Story behind the song
Before The White EP was even launched, A Million Little Fingers Inside Of You had formed a shape. I knew what I wanted, I knew how to get it, and the whole piece fell into place quickly and easily, growing up as the perfect sinner, ushering in this new era of The Black EP. Inspiration for this song is hard to pinpoint accurately. All I knew is that I envisioned the verses to be one constant snare assault, and I did briefly think of Death Grips’ System Blower when I undertook that route. The chorus and first bridge, however, were a different thing altogether, as I had written those bits when I was around 22 years old or so, intending them to be used for a soft acoustic composition. The melody and chords always stuck with me, and so I was adamant they would get reused at some point in my future. That future was now. As for the outro-bridge, I intentionally put it together directly after listening to Dub Side Of The Moon by Easy Star All-Stars, aiming to capture that sound in some way. I nearly got it too. The lyrics are important for many reasons, as not only do they stick tightly to the main story, but also introduce the crucial central character of Lizzie, our local superhero robot. Not to mention that the whole thing is overstuffed with so many meme references, that only a true internet junkie will find it lols. Add this with a video which features much superior drawings than those that came before, and you’re left with a strong song which is of a standard I can feel very proud of. And if nothing else, this may be the first track on the planet to use the Amen Break and the Wilhelm Scream at the same time, which deserves some sort of a medal, I think.
Lyrics
VERSE 1 New Scene: Lizzie Machine, pretty Meme queen supreme Out-boxed Boxxy Knows every motherf*** ing man on 4chan Has a billion gigs of ram She’s the female Form of Gmail Nyan cat’s her cat No epic fails like Jessi Slaughter’s Father Caught her on the internet Died of a heartattack I guess he dun goofed And consequences will never be the same CHORUS mmmmm To hear the voice of treason This season mmmmm It tastes so good, so good I’m high, and passed the point of reason mmmmm I’m dying, it feels so good VERSE 2 Back to Lizzie’s Security’s Insanity Wolf And so she Got a babysitter for Pedobear She read it on the front page of Reddit And now she screams Behind windscreens Driving in these Pink Limousines Like a superhero, heard LegoTrip fall And you cannot explain that therefore aliens And all your base are belong to us BRIDGE 1 And Jonbenet Ramsey and Mary Bell Standing Over a Wishing Well Isn’t it funny how blurry things go over fire? And isn’t funny how long human skin takes to burn? CHORUS mmmmm To hear the voice of treason This season mmmmm It tastes so good, so good I’m high, and points the past of reason mmmmm I’m dying, it feels so good So good BRIDGE 2 I be sittin’ pretty when I last look at me watch And to me surprise I be rising, realising I’m in somebody’s arms Da pressure poppin’ in me ears, da loud hum of machinery Artillery, and scenery turn secret shades of green And in dat second and only in dat second I forgot About da girl, da word, da monster, and da whole goddamn world And so we twirled and irie'd down into the sun Who opened up his mouth and showed his gums and let us in And then I was inside my bed again, like nothing ever happened, dreaming of... And then I was inside my bed again, like nothing ever happened, dreaming of... And then I was inside my bed again, like nothing ever happened, dreaming of... And then I was inside my bed again, like nothing ever happened, dreaming of... And then I was inside my bed again, like nothing ever happened, dreaming of...
