Singing Of The Bonesaws – Future Of The Left Lyrics

The music industry is lying to you

It is telling you that you are excited

And you are excited

And you are excited

Or rather you have confused excitement with the fear of missing out

Which is understandable as these two feeling are very closely related

Focusing as they do, on the heart and the groin and ending in a bloody mess, pregnancy tests and too little sleep

A survey says that shouting amities in a regional accent is valuable to culture

Look at Eastenders, Soccer AM or the Queens speech

A survey says pedafiles run the BBC but look at the alternatives

Drowning men clutching at straws through their bellend helden, sad women dreaming of being owned by them, their children eventual despoilers of the high-streets clad head to toe in menstrual blood.

Screaming sexual insults into bedroom mirrors with the sad belief it will empower them

And it will empower them

And it will empower them

At least that’s what it says on my cereal packet

That’s what it says on my receipt from the apple store

Good lord

I cannot identify the bloodied bodies of my loved ones

They were killed whilst watching a new television show on the MTV network

One were Kim Kardashian is chased through woodland by a giant bear wearing a mask which carries the visage of recently deceased film director Michal Winner

The bear has apparently not qualified for a work placed pension and is  angry with Daniel Day Lewis for what he perceives as the relative lack of action in their will be blood

Which he otherwise enjoyed but found a little precious for its tastes

Anyway after twenty minuets of panic running around intercut with interviews with friends and other celebrities, the production team behind the show all simultaneously come to the same horrifying conclusion

Their waste of the precious gift of life which has been given to them by science, they start attacking themselves with the nearest available objects, braking off camera tripods to ram  them bloodily into each other’s eyes

Climbing up the highest branches of trees to fall face down on to the pulsing earth, the whole time shrieking and screaming with the sudden primal vigour of lost souls who have forgotten language and seem intent on shouting their black hearts from their grey, semi erect chests

Quite

They face, the pigs

They face the pigs they were

They face, the pigs

They face the pigs they were

Anyway, my family members otherwise enjoying a restful Sunday afternoon spent basking in the Christian lie of a benevolent and loving God, witness this horror through the prism of their television set, concentrating hard on the psychic bloodied anguish which has utterly enveloped the unlikely wooden scene, is transmitted directly into the heart of our living room

And they bask from scream and into their eyes and their hearts and their minds and their tits and their bits

And bask from scream and into their eyes and their hearts and their minds and their tits and their bits

And bask from scream and into their eyes and their hearts and their minds and their tits and their bits

And bask from scream and into their eyes and their hearts and their minds and their tits and their bits

And bask from scream and into their eyes and their hearts and their minds and their tits and their bits

they bask from scream and into their eyes and their hearts and their minds and their tits and their bits

Thoughts echo, from off foreheads

Dan Le Sac vs Scroobius Pip – Repent Replenish Repeat

Make sure your in a secure, safe place. Isolate yourself and move away from any distractions. Get comfy, brace and listen to Repent Replenish Repeat.

Scroobius Pip is an artist who’s lyrical elegance and intelligence draws you to listen carefully. His intensity and topic sensitivity is what holds your attention unfalteringly.

Dan Le Sac is a producer and DJ who exaggerates the lyrical intensity with beats that don’t just accompany Pip’s words but submerges them in emotion.

Repent Replenish Repeat is the latest album by this unique somewhat un-categorizable duo. This album has been much anticipated by the big, ever growing fan base that follows the band. The witty way pip spits meaningful messages has found him with many loyal followers. This album comes two years after the spoken word artists second solo album Distraction Pieces which climbed as high as 8th on the ITunes chart. Distraction pieces had more of a rock based soundtrack and a faster tempo then the previous two Dan le Sac vs Scroobius Pip albums. This gave Pip a different dimension but less focus, the songs were wilder, some tracks sound like a call to arms then a well worded thought or message. With Repent Replenish Repeat, Dan Le Sac keeps that tempo and intensity from Distraction Pieces while framing the lyrics in emotion.

DAN VS SCROOB im

This intensity is the thing that separates this album from previous Le Sac – Pip projects. There are no light hearted tracks to escape the dark themes that flow throughout the album. The duos second release The Logic Of Chance had Cauliflower, Last Train Home and The Beat, Angles had Thou Shalt Always Kill and Fixed.  Repent Replenish Repeat lacks this rest in what are full on, heavy records. The effect this has is the album seems much more serious, it’s a lot to take in and there is no escaping it.

RRR still has the chemistry to draw fans back from the bands past adventures. Opening track and first single Stunner bangs the drum and says we are here, the same way The Beat That My Heart Skipped did in Angles. Scroobius Pip’s lyrics stretch from questioning the state of modern rap music to daughters in mental hospitals. The lyrical content of the album peaks on the track Terminal which tells you the tale of a terminally ill women spending her last night on a drug fuelled high with a man she had only met that morning. Scroobius pip tells that story in first person through that mans eyes. “I’d met her that morning in the waiting room at 7AM, and 16 beautiful hours later, I’d never see her again.” This epitomizes just how intense this album is, an intensity which accumulates in the last track You Will See me. You will see me shouts an anger we have all felt, an anger which leaves us speechless but what Pip has put into destructive words.

Dan Le Sac vs Scroobius Pip have been on their own pedestal in British music since their first album Angles in 2008. Since then they have just grown in popularity and they are only going to get bigger. The band is unique and exciting but most importantly, they are good for music.
