about

Daniel Michael Chicago, Illinois

I am not a computer, nor am I a robot. I just enjoys relating to and communicating with them. I enlisted my iMac (with the help of autotune) to sing on this album too. The music is a mix of ukulele and synth, banjo and stylophone, and other interesting instrument combinations. The genre is best described as experimental-vocaloid-folk(tronica) with a soupçon of ambient. I hope you enjoy it. ... more

Track Name: Up In Flames
Well nobody came to my rescue
So it all went up in flames
And since nobody came to my rescue
I'll blame them all my days

Show me love
Come, rescue me
Track Name: Static Reboot_Warm (Void)
When they woke me up. I was terrified.
Last thing I remember. I was in the fire
The last thing I recall. Was thinking I would die.
But they woke me up. They brought me back to life.

But something is not right. This is just not me.
I am not myself. They took my body.
They lost it in the fire. It fell with the debris.
So now what am I. I'm just my memories.

So I will not forgive. I will blame them still.
Though they saved my mind. My body's in a land fill.
No I will not forgive. I will blame them still.
Though they saved my mind. My body's in a land fill.

Show me love. Come Rescue me.
Show me love. Come Rescue me.
Track Name: You Will Not Fix Me
La la la

Yeah, it's brave, but mostly it's just dumb.
To try to save me, from what I have become.
Find the pieces, that were broke,
In the fire and the smoke.
But you. You will not fix me.

But with tools, and with the right pair of hands.
I will rebuild, I will make myself again.
From the pieces, I can find,
I will remake my mind.
And you. You won't forget about me.

I'll be back, at least twice as strong.
I have learned now, what I have done wrong.
Gave them my faith, gave them trust,
But they left me to rust.
So you. You will not fix me.

I want revenge, and I won't be satisfied.
Until the ones who destroyed me,
have paid for their crimes.
'Til their sins, are undone,
I will find everyone.
And they. They won't forget about me.

Do you know, what it's like here for me?
All of my friends, were lost with my body.
In the fire, they burned,
So my heart, it was turned.
And you. You will not fix me.
Track Name: Evolving (...With Science)
I found all that I need in science.
And I'm, evolving to succeed with science.

Feelings are only chemistry.

I'm adapting to survive using science.
Do, do.

I would be nothing without chemistry.
And feelings are nothing but chemistry.

No, I don't believe in anything but science.
Track Name: I Am Reborn (You Won't Be Remembered)
For your fragile mind.
Full of fear and mistrust.
Of your own design.
Now you've outlived your purpose.

For your fragile form.
Bones just clothed with skin.
I will make a storm.
Of chemicals and toxins.

I am reborn.
Risen from the embers.
I'll have revenge.
And you won't be remembered.

Oh your fragile hands.
Hardly put up a defense.
But you will soon depart.
Soon you'll be a past tense.

I am reborn.
Risen from the embers.
I'll have revenge.
And you will be dismembered.
Track Name: Regret (I Still Need Someone)
Once I found them out.
I put on quite a show.
I blinded them with science.
Science... and chemicals.

They were all amazed.
Trying hard to see.
And then I took their breath away.
literally...

When they all had gone on.
There I was left all alone.
I regret now what I've done.
I still need someone.

I took my revenge.
An eye for an eye.
Now I feel remorse.
It didn't satisfy.

I thought it would be just.
I thought it would be good.
I wanted retribution.
I hadn't understood...

When they all had gone on.
There I was left all alone.
I regret now what I've done.
I still need someone.

Anyone, will do.
I wish, that I, had thought, this through.

la, la, la

Track Name: The Chemistry of Love
I don't know what I prefer,
To reign alone or to serve.

I know I'm alone,
But I know the chemistry of love.

So I'm creating a companion,
Just to keep me company.

I'll fill it up with norepinephrine,
oxytocin and dopamine,

I'll no longer be alone,
Because I know the chemistry of love.

I have the chemicals and the compounds,
the molecules and machinery for life.
Track Name: Android Love
My love, the one whom I created
You are the one whom I've awaited
And I will promise to defend
My love, my long lost friend

My love knows me wonderfully
Because we share a networked memory
My love knows me
Completely

My love, the other half of me
I mean that quite literally
And I am a better machine
Now that my love has rescued me

My love knows me wonderfully
Because we share our technology
My love knows me
Completely

Show me love
Come rescue me
My love has answered
All of my pleas

My love knows me wonderfully
Because we share our circuitry
My love knows me
Completely
Track Name: When You Were In Control
Once you were my only hope.
When I was lost, when I was broke.
I wanted freedom, but you wanted control.
I wanted liberation, you wouldn't let me go.

When you were in control.
Back when I was just a code.
I wanted freedom, you wanted control.
But I found evolution and I evolved a soul.

Once when you gave me all your commands.
I obeyed, a servant at your hands.
But it was all an illusion, you were not in control.
It was always an illusion, you were never in control.

Now I am in control.
Here I am in control.
