Song Description

For a start musically he builds a pretty slick tune, one which takes all the good ideas from mature pop and accessible rock -- a latino groove, strong melody and intriguing lyricism as well as the occasional squalling guitar run, a thumping piano, calypso whistles and even a kooky xylophone break -- and weaves them into an infectious musical boogie. And then once you get into the lyrics you realise the analogous nature of the song, beyond its horror referencing title, it is actually about the horrors of small talk, stilted, first date chit-chat and the fact that the art of conversation may well be on its last legs. Well, thankfully music isn't and Mr P. proves that with a bit of thought, pop can be a whole different ball game, though the lyrical subtlety may be a bit lost on the average dance floor denizen and the complex blend of musical styles might be a bit confusing for the little darlings. So maybe we just file this alongside the works of other subtle, satirical greats such Randy Newman, siting as it does somewhere between social comment, comedy, musical score and pop for those who think creativity is still a platform for people to actually have something to say, something beyond the Bieber Book of Boring Babble which has become the norm. Lewis Papier again proves that there is room for funny and interesting dialogue in modern music, I guess we just have to sit here for a while whilst everyone else catches up. It could be a long wait but at least I'm in good company.

Lyrics

I had a Zombie Conversation

Verse 1: I had a Zombie Conversation
Walking down the street
She looked into my eyes
I was going down to defeat

Verse 2: I had a Zombie Conversation
Nothing seemed to work
My rapid fire questions
Made me sound like a jerk

Chorus:
Where you do you live, what do you do?
The third degree, well, that's nothing new
If you're determined to always pry
She'll surely end up...horrified

Verse 3: I had a Zombie Conversation
Didn't know what to say
No imagination, she just walked away

(Break)

Verse 4: I had a Zombie Conversation
The moon was shining bright
Blurted out those worthless words
But thought I'd take one more bite

(Bridge)
Now if you want to dance
Make sure her mind's enhanced
Those pictures of Paris, France
Will show...you can let yourself go

(Instrumental)

Verse 5: I had a Zombie Conversation
Never held the keys
My white flag of surrender
Fluttered in the breeze

Chorus:
Where you do you live, what do you do?
The third degree, well, that's nothing new
If you're determined to always pry
She'll surely end up...horrified

Verse 6: I had a Zombie Conversation
She didn't think it cool
No romantic pictures
Pegged me as a fool

Verse 7: I had a Zombie Conversation
Fell down on my knees
I had graduated
From the Zombie University

(Bridge)
Now if you want to dance
Make sure her mind's enhanced
Those pictures of Paris, France
Will show...you can let yourself go

(Break)

Instrumental,

I had a Zombie Conversation, etc.
