VV: I threw my song 'Equestrian Superstore' open to collaboration and @lanasolyluna came back with these great vocals that totally fit in with the creepy lo-fi synth atmosphere, I love it!
I heard this track and immediately got an image of a robot protagonist. I basically did this in 2 takes and without writing anything down. I first just did some humming, howling, whatever. Then I sang whatever lyrics came out on top of that. Was sort of an image of a robot who became more human than her creators expected her to be—not unlike Frankenstein’s monster—but then denied her any compassion. What now?
They put me together
To measure the weather
They didn’t expect
My feelings’d connect
What will become of me?
What will they do to me?
I’ve left all I had
Wires, bones, my soul
What will become of technology?
We’re smarter than our creators
They’ve become our biggest haters
We were supposed to be be their saviors
Now it’s all gone..
What’s left of me?
Are these my thoughts, are these their thoughts?
I feel I’m bought
I used to be a precious thing
Now I just don’t care
Is there a switch you can press?
That’ll make me forget?
Is there still a box?
You can stuff me in and break the locks?
