(Placebo)
Lyrics and explanation


Placebo

Lyrics : Placebo
I know
I know, you love the song
But not the singer,
I know, you've got me wrapped around your finger,
I know, you want the sin
Without the sinner,
I know, I know.

I know, the past will catch you up
As you run faster,
I know, the last in line is always called a bastard,
I know, the past will catch you up
As you run faster,
I know, I know.

I know, you cut me loose from contradiction,
I know, I'm all wrapped up in sweet attrition,
I know, it's asking for your benediction,
I know, I know.

I know, the past will catch you up
As you run faster,
I know, the last in line is always called a bastard,
I know, the past will catch you up
As you run faster,
I know, I know.

I know, the past will catch you up
As you run faster,
I know, the last in line is always called a bastard,
I know, the past will catch you up
As you run faster,
I know, I know.
Press Quote
Scars : Of course, there's always songs that, even if they weren't singles, they could have been included because they perfectly represent what Placebo's style is.

Brian Molko : Like what song?

Scars :
I think 'I know' is one of those songs...

Brian Molko : I love that song! In fact, it was included in the original tracklist I had thought of, but we couldn't fit everything in the compilation, that's why in interviews I told it was a singles compilation, that it doesn't necessarily mean they're the best songs. Do you know the story behind 'I know'?

Scars : No...

Brian Molko : I was living in New York, thinking about moving there instead of living somewhere in France where I had been living and where I was feeling very down. I don't talk a lot of my private life, but it's very well known and very 'public domain' that I was in a relationship during that time but it didn't work. We really needed to take some time off. So I was in that big city and didn't know anybody. I lost my home, my family and I fell into a very deep depression. We had decided not to talk to eachother but I couldn't bear it anymore. I remember I picked up a phone in some phonebooth in Broadway and called this person and said "see, I know I'm not supposed to be calling you right now, but I really need to talk to you". The song is part of the conversation we had over the phone, there's a lot of guilt in that song. Blind, included in Meds, is a somewhat alike song. The end of a relationship is kind like death. You have a life with someone and just suddendly, everything stops. The saddest part is that the world goes on and people go on minding their own business, without knowing the pain you feel. It's very interesting for an author to write about that.
