  • akla trainspotting'de renton* karakterinin "it's shite being scottish, we're the lowest of the low, the scum of the fucking earth. the most wretched, miserable, servile, pathetic trash that was ever shat into civilization. some people hate english. i don't their just wankers, we on the other hand are colonized by wankers, can't even find a decent culture to be colonized by we're ruled by effete arseholes." şeklindeki kızgın konuşmasını da düşüren; iskoçya gibi bir yerden neden nefret ediliyor olabileceğine cevap arayan ancak bulamayan ["...maybe scotland's got nothing to do with it..."] single olarak da yayınlanmış ballboy kaydı.
  • ballboy'un 3 adet ep'sinin bir araya getirilmesi ile oluşturulmuş 2001 çıkışlı club anthems albümün 6 no'lu parçası . . . ilk dinlediğimde, "hayat hakkında hissettiklerim kulaklarımın arasından bir arıza kayıt şeridi gibi geçti," cümlesini kurmama sebep olmuştur . . . hayat hakkında söylenmiş birkaç kayda değer parçalardan . . . ne belkisi, tabii ki iskoçya ile alakası yok . . .
    sözlerini gururla sunar:

    sometimes in my life
    i take all my hopes and dreams
    all my ambitions and all my aspirations
    and i give them all up
    trade them all in
    put them all to one side

    for a springboard**
    and a pair of shorts
    and a plain white t-shirt
    and the ability to do a perfect backflip*

    i think if i could do it
    the seconds would feel like hours to me
    it would be like medicine
    staying with me during the days and during the weeks
    when i'm just pushing on
    just getting by

    and it's funny how your life is*
    it's funny how you can spend years and years
    building up layer by layer
    and then throw it all away in a second

    and i'm not all what i used to be
    and although i've more or less accepted it
    although i'm no longer trying to change it
    i still regret it
    i regret it every day

    i'm not all what i used to be

    maybe it's scotland i hate
    i know i hate so many things about it
    i hate the way punishments are the heart of everything
    i hate the way parents beat their children
    i hate the way everything always has to be someone's fault
    even though some things just happened
    some things just happened!

    i hate the way people bring up their children
    to be exactly the same as they are
    just so they can justify the way they've lived their lives

    i hate the way we expect to fail
    and then we fail
    and then we get bitter because we failed

    maybe it's scotland i hate

    maybe scotland's got nothing to do with it
    maybe all this has got nothing to do with anything

    but i know that i would give it all up
    trade it all in

    for a springboard
    and a pair of shorts
    and a plain white t-shirt
    and a perfect backflip

    a springboard
    and a pair of shorts
    and a plain white t-shirt
    and a perfect backflip

    i'd give it all up for that
    i'd give it all up for that
    i'd give it all up for that
