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.

Midlife crisis in prescription pills but the buffer never came

Fallen swords flown free form faster but they all just sound the same

It's only just a game

Got no witness call our misdeeds

Over by the dawn

Catch a glimpse of something better

Blink and then it's gone

Let the meaning of the words

Get scrambled by the dregs

Give a sense of meaningless

An arm and two new legs

It's only just a game.

I went before the tribune and I stammered my defense

Got a playful greeting said the sentence recompense

Kiss me twice but fool me never where'd she put the key

Get them handcuffs melt 'em down and then 

Just give them back to me

It's only just a game

It's more than just a game

At reality

Seen you in your glory will you sell me

For a story

You got a b-line to my soul

Gift me with your loving or

Thrift me from above when

I got another spot in my soul

Welcome to my birthday party but it hasn't started

Until you're gone

Violence the pot is brimming

We're all just swimming in it'ssong

Why can't you see that this ain't no party


I wonder if my heart is showing

And if you're knowing who I am

I wonder because I can feel you

But not see through you if I can

My questions ain't small

War it kills us all

I just want to know what's right that's all

That's all


People they fill me with questions

The world is spinning under me

Catch it a thought is drifting

I'm sitting sifting come float with me

Listen to me and join my party

So let's get started

Well I feel alright maybe a bit uptight

 I'm on a transport boat it's like a new remote

Got a floating thumb like a number one

Half another one loaded half my gun

On a factory ship they stole a rather zip

Get me out of there where the air to care

Less of everything bring the sing ring thing

At the quarter mark played without the stark

Leave the war behind in effort sublime

Of a human skull filled with less than null

Here the yells and coughs

Feeding at the trough

Like an eagle's wings sing the ring thing bring

It to newfound lathes baths and crass crash labs

Feed me nitrogen pennies current slim

From a battle zone smelling like ozone

Peace will set me free if I want to be


Sing the joys of life na na na na na na

Uplift me uplift me tra la la

Does anything really ever happen

How 'bout them migrants at the door

You got the money for the answer

You got the money for the floor


When I looked around was Atlantis bound

Got PTSD got that shit for free

It's a genesis it's a catharsis

It's a love ornate let's copulate

I got a song for you

It's heaving like a clue

I got to radiate

And build my love from hate


I broke the atom bomb KABOOM

I felt it I felt it give me room

I heard the drums a-beating goddamn

I heard the march retreating, man


Like the towers fall Dawn City enthralled

It's an edifice it's an urban myth

She's the Atom Bomb she's the right aplomb

Boil and salt to taste then repatriate


I got a song for you

It's heaving like a clue

I got to radiate

And build my love from hate

Within the City's gates

I don't ingratiate

Or have a trust in fate

You some punk motherfuckers while you're sitting in your high chairs

In your seats that be controlling the world

You don't care about the people build your liquor stores and steeples

Hold the roughest of the roughest of the pearls

The people act as lemmings all distracted and the same is true

For all this fucking lying crying blues

Distract us from our misery lie to us to keep us busy

While you tell us what our thoughts are and our views

Manipulated prayed for fellated

The dream is a lie and I'm craving a meltdown

Lead like a herd mindless retro absurd

And the scheme is a pyramid oligarchs abound

The rich elite lie to you and they motherfucking use you

If you're left well then they make you hate the right

And the other way too, punks, it's fucking junk they use the trunks

And pack their lies up so they seem like truth and light

They keep us all distracted while their riches get impacted

By the oligarchal lurching huge machine

They twist up information hide the overall stagnation

And they make you wonder what it all can mean

Sep 25, 2017


I didn't know that the show would not go back to you

I didn't know that the lies that were told would come true

I didn't think or even care if it all went down in rust

I didn't mind if it did but I guess it wasn't just

The consequence was begging

For a thing that smelled like true

And the operator called up

And the financing fell through

At least we got it demoed and my wife was sick and everybody cried

 Got laid off a couple times but kept on writing, man, because that's what you do

Every path of atmospheric musings keeps me coming back to you

The plot holes got dismembered

I lost my mind a bit

We put it on the podcast

Because we worked out the apocalypse

Spare you all the details

Just trying to write some songs

I'd like to keep on adding

It just takes so goddamned long

Let it rust

I'm in the Arctic War and the Antarctic War

The ice is pink and black the sky is brown and grey

It's arbitrary, man, who you fight for today

It's geographic, man, for that they make you pay

For that they make you pay

This murder's never stopped since hands picked up a rock

It's cities and it's dust it's all downhill from here

We blew it when we tried to kick it into gear

Philosophy is dead on that we all are clear

On that we all are clear


The rumblings wake me up with blazing guns and then

The sky it opens up and Dawn she blazes fire

Through Elvis Presley's face the Czar and Khan retire

The mood it lightens up and Dawn douses the fire

So Dawn she saved the world

Or maybe just my brain

Or maybe all of us

Or maybe just the pain

Sep 11, 2017


There ain't no good or evil here

Grace has just up and disappeared

Everything's too fucking loud

Collectively we're a mushroom cloud

The ground beneath me creeks and moans

The sky above is filled with drones

The singularity is worthless

This brutality is just senseless

The maelstrom sucks dry every lung

It doubles down on flares of sun

The war city's a battleship

Plastics forged from hearts and hips

The rich sit back and place their bets

This isn't armageddon yet

The selfish wants of greed protrudes

The moneymaking then ensues

As long as this machine does hum

Cannibals, daughters and sons

It chews them up and spits them out

Humanity ain't got no clout

The writers write of fogs of war

The fighters fight the scorers score

Language warps primordial thought

Human life is sold and bought

Ain't no good and evil here

Ain't no good or evil here
