about

Miracles of Modern Science New York

Miracles of Modern Science are a string section in mutiny: guitars overboard! The Brooklyn, NY band squeezes together classical textures, disco kinetics, and explosive dynamics you might file under “post-rock” if their instruments weren’t decidedly pre-rock. ... more

Track Name: Ahem
I was sleeping in a fall
A fool boy humming into a wall
I was stalling, I was stalling, but for what I can't recall

I was seeing through your eyes
But all my objects seemed twice the size
I was counting, I was counting, but its hard to count the sky

I was trying to read your thoughts
But soon I found that my head was lost
I was moving, I was moving, I was moving, moving on
Track Name: Dear Pressure
Hey friend, I haven't seen you much
It's my fault, I've been so out of touch
New club? No, you go on ahead
Old blood, I'll dance when I am dead

When I'm dead
I'll dance when I'm dead

That was a killer show
Makes sense to take it on the road
Not me! I can't afford the risk
You tour, I'm on the mailing list

Go ahead
I'll tour when I'm dead

I don't know what else to say
I don't know what else to say
Maybe I'll get to it someday

I see myself at 94
Spare dreams stuck on life support
No wait, if that's what lies ahead
I'll change or put it off and dream when I'm dead

I don't know what else to say
End all my thoughts the same way:
“Maybe I'll get to it someday”

I've been so drunk on safety
I think I'm going crazy
Don't want my ghost to hate me
Time's running
Track Name: Don't You See?
Through a narrow ravine, flattened ferns under feet
Pull a thorn from my knee wading into the creek
I can bleed

Oh, and I know where I belong
Oh, I could never leave you long

Shaken out of my daze by the shrieks of machines
I am weak
A collision of grays, nothing brown, nothing blue, no more green
I can't breathe

NYC, I was in you all along
Don't you see I could never call you home?
Track Name: The Singularity
By the time that we all go deaf, I know that we'll find a cure for it, yeah

People say that we'll die someday, but we just don't believe it
Long before we are old and gray, we'll find a way to beat it
Fight against physical decay, keep our bodies breathing
By the next quarter century we won't even need them

So shoot the supplements into our veins so we can reprogram our genes
And let the nanobots swim through our brains to keep our neurons sharp and clean
There's not a problem that we cannot solve with our technology
Just as long as we can stay alive until the singularity

Maybe you think we're mental
But if you doubt anything we say, check out our man's credentials
Our evolution is underway, and it's exponential
There's no reason to be afraid

We'll shoot the supplements into our veins so we can reprogram our genes
And let the nanobots swim through our brains to keep our neurons sharp and clean
And we will all transcend biology and merge with our machines
Just as long as we can stay alive until the singularity

So play it loud, turn up the kick
Cause by the time that we lose our hearing, we'll have a fix for it
So play it loud, crank it up to ten
Cause by the time that our ears are broken, we'll have no use for them
