lyrics

I'm getting caught in mechanical actions
No satisfaction in them
Clicking and scrolling for gratification
It's always the same shit again

Chasing a dragon of mild amusement
What a way to use my time
Already read through these twenty-five reasons
I'm just that seasoned online

All I want
Stimulation to make me feel
Like a part of the world

I'm feeling cursed by what should be a blessing
Leisure is testing me
Constant stimuli have deadened my senses, and
At the expense of my sleep

Tried to resist the call of the clickbait
All of my restraint applied
But all the freedom to go where I felt left my
Mind with nowhere to hide

Almost
If I can just connect to my head
The animate machine's ghost
I'll have what I've been expecting to get

All I want
Stimulation to make me feel
Like a part of the world

I'm getting caught in mechanical actions
No satisfaction in them
Inside this pattern my lack of decision
Leads to repetition, and
Infinite choice is only an illusion
When you're still using the same
Hardwired machine to process the data
Never to have a new brain
Well, the condition will remain

Almost
If I can just connect to my head
The animate machine's ghost
I'll have what I've been expecting to get

All I want
Stimulation to make me feel
I'm not cut off inside myself
Trapped with only one way of looking out, no I'm not
I'm a part of the world

Feel like a part of the world

Hailing from both the Montreal and Ottawa music scenes, the live band combines a tower-of-power of electronic keyboards, with driving drums, blistering bass, and the melodic crunch of electric guitars.
