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...

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
