SocietyFringePodcast's podcast

Through this podcast SFP is creating an extended universe through the use of guitar based pop songs. The tale is both episodic and serial. As of the COVID lock down the SFPeeniverse consisted of 7 Broadway style musicals. This is ambitious stuff. The conceit is that an '84 Chevy El Camino acts as a TARDIS catalyst connecting the characters to unlimited story telling opportunities.

All in my mind everyone's blind

Silence is golden in an everyday bind

All in my head glad I'm not dead

Bitterness bubbles up the words that she said

Morals and time physical crime

Where is it I can't see it where is the line?

All in my brain feed me some sane

I'll lick it up and then I'll shoot my own pain

Feed me some sane inject my brain

The golden nectar of a world without pain

Feed me some sane misery reigns

A blackness sucks my ankles laughing and slain

The mushroom cloud is laughing meanest of all

A nervous breakdown squirting right out my balls

The seed is spitting it means nothing at all

I'm at Edge City and I'm starting to crawl yeah

The ashen necklace of a painted face weeps

Subconsciously I want to drown in the streets

Depression's going to take the edge off of me

I'm peaking now but wait 'til quarter to three

     I'm all fucked up and I don't care

     Fatal nihilistic glares

     I want to scream but I don't dare

     Come on, Edge City, take me there yeah

I want to masticate a marginal wound

Explosion sun up a material moon

Suicide vibes from everyone in the room

I'm the only fucking guy in the room

     I fucked the wellspring of a ghost

     I spurned the Emperor's pledge to toast

     I'm flying off the glistening coast

     The sand is glass while billions roast

The spores of death are fleeting ever the just

I'm at Edge City and I'm starting to rust

The melting visage of the Rebel King's bust

The melting mirrors tend to complicate us yeah

Gone for good is what I'm getting

Death to me's a new direction

But I want to make myself just suffer

'Cause shit is all there is

Wishing crazy to me through the slumber

Slouching closely to restricted thunder

Crashed through motionless it becomes laughter

So crank it up you fucking whores

Let's talk about it

The seascape melts into a laughing flower

Slathered by gynecologic power

Flowing gushing forth like arms of plunder

And tripping balls just like the savior

Crank it up you fucking whores

Life is useless so is love

Blood is nothing done is done

Take me backwards over there

Once a lifetime never fair NO

Will it ever end Iwish it could

Where's they sting like it should

Life done broke me all fucked up

Nothing's happening nothing's up

Didn't ask to be here so

Let's drop the curtain it's time to go see it said

See where you're at

How do you like that

If I were Shakespeare I'd write a song

Of romantic longings and soliloquies sung

Death and carnage would not despair

The choices made would cloud the air

But I ain't Shakespeare I ain't a man

I've taken it all I've bitten the hand

I've stared at the abstract claiming it's truth

I punctured the priest in the confessional booth

Didn't care more yesterday How can it seem to be that way when you're dead

So where you at How do you like that

Exploding erupting orgasmic and more

See through the ceiling and punch through the floor

Huff like a big bad wolf and kick down that door

Blue like horizons on the oceanless shores

Come on

Blue is the color inevitably

The blues is the core and the Earth is the sea

Unkind unkempt ungainly

Blue is the color the masses see

Blue like the glass hewn desert

Blue like the drugs of comfort

Blue like the song of the used and oppressed

Blue like the mood of the sad and depressed

Apocalypse Tomorrow

Do you have an armageddon I can borrow

The waters rise and suffocate

The air hangs burning concentrate

Do you have an armageddon I can borrow

Apocalypse tomorrow

Come On!

Silent sound means the world to me

Falling down all around me

I wonder should I smash that door

And fly away from my hideaways

Violent sound seems to make me be

Triumph around gave the rest to me

I wonder should I smash that door

And fly away from my hideaways

Hideaways don't mean shit to me

Tidalwaves bring out the best in me

I wonder should I smash that door

And fly away from my hideaways

In the night she stays

They tell you to walk before you run

But me I want to fly

Shake off that misanthropy

And try and touch the sky

A sky that's cold as winter icicles in May

A rage that never really goes away

Spend all your spare time looking back

'Cause memories never fade

Everything I've seen just seems

To be a grand charade

Of faceless voices claiming to be the status quo

But never let them show you where to go

They tell you to think before you leap

Lives they just fall down

All these wasted people

They just burrow in the ground

That's hard as screaming arctic glaciers late in June

Just another word for a cocoon

And so I sit back and think a while

Wondering what it's for

This grand scheme that builds some dreams

And thrashes others on the floor

That's crowded by a billion entities and some

Who never even heard the starting gun

Break your back break your face

Fall asleep miss the race

Scared to be anything

Scaredy scared of everything


People suck people lie

Just complain all the time

Whine all day fall in line

Just fit in it's lemming time

So fuck the herd

Fuck 'em

Cattle sheep chew your cud

Stupid and dumb as mud

You don't care if it's true

Or a lie so fuck you

And fuck the herd

Fuck 'em

I will work for food

Often misconstrued

Please don't think me rude

Baseless, strained or crude

Inside out they come

I'm the chosen one

Sleep with Jesus' son

Be the lonely one

I will do anything

I'm the homeless one

Terrorized for fun

I'm the chosen one

Lest we come undone

I will do anything

Let me have some food

Please give me some food

Can I have some food

May I have some food
