Fools on parade
Cavort and carry on for waiting eyes
That you would rather be beside than in front of
But she's never been the kind to be hollowed by the stares

She swam out of tonight's phantasm
Grabbed my hand and made it very clear
There's absolutely nothing for us here

It's a magnolia celebration
To be attended on a Wednesday night
It's better than to get a reputation
As a miserable little tyke
At least that's the conclusion
She came to in this overture

And the secret door swings behind us
She's saying nothing
She's just giggling along

Her arms were folded most indignant
Not looking like she was soon to leave
I had to squint in order to believe

And then like a butler pushing on a bookshelf
And unveiling the unexpected
I who was earlier reluctant
Was suddenly embarrassed and corrected
How could such a creature
Survive in such a habitat?

And the secret door swings behind us
She's saying nothing
She's just giggling along
And even if they were to find us
I wouldn't notice
I'm completely occupied

As all the fools on parade
Cavort and carry on for waiting eyes
That you would rather be beside than in front of
But she's never been the kind to be hollowed by the stares

Fools on parade
Frolic and fuck about to make a gaze
Turn to a scribble on a page by a picture
That holds her absence but you're daft to think she'd care

Fools on parade
Fools on parade
Fools on parade conduct a sing-along

Ooh, they're good, aren't they.
I like it twice as much as the first go-round 2->4
This band has really changed their sound.  I have to say I love both "eras" of them, though not in one listening.
I liked this band's earlier work.  Much more creative.  

This is just ho-hum (as is said below many times)!
Tedious.{#No}
I like those drums..they have their power..
I really enjoyed their early output, but this seems to drift, bit sort of like nowhere-ish? Maybe?
One for the nay-Pod
What happened to the arctic's?  2 Great albums without a bad track between them and then they go all sad and limp with this latest offering.  Bah humbug i say.
Nice!!

My thoughts exactly — that song (and many Arctic Monkey songs) leaves me cold...

toomanyollys,,{#Lol},,,,I didn't hear it so I can't rate it,,but I am sure dead air from
Bill must be worth more than a fiver !


Ho-Humbug
The songs I've heard from this CD on RP show the AMs going in an experimental neo-psychedelic direction, which I'm not sure is good or not, though it's certainly interesting. Nice to see that Sheffield's finest are still at it, though, and still singing about local life in tyke accents.
OK, who just voted this a 7? The quality of the silence was barely a 5 imho...
Phew, I thought for a while I had lost my RP connection!
Dead Air as well for me.
Right now, all I'm getting is dead air for this one...
