Re-Wired

Re-Wired was written by Sergio Pizzorno and is the 8th track on Velociraptor!. It was released on 20 November 2011 as the second single off the album and peaked at #96 in the UK charts.

BackgroundEdit

In an interview with Q Magazine Serge said about Re-Wired: "It starts off with a Stonesy, disco groove, then locks in with this chorus which sounds like Nirvana, almost."[1] Lyrically, it is said to be about seeing a girl in a club and wanting to take her home.[2] The song also contains a reference to photographer Mick Rock's exhibition, and subsequent book, Blood & Glitter.[1]

LiveEdit

Re-Wired was first played live on the French TV show Album de la Semaine on 31 August 2011 and has been a permanent part of the set ever since. It has also been performed acoustically in many radio sessions. During live performances Serge sometimes sings a snippet of Cameo's Word Up, and occasionally other songs, like The Rolling Stones' Miss You. Since the beginning of the 48:13 Tour in 2014, Re-Wired has a new intro, and during the UK tour at the end of the year a longer part of Word Up was performed at the end of the song.

The Re-Wired video was directed by Thomas Carty and shows the band in a car chase, trying to evade their pursuers in a number of different vehicles, including a tandem bicycle. It also features a cameo by Noel Fielding, reprising his role as Vlad the Impaler. The video was filmed on a very hot day in October, and according to Tom, was "painful fun".[3] It was released on 21 October 2011 and contains a reference to Julie & The Moth Man.

LyricsEdit

I feel like the time has come
A fearless rescue from everyone
Who made you the master
The lady caster
I found you looking for a good time

I was out in exile
Perfecting my style
I knew you wanted a reaction

Hit me
Harder
I'm getting re-wired
I flip the switch
That makes you feel electric

Even
Faster
Than before
Gonna light 'em up with you
Gonna light 'em up with you

Try to keep up you scatter brain
She will enter through your vein

Who was your creator
The one who made you
The flame I need to heat the silver
You'd bring gods to their knees
Pick out the bad seeds
Relieve the generals of their duties

Hit me
Harder
I'm getting re-wired
I flip the switch
That makes you feel electric

Even
Faster
Than before
Gonna light 'em up with you
Gonna light 'em up with you

Who made you the master
The lady caster
I found you looking for a good time
Now this blood and glitter
It tastes so bitter
There's no retreat for I surrender

Hit me
Harder
I'm getting re-wired
I flip the switch
That makes you feel electric

Even
Faster
Than before
Gonna light 'em up with you
Gonna light 'em up with you
