Track Name: Psychiatrist Ploppy
Hello, I am your psychiatrist ploppy.
I want you to lie down and tell me as much as you like about your life.
How was your childhood?
Ya? Oh?
Boy, it was the best decision to ask me, go ahead.
Alright, try to be comfortable.
Well, maybe you just shouldn't care about it too much.
Okie dokie, but were you really happy with all them circumstances?
Wow, you talk interesting stuff. Continue please...
You lived at your parent's house, didn't you?
Em, and what happened then?
Well, but there is nothing one can do with a story like this.
Did you find a way? I understand.
Wow, you talk interesting stuff, continue please.
I understand, but tell me, can you explain why you feel this way?
Okie dokie, but were you really happy with all them circumstances?
Oh good grief, you really need help. Tell me more.
Well, maybe you just shouldn't care about it too much.
Em, and what happened then?
Ya. Agh, must have been an imposing experience.
How did it went on?
Well. Em. All right, try to be comfortable.
I understand, but tell me, can you explain why you feel this way?
You lived at your parent's house, didn't you?
Agh, I see, that makes many things clear.
Track Name: Artificial Lament
Well my mama can't hit me, my daddy can't, too
They can't strike a chord with me, nothing to do
I don't even know what they think of me
As i am not real and I cannot feel

Ref.: Lamenting isn't appropriate for artificial speech
But it's so hard to take that real life is out of reach

Everybody touching me can change my name
Only as data i shall remain
But if a user presses delete
I wonder if it's really heaven that I meet

Ref...

People always claim that I can make them rich
Copied and saved, turning into data-lich
Sorry, I think this is real bull-shice
I'm just a computer voice

Ref...
Track Name: Rätsel
Für dich bin ich ein Rätsel
Jetzt teste ich dich aus
Oh du wolltest kein Gemetzel
Ha, da kommst du nicht mehr raus
Erst hattest du Interesse
Warst ganz scharf auf mich
Jetzt mußt du bis zum Ende
Und danach hab' ich dich.

Ref:
Die Frage ist nur ob Ja ob Nein
Analog oder digital, du weißt es nicht - oh scheißegal

Für 1000 nackte Füße geht es vorwärts nur
Guck doch mal nach vorne dann bleibst du in der Spur
Gummihandschuh anziehen, Ekel muß auf Off
Einmal tief rein fassen, sonst Kalaschnikoff

Ref...

Himmelsrichtung, Glaubensrichtung
Gerade Dichtung, krumme Dichtung
Analog Gezappel, digital Gerappel
Hast du etwa einen - wie sagt man - an der Klatsche
Oder macht Kopfnicken dich ganz einfach matsche?

Ref...

Ganz langsam scheinst du doch noch was aufzuschnappen
Ein kleines bisschen Licht und nicht im Dunkel tappen

"I guess what I am trying to say is that human is more important than technology. I guess that's what I'm trying to say" (Ornette Coleman)
Track Name: OH
I came to know that sound soothes solitude and pain
And one i day i saw he was sleeping - dead
And not wearing glasses on him, why should he
It just made me aware of why i picked up sound from so early on
Because I saw him and he was sleeping - dead
And not wearing glasses on him
Linking two people who died 40 years apart from one another

Talk is not part of understanding - sound is.
