"Sophisdecay" as written by Brian Mcternan, Francis Mark and Joshua C Newton....
Will this discontent breed progression or insanity,
At least I'll have something to outlive my body,
Through the city we wander like a dog without a collar,
I'm the same sword swallower, not much has changed,
Fakers that vomit lines from dead philosophers,
But your vocab doesn't quite match your posture,
Through the city we wander like dogs without collars,

I'm the same sword swallower, not much has changed,
And we won't be impressed by pseudo intellect,
We won't fall for that
Contrived sophistication is a parasitic invasion,
When you've got no imagination, prosthetic humans,
Through the city we wander like dogs without collars.
I'm the same sword swallower, I just keep on moving

    General CommentHe missed a part or two. These are the full lyrics:

    Will this discontent breed progression or insanity
    At least I'll have something to outlive my body
    Through the city we wonder like a dog without a collar
    I'm the same sword swallower, not much has changed

    Fakers that vomits lines from dead philosophers
    But your vocab doesn't quite match your posture
    Through the city we wonder like dogs without collars
    I'm the same sword swallower, not much has changed

    And we won't be impressed by pseudo-intellect
    We won't fall for that
    We won't carry paperbacks and never crack the cover
    We won't fall for that

    Contrived sophistication is a parasitic invasion
    When you've got no imagination, prosthetic humans
    Through the city we wonder like dogs without collars
    I'm the same sword swallower, I just keep on moving

    And we won't be impressed by pseudo-intellect
    We won't fall for that
    We won't carry paperbacks and never crack the cover
    We won't fall for that

    My InterpretationTo me, it seems that Francis is mocking the, well, pseudo-intellectuals. I think he's critical of them, and kinda calling their bluff as if to say, "stop pretending to be smart by emulating the philosophers from ages ago" and almost saying learn things your own way.
