The Robot's Guide to Music Volume 1 Lyrics

TOOLS OF WAR

Another strike

Happened overnight

One hundred lives

Of children who were born to die

Do you read the paper in a suit and tie?

Pissing your espresso while your wifi dies

Feeding T.V. frenzy and the robot lies

Tweeting in a panic while Aleppo cries

We have lost the plot and don’t know who is who

Yesterday our neighbors bombed our children’s schools

        Now the Tools of War are ready

        Hold your breath

        Under Rubble

        I found your mom

        But you don’t want to look that way my son

        You do what you can and watch the world glitch by

        Hacking humble charity the press comply

        Fleeing from the government and ISIS ties

        There is nothing left that we can leave behind

        We have lost the codes and all the passwords too

        Yesterday my son was on your cellphone’s news

         Now the Tools of War are ready

 2. THE NARCISSIST

    You said you’ve never been there before

    So I took you to the lake

    To find a reason and nothing more

    To find a reason to stay

 See it was simple we were lovers in the flowers

 All the bluebirds sang us kind words in their songs

And as we whiled away the hours in the flowers

I could see it in your eyes there’s something wrong

When you start leaning, you start leaning

Leaning a little closer

You tried kissing, you tried kissing

Your reflection

And then I tried to call out your name

But you weren't listening

You caught a glimpse of something strange

That’s something isn’t it

  See it was simple we were lovers in the flowers

    All the bluebirds sang us kind words in their songs

    And as we whiled away the hours in the flowers

I could see it in your eyes there’s something wrong

When you start leaning, you start leaning

Leaning a little closer

You tried kissing, you tried kissing

Your reflection

You don’t mean it, you don’t mean it

It isn’t true

Cause I’ve seen it, I’ve seen it

3. Wedding Dress

    I’m not sure anymore

    Mama don’t like my wedding dress

    She tried to take it back

    I’d rather get married dressed in black

   But you love me

    Jason I love you dearly

    Hold me closer

    It’s not the same, it’s always the same

    I know, I know

    I know that you love me

    We moved out

    And Daddy, he moved next door

    And we danced

    On the Chaparral concrete floor

   She’s got my back

    Like every time you’ve been there before

    Don’t lose track

    We’ve never lost, cause losing’s a bore

  I know, I know

    I know that you love me

    I know, I know

    I know that you love me

4. Garden of the Lord

We’ve got lots of surprises in store for you

Everyone’s welcome to try

Don’t break the rules

You’ll be very sorry if you do

 Everybody’s happy in the garden of the lord

Everybody’s happy and we try to stay ignored

It’s what we do

Waking up the babies in the park

 Everybody’s happy in the garden of the lord

Everybody’s welcome and you’re welcome to stay bored

It’s what we do

Playing the piano in the dark

 Singing

LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA

LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA

LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA

LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA

 5. CLONE BABY

    I don’t want no clone

    I don’t want no shadow me

    I don’t want no clone baby

       Hoping that I’m wrong

    I am not the enemy

    I don’t want you to see

     I hear the clock is ticking fast

    Feel your heart is breaking down

    I will not fall into your trap Alright?

    D.N.A. is calling out Alright!

    He’s got my eyes he’s got my smile

    Test tube honey happy child

    Growing slowly in denial

    Feeding from my woman’s life

     I don’t want no clone

    I don’t want no shadow me

    I don’t want no clone baby

    Hoping that I’m wrong

    I am not the enemy

    I don’t want you to see me

 6. I’m With You

I spent hours getting ready

For our night in the city

I came to your door in the pouring rain

And you let me in

Did I ever tell you I started to love you then?

