SONG MEANING

“‘Eat that Up, It’s Good for You’ comments on the social phenomenon that is the ‘chav’: girls that will drink you under the table (if they don’t get there first) before taking to the streets in a blur of cheap cosmetics and puke-potential. “It’s just the whole package… too much makeup, drinking like a guy and cycling through short meaningless relationships,” he explains of the bad taste in his mouth. “I just got quite annoyed about the whole thing and decided to write a song about it!” (Source)

SONG LYRICS

You would look a little better
Don’t you know
If you just wore less make-up
But it’s hard to realise
When you’re sky high
Fighting off the spaceshipsAnd so you’re drinking in your room
To make it all go
It didn’t end too soon
You’ve got the next one
You’re holding on too long
You’ve got to let go
Your other love is gone
And you knowIt’s too late
It’s too late
You’ve got another one coming
And it’s going to be the sameIt’s too late
It’s too late
You’ve got another one coming
And it’s going to be the sameI tried to find a quiet place that we could go
To help you make decisions
But I didn’t find it easy to tell them apart
With double vision

And so you’re drinking in your room
To make it all go
It didn’t end too soon
You’ve got the next one
You’re holding on too long
You’ve got to let go
Your other love is gone
And you know

It’s not the same

It’s not the same
It’s not the same
You’re going to tell me that I’m right
You’re going to come back down
And find yourself
Where you are again

You didn’t know

You didn’t know
You didn’t know
So don’t pretend you saw it now
It’s not something you’d want to happen
Now you know who you are again
