Parralox - The Future

The Future.

Written by John von Ahlen and DJ Jeffo Bang.


Verse 1
Staring through windows, crumpled up cellophane
Thunderclap car crash, and it’s starting to rain
Crepsucular skyline, Iridescent horizon
Fluorescence in motion, like a neon lit diamond

Pre Chorus
Tell me do you feel like trying something new?
Rearrange the timeline, only if you don’t mind

Chorus
The future arrived (the future arrived)
Where were you (where were you)
The future is gone (the future is gone)
So what’s new (so what’s new)
If you find something new, don’t deny what you can do
The future’s bright, I can see the whitest light, our destiny

Verse 2
With polarized eyeballs, the palest of celadon
When fractals are decayed, then beauty will be gone
Liquid crystal parallellograms, kaleidoscopic retina
A palimpsest of holograms, exploding into nebula

Repeat Pre Chorus
Repeat Chorus

Verse 3
Somebody put naphthalene, into the Ice Machine
Subatomic particles, some were pink and others green
Organic crystallography, disturbing the complexity
Synthetic iconography, a collapsing of integrity

Repeat Chorus

End Chorus
The future arrived (right on time)
Where were you (out of sight)
The future is gone (I don’t mind)
So what’s new (we say goodnight)
If you find, something new
Don’t deny, what you can do
The future’s bright, I can see
The whitest light, our destiny

UNUSED LYRICS
Verse 1 (Pretty Pretty?)
We stared though windows of crumpled cellophane,
We heard a thunderclap car crash and it started to rain.
A crepuscular sky that looks so iridescent
And all neon lights twinkle on their fluorescence

He had polarized eyes of pale celadon.
But when the fractals decayed all his beauty was gone.
The quantum circuits broke into arrythmic waves,
Synthetic vacuums were filled and now no one behaves.

Someone put naphthalene into the ice machine.
Subatomic particles, some were pink and others green.
Liquid crystal parallelograms, a kaleidoscopic retina,
A palimpsest of holograms, an intergalactic nebula.

Verse 2 (Machine's Breaking Down)
His/Your/With/The/Its polarized eyeballs, the palest of celadon
But when the fractals are decayed, all your/the beauty will/may/could be gone
Liquid crystal parallellograms, kaleidoscopic retina
A palimpsest of holograms, exploding into nebula

Verse 3 (Chaos Ensues)
Somebody put (*) naphthalene, into the (terrible) ice machine
Subatomic particles, some were pink and others green
Organic crystallography, (is) disturbing the complexity
Synthetic iconography, with a collapsing of integrity (the/a collapse of your/the integrity)
