about

From Michael Kentoff: "This song lies comfortably in a genre we often patrol: the dark intrigue pop song. I love reading about about thorny, disturbing characters in murky set-ups, so it makes sense that I'd love singing about them. The chorus of this song is paraphrased from The Manchurian Candidate when Bennett Marco (Frank Sinatra) tells Raymond Shaw (Laurence Harvey) that his days of being mind-controlled, programmed and manipulated are finished: “It's over!” Marco declares. “The links, the beautifully conditioned links are smashed. They're smashed as of now because we say so, because we say they are to be smashed. We're busting up the joint, we're tearing out all the wires.” Like many songs, this one is built on a drum part Tony played and is probably the fifth song I wrote to it before we had something we really dug. The other four will come out on my solo double-album, Variations on One Drum Part by Tony Dennison."

lyrics

It's obvious, part of the sound's
Just interference
I won't hear fanciful talk
Of a dying Cosmonaut
Now close your eyes
Concentrate on my voice, please
We can get you out
Here's the code: it's always
Overcast and grey
Then I go: always been that way
You say: by design

Tonight, it's over
We'll rip out all the wires!
They'll never know your away

It's natural:
Part of your pain's
From holding out for so long
Rather than taking a break
You've been in non-stop motion
But so is everyday
All of it fast and unfriendly
We can get you out
Here's the code: it's always
Overcast and grey
Then I go: always been that way
You say: by design
