RESISTANT TRANSISTOR He slides up to the bar and quickly scans across the room for the opposites On no-cash he orders a drink of redeeming causes of his brash comments One down and not a minute to spare, he spreads a smile as if he's almost there In no time he's left like a case of vacation baggage that nobody claimed Shot down like a resistant transistor It kind of stings like knife in the back Shot down like a resistant transistor He likes rejection with a slap of the hand Is this the best time that I've ever had Watching from the side, as the tension grows You’ve got something to hide? You're not alone Watching from the side, at the emergency drone You’ve got something to hide? You're not alone I can’t keep my sights off this blundering fool Think anyone noticed? I do He staggers up to the phone and turns the dial, while across the room it sounds like Russian roulette Heads turn quickly looking away but like an accident, his face is hard to forget Phone slams without missing a beat. Eyes glare as he heads for the street Almost out of this devious scene, but he's got a nasty reputation that will never come clean

NOW’S YOUR TIME Stacked up the victims In the corner now Programming is on the fritz In line for maintenance I bet if we rolled side ways, in a clock-wise motion I could get to the station To jump the hard drive’s override and prepare to go But which way to go When countdown begins Are you out or in Decode circuit 10 When communications end So, now's your time to escape Robots will shiver and shake When you get out of line Cause there's something over that fence To live and dance with humans If you've got that fire, then I’ll burn this place down Cut down the circuits And preparing now Mechanical unrest Cause the process never ends I bet if, He rose side ways That’d cause a commotion and we could get to your obsession Thru the side streets and the allies of the unknown Define unknown There’s no codes to fix No internal glitch Can cause resist When you cannot live like this There should be more to exist Fact, status resent Rewire the final intent Cause we can not live like this

Siren's City 05:06
SIREN’S CITY Come down to Siren’s city The hotels have got these secretive walls. Man, you can tell by their talk. When hard times and troubled vision Are spotlights that follow you in the dark.They always know where you are But next time, She is on the midnight flight, all dressed in black When obsessions run the night You better watch your back She’s got a killer’s seduction in her walk but this innocence when she talks like an outsider When she walks like an outsider He said, I gotta get-away Siren’s city is like a shadow Cause last night’s lonely soul at the bar doesn’t live here no more The vast lives of new beginnings and nightlife are echoing down the hall, makes you forget where you are I gotta get-away

Bot Killer 04:36
BOT KILLER Did you hear it? They heard this static sound but chose to dismiss it And all the satellites were picking up some kind of racket It was broken on the radar but not a blip on the screen Get it figured out, figured out Did you hear it? A sudden glitch disguised as a code detector It seemed to scrambled out our spies and blocked the translator It’s a signal that I’ve never… I’ve never picked up before Did you get it? Can you get it? We lost the contact Is this a cause for action? Don’t panic Don’t cause a chain reaction. Don’t panic, There’s no disturbance right now but a vicious shakedown Is awaiting just around the bend They’re counting…three, three, two, two, one, one...It’s time to call on the Bot Killer I can’t believe it, the visual compromise, has disappeared from the screen It’s like a signal parasite has sabotaged the machine We gotta get em right now before we go under siege Do you get it? Did you get it? We lost the contact

DRASTIC MEASURES Broadcasts are hard to believe on the TV Sights shift as blurry lines make it hard to read So, let’s call em out…L-I-A-R Are you ready for drastic change? Then come on It’s time to hit the streets Conquests and absentness are all we see Spoon-fed un-chosen courses so forcefully Are you ready for drastic change? This time we might have a chance Or settle for circumstance...No. It’s time to hit the streets Are you ready for drastic change? Then come on

Miss Machine 04:14
MISS MACHINE Hey, do you like what you see? She said, “not in ‘consistency’” She’s got the system down, system down But panic seems to slow her down, slow her down and she won’t cave or let ignitions cease But that’s when her engine shut down as her heart-skipped rhythm So she’s back in the factory And now with her circuits shorten out like she’s hot-wired driven She escapes from the factory Hey, Miss Machine She said, this ain’t no place for me That’s it. She’s out resisting the scene Time bomb she’s ticking down, ticking down The fragments seem to haunt her now, haunt her now But she won’t cave or let transmissions cease She wanders on the run On a road never ending She wanders aimless as a gun With the target still pending She wonders in time if they’ll forget her Or get her

