Lyrics and explanation


Meds 2006 - Placebo

Lyrics : Placebo
Follow the Cops Back Home
The call to arms was never true,
Time to imbibe, here's to you,
I'll tell you stories bruised and blue,
Of drum machines and landslides,
Just one more round before we're through,
More psychedelic yuppie flu,
It's such a silly thing to do,
And now we're stuck on rewind,

Let's follow the cops back home,
Follow the cops back home,
Let's follow the cops back home,
And rob their houses.

The call to arms was never true,
Let's take a ride and push it through,
Suspended animation glue,
And blame it on apartheid,
Let's spend the night in Jimmy Choo's,
I'll give you coats and cheap shampoo,
I'll give you nothing else to do
And now we're stuck on rewind.

Let's follow the cops back home,
Follow the cops back home,
Let's follow the cops back home,
And rob their houses. (x2)

The call to arms was never true,
I'm medicated, how are you,
Let's take a dive, swim right through,
Sophisticated points of view.

Let's follow the cops back home,
Follow the cops back home,
Let's follow the cops back home,
And rob their houses. (x2)
Press Quotes
(Translation, quote in French here)

"This track was inspired by Iceland. The first time we went there, it was the summer, there were 24 hours of sunlight per day. We calculated that 3% of the population came to our gig, which was small though. Nobody lives out there. While driving in the countryside to see volcanoes and geysers, we didn't see a cop. It was so weird! You wonder what people do over there ! And 2 weeks ago, I met Sigur Ros. These guys are 25 years old and have 7 years old kids. Seeing that, I told them, "Are you crazy? Is there at this point nothing to do in Iceland?" They replied "No, that's why we fuck and get drunk." This trip in Iceland inspired us, made us think about what you do when you live in a place like Luxembourg and Iceland where there is nothing to do. Most of the time, you fool around. In the end, this song, like many others on the album, is about alcohol. You get drunk in a bar, you meet another drunk guy, you decide that he is your new best friend, and straight away, you go and do foolish things. This foolish thing is to follow the cops back home to rob their houses. After listening to it, if some guy says it is a cool idea, he deserves to go to jail. This is the most stupid thing that can be done!"

Brian Molko, Rock Mag April 2006



Radio interview XFM
‘Follow The Cops Back Home’ [listen]
“We wondered what teenagers get up to in Iceland, which we visit regularly, as there is no police and barely any crime.”

Brian Molko, XFM, March 2006
