Information

The matrix message is a reference to Queenie's Castle - a UK sitcom with Diana Dors.
During the Your Arsenal Twitter Listening Party (April 26, 2020), Alain Whyte stated:

Track two, Glamorous Glue!
Morrissey asked for a tune similar to Bowie's Jean Genie. No small task!
So, morphed 3 songs to come up with this one... Shoplifters/Jean Genie and some 70's rock song that had a sliding guitar that inspired the intro/outro."

Lyrics

First day with the jar you find
Everyone lies
First day with the jar you find
Everyone lies, nobody minds
Everyone lies

Where is the man you respect?
And where is the woman you love?
Where's the woman you love?

Third week with the jar you find
Everything dies
We won't vote Conservative
Because we never have
Everyone lies, everyone lies

Where is the man you respect?
And where is the woman you love?
Where's the woman you love?

Everything of worth on Earth
Is there to share

I used to dream and I used to vow
I wouldn't dream of it now
We look to Los Angeles
For the language we use
 
London is dead, London is dead
London is dead, London is dead
London is dead, London is dead
I'm too much in love
I'm too much in love

I know I'll go empty hand from the land
