Arctic Monkeys - Science Fiction Lyrics




Religious iconography giving you the creeps?
I feel rougher than a disco lizard tongue along your cheek
The rise of the machines
I must admit you gave me something momentarily
In which I could believe
But the hand of harsh reality's ungloved
And it's on its way back in to scoop you up
Not on my watch

I want to stay with you my love
The way some science fiction does

Reflections in the silver screen of strange societies
Swamp monster with a hard-on for connectivity
The ascension of the C.R.E.A.M
Mass panic on a not too distant future colony
Quantitative easing

I want to make a simple point about peace and love
But in a sexy way where it's not obvious
Highlight dangers and send out hidden messages
The way some science fiction does

I've got the world on a wire in my little mirror mirror on the wall
In the pocket of my raincoat

So I tried to write a song to make you blush
But I've a feeling that the whole thing
May well just end up too clever for its own good
The way some science fiction does

    I listen while i’m high😸

  20. Rae ofLyte

    I want to stay with you my love
    The way some science fiction does

    Reading the lyrics to this song makes it seem oddly erotic. Like there's a double entendre going on here..Especially the last verse
    So I tried to write a song to make you blush
    But I've a feeling that the whole thing
    May well just end up too clever for its own good
    The way some science fiction does

  21. 喻柏铭

    The lyrics are beyond this world.

    Every time I listen carefully to them I get even more amazed.
    Thanks God, Daddy is back

    That riff at 2:32 reminds me of that old Goosebumps Tv Series theme song haha

  31. benjamin Gonzalez campdera

    Great track about soft disclosure via science fiction . So clever for the one who understand the hidden meaning of this track.

  32. Alex Verwest

    Obra maestra.

  33. Johnny Eco

    Feck Yes!

  34. Daniel Martinez

    I'm my opinion, what Alex is trying to do in this song is to make a simple point about peace and love, but in a sexy way where it's not obvious :)

  55. João de Melo

  56. Maat 33

    Amo tanto 😍😍😍😍😍

  57. Juggernaut Gamer

    REAL MUSIC IS BACK !!!!!

  58. laurxn ᪥

    Why does 2:12 give me the IAMX thought lol?

  59. Lorrie

    Lyrically, this album and Humbug are their best. I place this before Humbug becuase it has more depth and meaning than Humbug. I think science fiction and ultracheese are among their best-written songs.
    This particular track and 2 other songs were my least favorite on the album but I’ve recently fallen in love with this one.
    Maybe, in the future I might come to like first ever monster truck front flip and she looks like fun

    Emely M

    personally I think that their live version of "she looks like fun" in the late late show is better than the studio version, you should check it out if you haven't already the pace is a bit faster and I think for me that's what makes it better
    also the studio version from what I remember it sounded like he was just whispering the lyrics which isn't the case with the live version

  60. Barbara Alice Dronenburg

    Nobody say's it. So I won't either.

  61. Jesus Christ

    WHY WON'T YOU PLAY THIS LIVE

  62. Nikita Snezhkov

    I'm lost, need to ask Mark where is silver screen in Tranquility base, want to watch some science fiction. Could you direct my call?

  63. Loralyn F.

    I think out of all artists he's the most poetic

  64. Loralyn F.

    God his voice is sexy!

  65. Segg3r

    Tranquility Base meets Humbug in this one

  66. Felipe Viegas

    "but ive a feeling that the whole thing my well just end up too clever for its own good" this whole album in a nutshell lol

    Fab7

    don't agree, at all.

  67. NOAM MANRI

    is this the goosebumps intro song?

  68. ARCHIIMEDESS

    This has some kind of Pink Floyd vibe to it... I like it

  69. n00se

    Religious iconography giving you the creeps?
    I feel rougher than a disco lizard tongue along your cheek
    The rise of the machines
    I must admit you gave me something momentarily
    In which I could believe
    But the hand of harsh reality's un-gloved
    And it's on its way back in to scoop you up
    But not on my watch

    I want to stay with you, my love
    The way some science fiction does

    Reflections in the silver screen of strange societies
    Swamp monster with a hard on for connectivity
    The ascension of the CREAM
    Mass panic on a not too distant future colony
    Quantitative easing
    I want to make a simple point about peace and love
    But in a sexy way where it's not obvious
    Highlight dangers and send out hidden messages

    The way some science fiction does
    The way some science fiction does

    I've got the world on a wire
    In my little mirror mirror on the wall
    In the pocket of my raincoat
    So I tried to write a song to make you blush
    But I've a feeling that the whole thing
    May well just end up too clever for its own good
    The way some science fiction does

  89. Than McDowell

    I started out hating this, monster truck, and golden trunks.

    Now I can’t get enough of them. I’m always that way with new arctic monkeys music and I never learn.

  90. sweaq123

    The lyrics are beyond this world.

    Every time I listen carefully to them I get even more amazed.

    Felipe Viegas

    its like more meaning just pops up the more you listen, its amazing

  91. Andrei Florin

    Great track, first song on the album that I like a bit more and doesn't sound like elevator music to me. Also, it shares its title with Brand New's great work "Science Fiction"! :D

  92. G Caes

    All the bass lines of this new album are soooo good

  93. Emílio Augusto A.Santos

    Bravo!!!!

  94. Trippin dude

    I hope they make more music like this because it's great.

  95. beautyfades

    First two listenings I thought of this as garbage. The next five billion times however...

  96. Mardy Bum

    marvelous lyrics fit the music like a glove
