Liner Notes: 

Techno-resistant man has unexpected fun with computerized bass, drums and guitar.


I cut my knee on a neon sign
that said "Always be on time"
I was late cos it's always been my fate
to always be late
no matter what the day
or the date

I bought bait
though I don't fish
I bought a gate
though I don't own a home
I bought a state
though I'm not a country
I bought a plate
though I had nothing to fill my tummy

I ran among the tulips
and used my two lips
to kiss a light pole
the pole said "Whoa, it's a no go
for you because I'm already spoken
for by Con Edison"
so I took my medicine
and I declared myself innocent
though I was accused of no crime

I declared myself a genius but no one believed it
and I was relieved that no one had seen fit
to report me to the authorities
and all the girls in the sorority
said "you're a real rarity"
and kicked me out of the sorority

I bought a hat
though I had no head
I bought a bat
though I had no ball
I bought a cat
though I had no fish
I bought a rat
though I had no garbage

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

Some old school rap (or something). You can't escape your fate, which brought you to this song. I accept your genius, btw. I will say, that having garbage isn't really necessary when it comes to rat husbandry. This was fun, for sure! What did you do with that hat?

Good lyric, bit of a musical change here, pretty minimal. Really good song.

those artificial beats knocked out the echo and tighened up your vocals. the bass and lyrics give it a talking heads feel. it was fun but i prefer your more personalized arragements.