In the light of the cafe

I spend hours watching you play

I’ll be there whenever you need me

And miss you when you’re away

I will be here for you everyday

And everywhere we go

If anyone wants to know

They will know

I’m with you, I’m with you, I’m with you, I’m with you

I’m with you, I’m with you, I’m with you, I’m with you

As we drove down the coastline

To my home in the sunshine

I remember the way you laughed at my broken glass of wine

I smile for all the perfect ways

We spend our time

And everywhere we go

If anyone wants to know

They will know

I’m with you, I’m with you, I’m with you, I’m with you

I’m with you, I’m with you, I’m with you, I’m with you

My love

I’m With you

I know, I know

I’m with you

So when you ask me to

Spend my life with you

I’ll say I do

Cause

I’m with you, I’m with you, I’m with you, I’m with you

I’m with you, I’m with you, I’m with you, I’m with you

 7. Dime in my Pocket

I love you my little

Dime in my Pocket

My shiny locket

With a picture hidden deep inside it

I love you my little red plaid umbrella

I don’t ever want to miss you

Now that you are here with me

 

I skipped some words

Standing right there beside you and I

Tried to rewrite them

But your shining eyes distracted me

I love you my little

Semi-goth princess

Put your head on my shoulder and just be here with me

 I love you so that’s how we roll

You know I give you all my

Don’t you don’t dontcha don’t know

I give you all of me

Don’t you don’t dontcha don’t know

The love of Reil’ and Razzy

 Writing home I hear you’re under the weather

Do you need a fellow to smoke a cigarette here beside you?

I love you my little Dime in my Pocket

I don’t ever wanna miss you now that you are here with me

 I love you so that’s how we roll

You know I give you all my

Don’t you don’t dontcha don’t know

I give you all of me

Don’t you don’t dontcha don’t know

The love of Reil’ and Razzy

 

8.Son of Fire

Son of fire, in the sky

We’re heading home

Your mommy’s tired, so am I

From this weary road

 And there are days I wish I stayed close to you

And there are nights that there was fire

That’s vanished in the coals

 I didn't mean to hurt you again

I didn’t mean to hurt you my friend

 Dweller son on the mountain

Where do I stand?

Heaven shines every night

Guided by your hands

 And there are days that I can’t shake

The feeling we are lost

And there are nights when I can’t find Orion

 I  didn't mean to hurt you again

I didn’t mean to hurt you my friend

 I didn't mean to hurt you again

I didn’t mean to hurt you my friend

 

9. Better Days

I wish that I could paint the moon

Flying away it feels we left too soon

Some ships came creeping up behind

Too late to ever change our minds

 No cigarettes were left on Mars

But I’ve got a spare

If you could use one

I know it hurts to fly so far

But, you’re not the only one

You’re not the only one to leave

We’re searching for some better days

I’m pretty sure that we could use them

For now we’ll float right out to space

Though, it may take many years

I know you’ll find your way

 

10. Become the Sky

She sailed away on her sailer's ship

She sank away on her weightless trip

She arrived one day to the promised land

Where she learned to swim within the sand

 Look around, Look around

You say you wish to fly

Just become the sky

Look around, Look around

Do you expect to know?

When you don't even try, even try

Nobody even tries

 She spoke her words that rang clear and true

Into open ears, ideas that never grew

Learn to be like me and live an endless dream

Where what you want can be reality

 Look around, Look around

You say you wish to fly

Just become the sky

Look around, Look around

Do you expect to know?

When you don't even try, even try

Nobody even tries

Live a lie, die a lie

Why don't you understand?

Understand, understand

Why don't you understand?

Understand, understand

Why don't you understand?

 

11. Fatherless Children

If I don’t leave L.A.

They’ll get me

I might as well be dead

I put my trust in you

To help me out

But I can’t wait for you

To Change the ways

You deal with Pain

I’ll try my luck another day

And it’s strange we don’t talk

We relate or so I thought

And the dreams of you don’t feel quite right

I don’t want to fight tonight

Feel the crumbling star shine bright,Hold him

Will you please pick up the telephone

I don’t want to be alone

Darling send him all my love

 Fatherless Children

Have a hard time

When their daddies are gone

They get lonely

And my boy doesn't know of the wars

We must fight

In our minds

We’re as sick as the secrets we hide

 

If I don’t leave L.A.

They’ll get me

I might as well be dead
