Old Man Wizard Premieres New Single "I Wanna Know"!

Posted on the 15 September 2021 by Ripplemusic

This is probably one of the weirder Old Man Wizard songs, not because it's especially weird as a song, but because it doesn't really sound like Old Man Wizard to my ear. This song was really heavily inspired by a few Japanese and South Korean pop groups, garage rock, and recognizing that the result of that inevitably sounds a bit like pop punk, so intentionally avoiding pop punk style drums or vocals. I think the result sounds like a low budget demo of The Strokes covering a Twice song. I think the lyrics are pretty straightforward; The song is about hypocrisy, abuse of power, and conflation of morality and religious belief. This is probably the last thing anyone expected us to release, but I hope you like it anyway!

Lyrics:

Tell me what you

Tell me what you do at night

Tell me what you think I think of you

Aren't you afraid

Why aren't you afraid of me

Why aren't you afraid I'll find out what you do

I'm watching you

When you look at yourself

Do you see someone else

Representing you

Telling you what you do

When you look at death's face

Hope you appreciate

The punishment that you face

Knowing that God is fake

How do you look

How do you look at yourself

How do you look at yourself in the mirror every day

I wanna know

I wanna know what you believe

I wanna know how often you cry yourself to sleep

You count on sheep

When you look at yourself

Do you see someone else

Representing you

Telling you what you do

When you look at death's face

Hope you appreciate

The punishment that you face

Knowing that God is fake

Every time you say His name

You should be ashamed

You're not someone else

You're responsible for yourself

And when you say those words

And tell them what you heard

That wasn't someone else

That's something you decided to say yourself
