Alex Summers I LOVE this album. It combines so many styles and does it in such a clever and musical way. The melodies are simultaneously simple yet memorable, and there is no lack of musical cleverness in song and chord structure..

And, I love the vocals in every
tune. They are sophisticated and always act to propel the tune forward. Everything I hear seems to have a purpose.

GREAT job by Bloo Burds. Favorite track: Destroy Yourself (ft. Easlern).

Track Name: Nanomites
[Chorus]
Do you feel the nanomites?
Is there something in your mind?
(Do you feel it, oh)
(Do you feel it now)
Your heart keeps beating
That’s how you get with the program
Serotonin rising
We kick it off like a slow jam
And is that ringing
Driving you insane?

[Verse 1]
We’re living in a post-personality world
Mass producing emotion
And you could be my post-morality girl
But do you get
Down with the upgrades
Down with the upgrades
Down with the upgrades
Do the upgrades get you down?

[Chorus]
Do you feel the nanomites?
Is there something in your mind?
(Do you feel it, oh)
(Do you feel it now)
Your heart keeps beating
That’s how you get with the program
Serotonin rising
We kick it off like a slow jam
And is that ringing
Driving you insane?

[Verse 2]
Baby, do you get enough stim-stim-stim-stimulation?
Baby, you’re my favourite simulation
And we’re just dreams, cancer for reality
But do you get
High off the download
High off the download
High off the download
Does the download get you high?

[Chorus]
Do you feel the nanomites?
Is there something in your mind?

Do you feel the nanomites?
Is there something in your mind?
(Do you feel it oh)
(Do you feel it now, now, now, now, now, now, now, now)
Track Name: Sweet Delusions
[Chorus]
'Cause when it gets too much, you gotta let me know
Emotions running high, can’t keep it on the low
And if you feel that rush, you gotta let it go
Lost in sweet delusions

[Verse 1]
Euphoria
Must be something in the atmosphere
And it was glorious
Ooh, and we were dancing on thin air

[Pre-chorus]
'Cause when your mind starts slipping and your head starts tripping
And your heart starts fluttering, stop
You start to wonder if you’re dreaming
And when your blood starts rushing and our souls start touching
And the love starts bubbling up
What’s real to you is real enough

[Chorus]
'Cause when it gets too much, you gotta let me know
Emotions running high, can’t keep it on the low
And if you feel that rush, you gotta let it go
Lost in sweet delusions

[Verse 2]
Phantasmagoria
A song that’s got no rhythm got no rhyme
And it’s notorious
Ooh, it gets us every time

[Pre-chorus]
'Cause when your mind starts slipping and your head starts tripping
And your heart starts fluttering, stop
You start to wonder if you’re dreaming
And when your blood starts rushing and our souls start touching
And the love starts bubbling up
What’s real to you is real enough

[Chorus]
'Cause when it gets too much, you gotta let me know
Emotions running high, can’t keep it on the low
And if you feel that rush, you gotta let it go
Lost in sweet delusions

[Bridge]
Why do we try to fight these delusions?
If it's in your head
It's more than an illusion

[Chorus x2]
'Cause when it gets too much, you gotta let me know
Emotions running high, can’t keep it on the low
And if you feel that rush, you gotta let it go
Lost in sweet delusions
Track Name: Automaton
[Verse 1]
(Rah-rah-rah ooh) You see them walking down the same old street
(Rah-rah-rah ooh) They’re even dancing to the disco beat
But I know something that’ll blow your mind
(Rah-rah-rah ooh) Their swagger's got you so impressed
(Rah-rah-rah ooh) And they could even pass the Turing test
But open up that shell and you will find
There’s nothing inside

[Chorus]
From the morning, to the evening, to the midnight
From a Monday, to the weekend, for their whole life
Automaton (just keep moving on)
Automaton (just keep moving on)
Automaton (just keep moving on)
Automaton (just keep moving on)

[Verse 2]
(Rah-rah-rah ooh) You try to reach ’em, but they got no soul
(Rah-rah-rah ooh) They don’t believe in rock and roll
But I know something that’ll blow your mind
(Rah-rah-rah ooh) Like animals up in the zoo
(Rah-rah-rah ooh) They eat and sleep and reproduce
But look into the mirror and you’ll see
They’re you and me

[Chorus]
From the morning, to the evening, to the midnight
From a Monday, to the weekend, for your whole life
Automaton (just keep moving on)
Automaton (just keep moving on)
Automaton (just keep moving on)
Automaton (just keep moving on)

[Bridge]
Close your eyes, what do you see?
Is your life stuck on repeat?

