09. cymbal rush

try to save but it doesnt come off the rug
try to build a wall that is high enough
s'all boiling over
s'all boiling over

try to save your house
try to save your songs
try to run but if follows you up the hill
s'all boiling over
s'all boiling over

your loved ones
your loved ones

a normal conversation
a normal conversation
you should a took me out while you had the chance

all the rooms renumbered and the loosers turned away
dont turn away dont turn away
you should a took me out while you had the chance

there were ten in the bed and the little one said roll over

you should a took him out while you had the chance.

Will you be playing any of these songs live?

Thom: The guys are talking about including some of the songs in the set. They seem well up for it. At the same time, we've got a lot of new songs of our own which we need to sort through first. I don't want to make it a big priority because it would be a lot of hard work to reinterpret stuff like that. It could become a major headache. But Jonny and I did a version of "Cymbal Rush"--that's my favourite--at a benefit show recently [May 1st, at the Koko in London]. It came out quite messy, but we'd only had two days to rehearse it.

Thom: "The words to 'Cymbal Rush' started out coming from a direct experience. But then I filtered out all the' direct experience' connotations until I was left with something else entirely."
--Mojo | July 2006

Thom: In the last song, "Cymbal Rush", the first bit you hear is something I had for three years, one little note. I could hear the melody in there straight away. But if you played it to anyone else without me singing it, you'd think, 'What's he on about?

Were these songs written in a concentrated period?

Thom: Absolutely, except for "Cymbal Rush"--that riff had been around for ages.
