07. Closer (Featuring Steve Taylor and Some Other Band)

On Fire
by Peter Furler



 

it’s a wrap / it’s a lock / it’s the future’s shock / and it’s heading straight for us // outta nowhere / the twist / it’s the cosmic kiss / that can recreate us // oh, oh, oh, oh / something’s coming / oh, oh, oh, oh / something’s coming / oh, oh, oh, oh / don’t you want in? / oh, oh, oh, oh / something’s coming // closer / closer / closer / Lord, it’s hard to ignore / closer / closer / closer / are you getting ready for? // little pills / make us nice / shiny toys entice / get us tweaking our resumes // t the cross / i the dot / we completely forgot / how to number our days // the future’s coming / and it’s got its own demands / the future’s coming / but we all have bigger plans // another plague / another war / and the Earth shakes some more / then we’re back to sleeping late // somebody’s knockin’ / my Lord’s / got His foot / in the door / wish we’d all been ready for // the future’s coming / and it’s got its own demands / the future’s coming / are you getting ready for?

Behind the Song:
'A funk-pop explosion with a serious backbeat, “Closer” fuses a quirky but provoking ‘future is almost now’ lyric with a progressive sonic feast in collaboration with musician/producer/filmmaker Steve Taylor. This standout track takes Peter’s penchant for the dramatic to a whole new level, and simultaneously asks perhaps the most relevant question of all: “Are you ready for the future?”' - Melissa Riddle Chalos
