Additional Information

Song meaning as told by Jon: "That's about when I was living with a particular Leo Goth, years ago, before we recorded Churn. It's about pretentious, cliquey social groups, which tends to happen a bit in Wellington, and it's just about the whole cool-club scenario. Especially with the history of this band: we started off as a pack of nerds, and I still think we are nerds, but it's been funny how certain people that thought we were nerdy at the start, now think we're cool. It's just about hypocrisy and catching a few people out". Rip It Up, Oct. 1996


You are so majestic, so skillful
In the way that you make me sick
You are the perfect one
The only one for you

And now even though that it's true
Still see a lot of myself in you
And now even thought that it's true
It's only 'cause I'm a Leo

It's so oh oh overly strange
I'm a rebel in my brain
But I'm just a midget
When it comes to being saved

Beware little girl
Your oh so cool clubs
Could be passing judgment on you
You're so exclusive
So elusive
That you're not quite human

And now even though that is true
What else could a lost girl do
And now even though that is true
It's probably 'cause you're a Leo

Thank you so much for the conversation
I guess I'll be leaving now
Thank you for your words of inspiration
I guess I'll be going
