This is inspired from Pinocchio - "I just want to be a real boy" (but in a modern setting)

(Even though I shouldnt) I feel love
(c) 2017 Andrew Richardson

Everything inside is scanned, MRI'd and measured
All the things I've feared and all the things I've treasured
Byte by byte my memory's been analyzed and checked
Edited and debugged to eliminate defects

And when the wind blows through the long grass
Under pylons
CURRENTS pulsing from the wires above
There inside a she's in a tiny corner
And even though I shouldnt I feel love

I'm told that I'm not human - I'm a bio-robot slave
I have no heart to offer and I have no soul to save
I know they can re- program me, and they would if they knew
But I know theres more to me than all I think or do


v3 /
She's in our master's garden as I work these fields all day
Her knowledge of me gone now since they wiped those thoughts away
A fire that could consume me or a beacon on a hill
Tiny sparks of human dreams I never will fulfill

fabkebab, I really like this one up until that robot vocal. It was really buried in the mix and I kept hearing a very annoying squeal. It was perfect in between those two robot parts. This is just my opinion and others may or may not agree.
The only exercise I did this month was run out of money!

64 bit Win 10 Pro - the latest BiaB and RB - Roland Octa-Capture audio interface - a ton of software and some hardware.

I agree with Mario. This is a very cool song. The robot voice does need some adjusting. I think the squeal is coming of the S's. Maybe too much reverb or something like that. But very cool lyric and vocal

A very interesting write. Shades of Pink Floyd mixed with a bit of Tull.

Nice vocal. Good mix. A captivating melody.

A really unusual song subject that,for me you`ve gotten inside with poetry.
I also liked your clear vocals and the melody.
Yes, maybe the robo voice could be improved, but this is good work!

I really like this, Andrew! A really great lyric write with a nice melody. I loved the narrative arc, and I loved the introduction of the robot voice as a new character in your song's story.
