There really should be a BAD interpretation thread ranging from "This is" right the way through to "Fpunk" Yes i know the opinions could get very off target but it would make interesting reading to see other peoples interpretation of all those songs.

SAID THE LOST ARCHANGEL TAKE THE SEAT
ITS LONDON TOWN LETS MAKE A BEAT
THE MORNING STAR HE THEN GOES TOO FAR
WITH AN L-U-C-I-F-E-R
I'm the all night drug prowling wolf
Who looks so sick in the sun

Think the street gang might have been mentioned in the film. There's certainly footage of Mick and Joe on the mixing desk singing along to a recording of V13.

There is also nice use of Beyond the Pale.
What film is being referenced here Marky.

The screen here is probably also a double meaning for disappearing into cinematic style myth.
I was thinking a screen door but the cinematic screen might be right. Oh, comss in by the door meaning they come home and goes out by the screen could mean getting lost in a tv show or movie.

Back in early nineties I heard an in-studio interview with Mick on an Annapolis radio station WHFS in which Mick played an acoustic version of V13 and in his discussion with the DJ explained V13 referred to a tube in the UK.....
