SHIP OF FOOLS

Hey here is track THREE from the new album. Those of you that ordered BEGN (which you can do RIGHT NOW) should have got an additional 5 songs today.

Fucked Up - Ship of Fools by Consequence of Sound

SHIP OF FOOLS
In the guts of a ship in the middle of the sea
Stands a ring for the rivals for everyone to see
They spar around the center of their own duality

The audience is full and pressed against the ropes
Chanting for the blood of the loser of the bout
The fighters are their fears and symbolize their hope
They want to escape but there is no way out

The speaker and the spoke, the axle and the wheel
The teller and the tale, the flower and the bee
The sword and the steel the beast and the yoke
The fish and the sea, the prisoner and the jail

Like God asking Abraham to kill his only son
He cries out for help, he stares at the sun
He never gets an answer when the day finally comes

When David fought Goliath he wasn't bound to lines
Now he'll never hit his mark, his opponent makes the rules
He's a servant to the story and a galleries confines
Drifting on a sea of words, trapped on a ship of fools

The speaker and the spoke, the axle and the wheel
The teller and the tale, the flower and the bee
The sword and the steel the beast and the yoke
The fish and the sea, the prisoner and the jail

You clamor for an outcome, a candid denouement
The hunger for a resolution manifests the end
It concludes with an ovation, clap the blood off of your hands

He knows he couldn't help her when she needed him the most
What he gave her won't undo the one thing that he took
He was the vine around a flower, love in a fatal dose
So his story won't endure - the losers never write the books

The speaker and the spoke, the axle and the wheel
The teller and the tale, the flower and the bee
The sword and the steel the beast and the yoke
The fish and the sea, the prisoner and the jail
The fire and the smoke the starved and the meal
The head and the tail the nut from the tree
The wax and the seal the dagger and the cloak
The loss and the grief the hammer and the nail

just wondering why in the song "its hard to be a dad", "redbox" and the expression "omg" are mentioned. i mean, the comp was released in 1977.

"Ship of Fools" is all over the web, but I posted the song to my blog after Matador sent me a CD with the new single. (And, yes, I realize that the song is available for download on davidcomestolife.com.)

I have written many materials on how to increase traffic to a website or a blog but I feel that this one is going to make much difference not only to those who are getting started but also to experienced online business people

I guess there's no way of saying this without offending Damian who seems to be a nice guy but after listening to davids town i just feel like i want to say this: what about re-recording a bunch of your material with other vocalists? Damians voice works on a few tracks imo but it's just not expressive enough, lacks in range and gets pretty grating quite fast, at least for me (and a lot of other people i'm quite sure). it's a bit of a shame to me that some of the greatest guitar based songs of the 00's haven't reached their full potential because of this. just mah two cents.

The core sound of Fucked Up is defined by Damian's radio unfriendly voice set against an otherwise accessible combination of multiple guitars and super tight rhythm section.

He also brings some unity to a diverse catalogue of music.

David's Town doesn't sound like Fucked Up, it sounds like several different bands, which of course it's meant too. If Damian was on the songs they'd sound like Fucked Up.

Actually, if Damian was on the David's Town songs, they'd sound like Fucked Up doing covers.

You have to go to the Matador store first and buy the album/cd, then they will email you the info

you guys suck! pink eyes is awesome and MAKES the live shows
yeah there are a couple or records where his vocals dont quiiite seem to fit (dangerous fumes IMO, the instrumental version of that song is way better), but when they do it's incredible

There's one more unannounced band playing Dundas Square with the Descendents. Is it you guys?

I think 100000 marbles is the true decendant of Billy Corgan and that Damian would be so lucky to even lick his shadow. There must be a decent vocalist skulking around in the Torontian underground that can unfuck the sound a little bit more to my liking.

These newly released tracks (from the forthcoming album) are absolutely amazing. You guys were already one of my favourite bands but you're becoming favouriter with every new release. I can't wait for the album!

10:35 AM  
Anonymous Anonymous said...

If you were to unfuck the vocals then the band would have to change it's name to 'Slightly Impaired'.

i second that.
not the comment above, but rather the one about these new songs.
they are among the best i've ever heard. from any band.

Oh so u like the edge huh? yeah real good guitar player he just uses echo for everything.

7:31 AM  
Anonymous Anonymous said...

I don't like the edge.

I like Syd Barrett. And East Bay Ray. There was a little bit of slapback echo on nearly everything they did.

I don't own a delay pedal. If I was into delay, I imagine that I would still be getting high all the time.

When David fought Goliath he wasn't bound to line. Now he'll by no suggests strike his mark, his opponent could make the rules. He's a servant toward the tale collectively with a galleries confines.
What can we do in the relax time ? Listen to the music, watch TV, how about play the online games? We can play the WOW to spend the boring time and can also get the best WOW Gold during play the game. We can also play the famous Korea online games--Tera, this game is very famous in the world and there are many Tera Gold waiting for you! And we can also play the RS Gold.