[Chorus x2]
From the morning, to the evening, to the midnight
From a Monday, to the weekend, for your whole life
Automaton (just keep moving on)
Automaton (just keep moving on)
Automaton (just keep moving on)
Automaton (just keep moving on)
Track Name: We Were Falling (December)
[Verse 1]
You were roundabout
I was down and out
We were inside out
But we didn't have a care
You were circumstance
I was take a chance
We were at first glance
We were setting suns

[Chorus]
We were falling
Faster than (with no direction)
We were falling
(Past the point of no return)

[Verse 2]
You were tried and true
I was black and blue
We were overdue
But we couldn't break the spell
You were all depends
I was odds and ends
We were more than friends

[Chorus x2]
We were falling
Faster than (with no direction)
We were falling
(Past the point of no return)
Track Name: Taking Off And Landing
[Verse 1]
The planet falls beneath your feet
The beams of light that shine around you
Filter through the dusty sheen of a cloud above the ocean
Wading through a thunderstorm
A shimmer in the haze confounds you
Slipping past the threshold of the transient horizon

[Verse 2]
Gliding through the cosmic sphere
Ego seems to disappear
When taking off and landing in the mist beyond the veil
Soaring at the speed of dreams
The echoes ripple deep within you
And though you fall, a fragment lingers there amongst the stars
Track Name: Wishing On A Love (ft. Katie J)
[Chorus - Katie J)
You were wishing on a love
That would fall out of the sky
Won’t you open up your arms?
Let me be your dream tonight

[Verse 1 - Bloo Burds]
What’s a wish to a dreamer?
What’s a love to a stone?
What’s a stone to a moonbeam?
You better leave it alone
When the seeds have been sown, and there ain’t no place
You can bleed on your own, so you make your chase
And you breathe and you gasp, and you’re trapped, no escape
But tell me how can you sleep when it’s cold?
When you needing a light for the road
Is believing a lie for the soul?
Is deceiving what’s right for the whole?
Tell me how could you know? Sometimes taking a chance
Means receiving a blow
And you ride with the high, but can’t deal with the low
If we're falling in sync we can meet on the floor
Or below, that's just how this thang go

[Chorus - Katie J)
You were wishing on a love
That would fall out of the sky
Won’t you open up your arms?
Let me be your dream tonight

[Verse 2 - Bloo Burds]
Have we been here before?
Is it déjà vu?
Do we come with a lock?
Open up and let the pain run through
Cause we tainted, we’ve fallen from grace, and let’s face it
You and I can’t survive in a stasis
If you don’t mind the pace, I can take you to the other side of the zone
(Tonight) So if I wish on love
(Tonight) And the wish came true
(Tonight) Could we be above?
(Tonight) Could we make it through?
(Tonight) Were you made for me?
(Tonight) Was I made for you?
(Tonight) Have we been here before, huh?
(Tonight) I guess it’s déjà vu

[Chorus - Katie J)
You were wishing on a love
That would fall out of the sky
Won’t you open up your arms?
Let me be your dream tonight

[Outro - Bloo Burds]
How can you sleep when it’s cold?
When you needing a light for the road
Is believing a lie for the soul?
Is deceiving what’s right for the whole?
Taking a chance means receiving a blow
And you ride with the high, but can’t deal with the low
If we're falling in sync we can meet on the floor
Or below, that's just how this thang go
Track Name: Offline
[Verse 1]
And he was dreaming of the real thing
While he sitting there staring at the ceiling
Images and videos to make him feel things
Chilling in a chat room on the weekend
He want a love like you see on the TV screen
How to get it?
Alone in a world where nobody see the virtue of a boy in love
How pathetic
And she was dreaming of the real thing
Popping pills so that she don’t gotta feel things
Feeling numb 'cause somebody made her feel things
Now she don’t know how to cope with all these feelings
But when she log on she can be someone else
About the only place she can leave from herself
And on a night when the stars aligned
They both logged on at half past nine
And they met online

[Verse 2]
What they have is little mixed blessing
Late night texting, and they romance over instant messaging
The slow dance begins, and when lights get dim
They escape from the daily stressing
They got connection that’s real
As the pain they feel, even though reality stay depressing
But when she gotta log off
It’s back to feeling off, gotta pop another anti-depressant
Now he don’t feel so alone
Cuz he knows when he’s home, he’s got something for his own
Even though the truth keep intervening
He’s craving her touch, but there’s an ocean that’s lying in between 'em
And she’s wishing for his hand to hold
Cause sometimes when she lets her mind roam she just gets so cold
He says I know I can’t be there by your side
But every night when it’s half past nine, we can meet online

[Verse 3]
She’s fading fast, she’s 'bout to crash
Pull off the scab, her soul gush out the gash
Alone in a world misunderstood
Prospects, they don’t look so good
And meanwhile he been daily on the grind
Push the pain out of his mind, 'cause he gotta get a ticket to ride
To leave his shallow life behind and make a dash
But first he gotta get this cash, he did the math
And thinking bout the future is what gets him through the present
Where he doesn’t have a presence and his past is omnipresent
Because she the only reason that he’s breathing still
They’ve gotta be together, he believes he will
And that night when her tears start to flow
He promises that she don’t gotta cry no more
Only a matter of time, and I’ma get myself a ticket to ride
And I’ma leave this life behind
And we can meet offline

