about

It’s been 10 years since their last album and they’re back from outer-space: tougher, wilder and sharper than ever. Upcoming long player Snake sees ROCKET SCIENCE at the height of their powers, charged with a cosmic energy born of a unique alignment between four exceptional musicians. A truly collaborative work, recorded by the band’s guitarist Paul Maybury. Mixing improvised moments with post-punk, garage, space rock and dark imagery. The songs reflect a decaying post-postmodern world, that is both self-destructive and in denial.

Track Name: Chasing Rainbows
I'm in a blue room now
with rainbows overhead
Ribbons tied up,
rainbows overhead
What you want cut it out close your mouth baby
Because you're too far out
You're too far out

I'm in a blue room now
I'm in the blue room

Music overhead,
ribbons tied up
Desert rainbows overhead
Close your mouth cut it
I said, shut your mouth baby
You're gone too far

I'm in a blue room now
I'm in the blue room

I'm in the blue room now
with rainbows overhead
Ribbons tied up,
rainbows overhead
Stop it now you've gone too far
you're making me crazy
Shut your, shut your mouth baby
it's all too far

I'm in a blue room now
I'm in the blue room now
I'm in a blue room now
I'm in the blue room now
Track Name: Snake
My baby is a snake
Likes to hiss at me at night
Likes to slink around Dancing in the moonlight
Here comes the thunder the rain on my side
You know, their souls on fire
Makes me feel alright

Says hi, says hi, say hi, say hi

Everyone's telling me
I've got rocks in my mind
I don't really care
It's so wicked and out of sight
Black rimmed glasses
Brown suit and a tie
Dancing with a snake
Will kill you
In time
In your mind

My baby's so smooth
You can see them in the sun
Their moving real, real slow now
Got me on the run
Watch them slither and slide
Framed like a picture
They've got their eyes on you
Drinking in their mixture

Says hi, says hi, say hi, say hi

Everyone's telling me
I've got rocks in my mind
I don't really care
It's so wicked and out of sight
Black rimmed glasses
Brown suit and a tie
Dancing with a snake
Will kill you
In time
In your mind
Track Name: Lipstick Red
Up on the second level
A set of tables and chairs
Light streams angled sharp

Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange and Red

Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange and Red

Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange and Red

Straight lines and the screech of tyres
Under the hot, hot sun

Walk the stairs her tablet is on
Sitting down together
She stamps out her cigarette

Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange and Red

Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange and Red

Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange and Red

Lipstick red the old man looks over
Ladies two by two walk down the stairwell

Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange and Red

Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange and Red

Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange and Red

Straight lines and the screech of tyres
Under the hot, hot sun
Track Name: I Hate Hate
I Hate Hate

Get that evidence out of my sight
Professor we must disinvite
You are wrong but I don't know why I'm right
Won't someone bubblewrap my brain
To isolate me from the pain
My concrete bubble cracks from strain

Ooh I hate Hate Speech
Ban it
I hate it. I hate hate
It’s not free speech when you say it

Your nano-aggression I can’t stand
It hurts my feelings. Must be banned
Cease and desist order in hand
Welcome to my opinion of truth
Verbal violence killing youth
Outrage Industrial Complex - whoo!

Ooh I hate Hate Speech
Ban it
I hate it. I hate hate
It’s not free speech when you say it

Vacuate the lie-brary
We declare Word War Three
Enlightenment - way too bright for me
Freedom from speech
Is within our reach
Let's take the slippery slide to tyranny
Whee!

I'm outraged
I'm outraged
I'm outraged
I'm outraged

Ooh I hate Hate Speech
Ban it
I hate it. I hate hate
I love free speech when you can’t say it
Track Name: Dark Corridors
Strapped to the bed yelling.
Is there anyone out there.
I need someone please help
Can anybody save me?

I didn't know where I was or why the bed was situated
high up on the ceiling and it was hot tight
belts secured me to.

Raised up on stilts, ceiling.
What am I doing here, floating?
Like accumulated, vapour.
Drifting away aimless.
Drifting away aimless.
Can anybody save me?

I didn't know where I was or why the bed was situated
high up on the ceiling and it was hot tight
belts secured me to.

I didn't know where I was or why the bed was situated
high up on the ceiling and it was hot tight
belts secured me to.

Hey there, anyone.
Won't someone help me.
I neeeed
Somebody to save me

I didn't know where I was or why the bed was situated
high up on the ceiling and it was hot tight
belts secured me to.

I didn't know where I was or why the bed was situated
high up on the ceiling and it was hot tight
belts secured me to.

The bed

Track Name: Cheers Pinger
Between 50 min and an hour
Pulse of electrical energy
Rolling through with you on a contact high
Might be a shock to the system if it's very strong
Don't worry it will be alright
Might want to sit down or head straight to the dance floor
Don't drink any alcohol
Be on the safe side
Do you feel warm and floaty
You know you’re on it
Perception of things leaves your head clean
Everything seems unique clarity of mind
Insight vision tactile sensors heightened
Perspective shift
Minutes of space and time
Feelings of empathy and understanding


You may want to dance
Sit down look at the carpet or hug a friend
It is probably fairly different a lot of the time
Dancing all night gurning your nuts off on speedy pills
Get MDMA pill say Man Bunk pill I just can't dance to this 360, bpm gabbo psycho hardcore you know the score metal fusion techno and then dump a half weight of speed to compensate
Track Name: Back For More
I'm a manic child with a brain full of strychnine
I like to fly so high I come down with a crash
I like an evil woman who's just like a witch girl
But I keep it in the files of the FBI
You know I keep it in the files of the FBI
Plastic fantastic is so static
I got black in my soul don't want to be alone

But now I'm wah hoo back for more, back for more
you know I'm whaa hoo back for more, back for more

Some times I wonder why I get so fucking bored
I hate people motivated by things overrated
That style of rock roll that leaves me so cold
But I keep it in the files of the FBI
You know, I keep it in the files of the FBI
Wrapped fashion
Plastic passion

But now I'm whaa hoo back for more, back for more,
you know I'm whaa hoo back for more, back for more
whaa hoo back for more, back for more
you know I'm whaa hoo back for more, back for more

C'mon girl let's get out of hear
C'mon baby it's got to be clear

Ow back for more
Back for more
Track Name: The Curve of Your Back
The curve of your back is evenly supported
Fingers massaging down your spine
Buttocks held firm your head is cradled
Your feet are grounded on the floor
Either side your hands held secure
Swivel round for a differed view
From any direction, you will be encouraged
Feeling relaxed and at ease I know I'm Safe here with you

Lush lime green carpet and design
Brown chairs glass windows and tiled floors
Soft green plastic grass
The skyline is filled with water and glass

The curve of your back is evenly supported
Fingers massaging down spine
Buttocks held firm your head is cradled
Feet are grounded on the floor
Either side your hands held secure
Swivel round for a differed view
From any direction, you will be encouraged
Feeling relaxed and at ease I know I'm Safe here with you
Yeah safe here with you
Safe here with you
Safe here with you
