Song: What A Robot Sounds Like Musing

FAWM 2018

Album: FAWM 2018
Track: #13

Happy Birthday to me! Just wanted to be playful today. The chorus is literally just a brain dump of rhymes/word connections I put in my notes sometime over the last year or two, and as I read it I started to picture this song about a robot in the future writing its first song. I want this to be more of a reveal kind of song like what Tenacious D does with "Tribute" but I wasn't able to see the place for me to really blam that out like they. It's in the ballpark. Maybe as it soaks I can improve it. Also there's a not so hidden message.

The year is 2053
Hence robots have begun to sing
Inventing their own music

So I'm not sure how that sits with me
I'm still back in 2018
Seriously hope they'll use it

Adding some happiness and glee
Sharing the world that they're getting to see
Oh my, this is confusing

Now if you refuse to believe
Got a sample here I brought back with me
What a robot sounds like musing

Art is hard
Hard art
Heart
It takes heart
Hearts break
Heartache
Heck
Why the heck am I doing this?

Robots sure seem to just get me
I have to wonder why I continue to be
Trying so hard to be human

Turns out even in 2053
Even as a robot breaking free
Nihilism's no illusion

But the gist of this epic story
You might still be struggling to glean
But the tech these bots are using

Opened up a portal to 2018
The robots used it and started to sing this
Song that I am singing

Art is hard
Hard art
Heart
It takes heart
Hearts break
Heartache
Heck
Why the heck am I doing this?

Art is hard
Hard art
Heart
It takes heart
Hearts break
Heartache
Heck
Why the heck am I doing this?
Why the heck am I doing this?
Why the heck am I doing this?