[Verse 4]
Sometimes planes crash before they can take off
Sometimes hopes dash before they can pay off
It’s a travesty, the tragedy of living
Is that life’s unforgiving, and this was no different
Somebody made her feel things, left her with a burden
The pills numb her mind but her soul’s still hurting
He’s out of a job, and he’s falling apart, he’s afflicted
Alone and he’s getting evicted
When the weight gets too heavy to hold, we try to share
But the weight was too heavy to bear, so to spare themselves
They made a pact, a desperate act
A last-ditch tactic, and the way they planned it
Was to leap at the promised time
And it gave them the peace of mind
To know that they were finally gonna be united
Put the grief behind, and when the clock struck half past nine
They met offline

[Outro]
Well maybe we can’t board a plane
But we can get off this plane
I said we gotta take a leap of faith
If we ever wanna leave this place
And maybe we can't board a plane
But we can get off this plane
And we gotta take a leap of faith

(Instrumental)
Track Name: Destroy Yourself (ft. Easlern)
[Chorus - Easlern]
Destroy yourself
Don't let 'em take it all
Strike the match
Before they suck your soul

[Verse 1 - Bloo Burds]
Our generation is not a nation
The notion of conflating us with them’s an abomination
Inflation: the theory that everyone around me
Is full of hot air
We all sleepwalk, make no mistake
That’s why when you die they call it a wake
You work nine to five, so that you could buy the dreams that they sell
All the dreams that you buy gather dust on the shelf
What do terrorists and corporations have in common?
They both commit murder in the name of a profit
One spills blood, the other ambition
They both share a goal: that’s to beat us to submission
Will you listen? You wonder why we always lose
We avert our eyes; they watch our every move
Entertainment in a movie is disturbing in the news
We prefer the lie; so they cover up the truth

[Chorus - Easlern]
Destroy yourself
Don't let 'em take it all
Strike the match
Before they suck your soul

[Verse 2 - Bloo Burds]
We are not free; freedom is a concept
Meant to appease, as long as you believe that you’re free
You’re a slave to your own mind
We are not men, we are dronekind
We’re addicted to patterns, rinse and repeat
We’re addicted to patterns, rinse and repeat
We are taught that death is to be feared
It’s wrong to be weird
Melt into the crowd, let yourself disappear
What is rhyme? Rhyme is comfort
The antithesis to chaos, keeping time, that is rhythm
Constraints, melody, never go between the lines
Harmony, let’s pretend that we’re alike
Company, let’s pretend we’re not alone
Luxury, let’s pretend that they don’t own
Our identities, what is destiny?
Destiny is the religion of the enemy

[Chorus - Easlern x2]
Destroy yourself
Don't let 'em take it all
Strike the match
Before they suck your soul
Track Name: Apocalypse (Now Now Now) (ft. Miles Canady)
[Chorus - Bloo Burds]
At the end of days ain’t a damn thing changed
We keep trampling on our neighbours as we fall
With our backs up to the wall
Apocalypse (now now now)

[Verse 1 - Bloo Burds]
The revelation is this:
See the flash as your flesh turns to ash, and your blood turns to mist
There’s a hole in the sky, then you catch your reflection
And see that the hole’s in your mind
You’ve been fooled, we’re the waste product of
Being led to believe that the world’s not enough
So we turn to the dream, and you’ve got no mouth
But inside you’re just dying to scream

And the mushroom cloud’s gonna rain down acid
Airborn plague will infect the masses
Glaciers melt and the greenhouse gases
Erode our atmosphere
No one’s gonna stop the machine uprising
Extraterrestrials colonizing
The horsemen gather round
As it all comes crumbling down

[Chorus - Bloo Burds]
At the end of days ain’t a damn thing changed
We keep trampling on our neighbours as we fall
With our backs up to the wall
Apocalypse (now now now)

[Verse 2 - Bloo Burds]
The revelation is this: the earth starts to quake
And the ground starts to break, and we all plummet down the abyss
There’s a crack in the sky, then you catch your reflection
And see that the crack’s in your eye
You’ve been fooled, we’re the by-product of
Being led to believe that the answer is love
So we turn to the dream, and the dream pulls back
To reveal an apocalypse scene:

See the devils running 'round with their pitchforks, stabbing
Gouging out the eyes of an infant, drowning
Swimming in the blood of the virgins, choking
Clawing at their eyes while their bones are roasting
Watching all the kids get devoured by the locusts
Zombies eat your brain while it’s in psychosis
Brothers and sisters in the flame
You start to salivate

[Chorus - Bloo Burds]
At the end of days ain’t a damn thing changed
We keep trampling on our neighbours as we fall
With our backs up to the wall
Apocalypse (now now now)

[Bridge - Miles Canady]
Gather 'round with our heads bowed
As we try to ignore the clouds
It's our last second breathing
I pull you close and breathe in

I feel it coming, it's my last second breathing
So I pull you closer and I breathe in
I feel it coming, it's my last second breathing
So I pull you closer and I breathe in
The end

[Outro - Bloo Burds]
Don’t let them, don’t let them
Don’t let them take your soul
