about

In the search for meaning that defines human life, nothing is more terrifying than actually finding what you’re looking for.

The ROBO SAGA EP presents this haunting truth in ten songs about a young man and his favorite band, and the apocalyptic consequences of his fanaticism. It’s a shame that we hold so tight to those things which set us free, isn’t it?

Track Name: Prelude / down low
the pain is square between my ears
it stares me in the face
was hit by a speeding car
yet i don’t see a trace

i healed up just fine in bed
they screwed my parts back on
but lost something along the way
the sound of silence gone

this tone, this tone
this tone, this tone
it’s all inside my head
this tone, i’m in
a real dark place
they’re wishing i was dead

i can’t keep track of anything
it’s all i fucking know
i’ve been watching days of our lives
with the volume down low

this tone, this tone
this tone, this tone
it’s all inside my head
this tone, i’m in
a real dark place
they’re wishing i was dead
Track Name: ticking telling
i’ve been sucked dry i’ve been erased
i’ve been turned inside out
this thing inside my skull has made it
hard to fucking count

i can’t tell who i can’t tell where
i can’t tell what i am
i certainly don’t have a clue
if i’ll smile again

it’s like they took my beating heart
replaced it with a bomb
now as i sit it ticks away
and i just want my mom
Track Name: split ends
it feels like there are two of me
one and one and one make three
but which one’s real and what’s it for
can’t look in mirrors anymore

home is a prison and a womb
i can’t stay here it is my tomb
but if i leave i might get dead
i’ll just pull my hair out instead
Track Name: alive again
i found this band
they really rock
they get me
i get them
the music is
a gift to me
i feel alive again

it’s been so long
since i have felt
that piece of my
broke head
their noise tapped right into my brain
it seems
i’ve made a friend

that piece is back
i can’t complain
that peace is back
no sad refrain
that piece is back
i feel alive again

it’s like a high
i’ve never felt
except for those
few times
i skipped out on
my medicine
and took flight
in my mind

that piece is back
i can’t complain
that peace is back
no sad refrain
that piece is back
i feel alive again

my new best friend
is there for me
whenever i need him
i just press play
and there he is
crawling through
my skin
Track Name: thanks too
i feel so full i’m one whole piece
and i’m free from the pain
it’s all thanks to my new best friend
his songs have made me sane

division and distraction have subsided and i see
my vision’s clear, there’s one true path
i’ll play and drive and be
it’s worth the struggle now because
i control my goddamn brain
it’s time i showed those fuckers that
i’m not fucking deranged

thanks to my friend
he is the best
we’re gonna rule the world
we’re gonna get
just what we want
meet all sorts of nice girls
Track Name: I miss you
i miss my bud i haven’t seen
my pal in oh so long
he hasn’t returned my response
i wonder what’s gone wrong

my head aches worse and worse each day
i do not hear from him
the minutes pass and my brain splits
at best my 'tude is grim

and i miss you
and i want you there with me
and i’d kiss you
if you’d just tell me i’m cool
yeah i miss you

it’s kinda funny to admit
i know that we just met
but jesus christ i can’t help it
i know you know me best

yeah i miss you

where did you go where have you been
i’ve got so much to tell
i’m stranded out in my own skull
it’s putting me through hell

and i miss you
and i want you to be free
but i miss you
and i want you to be me
i miss me
Track Name: WTF
WHAT THE FUCK
HOLY SHIT
MOTHER FUCKER
WHERE YOU BEEN
THIS IS FUCKED
BULL SHIT
FUCK YOURSELF
HATE ME
FUCKING WRECKED
SHIT FOR BRAINS
GRAND FUCKING CANYON HEAD
SEW IT UP YOU FUCK
NOT HERE TO HEAR YOUR SHIT
OUT OF MY GODDAMN WAY
LET ME THROUGH
Track Name: caught up
nevermind
you had it right
you’re always
so smart
i get so
caught up sometimes
i get so
torn apart
but
those little things
you do to me
they all mean
so so much
i guess now
more than ever
i just
miss
your touch
Track Name: I wish / I'm not / I'm still
i’m spitting blood i’m locked in bed
i went too far i cracked i’m scarred
it’s not fear i’m self-aware
i wish i didn’t fucking care

i’m not dead at least i said
i paid the price your call was nice
i crashed the van i killed a man
i’m still your biggest fucking fan
