Silent Alarm track listing

"Like Eating Glass" is a song by Bloc Party from their debut album Silent Alarm. It is the first track on the album. The song is one of their most popular amongst fans. The lyrics, as is typical of the band's early work, are poetic and ambiguous, and deal with feelings of being "completely disoriented" in failing relationships.[1] A fan-made music video for the song was uploaded to YouTube and received over 500,000 views. The Black Strobe remix was released as a split single with The Futureheads by Oxfam. The song was also featured on the playlist of Tony Hawk's American Wasteland.[2]
