Infa-Red single cover

"Infra-Red" is the third single from Placebo's fifth studio album, Meds, and was released on 19 June 2006. The song peaked #42 in the UK, #35 on the U.S. Modern Rock Tracks chart, and #91 in Germany.

The words "beggar's banquet", featured in its lyrics, references the Rolling Stones' album of the same name.

A live version of the song is available on the Live at La Cigale download-only EP.

The music video features politicians seemingly conspiring against the public; meanwhile, a group of ants interfere with their files. A character (apparently a president or similar leader) gives a speech with the help of a computerised prompter, but the ants' interference causes the prompter to say "I lied to you. We are the enemy", which the president reads.

LyricsEdit

One last thing before I
Shuffle off the planet,
I will be the one to make you crawl,
So I came down to wish you
An unhappy birthday,
Someone call the ambulance,
There's gonna be an accident

I'm coming up on infrared,
There is no running that can hide you,
'Cause I can see in the dark,
I'm coming up on infrared,
Forget your running,
I will find you.

One more thing before we start the final face-off,
I will be the one to watch you fall,
So I came down to crash and burn
Your beggar's banquet,
Someone call the ambulance,
There's gonna be an accident.

I'm coming up on infrared,
There is no running that can hide you,
'Cause I can see in the dark,
I'm coming up on infrared,
Forget your running,
I will find you.

Someone call the ambulance,
There's gonna be an accident.

I'm coming up on infrared,
There is no running that can hide you,
'Cause I can see in the dark,
I'm coming up on infrared,
Forget your running,
I will find you,
'Cause I can see in the dark,
I'm coming up on infrared,
There is no running that can hide you,
'Cause I can see in the dark,
I'm coming up on infrared,
Forget your running,
I will find you.

I'll find you
I'll find you
