Build Your Own Enemy
I’m a big fan of this tune. Most of our songs began their lives as a few idle doodles on my computer which we build upon over the weeks to arrive at a completed song. This one however just flew out of the fingers and mouth fully formed (melody, rhythm and lyrics almost all in one go).
It’s nice when you can create something in such a sort space of time. It’s almost as if the song was already there and you just found it behind the sofa like a pound coin or an unused…well never mind.
As for the meaning of the song; well a person who never made an enemy, never made anything did they?
