The Rising Decline Project on Bill Selak Talks: Part 3 of 30

In episode 3, I talk about the second 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 break the rules, and when to follow them.

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, Lego Planet.

The Rising Decline Project on Bill Selak Talks: Part 4 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 second track of the 15-track album, and episode 4 of the 30 episode podcast series.

Lego Planet

(in the key of F# minor)

Mother Nature, Mother nature please forgive me.
Please forgive the scalpel that I use.
I don’t mean to scar or disgrace you,
But, my love, the monies are way too good.

These city walls bear the shape of their plastic mold.
The parts and all the pieces painted one by one
Til it’s become
A wasteland under skies once blue,
Original replaced with new.

The clank and roll of the surgeon’s strokes
Removes the dirt, replaces all the old.
Why should we even bother constructing in solid?
When, my love, we plate you with pure gold.

These city walls bear the shape of their plastic mold.
The parts and all the pieces painted one by one
Til it’s become
A wasteland under skies once blue,
Original replaced with new.
Long live technology!
