Through fairly opaque blinds in the sitting room
Vehicles will pass by but I know when it's you
I'll be in a nose dive in my flying shoes
Right behind your closed eyes like a memory from your youth
I'll be by the Batphone if you need to get a hold
Making a selection
Opening credits roll
Killer pink flamingos
Computer controlled
Panoramic windows looking out across your soul

    General CommentMy virtual reality mask is stuck on "Parliament Brawl"

    If that doesn't sum-up where we are right now, I don't know what does

    General CommentI think the song is about a relationship in the perspective of a woman who’s become a spectator of her own relationship. Like it rambles in about recognize your low beams through fairly opaque blinds in the sitting room and how she tries to call him but gets sucked into a hole through the handheld device. And like when it says it’s the big night in tinsel city, it’s mocking the exucuses the guy makes to go out. If you pay attention to the lyrics, every single phrase points out to this

    General CommentAgree to the above though what the rest of this song means I’d still love to know - it’s like a plethora of individual ideas that have only a very tenuous connection!! (Not sure if there’s a story to it I’m not quite getting).
