Lyrics: 

I was slightly startled
a little unnerved
I asked for nothing
but I got what I deserved
yeah, I had it coming

I was a broken robot
I was a delayed train
you knocked me over
and said start again

I was a hopeless failure
I was a little forlorn
but with your assistance
I could be reborn



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Really enjoyed this....it has a grungy electropop feel that's reallyworking for me!

Cool pop number. Yes - I suppose this could be interpreted in so may ways, but to me it sounds like an 80s throwback (a la Friday Night Videos). I like it...a lot!

Love love love this. Those harmonies in the chorus are terrific, and the lyrics are fantastic. Great all around. I just downloaded.

I love the contrast between jangly and fuzzy guitars and the trippy synths. This is a little pop gem.

This is a little Beck esque. The distorted synths create a really interesting texture for your fuzzy leads and telephone-type vocal. This is really unique sonically and it still has a really nice groove to it. Great song!

If I had done this I would have slapped a star next to it and taken the week off. It's just perfect, I think. The fuzzy bass, the drums, the cool vocals, the guitar, washy synths--all of it is great. The lyric is the best part, though. I'm not sure what it means, but it feels so sad and so true. I mean, I ask for nothing...and I have it coming.

Recently I was walking in a cemetery near my house and I saw a gravestone with this inscription: I told you this would happen. I thought that might be the best epitaph in the history of the world--and it also sounded like the title of a VV song

Love the fuzziness of this, the big synth bass is great. Telephone vocal on the verses works really well too. Really like this, short and sweet.

Very cool sound. Nice vocal effects in the 'broken robot' verse.

Great sound, that guitar is right in my face.

Asked for nothing/got what I deserved -- perfect line there.

I like the radio voice for the second verse.

This is kind of a dystopian love song, huh?

That bass line was nice, really dirty and in your face. Great lyrics as always.

Big fan of that delayed second snare. Getting real MGMT vibes from this, but that's only 'cause you used a big square bass synth I suppose. The vocals seem be a little overpowering, dipping the volume of the rest of the track, but that actually kinda works as an effect, intentional or not!

good punchy song - some really neat lines and overall sounds great. enigmatic lyrics too.

The vocals on this are awesome with the harmonies in the main bit and the distorted section where it all goes a bit *band I cant remember the name of*. So catchy. I likes.
