Parralox - Solid State

 

Solid State

Written by John von Ahlen

Verse 1
Make believe, you achieve, they observe and I receive
Signals from a foreign place, lines across a strangers face
Time to learn, time to burn, more is less or so I’ve heard
Don’t believe what strangers say unless they tell you it’s OK

Verse 2
See the girl in the room, she can watch the flower bloom
I believe in loyalty, a broken trust then penalty
Moving fast, moving slow, if you lead then I will go
Change the pace, change your face, you will never win the race

Chorus
We love the Science Fiction
This is an addiction
We love the drum machines
We synthesize the beat
We got the feeling
Oh-way-oh!

Verse 3
This is life, this is fun, kisses from my only one
In my head and in my dreams I never knew you so it seems
This is my identify, living fast and living free
Please don’t tell me what to do, I know the score, I know the rules

Verse 4
Standing still, running fast, moving to avoid the past
Pressure from the government, or leisure at my own repent
Black is black, red is blue, all I know and all I knew
Hold my hand and hold me tight, your perfect love is out of sight

Additional Info: Written on Wednesday 8th December 2010 at 0300 hours.
This song was originally a segue at the end of Ideas As Opiates, that is, at the end of IAO this song kicked in. I was toying on releasing this combined version on Recovery, but decided not because Recovery was strictly a covers album and didn't want to include any original songs on it.
New chorus written on Thursday the 19th of March, 2015.

Also appears as Solid Opiates, which is the original demo version of the track which is a medley of Solid State and Ideas As Opiates. You can hear the original (awful) chorus of Solid State in this demo version, which was re-written for the final version which appears on Aeronaut.
