about

"Robot Hearts" is a sci-fi themed synth-rock EP about a scientist, an android, and an overwhelming desire to be alone. Heavily synthesized vocals and electronica boosted by a sly nod toward the Pacific Northwest guitar aesthetic spiraling out of control in a break-beat-drum escape pod.

Track Name: Interview
If you don’t believe them, you don’t have to believe it
If they ask you to leave, you don’t have to leave it
You can make up the rules; you don’t have to follow them
Lie about your strength to get in the door
Make up what you think they might want you to say
Then you might be the hero at the end of day
Rearrange, Rearrange
Track Name: Robot Hearts
We’re moving right along
In a straight line
Like passenger cars holding hands
Awash in the sound, we’re moving very fast
But I’m not afraid with you in the lead
Robot hearts are simple things
They don’t give up
Robot hearts are simple things
They don’t give up
Less conditional than most
Robot hearts are simple things
I’m strangely skilled
Yet absent from all those trappings
Of human hearts
I won’t betray your trust or secrets…
Robot hearts with human parts
If you could see things how I see things
You would not think I was so bright
But I love you because I am programmed to
If you were as simple, you would understand that I miss you
Every day
I miss you
Every day
I miss you
Robot hearts can break
Track Name: Patch of Green
Sun rise looks different from space
Video screen projects your beautiful face
It’s all I've got but it doesn't take your place
It’s all I've got
We've gone
Too long
We've gone
Too Long
I’m out there
Find me looking back down
I’m out there
Find me looking back down
I’m out there
Find me looking back down
I’m out there
Find me looking back down
I’m out there
Find me looking back down
I’m out there
Find me looking around…
Track Name: Winter Saturday
Winter Saturday is the call sign
Lost in space time
But if you could see in my mind (it’s too distorted)
We lost Winter Saturday (the trees all sing in my mind)
We lost Winter Saturday
Come in, Winter Saturday
We lost Winter Saturday (it’s too distorted)
Track Name: Where do you go?
When you sleep, where do you go?
High in mountains, mixed in with the snow,
Down in the forest, unseen in the trees,
Are you haunting the cellar, or are you with me?
Where do you go?
Rain will soothe your strong emotions
I’ll protect you and see you through
Rain will soothe your strong emotions
Where do you go?
When you dream, I’ll be dreaming with you
To the ocean, down into the blue
In the sunset, on the shore of your mind
I’ll be with you until the end of time
Until the end of time
Until the end of time
Until the end of time
Track Name: The triumphant return of the Astronaut (Child of earth)
Hey, remember me
She said using words, I don’t understand
My Spanish ain’t so good
But neither is hers
That smile is so real
Remember Me
Hey, remember me
She said using words
I don’t understand
My Spanish ain’t so good
But neither is hers
That smile is so real
Remember me, remember me
Take your picture with my camera
Please don’t forget me
(Take it home)
Remember me
In the green mountain high, we don’t wonder why
We just want to be left alone to live in peace
If there’s peace on this earth, we can find it here (we keep looking)

In the green mountain high, we don’t wonder why
We just want to be left alone to live in peace
If there’s peace on this earth, then we can find it here (and I can’t find it) KEEP LOOKING
A child
A child
A child
A child (of earth)
