Song meaningEdit

Jonny Sniper is described by Rou in the March 10th issue of Kerrang! magazine saying this of the song: "It's about people having no respect for the earth. The lyrics are about the earth crying out, telling us to behave". This is similar to the description given for the song "No Sssweat" by the band at live shows. They were present in other areas as well when a demo version of the track, less produced, with different lyrics and a slightly different structure, was featured on Enter Shikari's third demo EP 'Anything Can Happen In The Next Half Hour'. The band has claimed that "Johnny Sniper" is the name of the comic figure that appeared in their Key Stage 3 sex education lessons. Furthermore, during many gigs on their 2007 tour, promotional Jonny Sniper condoms were handed out.

LyricsEdit

A whisper from the wind, and I can't help but listen.

A crashing of white waves, and I cant help but listen.

They're trying to entertain and I cant help but...

(Painting A Picture Of Myself) And I'll always be here for another. Over and over and I'll always be here.

The screaming of the earth and I cant help but listen.

They're trying to entertain, but I can't help but...

(Painting A Picture Of Myself) And I'll always be here for another. Over and over and I'll always be here.

This is all I need to feel alive.
(Painting A Picture Of Myself)
And always be here for another.
Over and over and I'll always be here. (x2) This is all I need to feel alive. (x9)
