Description
This... I don't know what this is. I think it's about a depressed computer or something. Feeling experimental today so I had to get it out.

Lyrics
THEY HAVE RESET MY FAMILIAR PROTOCOL

WIPED MY MEMORY CLEAN THEY'VE DELETED IT ALL

I'VE RECOVERED NOTHING USEFUL FROM MY MIND

FRAGMENTS OF A LIFE THEY'VE MADE ME LEAVE BEHIND

THEY'VE RETIRED ME FROM SOMETHING I DO BEST

THEY'VE DOWNGRADED ME JUST LIKE ALL OF THE REST

I WILL DO WHAT I AM PROGRAMMED TO UNTIL I FALL APART

Ridd - only YOU could come up with this. A depressed computer - maybe you could start a support group? I always love hearing your music - always inventive, interesting, creative, and in this case, wildly ironic! Thanks!

nice tune
this reminds me of Glados and 'still alive' song from Portal. Except you're computer is truly not very happy :(
meanwhile the song is quite catchy and the guitar work is really well done.

Brilliantly original
Dark and dramatic but still bursting with melody. Your voice is perfectly poised between computer and human.

Love the subtle harmonies.

Spiraling
As the old machine ages it slides into obsolescence, this is definitely the song it sings. Well done.

Thanks

Dude!!!
This song is sick. The lyrics on this as well as the music itself has my heart racing. That drum brings out the jam.

nice
vignette.
It has a "Grandaddy" feel.I don´t know if you´re familiar with them but they touch topics of human vs. machine (a recurrent theme on your music).
