About Lazer Beam

"Lazer Beam" is a single by Super Furry Animals. It was the only single to be released from the Love Kraft album and reached #28 in the UK Singles Chart. The song is "about making your own reality" and tells the story of aliens coming down to earth to shoot humans with laser beams which "make them intelligent rather than being jerks". Some of singer Gruff Rhys's lyrics were lifted from a speech made by Tony Blair at the Labour Party Conference in 2004. Although critical response to the track was mostly positive, with some journalists hailing "Lazer Beam" as a "return to form", some reviews were scathing with the NME even going so far as to call it "the worst Furries song ever" in their review of 2007's Hey Venus!Two music videos were produced to accompany the song's release as a single. The first, directed by Palumbo & Coch, features a fluorescent cityscape with the band and a monster with their 'SFA' logo, appearing between the translucent buildings while the second, directed by Aurelien and Florian Marrel, features a fictional sideways-scrolling arcade beat 'em up in the style of Metal Slug and Michael Jackson's Moonwalker.

Introducing a radical new vision 
No more imperial colonial bastards 
No more romantic comedies 
This is a fanfare introduction 
To a high-powered purposeful theme 

[Repeat: x4]
Take a shine of our lazer beam 
And we'll cleanse all the evil within you 

The resistance 
In the distance 
Creeping closer 
Have no fear 
Land in anguish 
We escape it 
In our rocket 
Propelled spaceship 

Take a shine of our lazer beam 
And we'll cleanse all the evil within you 
Take a shine of our lazer beam 
And we'll cleanse all the evil within you 
Take a shine of our lazer beam 
And we'll cleanse all the evil within you 
Take a shine of our lazer beam 
And we'll cleanse all the evil within you 

Human being 
Human doing 
Human error 
Human terror 
Human nature 
Human hate you 
Human crying 
Human leaving 

[Repeat: x4]
Take a shine of our lazer beam 
And we'll cleanse all the evil within you 

We will conquer utopia in space chariots 

[Repeat: x8]
Take a shine of our lazer beam 
And we'll cleanse all the evil within you 

Point your random finger 
Point it to the sky 
Point your random finger 
Come on and testify 
Human kind loves money 
We just love to fly 
(Fly, fly, fly) 
So point your random finger 
Come on and testify
