Lyrics for Robot Sex

Because the robot voices can be hard to understand, I thought it would be good to post the lyrics along with some commentary about the words for each song.

Robot Sex

The lyrics were constructed – I created a list of words with the trans- prefix that I felt described some aspect of robot sex; that became the chorus. Then I wrote one lyric line for each trans- word, and that’s the verse structure – first verse line matches first chorus trans- word. I got the idea while reading the latest Eno biography, need I say more.

Juice slides through my membrane
Carries my soul over to you
I see it through the translucent brain
Bio computer protein blue
Transudation
Transmigration
Transillumination
Transamination
Two logical systems intertwine
Surpassing our individual selves
A next generation probe spline
Engaged in forever delves
Transactional
Transcendental
Transgenerational
Transhistorical
We migrate from state to state
We multiply our existence
Change our form through our plate
As hydraulics witness
Transhumance
Transvaluation
Transmogrification
Transcutaneous

Funk da Bot

This started as a funk song. Lots of allusions to digital equipment.

New code on a rainy day
Plug in turn me on
Freon freeze the circuit board
Spun up disk is on
Circuit, circuit
Funk da bot, baby
Funk da bot, oh yeah
Funk da bot, baby
Funk da bot, oh yeah
Roll down to the local pub
Drink high-octane juice
Robot is the center fold
Kink Is on the loose
Circuit, circuit
Funk da bot, baby
Funk da bot, oh yeah
Funk da bot, baby
Funk da bot, oh yeah
Invest in some power grub
Oil up drip some lube
Power is the Midas touch
Turn on rev it up
Circuit, circuit
Funk da bot, baby
Funk da bot, oh yeah
Funk da bot, baby
Funk da bot, oh yeah

Symbolic Locution

This song came to me in complete sections. I knew from the start it would be a sad song about a robot seeking connection.

I feel it, I feel it
The heartbeat
Everyone’s talking, not to me
Ostracized
Categorized
Let me tell you who I am
Metal rhythm drives me mad
Hydraulic fluid pumping, lubing
Servos sync we beat as one
We penetrate each other
You’re in
