Black Country, New Road – Science Fair Lyrics

Science Fair Lyrics – Black Country, New Road

I met her accidentally
It was at the Cambridge Science Fair
And she was so impressed
I could make so many things
Catch on fire

But I was just covered in bubbles of methane gas
And you ended up burnt
I am sorry
That I have always been a liar
Just to think! I could’ve left the fair with my dignity intact
And fled from the stage with the world’s second best Slint tribute act
OK today! I hide away
But tomorrow! I take the reins
But still living with my mother
As I move from one micro influencer to another

References, References, References
What are you on tonight?
I love this city
Despite the burden of preferences
What a time to be alive
Oh I know where I’m going
It’s Black Country out there!

I saw you undressing
It was at the Cirque Du Soleil
And it was such an intimate performance
I swear to god you looked right at me
And let a silk red ribbon fall between your hands

But as I slowly sobered
I felt the rubbing of shoulders
I smelt the sweat and the children crying
I was just one among crowded stands
And still with sticky hands
I bolted through the gallery
With Cola stains on my best white shirt
And nothing to lose
Oh I was born to run
It’s Black Country out there
It’s Black Country out there
It’s Black Country out there
