Cosmic Bos Music Podcast


May 2, 2022

To accompany our most recent podcast episode 'Making of an Album Episode 3: Alternative Writing Techniques' we decided to throw together a song using our new improv squared method of song construction.
The song we put together was this one, 'The More You Learn, The Less You Know'.

Nick and Andy improvised a 3 minute dirty track, then they layered over the top of it with another improv. Then the track was bounced and Andy went away and wrote some lyrics to go with it (see below for full lyrics). The boys then recorded the vocals, Nick mixed and mastered the track, and Tada! full song made in a couple of sessions.

The video was done in a similar fashion, we had recorded ourselves making the song, so all we did was just overlay it all over itself, pretty weird but quite effective we thought.

THE MORE YOU LEARN, THE LESS YOU KNOW by Andy Jackson

From the pedestal, always poised to fall
Dust off, trust cost cuts take it all
Down the drain, round the bend in a fuddle
Bruised and beaten and in need of a cuddle
Spell checking out the witch, stitch in time
On the line served straight up with a lime
Hit the cooks books for a fresher look
Let the knowledge marinade into every nook

Life sets the test, we have a go
The more you learn, the less you know
Since we exist, let’s try to grow
The more you learn, the less you know
It’s ups and downs, a wild show
The more you learn, the less you know
The more you learn, the less you know

Nurse the purse string theory nothings happening
Waste resources reinforces this recycling
No certainty on survival guaranteed
Malnutrition breeds servants to the corporate greed

Life is the test, let’s have a go
The more you learn, the less you know
No one knows best, it’s afterglow
The more you learn, the less you know
Through ups and downs we live the show
The more you learn, the less you know
The more you learn, the less you know

Stacking A grades while the memory fades
Got stats but the facts always misbehave
Plot points got this map in a muddle
So confused now I’m in need of a cuddle

We passed the test, we’re good to go
The more you learn, the less you know
Place the bets, go with the flow
The more you learn, the less you know
Get Joel and Mike, call Tom and Crow
The more you riff , the less you groan
Fight or flight, or toe to toe
The more you learn, the less you know
The more you learn, the less you know
The more you learn, the less you know
