about

This song is in the key of F#m.
George plays the guitar parts on the Ice Maiden straight into the S900, although there are some sweet guitar passages in the live version.
The bassline for this song has killed speakers!
When the song was written, Jeff played the chords on keys whilst Pete was singing then changed to play bass in between the vocals.
Along with Medicines and Terminal Road, this song received radio airplay in the UK and Spain.

lyrics

THE FORGER
Never missed a chance to make
A lighter look, a happy fake
So the masterpiece it was forged
A different name can’t make it more
So it’s short in antique years
Do you like what you see and hear

Or are you some scientific son?
If it don’t measure up do you come undone?
Are you some scientific son?
If it don’t measure up do you come undone?

Never walked a crooked mile
That stayed so straight all the while
So the picture didn’t fit the view
Though the TV man said: “Yes, it do!”
It’s more paste than precious gem
Good enough for a close-up friend

Or are you some scientific son?
If it don’t measure up do you come undone?
Are you some scientific son?
If it don’t measure up do you come undone?

Never missed a time to lie
Just to see a gem-bright eye
So the real emotion it was false
But you can’t be nobody else
So reality it isn’t real
Then what you see is what you steal

Or are you some scientific son?
If it don’t measure up do you come undone?
Are you some scientific son?
If it don’t measure up do you come undone?

Or are you some scientific son?
If it don’t measure up do you come undone?
Are you some scientific son?
If it don’t measure up do you come undone?
