The lyrics on "Cheetah Tongue" and other Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life
tracks venture into the surreal. Matthew Murphy told ABC Radio
he wanted to avoid simply telling "the story of girl meets boy, they have a break-up and s--t goes down."
Instead, the frontman challenged himself to "just spurt out thoughts and things that are happening at the time and see what kind of puzzle they form by the end of the three-and-a-half minutes."
