23rd Century

Here's a track from my album about wanting to be a robot. I figure lots of you folks can probably relate. My band is currently touring the east coast, with dates in VA, NC, WV, MD, PA, NJ, NY, CT, and VT. Details inside!

[And makes me glad I am humannaire/not human. This is not a robot song = Bad Morrissey.]

Hey, good luck on tour. Part of me misses that and wishes to do it again. The other part will sleep comfortably in my own bed knowing that I didn't have to hustle a floorspace to stay for four people that night.

no MA dates? bah!

I'm not sure I can decipher what humannaire is saying.

Thanks pete.

es_de_bah, hopefully we'll be in MA on 7/6, but that's yet to be confirmed.

Could you post the lyrics (or a link, if I somehow missed them on your site)? I enjoyed it quite a bit, but I'd like to see the prose!

This makes me rather happy.

Also, I'm seconding the sadness of no MA dates.

With thoughts that scatter and bones that shatter
and joints that creak like the floorboards
With skin that's spotted and guts all knotted
and blood that's barely lukewarm

I wanna be more perfect with gleaming circuits
and an engine made of polished steel
I wanna live on logic with gears and sprockets
and forget how loneliness feels

Cause I'm tired of this human form
wish I'd been built instead of born
with a self-reparing heart
so I don't die or fall apart

The system's busted, corroded, rusted
and no one can be trusted
I feel fragmented and dis-con-nec-ted
like I've been infected

And if anyone can help me set up an MA show, please e-mail me!

What do you know, we just confirmed a show at Mill Street Brews in Southbridge, MA, on 7/6. Hope to see some of you there!

Penultimate show of the tour tonight in Southbridge, MA! Come say hi and have a drink with us if you can make it.
