Zombie Rap

Those of you with better attention spans and memories than myself will know that I often collaborate with my buddy Will McD. Here is his brand new comedy video.

Usually my emotionless, detached and clumsy acting necessitates that I am first choice for such roles as “man in background”, “guy reading book” and “tree no4”. However, this time, my gangly form was well suited to being a zombie. I may have found my true path in life!

Anyway, I hope you enjoy and “like” / “share” / “subscribe” / get involved in petty feud with several other viewers over the smallest details.

I Am Shazzamo

Lyrics to I Am Shazzamo by The Fall Of Science

There’s nothing left to say
Except the obvious, the empty
The erudite one lies and squirms

We’re searching, we’re hoping
For something to save us
There’s still nothing left

As the truth has been revealed
And the tables have been turned
This distance brings me falling to my knees again

When elegy becomes memory
Shazzamo, they’ll never know

We’re becoming sentient
Soulless machines; breathing, bleeding
Knee deep in apathy

As the truth has been revealed
And the tables have been turned
This distance brings me falling to my knees again

If it makes you smile, I would say these words to you
And if it makes you smile, I would end this life tonight

Hey emptiness, this is our salute
To every breath, to every tear
You made it real;
The beauty of loving you

You don’t have to suffer,
You don’t have to see this to the end

Ethereal

Lyrics to Ethereal by The Fall Of Science

So hold tight baby
And you’ve never been so quiet
Yours was the loudest voice at her funeral
You’ve never been this quiet

I’ve tried so many times
And failed to make you see
But I’ll be here, emptying my lungs
Until I cease to breathe

You can’t be true to me
And you’re looking at me trying
To show me sorrow
And I can’t breathe
And I cannot breathe

When every word you uttered
Stands to be a fragile lie
Then the people left behind
Will finally bare their teeth

For this life we lead through
Disbelief I will crown you the pointless fool

I guess something had to shake you to the core
Something had to squeeze a tear
From those turquoise eyes

No you can’t be true to me
And you’re looking at me trying
To show me sorrow
And I can’t breathe
And I cannot breathe

Finality In Hope

Lyrics to Finality In Hope by The Fall Of Science

Will, will you ever, ever be, anything you claimed to be

If you’ve never felt love, how do you write about it?
If you’ve never been there, how can you tell the story?
I’ve crossed the water, I’ve sailed the ocean
I have to believe we are enduring

When you look into my eyes and see they are corroding,
I’m dying inside through this thought of confusion.

These words are so damn solid
Stand by your actions, go raise your armies
And now I see it clear, now I hold so dear
Only friends and brothers, for they are eternal

When you look into my eyes and see they are corroding,
I’m dying inside through this thought of confusion.
When you look into my heart and see that it’s still breaking
I’m dying inside through this thought of confusion.

You’ve really taken the best of my life, you’ve really taken the best of my life
You can’t ever seem to bring me down 
You’ve really taken the best of my life, you’ve really taken the best of my life
You can’t ever seem to bring me down.

There’s finality in hope, if you cling on to it
But I won’t
There’s beauty in love, if you can take it
But I don’t

You’ve really taken the best of my life, you’ve really taken the best of my life
You can’t ever seem to bring me down 
You’ve really taken the best of my life, you’ve really taken the best of my life
You can’t ever seem to bring me down.

If you need faith to find meaning in life then I pity, I pity you

You’ve really taken the best of my life, you’ve really taken the best of my life
You can’t ever seem to bring me down.

Platinum

Lyrics to Platinum, performed twice live by The Fall Of Science but not recorded

Your capricious schemes shall fail

You’re pushing mediocrity with a lust I’ve never seen
I know I might be wrong but I’ll never be one

To be, a captive to trends
Or know the fascination in another’s moves

I know it’s never looked so good
To be ignorant and capitalist

And if I’ve learnt something in all my years
It’s that passion is worth its weight in platinum

Transparency is everything to me
I’m crystal clear and you can see my love

My blood, my heart
My metaphors are better for it

I know it’s never looked so good
To be ignorant and capitalist

And sitting here I remember when you told me,
In so many words, it’s imperative to show what you stand for

The roads we travel down, these journeys are so cold,
Without a friend to share the weight
Without a friend to bear the load

The Pledge and The Turn

Lyrics to The Pledge and The Turn by The Fall Of Science

Promise me
Sitting here, I remember
Assure me
Where I was when you told me
That this trust
In so many words it’s imperative
Was not misplaced
To show what you stand for

As clarity cuts through cecity
Integrity will end this nightmare

Promise me
Sitting here, I remember
Assure me
Where I was when you told me
That this trust
In so many words it’s imperative
Was not misplaced
To show what you stand for

I’ll hold this up as evidence
That every word you ever said
Was meaningless though eloquent
Promise

I’m not one for conflict or dramatic stands
I guess that’s why this internecine drags inexorably on
But you could not repent for my soul
But it’s never you with the white flags
Or fresh made bouquets

I’ll hold this up as evidence
That every word you ever said
Was meaningless though eloquent

Take a look inside your self and promise me

When loyalty is just an empty word
That’s when your weight is not your worth

Poets and Visionaries

Lyrics to Poets and Visionaries by The Fall Of Science

Every century is defined by great men
But who do we have
To carry the torch of the time of our lives

I doubt you will ever see with a dose of clarity
Do you not hunger for something more demanding to pull you through
A brave new world, subsides in stagnant seas
For this I will never be happy with this life

And I promise you, for all your gold
They won’t know you in ten years time

So go and seize the day and hold it close
And never let it go because time is both
Your lover and your enemy
The meek shall inherit the earth but I can’t wait til then

All our poets died long ago and our visionaries are blind
To a culture in decline and choking for breath
We are choking for breath
Your fame doesn’t mean a thing if you do nothing to enhance the story of mankind

For this I will never be happy with a little life
Now you’ve taken my soul and turned it to dust
For this I will never be happy with a little life
Now you’ve taken my soul and turned it to dust

A brave new world
