Story behind the song
Track was written as part of AMUC's 2016 RPM Challenge album submission. The rest of the album [Polychromatic Paramnesia] can be found here : http://alonetone.com/amuc/playlists/polychromatic-paramnesia The entire album can be considered 'podsafe' -- some of the instrumental tracks would probably be good for podcast background music.
Lyrics
I can’t help believing that this course she can’t stop weaving a part of her deceiving herself that this is right She focuses fate her intentions transferred to ticker-tape through ink as black as night all the magic was lost to the measurement retracing lines to find the days that were better spent Complex enchantments all now saved to preset Calculated, downsized, compromised I regret and the incantations put down in rows & columns on a spreadsheet open wide spreadsheet open wide and by all indications God’s tied up in litigation and He isn’t on your side He isn’t on your side The last alarm it sounds a toll As the treads they slowly roll when science and magic collide As the expressions parse through the spellchecker She edits her hexes There’s no room for an error And Inhibitions Once designed to protect her Are shredded by the tide She’s taken for a ride And now the piper wants his toll As the waves they crash and roll when science and magic collide I can’t help believing that this course she can’t stop weaving a part of her deceiving herself that this is right stars stop flickering it feels the heavens are bickering and day goes black as night
