lyrics

Verse 1

There are too many options, there’s too many ways
There’s not enough adoptions in interests these days
This is the blend of not growing out of a faze
And being totally blinded by a Hitchcock haze

Our tendency is to take it back where it began
Cause this emergency doesn’t come with a backup plan
The bytes are out of order, we did it as fast as we can
This is the 8 bit wonder and the utility man

In the interests of saving space, in the interests of time
In the interests of hiss and in the interests of grime
We want to stay like children now is that such a crime
In a timbral sense we prefer not to shine

4 mono channels destroy the future of things
It’s the joy in simplicity and the limitation it brings
It’s taken us over; it’s got us under its wings
Go for safety in numbers if you’re pulling the strings

Chorus

With a 50k backtrack and a 2 dollar mic
Our knees go weak and our heads go light
There’s no point in technology if it’s just not right
We’ve got a 50k backtrack and a 2 dollar mic

With a really small song and a cheap little mic
Our knees go weak and our heads go light
There’s no point in technology if it’s just not right
We’ve got a 50k backtrack and a 2 dollar mic

Verse 2

We don’t stop playing because we grow old;
We grow old when we stop playing is what I’ve been told
We’ll be your bread and butter before we get sold
A little out of the ordinary is the brave and the bold

There’s been about a dozen people like you here before
They will eat you breakfast then show you the door
On the inside of the outsiders we’ll wipe the floor
With all those people who are only about keeping score

It’s the intimate grains and the infinite stains
Is the wonderful world of the intimate pains
A room full of wit, plus a room full of brains
Times a room full of junk and a room full of games

These are some of the parts that make the sum of the whole
Because some of this art can make fun of the roll
It was back in the days of a little heart a little soul
Where we ruined the shine and we liked what we stole

Chorus

With a 50k backtrack and a 2 dollar mic
Our knees go weak and our heads go light
There’s no point in technology if it’s just not right
We’ve got a 50k backtrack and a 2 dollar mic

With a really small song and a cheap little mic
Our knees go weak and our heads go light
There’s no point in technology if it’s just not right
We’ve got a 50k backtrack and a 2 dollar mic
