Treat was written by Sergio Pizzorno and is the is the 6th track on 48:13.

BackgroundEdit

Having taken five months to write,[1] Treat is, according to Tom, "about looking in the mirror at your bad self." Elaborating on the evil twin lyric, he said that he and Serge are each other's evil twin, while Serge explained that it refers to another side of your personality that might get you into trouble, but also has "something amazing" about it.[2][3] Serge named it as his favourite song on the record, as well as Kasabian's defining song.[4][5]

LiveEdit

Treat was first performed live on 23 May 2014 in Dundee and has been a part of the set since. Starting from Kasabian's Summer Solstice gig in Leicester in June 2014, the song usually features an extensive laser show during its second half, depending on the size of the venue.

QuotesEdit

"It's the centerpiece of the album, I think. It's become really special. The reaction we got when we first played it... it was a really joyous moment. That song is so obnoxious. It's so wrong to say those words, it just made me laugh. When we were recording, we knew that it couldn't just end, so in the spirit of Syd Barrett or Tangerine Dream, we sent it off into this insane Chicago house type thing."
— Serge (PopMatters, 3 November 2014)

LyricsEdit

Everybody knows
I work it, work it like a treat
I said now everybody knows
I work it, work it like a treat
I said now everybody knows
I work it, work it like a treat
I said now everybody knows
I work it, work it like a treat

What is this that stands before me
Shaking in the mirror
He is called my evil twin
Got me jumping out my skin
Forgive me, where's my manners
Please allow my introduction
'Cause I'm gonna get you hit
I am gonna get you lit

Reach out and touch me
'Cause I gotta
I gotta know

Everybody knows
I work it, work it like a treat
I said now everybody knows
I work it, work it like a treat
I said now everybody knows
I work it, work it like a treat
I said now everybody knows
I work it, work it like a treat

Work it like a treat
Everybody
Work it like a treat
Everybody
Work it like a treat
Everybody
I work it

I'm stood here naked with a junkie sinking margaritas
I swear I don't remember anything
Where were we last, I think we separated deep in Leicester
How could you ditch me in the state I'm in

And if you want to witness
What goes on behind the curtain
He is just as cracked as you
So be careful if you do

Reach out and touch me
'Cause I gotta
I gotta go

Everybody knows
I work it, work it like a treat
I said now everybody knows
I work it, work it like a treat
I said now everybody knows
I work it, work it like a treat
I said now everybody knows
I work it, work it like a treat

Work it like a treat
Everybody
Work it like a treat
Everybody
Work it like a treat
Everybody
