The Rising Decline Project on Bill Selak Talks: Part 5 of 30

In episode 5, I talk about the third track from my old band Rising Decline’s album Socially Acceptable Disaster. In each episode, I try to connect lessons learned (and just fun stories) to educational technology. Lessons learned in this episode: when to play your role in a team, and how the ability to create content has changed so completely in the past 15 years.

You might want to start with the first episode of this series.  Or just listen to this episode. Either way, head over and listen to the song, I’m talking about in this episode, Memoirs of a Forgotten Rockstar.

The Rising Decline Project on Bill Selak Talks: Part 6 of 30

You’ve listened to the episode, now listen to the song, and sing along. Free for a limited time. And by limited, I mean forever.

Note: this is the third track of the 15-track album, and episode 6 of the 30 episode podcast series.

Memoir of a Forgotten Rockstar

(in the key of D minor, in 6/8)

Headphones on, lyrics in hand,
He’s listening to you as he goes to bed.
It moves on, the message you give,
the lives that you change, his reason to live.

Your voice is a loaded gun.
A cynic says that it kills all.
But we believe there’s more inside, there’s more inside.
You persuade all in spite of me.

Those Wonder Years he looked up to you,
followed your band, and took you to heart.
And now you see, you’re not much to me;
You’re larger than life, still just a CD.

Your voice is a loaded gun.
A cynic says that it kills all.
But we believe, there’s more inside, there’s more inside.
You persuade all in spite of me.

Epic instrumental

Your voice is a loaded gun.
A cynic says that it kills all.
But we believe, there’s more inside, there’s more inside.
We’ll change the world in spite of you.
