Meds 2006 - Placebo

Lyrics : Placebo
One of a Kind
On top of the world you get nothing done,
Talk is cold and burns like the sun,
Can't you see these skies are breaking,
'Cause the top of the word is where I'm from,
The back of the class is where I was,
Keeping quiet playing dumb,
Can't you see these skies are breaking,
Cos the back of the class is where I'm from.

And I am one,
I am,
I am one,
I am, I am, I am, I am, I am.

I'm on a race and it's killing time,
I don't need yours I'll keep it with mine,
Can't you see these skies are breaking,
'Cause I'm on a race and I'm doing fine, thank you,
Two of a kind no one home,
I'm in a crowd and I'm still alone,
Can't you see the skies are breaking,
'Cause one of a kind is all I own.

I am one,
I am,
I am one,
I am, I am, I am, I am, I am.

Out of the womb and into the void,
I wanna try but I get annoyed,
Can't you see these skies are breaking,
'Cause I'm out of the womb and into the void.

I am one,
I am,
I am one,
I am, I am, I am, I am, I am (x2)

On top of the world you get nothing done.
Press Quotes
(Translation, quote in French here)

"With Because I Want You, it's our most recent track. At the end of the recording, the label called us at the studio and said:"Write us singles", and we answered "Fuck You! We are going into the studio to write something with the distorsion to 100%." We got One Of A Kind, and we don't even know if it will come out as a single. It's strange to sit in the studio and hatch a single. We wanted this track to be poppy, and on one side it is, there is a twisted vibration à la Pixies. It's about feeling like you're out of place in the world. You know that you've got one, but it doesn't suit you. At the same time, you realize that you are unique, that there is only one you. "

Brian Molko, Rock Mag April 2006



Radio interview XFM
‘One Of A Kind’ [listen]
“About feeling completely dislocated from the world and not feeling like a real person anymore.”

Brian Molko, XFM, March 2006
