Synthesized voice on Hoping for a Miracle

Still enjoying Hotspot here and love "Hoping for a Miracle", but what on earth is that synthesized voice saying at the start and at intervals through the song? It's clearly saying some sort of words. Perhaps it's completely obvious and I'm the only other person in the world who doesn't get it, but I'd love to know :-)

(I rarely post here, but love reading all your stuff!)

Hi there

Is the answer:

It’s been this way
since life began
The child lives on
inside the man
You have to eat
You need to sleep
You sometimes feel
you’re in too deep

?

Hi! I thought that, but it's a fairly short sample like "Da Da Da -Dada-aaa" LOL, that example probably makes no sense :-)

In a dog eats dog world people will do anything to be successful, even if it means hurting others.

Yes, now you mention it I can hear “Dog eat dog world”. Funny how that had never stood out to me before.

I do believe you're right! Well at least, that's all I can hear now.

(having said that, someone once told me to imagine the line "We're up all night to get lucky" in Daft Punk's song where the robots start singing as "We rub a Mexican monkey" - perhaps I'm just easily convinced).

Having said that, thank you very much :-)

That's pretty plausible too. Darn, I'd love to know what it really is now!!!

It does sound like that, but I’d love to know how you’re so sure.
