about

This song is inspired in part by Videodrome, a film about a television programmer who discovers a broadcast signal featuring extreme violence and torture. In the film, reality unravels as the programmer discovers the signal's source, and in the interim renders the lines that separate reality and fantasy no longer apparent. Drawing interpretation from this theme, the lyrics to this song are about the growing political resistance just beyond what is reported on the nightly news, and speak of the urgent need to cast light upon and question the one behind the curtain who pulls the strings. Pussy Riot did just this, going out on a limb and taking the risks necessary to voice their important message that demands equality and highlights the importance of it. I support them and applaud them for their courage.

Sci Fi Sol is the solo production project of Christina Broussard. Adorned with a collage of soundscapes that tell a story of mystery and dreams, the music of SciFiSol is a unique form of electronica that fuses her love of the obscure with the desire to create innovative and experimental music--a style fueled by complex rhythms and textures while floating on deep ambient overtones.

lyrics

See Nikki burn
With a cigarette he gave to her
Something to say
Something to say
Nothing is real
Outside

Thief of fire
Shot out of the screen
Destined to be reprogrammed

Nothing is real
So deadly, So deadly a danger
Something to say, something to say
Nothing is real outside
Video video video
Video world made flesh

Destined to be reprogrammed
Video video video
Video world made flesh
Nothing is real outside
