The Placebo Effect

from Almost Paradigm by Sons Of Nothing



the sky has fallen, the earth is cracked
you can still see the mark where the water rolled back
history is over and everything’s up for grabs
the gates are down, no keepers about
doesn’t matter anymore if you’re in or out
the rain is crashing all around the faithless and devout

and it’s hard to tell the ladder from the cage
welcome to the post-heroic age

the slings and arrows got supersized
we marched on heavin with gold in our eyes
hearts of darkness beating under brows so civilized
son have you observed the time
every step we take is almost paradigm
existence feels like crime

cause something else has quickened up the pace
a checkered flag for all the human race

nothing’s gonna help the medicine go down

now i recognize the lay of the landslide
an eastern wind to sweep the table clean
the time has come for everyone
to mean what they say and say what they mean

we fly our flags and try to pretend
Ii’s okay to settle for allies when we could have had friends
now that we have got the means to justify our ends

maybe we can build on what remains
but growing up is going mad by grains

nothing’s gonna help the medicine go down


from Almost Paradigm, released September 19, 2019

Singer-songwriters Thom Bowers & Matt Meldrum (along with a host of friends and collaborators) make music that bridges the gap between pop-rock punch and art-rock extravagance.
