Science Fiction Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Religious iconography giving you the creeps?
I feel rougher than a disco lizard tongue along your cheek
The rise of the machines
I must admit you gave me something momentarily
In which I could believe
But the hand of harsh reality's un-gloved
And it's on its way back in to scoop you up
But not on my watch
Verse 2
I won't stay with you, my love
The way some science fiction does
Verse 3
Reflections in the silver screen of strange societies
Swamp monster with a hard on for connectivity
The ascension of the cream
Mass panic on a not too distant future colony
Quantitative easing
I want to make a simple point about peace and love
But in a sexy way where it's not obvious
Verse 4
Highlight dangers and send out hidden messages
The way some science fiction does
The way some science fiction does
Verse 5
I've got the world on a wire
In my little mirror mirror on the wall
In the pocket of my raincoat
Verse 6
So I tried to write a song to make you blush
But I've a feeling that the whole thing
May well just end up too clever for its own good
The way some science fiction does
