Liner Notes: 

Klaus says: Collab with @igg. He had these lyrics and I had these musics. Never done this kind of dance music so it's a new thing for me. And prolly the most current genre I've done so far. Soon I have to include the 90s to my influence list. Smile

I want to thank igg. I really liked his lyrics and they have matching verses. It still took me over a week to do this because my work started last week.

Lyrics: 

ARTHUR

V1:
He's like a spider
He waits suspended
His black eyes staring at the screen
And, all the data
Theta and Beta
Streams from the circuits feeding in

V2:
His brain is wired
He's never tired
No detail ever seems too small
It's calibrated
Compiled and dated
He wants to classify it all

Chorus:
But where is Arthur hiding
There is no reply
Just a brain on overdrive
But where is Arthur hiding
There is no reply

Such a sad way
such a sad way
such a sad way... to die

V3:
His mouse is clicking
He follows breadcrumbs
He never knows where they will lead
He's saturated
And fascinated
His mind delighted with the speed

V4:
He sees the answers
He knows the questions
As signals flash across his screen
He zips and sorts them
Never distorts them
And briefly wonders what they mean

Chorus:
But where is Arthur hiding
There is no reply
Just a brain on overdrive
But where is Arthur hiding
There is no reply

Such a sad way
such a sad way
such a sad way... to die

Bridge:
Sparkling.. in ..his ..web ..of ..wonders
All the world seems real
Living....... in ...synthetic....spaces
He's forgotten how to feel...feel

Chorus:
But where is Arthur hiding
There is no reply
Just a brain on overdrive
But where is Arthur hiding
There is no reply

Such a sad way
such a sad way
such a sad way... to die

Oooh this is good! This super music and lyrics are amazing and with your vocals too-top of the game you two!

Fantastic dance groove with wonderful vocals. Such a great metaphor and hook! the chorus is so addictive!

Super catchy music and melody! A dystopian feel to the lyric with a robot gone rogue. Great collab!

Welcome to the 90s Smile Really like igg's lyrics and your pop-dance synth-driven production gives an appropriate setting to Arthur's tech driven tale. You've pulled out a few very cool sounds to put this together and I enjoyed the spot effects on the vocals at various points in the song.

You do so many styles with ease ... this sounds like it came right out of 1983 ... really catchy verses and sweet choruses. Lyrics are very well crafted ... "calibrated, compiled and dated" and other nice bits of wordplay. Synthy solo is great! Love the computer's-gone-out-of-control ending.

Cool song, nice verses and catchy chorus.
The sounds maybe belongs more in the 90's, but the song makes me think more of 80's synthpop actually, not a bad thing in my book. I really like igg's lyrics, I had considered making something with them myself, but not inspired enough to really write anything these days.

Head bobbing, foot tapping good time. I like the 80's synth pop style, and the crafty lyrics!

Wow! Cool song. Awesome lyrics, igg. Music reminds me of my college days, back when MTV first began. I spent hours watching music videos on the big screen in the Student Center at LA Tech. Your voice sounds great, Klaus!

I sure like your interpretation of these interesting lyrics which have a 'Who'-feel to me. You make Arthur sound like someone to feel sorry for in your own distinct voice. Lots of danceable, catchy pop too!
