"Worried about Ray" as written by and Gary Bonner Alan Raymond Sharland....
The truth be told, the truth be told
I'm worried about the future holds, the future holds
I'm starting to worry about Ray

The truth be told, the truth be told
I'm worried about the future holds, the future holds
I'm seriously worried about Ray

They say the future's out to get you
You know that I won't let you fall
They say the future's out to get you
You know that I won't let you fall

The truth be told, the truth be told
I'm treading on my tippy toes, my tippy toes
I'm starting to worry about Ray

The truth be told, the truth be told
I'm treading on my tippy toes, my tippy toes
I'm painfully so worried about Ray

They say the future's out to get you
You know that I won't let you fall
They say the future's out to get you
You know that I won't let you fall
No!

They say the future's out to get you
You know that I won't let you fall
They say the future's out to get you
You know that I won't let you fall

The future's out to get you, the future's out to get you, oh
The future's out to get you, the future's out to get you, oh

The truth be told, the truth be told
I'm worried what the future holds, the future holds
I'm so tired of being worried about Ray

    General CommentNah... Harryhausen and the video are just a cover up. What Irwin is really worried about is Ray Kurzweil and the Singularity. Harryhausen is in the past, the Singularity is the future! :)

    General CommentI reckon this song on the surface is what it says. "You know that I wont let you fall" is about a long standing friendship where trust and being there for each other were always the foundations of it, but now Ray is becoming withdrawn and the breakdown starts "I'm treading on my tippy toes" this is as if Ray is so withdrawn hes worried about stepping on his feelings but also hes tip-toeing around Ray because he fears making him worse. Ray has gone in the wrong direction or at least a direction that differs from his friend but a direction that cant be good or healthy because it will be a waste of a life; "They say the future's out to get you".The monster Ray has become (seen in the video) represents the unrecognisable characterRay now is but his friend has to shoot someone down in the end, meaning he has to either cut ties with Ray or be cruel to be kind in some way or another. Yet he will try his best but hes become "So tired of being worried about Ray" that he's ready to give up. So what started off so positively is negative in the end.

    General CommentIt does say at the end of the video
    "In honour of Ray Harryhausen"
    so thats probably right, it just amazes me that they can write such a catchy song with such great lyrics. There's not alot of songs around like that
