Stegosaurus Rex - Nowhere To Run Lyrics

Nowhere To Run

You’re gonna die
I’m gonna kill you
You’re gonna die
I’m gonna kill you

Feeling all blue
I’ve got no more time
They all hate me
Because of my crime

Their threats come at me
Their voices are loud
All to condemn me
My face is still proud

You were my good friend
I saved you before
I thought you turned good now
But you asked for some more

You had to provoke me
So I beat you
Watched your skull bleed
So now I feel blue

Out of ideas
Nowhere to run
Looking right down
Barrel of a gun

And so I dream
Voices in my head
Delusions mock me
My best friend is dead

I feel no guilt
But I shed a tear
I see your dead body
With the blood all smeared

A bird sings a song
It’s all for you
Outside it’s so warm
And the skies are all blue

You’re gonna die
I’m gonna kill you
You’re gonna die
I’m gonna kill you

Yeah, it's pretty messed up lyrics. The story behind it is pretty funny tho. I made the track 2 years ago, when I first learned how to make a vocoder. As I was doing a mic check, my little brother came in to check out what I was doing and I told him to say something.

"You're gonna die!"

I then took the sample and warped it into the half of the chorus. Then I realized it was fucking catchy...

The bassline flowed right underneath, and the rest of the song came into my mind that night...

ah... the endearing things little brothers say. Awesome song, BTW. I've been hearing it a lot on Pandora.com

chris said...

enjoy your songs!

how did you setup a vocoder? do you have a good tutorial to recommend?

Stegosaurus Rex said...

Ahhh, good idea, I did my own experimentation with vocoding to get it right. I'll write up a tutorial this week!

Ben said...

Definitely dig the song. I also heard it on Pandora- thanks for putting it out there!

I came here to find out what 80's dystopian this came from - Blade Runner, Solar Babies, Night of the Comet - and was pleased you just made this up!
Do the vocoder to some old monologue

The song sounds a lot like Crystal Castles. I like it dearly. Soooo transcedental.

Like a lot of the other people commenting, I heard this song on Pandora. I love it! You said you made it ~4 years ago? (2 years before Dec 08) Have you considered making a dubstep remix? That would be awesome

Anonymous said...

Found this through pandora. Love it! To me it sounded more like:
You're gonna die
Probably like you-u-u

Until I read the lyrics, of course.

heather_quinn said...

Here's what NOT to do with this song: listen to it on your iPod at the gym and sing out loud...forgetting only YOU can hear the music.

Anonymous said...

Love the songs- the lyrics are creepy- but the song is awesome!

somebody played your song on turntable.fm. i immediately did some research on what i had just heard and after a few days of putting this track on heavy youtube rotation, here i am... =) so i just wanted to compliment you on this track as i've already played it for multiple friends.

Today this song and album artwork magically became my homescreen on my phone and then went away... Not exactly the kind of song you want to hear when you think someone has hacked your phone and is trying to send you some kind of message.... Sincerely freaked the f**k out

April said...

I love this song so much. Not only is it catchy, I think it's pretty intimate.

It's about "Of Mice and Men".
It's the final scene.
Lennie is the best friend.
The song is sung by George; his thoughts right after what he did to Lennie.
It's not that creepy when you know what it's about. More so sad.
