about

This song was written in about an afternoon. I was living in the basement room at a shop apartment on Symonds St. I woke up that day, had some breakfast and went to work in my room from midday. I came out of the room around 5pm to my flatmates outside. I had made a simple pop song. I was happy. It was a pop song.

This song is about doing something but feeling that fundamentally everything is just a fake, just a play... just a pose.

lyrics

The gods have gone too far my hand doesn't operate the way I want to any more.

My friend this is a conspiracy I thought you said you knew how, that you we're in control.

People sleep and they drool, got to do nothing the most be the slob of them all.

Get up late and start the day with a cup to consolidate my waste this is a man made joke.

The synthesis has gone to far my decadent life drags beside me on the ground.

Cacophony of 16bit lies wasting and wanting in my existential pose.

Gee kid your really a machine take a leap and accept to the extreme as we...

... roll to the ground!
(My existential pose!)
