Exactly What a Synth Would Say

By E-dub on January 20, 2018 4:23 pm

I had a lot of fun with this one. It has some of the same cool synths as last week, but I added in a little guitar work as well. Also, I created my own drum beat with the piano roll for a change instead of using Addictive Drums 2 like I normally use. Then I had more fun writing lyrics and even more fun recording my vocals.

Lyrics:

I wonder if a robot can have feelings like mine.
Can he ever get nostalgic at just the scent of pine?
Can he miss a girl he barely even knows?
Does her face make all his circuits glow?

Will her touch send shivers through your platinum spine?
I wonder if you have feelings like mine.


Well, I ask if you’re a synth and you exclaim, "no way!"
But you know that that's exactly what a synth would say.
You say you'd never take my babe or set her heart aflame,
but I know that that's exactly what a synth would claim.


I wonder if an android ever stops to cry.
Does your coolant pump skip a beat each time that she walks by?
Does your air pump ever sputter as its bearings seize
from the tightness in your chest that makes it hard to breathe?

Will just a thought of her put sparkles in your cold silicon eye?
I wonder if you ever feel a need to cry.

Don't let that synth seduce your babe with his flashy lights and twiddly knobs! babes love twiddly knobs, y'know!

Listening to this after watching Blade Runner 2049; I like this much better. And it only took one person. ::)

I have a twiddly knob. She liked it for many years and then suddenly didn't anymore.

Thanks. Haven't seen it yet. I was thinking of the Fallout video game franchise when I came up with the title. Most of the rest is a weird sort of love song about the feelings we have when we're attracted to someone. Sometimes the lyrics just come out without much actual planning, which is nice because I suck at planning.

Thank you on both counts, Mr. Belly.

That's exactly what a human would say.
