He's got a brand new car
Looks like a jaguar
It's got leather seats
It's got a CD player

But I don't wanna talk about it anymore

I think we're gonna make it
I think we're gonna save it
So don't you try and fake it
Anymore, anymore

We'll start over again
Grow ourselves new skin
Get a house in Devon
Drink cider from a lemon

But I don't wanna talk about it anymore

I think we're gonna make it
I think we're gonna save it
So don't you try and fake it
Anymore, anymore

I think we're gonna make it
I think we're gonna save it
So don't you try and fake it
Anymore, anymore

He's got a brand new car
He's got a brand new car

A brand new car
A brand new car
A brand new car

I think we're gonna make it
I think we're gonna save it
So don't you try and fake it
Anymore, anymore

I think we're gonna make it
I think we're gonna save it
So don't you try and fake it
Anymore, anymore

    I thought it was 'drink cider from eleven', which is the time pubs open in england. So when they live in this house in Devon, they will be in the pub drinking cider at 11am.

    feeder is a good band.. and jon lee... remembered. i was in dublin, ireland finishing my finals when i heard this song and the aforementioned band on MTV, it glued to me immediately. i always fancied good music arrangements from any rock songs. this one certainly has it.. simplicity in its own originality. keep up the good work - my wish to feeder.

    The song that got me into Feeder. The car is a metaphor for the journey of life I think, not a real car. It's just about completely starting again (as the 2nd verse shows)

    Do they actually say "Buck Rogers" in the song, like the lyrics suggest?

    They do, StarmanDX, but its rather distorted. I personally didn't hear it until I listened for it.

    Buck Rodgers is actually about Grant's ex-girlfriend and her new boyfriend showing off in his 'brand new car' we can assume that it resembled a Jaguar, and it's safe to say that it had an in-built CD player lol, i love this song, it's amazing catchy

    The name "Buck Rogers" comes from a space hero who was sent 500 years into the future and returns to earth. My suggestion is that the part where he says "let's start over again" has something to do with this.

    Good song; rock on!

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

Dreamwalker
Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

No Surprises
Radiohead
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.

Amazing
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.
