Songfacts®:

  • Frontman Tunde Adebimpe shares the band's lyric writing with guitarist Kyp Malone. Adebimpe told The Independent November 3, 2008 that his lyrics are a form of meditation. He explained: "It sounds simplistic but what I write is based on a life experience, filtered through a process. You could write a story that says I was surfing the web, got sick of myself and so I went to a bar; and then I got sick of the people there and hated them as much as I hated myself; so I went home and fell asleep disgusted with myself. 'Dancing Choose' in many ways is that song. It is an extract with lines thrown together that hopefully works as well as a poem does, and gives enough of a description of a scene."
