Inevitable

Lyrics

(1)

Like everybody you see, like everybody you see
The word, this world, the farmer prams

Inevitable

I love to dance
And it’s Saturday again, very logical
You can just then pretend to be many
Say goodbye to your den it's sound
It’s so happy on Saturday
Bounce around on Saturday

The peculiar call in aquarium
In Burmese right on the call line      (2)
The call line     

You have a right to say it
From the law of the planes and the prams

Inevitable
Inedible

Just pretend to be many
Pretend to be many

The radio jam said it
You have a right to say it
It’s beyond capable
In Burmese             
Right on the calling
The calling

Happy times on a Saturday (3) 
The airwaves
Not since the Spring

Inevitable
Inevitable

Bye bye bye baby
Today

The calling

Notes

1. I want to say something about these lyrics, but any interpretation seems to slip away as it approaches my mind, and what's left would wind up sounding silly. I encourage readers to weigh in, and something might fill in for me later.

^

2. Burma figures in the lyrics to "Scenario," which mentions Chindits, British soldiers serving in Burma (Myanmar) during WWII.

^

3. This is a "faint lyrical reminder of 'Neighborhood of Infinity'," as Reformation points out, in which MES proclaims "God bless Saturday."

I wonder if it's "pretend to be Mani" (of the Stone Roses) rather than "many".

And in the context of references to Burma, I wonder if "calling" might be "coelacanth". It's probably not, though.

If we are saying, as in note #2, that the lyrics are reminiscent of "Neighbourhood of Infinity" on the strength of the mention of Saturday, then should it not also be noted that the mention of Burma brings to mind "Scenario" ('Chindits')?

Absolutely, now you mention it.

"The word this world from the prams" seems wrong but I can't quite get what it is, the closest right now I can get is "The word, this world, the farmer prams"

"Denon sound" is gone, there is no chance of that and probably a .0000001% chance of "deinon sound" which is the only other thing I can think of, as bad as "den in sound" seems. "Den it sound" actually sounds closer, or "Say goodbye to your den, it's sound" which also seems ridiculous.

Shit, though, "den it's sound" is phonetically the closest so I am going with it. The most likely thing is the word is not "sound" since it's one of those words that sound like a weird MES pronunciation of something else.

"The calling" sounds like "the jawline." Maybe someone English can listen to this closely and weigh in?

Although the next times it is clearly "c-" the first time seems to be "j-." I'm never sure of "calling" though, it sounds like "call line" maybe though again he pronounces vowels oddly which is why I ask maybe a Brit can hear it more naturally.

It's not "jawline". More like "coal line", at least in the most prominent voal. However, as the vocal line disappearing into the back somewhere there's one echo that seems to be "jawline". That whole section is hard to hear properly.

I wonder if it might be Dönitz sound? I'm feeling a war theme now.

Or "denim"?

Oh dear.

I don't know, but it's definitely "aquarium" and not "query of"...it might even be "peculiar coral" and maybe "coral line"...I made it "call line" for now which seems the most neutral and phonetically close

There's a pram in "Stout Man" but I don't know that it's worth pointing out above

Listening to the Disc 3 outtake now, I can't recall if there's lyrics but I guess I'll find out

Ugh, lots of reverb and impenetrable as always

I'm buying aquarium and call line, but it's still quite obscure.
