I think London is about a guy trying to get back to together with his girlfriend after she has cheated on him. "I want to get my hands on him" pretty much says it all. It is also about how the girl is just fucking with him and leading him to think that they will get back together if he comes to London

Are any 3eb members FRIENDS fans?!? coz the events and situations in this song simply bears an uncanny resemblance to the events that happened in Ross' (David Schwimmer) life in season 4 of friends...y'know? with that english girl, Emily? Basically, the song mainly focuses on having to do things just to make someone you THINK you love, love you back. it's a bitter song really, especially the part when he goes, "I dont wanna go to London, coz you're not there even when i see you...somewhere else in London." it just clearly shows that the guy is being played by this bitchy girl.

London

Through the satellites,
I fight with you,
That local brew is spillin',
I know just how you spend your time.
I want to get my hands on him,
Somebody's party in a London flat,
You're where it's at
And I know,
You want to see me loose my mind,
I'm tired of chasing after you
The residue is jealous,
See me on the dark side of your mind,
I want to get my hands on him,
To a club that's pounding in the London rain,
The world could end
We wouldn't hear it.
I know just what's on your mind,
I see the way your face has changed,
We're no good for each other,
You tricked me into coming here,
So let go,
l don't want to go to London,
I told you I don't care,
I don't want to go to London,
To live there,
I don't want to go to London,
All your friends afflicted,
I don't want to go to London.
She's addicted.
I saw you with him,
I know where you've been,
That nose is broken wide open,
Your way has got me out of line.
I want to get my hands on him.
You're so sick
Just to make me prove,
It takes a fight to move you,
I know just what's on your mind.
It's been this way a thousand years,
We torture each other.
So why the hell did you call me here,
And you know,
l don't want to go to London,
I told you I don't care,
I don't want to go to London,
To live there,
I don't want to go to London,
All your friends afflicted,
I don't want to go to London.
She's addicted.
l don't want to go to London,
I told you I don't care,
I don't want to go to London,
'Cause you're not there.
Even when I see you,
You're somewhere else in London.
