It's a shame, plus you have to squint.

Also, whats with the policeman song?

yeah, that's actually the only thing i am disappointed with about TMW. I mean, the album is amazing, and as for the booklet, I really love its design, but I was all excited at the idea of getting the correct lyrics... :(

I'm not so sure Sara. I originally thought from listening to the Mode gig it was 'younger man', but it does sound like 'maps' on the record...

Has anyone managed to decipher Graham's chorus in Pyongyang?

Ong Ong

If you're a land of the social and media feed

I know it has a lot of mistakes and it might end up being totally useless as the lyrics Damon sang at the Mode may differ from the lyrics he actually sings on the album. I guess i just wanted to know i'm babbling the right stuff at the shower :oops:
Thank you very much!
In some websites they say "If you're the landlord, the social on P.S.T", but another ones say "If you're the landlord, the social on B.S.T."

I think that "B.S.T." is correct.

at one of the gigs, when Damon was singing the "social" part he looked at Smog and said "or Smog?" no idea what he meant
