The Robots Can Make Rocknroll

by The Ugly Facade



From the office of The Ugly Facade:
Feeling obsolete? Have the algorithms got you down? This tune is for that angst you feel, when it seems like even the robots can make rock and roll. Grinding, biting, yelling and screaming, yet bound to succumb and be overrun by the machines! It's a time when the speed of progress is outpacing our grace to deal with it. When art can be made by machine. When paradigms are shifting dramatically at a breakneck pace. It's about the romancing of some imagined bygone hedonism, the reckoning of accountability, and the fear of being unmade by progress.

running scared
in a world that’s theirs
whistling in the dark
screaming flesh not fair

singing hey
why can’t it wait
just a semblance of
just a human touch
just to write us off
hurts the heart too much

and I wish I could sell my soul
but the robots can make rock n roll

all my heroes are rapists
who won’t pay reparations
and my healers are fakists
and the path to their faith just
costs six easy payments
and if you act right away
they can throw in a savior
you can kill them today

well I can’t afford shit
and I would sell my soul
but the robots can make rock n roll
but the robots can make rock n roll

I am broke as shit
I would sell my soul
but the robots can make rock and roll
the robots have taken control
and were better off under control

i need a bath
need to wash the stink of human off

We live our lives in boxes, with little glowing screens. We fill our blood with toxins, so we can deal with things. And sometimes, more than often, the bitter masks the taste. The fruitless failed reflection: what if it's all a waste?
