December 3rd | Song of the Day | Down, Down, Down to Mephisto’s Café
Artist: Streetlight Manifesto
Album: Somewhere in the Between (2007)
Streetlight Manifesto, a post-90s favorite and alleged riders of the fourth wave, are a seven-piece band hailing from New Jersey, headed by former frontman of Catch 22, Tomas Kalnoky. Streetlight is famous for their poetic lyrical depth, fast-paced energy, and complex musical style that not only draws upon traditional ska and punk, but an entire breadth of genres familiar and exotic that makes their music as a whole almost unclassifiable. Regardless, Streetlight Manifesto’s music has received almost universal critical acclaim and the band itself has developed a very tight-knit, devoted fanbase. In 2007, they released their third album, Somewhere in the Between. “Down, Down, Down to Mephisto’s Café" was released as a single from Somewhere a month before the album’s release. alongside “We Will Fall Together” on a double A-Side record. “Down, Down” is one of Streetlight’s most religiously charged songs, with lyrics sung by a character with shaken faith caught between religion and atheism, and speaking out against the damage the close-mindedness of both sides can do. The album as a whole carries themes of belief, death, and the afterlife, and how we all live and look for meaning somewhere in the between.
Way back when the prophecies began
Do you think they really had a master plan
Or were they merely writing fables, stories?
I don’t know but it has occurred to me
The punishment that they threaten constantly
It’s only real if they could just convince me.
can i be your cigarette
so you can pull me out
of a black dark box
so you can light me up
when i’m cold
so you can keep me on
so you can inhale me
even though you know
how toxic i am
but you don’t really care
cause you love that feeling
in your lungs
It’s been a full day guys.
But whatever. I get it and I’m over it.
It’s fine that I wasn’t wanted around.
No use crying over it.
I’m going to watch Sister Act and laugh my ass off because that’s the best medicine - movies with my Little Caesars pizza and laughing until I cry tears of joy and not sadness.
Take that God, I won’t let whatever it is you’re doing set me back.
It’s a nice feeling to be free.
Miss Frizzle and Mary Poppins, Lady Time Lords.
I ship it to the moon.
The Teacher and The Nanny. The Magic School Bus is a TARDIS, and Mary’s bag is bigger on the inside. No one will ever convince me that this is not true. Oh, and I ship it.
For crying out loud, the Magic School Bus actually does travel through time and space, easily changes it’s form like a Chameleon Circuit, and is casually ALIVE in certain ways. It’s a friggin’ TARDIS in all but name!
Anyone who has ever said the doctor could not be a woman has literally never seen either of these characters in action.
All because they do not wish to see anyone else suffer the way they do