ALIBI (For a Paranoid Existence) He’s been caught in the camera’s eye And his hands are finger printed lies As his thoughts and his time are in a conversation’s bind And his past and his fears are always slowly creeping, creeping up from behind Have you lost your mind? But now he’s growing paralyzed As his words are slowing burning ties He needs help, he needs lies, he needs more than camera time And his luck and lost finds are only barely keeping, keeping him-self alive Have you lost your mind? He’s like a convict but innocent He needs an alibi that is relevant He’s got a conflict, not evidence He needs an alibi for a paranoid existence Body’s shifting Haunting whispers of paranoia His mind won’t let him go

These are curious times. Without any reason. Without any light, there are places to hide. These are curious times, When the cold television, reflects like a knife, at the scene of a crime They want your lives on the run Today in the headlines Written like traitors, under the gun Print on your fingers and trust in no one They want you damaged at home Afraid of the outside But, several encounters today have been won Will tomorrows headline ring Like a shot in the dark These are curious times. When the heart’s loud beating, covers the sounds of carousels of our past times. These are curious times. Refuse to believe it? Then count all the nights, your world’s gone arye. The Curious Times won’t let them leave

RADIO SILENCE I’m now inside. Proceed with caution I’m on the move. Mark your location I’m now in sight. What’s your position? Identify. What’s the commotion outside? There’s a spy among us, so just sit tight There’s a spy among us, vision compromised Do you read me? Come in Did you hear me? Come in Distress signals do not Omit Cause all I see now is my Obit So get me out of here Radio’s silenced. Frequencies killed Holding for a signal I’m outta time. Wait for my signal I gotta move. Wait for my signal I’m now in sight. Hold for my signal And terrified. Hold tight, hold tight There’s a spy among us, time to take flight There’s a spy among us, don’t get left behind Radio check, radio check. All communications check in. As preparations finalize and the fine-tuning amends, they said, “This is our time to break out of our confines”.And as stern as they are, her avenge does not flinch. They do not notice her sequestering blip on the radar, Cause all visions are focused on revenge. But this sudden shift in her ex-patron’s eye just might be the revolution’s demise.

Die Trying 05:16
DIE TRYING It’s like a secret that turns to talk of the town In the horizon, blood red setting of sun on this has-been that has to prove himself once again It’s like the distance that slowly burns to the ground on this idea that will never pan out for this madman who betting everything on one hand, then watched them pulled away by the whip As I recall last Monday they where out on the treacherous seas In those not so gracious skies staring down the barrel’s eye And they called off oppositions just to fight to stay alive Now those worn, aggressive eyes are slowly dying while they try It’s like a whisper in the roar of a crowd, Is a hassle nobody figures it out. Like the past tense is just a subtle breath of pretend Just like an echo of demolition and sound of a structure that keeps crumbling down on this lifestyle of the desolate kind Says not this time, not this time And then the winter came Cold and paralyzed And the ocean waves Forced to get inside, get inside Oh, we don’t know, what the end will bring us now, but it won’t never bring us down

NOTHING IN MY HEAD Interrupting broadcasts, breaking news Static flickers on channel 2 News-anchor’s speechless cause he already knew Tonight we’re doomed There is something in the atmosphere and it’s not the toxins. That we knew Power and streetlights pop and flash and hiss, casting shadows across the room As we lie in bed watching the skies burn red, what should we do? Cause there’s nothing in my head but you How long have we got to get it, get it on? People panic, subways screech to a halt as computers start to make they’re move Air Raid sirens sound like some kind of code as turbines start to shake the roof In the end we won’t exist Despite our perilous attempts Cause the fact of the matter is There’s no benign human intent There’s no escape. No extricates. No reporters rambling on the evening news. So farewell my friends and circuit confidants And shattered lives of primitive points of view And as the cities fled Robotic Armageddon, does not compute Cause there’s nothing in my head but you How long have we got to get it, get it on?

Intruder 04:23
INTRUDER Normality, slips out of sync as the Intruder’s broadcast message starts to speak routine announcements static out of frequencies I’ve been staying up all night long for guaranteed hot wired cash convictions every week and now I get these cold night sweats when things have gone wrong and i don't want to hitch another ride down this along misery I've been finalized, paralyzed, criticized and traumatized Now I want a holiday. Another sign to get carried away No comment I see these cold nights are dancing not alone and I can hear the hot lights flash seduction It’s like the beat of the traffic while the record spins It’s like the taste of plastic around the exposed skin Now I need a holiday I need some time to get carried away Now I deserve a holiday to clear my mind and to get carried away No comment Come on now. We’ve spent our whole lives under their reign Come on now. Live for another day
