02 FAME (3:57)
Fame is one of 4 songs on Timescape to have been written more than five years ago by the duo. It depicts the more unpleasant side of success, portraying a duo for whom a stark contrast in their individual levels of personal ambition has led them to separate paths in life: one is setting the scene alight, the other channel-hopping and embittered by their former partner's glory. A simple electro-tinted ballad built around a repetitive piano riff.

Lyrics

We were unlike the others
We had it all ahead
Then you set the season’s colours
While I lay in my bed

Fame
Quickly you were altered
Now you need a reminder
Of my name
Fame
Your determination
Turned my elimination
To your gain

Who cares that you’ve now money
I’m firmly grounded unlike you
You take without a worry
And do it all in public view

Fame
Quickly you were altered
Now you need a reminder
Of my name
Fame
Your determination
Turned my elimination
To your gain
