"Sugar Coated Iceberg" as written by Nicholas Jones and Zachary Broudie....
I don't care what songs you sing
Or how you think of all those pointless things
Sweet nothings what you bring
So fly away on sugar coated wings

[Chorus:]

I'm sinking deep, I'm going under
That sugar coated iceberg tastes so sweet
Until you tumble those sugar coated lies

All those tricky things you said
On angel wings they're flying around my head
You were cheap but I was sold
I should forget you but I won't be told

Sweet and sour as gold and coal
A sugar iceberg stole my soul
And hid it deep inside my heart
Threw it through me like a poison dart

My little, sweet, sugar coated iceberg
You melt beneath my feet
You shook me up
But then I tumbled those sugar coated lies

    General CommentI like this song, but no-one's going to notice because this site pays no attention to any music more than 10 seconds old. It'll be 5 years before I get a reply. This is the Lightning Seeds' best song I think.

    Brit Pop Rox!

    General CommentI agree, this is my favorite song by the Lightning Seeds, and lol, britpop rocks.

    What I think it means: Well, obviously it seems like it's about drugs... but that's about the only thing I can get from it. I love the song but the meaning of the lyrics is a bit confusing!

    Other than that, this song is addictive, every time I listen to it once I have to listen to it again. It's a disease! :P

    General CommentI think this song is about how a woman lied to a guy, but was so sweet that he always fell into her traps and was always absorbed by her lies because she was so sweet. She was a sugarcoated iceberg cause she seemed so sweet and good, but was quite dangerous.

    Anyways this is my idea, please leave a post if u disagree or have a different opinion

    General CommentI initially thought it was about an untrustworthy lover, but on my last few listens I noticed the drug connotations. Quite clever: maybe it's intentionally ambiguous?
