6. Disposable

Well I promised a quasi-21st-century song. The production line automated feel I was going for also conveniently allowed me to be super lazy in the music, just looping a couple of very very very repetitive riffs. For art, yes. Also allowed me to cover up my iffy vocals with robot effects. I don’t think this style is my jam, but it’s fun to try new things.

This is straying from Pat Pattison’s blueprint – you’ll notice it doesn’t have any real story or development, unlike the first couple of songs. But I’ve noticed not all songs follow the story format, which really is more suited to certain genres such as country or folk.

Disposable

Disposable cars, disposable homes
Disposable scars, disposable bones
Throwaway clothes, throwaway shoes
Throwaway globe, throwaway, throwaway truth

Need it fast, it won’t last
What’s it for, fling it, fling it on the floor
Gimme more more more
Gimme gimme more

Disposable lies, disposable songs
Disposable rights, disposable wrongs
Throwaway friends, throwaway dates
Throwaway sense, throwaway, throwaway face

Need it fast, it won’t last
What’s it for, fling it, fling it on the floor
Gimme more more more
Gimme gimme more

Planned obsolescence, all is evanescent
What is lasting when all is new?
What endures, what is true?

Disposable love on production lines
Disposable gloves, disposable minds
Expendable cash, expendable whims
Expendable trash, expendable sins

Need it fast, it won’t last
What’s it for, fling it, fling it on the floor
Gimme more more more
Gimme gimme more

Disposable style, disposable rot
Disposable smile, disposable god
Expendable rage, expendable dreams
In this instant age, expendable screams

Need it fast, it won’t last
What’s it for, fling it, fling it on the floor
Gimme more more more
Gimme gimme more

  1. I like the way the mechanized sound of the track and vocals itself heightens the point of the lyrics and this ‘disposable’ world we manufacture for ourselves. Fun!
