Only One Button Left to Push

Uploaded .

Did the guitar tracks first, followed by bass, then drums and vocals last. I wrote this song in a bookstore, after I came home and recorded it, I realized I made the song too short for all the lyrics.

Im talking, she’s texting
Im givin and she’s IM’ing
Im listening, she’s typing
Shes got a quiet stare

Its a cold modern world, and a lonely day

I talk to her but her earbuds are in
her eyes belong to the techno glow
I look her way and she fidgets with the phone
I walk away and she never sees my stare

Age of enlightenment, yet they regress into darkness
Generation lost, has much more to loose
Only one button left to push
Only one button left to push

It seems like you like to deal with technological themes - c.f. Phonus Interuptus. Cool, man.

I thought the lyric to music ratio was perfect. Very cool tune.

I suck at most electronica genres (like trance - I don't like the 4 on the floor aspect) and I don't think I've given country a serious try yet as well.

Flawless reef. I think the length is fine and the lyrics are frigidly modern. It's short, sweet, and directly to the point.

Reefwalker, you don't even need a vocoder. A jacuzzi is a much better option. Once your boy gets into it, he'll forget all about the vocoder! (But I did trade the Caddy for a really nice microphone...)

Norm, my son's been ribbing me about buying a vocoder, but I would rather get a jacuzzi I caught some of that banter in the recording...just had to keep it

IMHO, the only button left to push is "fave"!

Fantastic. Stem to stern hit. I like everything about it. "I'l be my own harmonizing vocoder" - ha! You should really post the lyrics to this gem.
