Discotraxx
Ladytron Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

(Bulgarian)

I know her, used to follow everywhere we'd go
And it's so sweet, now she's sleeping with a boy I know
The boy I know, knows a pretty girl in every town
And the way they look, they were made to let each other down

she got her face from the same house where she stole her clothes
On the same street, there's a dance hall where nobody goes
Far too far, stealing cigarettes with '90s girls
And then at Christmastime, 'till we exceed the recommended dose

(more Bulgarian)

I know her, used to follow everywhere we'd go
And it's so sweet, now she's sleeping with a boy I know
The boy I know, knows a pretty girl in every town
And the way they look, they were made to let each other down

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Ladytron's "Discotraxx" paint a picture of a girl who used to be in the same circles as the singer, but has now moved on and is sleeping with someone the singer knows. The song reflects on the superficiality of their world, with the girl's appearance being credited to her ability to steal clothes and her face seemingly being a product of cosmetic surgery. The line "And the way they look, they were made to let each other down" suggests that the relationships in this world are fragile and doomed to fail.


The second verse speaks of stealing cigarettes with "90s girls" and exceeding the recommended dose of something unknown, possibly drugs or alcohol. Again, the scene is one of excess and recklessness, with a nod to the nostalgia of previous decades.


Overall, the lyrics of "Discotraxx" capture the hedonistic nature of a youth culture that is more concerned with appearance and instant gratification than with deeper connections or lasting relationships. The use of Bulgarian in the lyrics could be seen as a nod to the band's Eastern European roots, adding to the sense of otherness and mystery that runs throughout the song.
