about

An earlier version of a song now called "Control", this was written for my 2006 Artrage Festival show Tomás Ford vs The Audience along with Five Times.

It was first drafted on the way home from a Sneaky Sound System show.

lyrics

Well, this is like Jamster™ The Live Show
Playing out my future ringtones
I'm why people hated disco.

Play my elevator electro
Jacking off my outsized ego
With you all numb from too much alcohol.

I'M RETARDING YOU.
I'M NOT PROVOKING THOUGHT.
I'M JUST PROVOKING YOU.
OH YEAH, I'M RETARDING YOU.

Come on and I'll teach you to act slow
Just ignore what you don't know
And boogie down in my front row.

Let's all pretend like we're so cool
When all this looks like is a high school
When the irony's over, you'll be a tool.

(repeat chorus)

You need to get down
Or step the fuck up

(massive, earthshaking breakdown)

(repeat chorus x2)

Waoh-wohw.
