This song is the boys at their best - atmospheric intro, moving lyrics, stately melody.
When Neil sings Hello Hello Is Anyone Out There it evokes the 3am feeling of feeling lost and confused so well that its heartbreaking.

Any idea on what the vocodered voice is saying? The only bit that's not available in the official lyrics?
What shocks me more is that the first seven seconds have the "It's been this way since life began" verse in a very distorted, barely audible way. Bowie-esque!
To me it says "falling down".
To me it's formidable joie formidable ah ah (in french).

Official site lyrics have the closing spoken word ALSO at the start

Gives me hope of an extended mix!

No, that's not the reason why. You can faintly hear it in the first 7 seconds. Just crank the volume up!

Yes, the 'in too deep' spoken bit bubbles away during the first few seconds of the song...

The vocoder - I'm hearing 'stop me going on'....
Firing verbal shots.......like a Tommy Gun

One of the best on the album. I'm also hoping for an old-school eight or nine minute extended mix to expose parts of the track. Hopefully we'll get this as a mix on a forthcoming single.

Ohhhh OK I get it now, thanks for pointing it out... wow that's quite an inaudible bit of lyric!

That second verse. Highlight of the album for me. Pure bliss.
