Parralox - Rocket Science


Rocket Science

Written by John von Ahlen

Verse 1
A challenge is made, I can feel the pressure
I cannot change my nature, I prefer leisure
I'm reading a book, out of sheer defiance
The message is clear, it's not Rocket Science

Tonight's the night
Do you feel love?
We get it right
Do you feel love?
You know that I can't wait until we meet again
The time is right
Do you feel love?

Verse 2
I'm out of time, all the work while crying
What would you say if you knew I was lying?
I said I was ready but I know I'm not
I just turn on the TV, though I probably should not

I'm gonna get ya, you know I'm gonna get ya x6
You know that I can't wait until we meet again
I'm gonna get ya, you know I'm gonna get ya x2

Song completed at 0358 hours on Thursday the 19th of November 2015.
"All The Work While Crying" is a favourite motif of Sharyn and I, and unfortunately I seem to follow this more than I probably should.
This was written and produced in just under 5 hours (from nothing but song title to finished product), just before the deadline I had of sending the WAV files to our German Label for inclusion on Holiday '15.
Shhh don't tell Ingo, I'm sure he would have had a heart attack ;)

I was thinking about what it would have been like to be at Musicland Studios when Phil Oakey was with Giorgio Moroder recording their album
And what it must have been like for Martin Rushent working on the Dare album with The Human League.

I guess I was trying to channel some of the sound and sentiment.

Hope you enjoy it!

P.S. Ken Evans (Tycho Brahe) I hope you will get a kick out of this!
