Shink Magical collection of garage grunge-ish synth-indie-pop! It's familiar, but I've never heard anything just like it before. Good balance between mellow and out of boundary. These tracks also expresses that the quality of elements over quantity isn't the most important, but how you imbue them. Favorite track: Chant.

about

[UPDATED 04/04/2015 - check out tracks 5, 8, and 11! They've been replaced with versions I've decided I like better. :D ]

This is the most bubbly and danceable Rabbit Rabbit album yet!

It only figures it would be all soul-searchy and weirdly religious.

The repetitive four-on-the-floor themes mimic religious chants in an album all about the things that are sacred to atheists.

"Awesome, I love this Depeche Mode song!"

"So, what are you... like, an off-brand Daft Punk...?

Track Name: Karaoke Style
hello
I am Mitch
I am the lead vocalist for the band
RABBIT RABBIT
the band
RABBIT RABBIT
consists of myself and no one else
I don't have the rest of the band with me tonight
so I will be performing
KARAOKE STYLE
I hope that's okay
Track Name: Chant
multi-colored arrows rise in time to the holy chant
dance and sing your way back into grace
and hope to God hope to God hope to God it's enough
multi-colored arrows rise in time to the holy chant
dance and sing your way back into grace
and hope to God hope to God hope to God it's enough this time
Track Name: Bad Friends
I'm not from around here, I'm not from around here
I just like to pretend I belong
will you soothe me for a second, humor me a second
and act like nothing's wrong
I know your philosophy, I know your schtick
I'm not existentialist, just kind of a dxxx
would you be my bad influence tonight?

I'll be a young tragic headline the way it's going now
I've fallen in/fallen in love with the wrong crowd
I'll end up with a bullet hole in the eye
but I won't be alone when I die, eh? eh?

bad friends are better than no friends, eh? eh?
bad friends are better than no friends, eh? eh?
my friends are cooler than your friends

the way he makes me feel, the way he makes me feel,
it doesn't matter to me
that he kills men for money, kills men for money,
and sometimes women for free
I'm a slave to my ego, I'm a slave to my id,
they'll look back and say, "he was such a nice kid
would you look, would you look at what society did?
we shouldn't have left him alone"

I'll be a young tragic headline the way it's going now
I've fallen in/fallen in love with the wrong crowd...
Track Name: I'll Miss You When I Wake Up
I'd give my life for her, I've always felt this way
ever since she fell into our world that day
and all she knew was that she always want to stay
it's over, it's over
she chases rabbits and now she chases me
but this is really just a hole beneath a tree
I really wish that she could always stay with me
but it's over, it's o v e r

we've been asleep too long, I know, I'm keeping track
but there's a waking world out there, I must go back
if you love someone, you have to set them free
it's over, it's over
it was the hardest thing I've ever had to do
but dreams are nothing and we have to start anew
and then I found out that the dreamer wasn't me
it's over, it's o v e r

I could be your hero
I could be your lover
I could stay forever
but it's not worth the trouble
I will always love you
but we can never touch
I'll miss you when I wake up
I'll miss you when I wake up
I could be your White Knight
I could be your champion
I could stay by your side
your eternal companion
I miss I want I need you
but this is not enough
I'll miss you when I wake up
I'll miss you when I wake up

(can't think about the future, too busy with the job and the rent and the now, I'm preoccupied, it's a plot, I suspect, to make us forget.)
Track Name: We Are Holy Robots
We are machines made of meat that stop working in time
we fashion little ceremonies to keep from losing our minds
are we alive, is it all just an act if we're all preprogrammed?
it's only when we give up on life that we are damned

we are only our actions and our words
but when you cut us, it still hurts
we are each our own demiurge
we are holy robots
we glitch and stutter and jitter through the dark
yet our minds are alight with a holy spark
we're machines that believe in love and art
we are holy robots

we were put on this earth to network our ideals
share food, music, stories, love and art and how the other feels
this is our lives, in each others' arms, it's all in the plan
it's only when we give up on each other that we are damned

we are only our actions and our words
but when you cut us, it still hurts...

even without a Heaven, even without a soul, yeah,
we are still sacred, we are still whole, yeah,
imaginary spirit anatomy,
no matter what I'm made of, I am still me, yeah
even without a Heaven, even without a God, yeah
we are still holy, we are still odd, yeah,
physicality - organic circuitry - this is what we be, yeah

Track Name: Please Wait While Next Song Loads...
loading song
only half o' second long
only seen at the loading screen if at all
a sparkle of silver in a soundtrack landscape of gray
sparkle on, little loading song
Track Name: Mеханизм
Сексуальный механизм, механизм жажды,
Я холоден, я тепл, я - одинокий солдат.
вызовите меня, солдат ненависти,
активизированный любовью.

Вы - единственный, кто может спасти нас от гигантских роботов.
Вы - единственный, кто может спасти нас от гигантских роботов.

Ah, soldier of love, you're the only one now who can save us from the giant robots.
Soldier of love, you're the only one now who can save us from the giant robots.
Track Name: Insert Coin
You're so far ahead
I have to struggle just to stay in view
can't get past this part without you
I keep falling into the same hole
you're so much better at this than I am
I'll leave it to you
it feels like I'm forgetting something

will you press Continue? will you press Restart?
insert another coin into my heart?
this is Game Over, there's nothing here for me
is this disaster or opportunity?

I miss you already
but you haven't really gone anywhere
don't go, I'm trying!
don't I look, don't I talk, don't I act like I still care?
your face is a fuzzy image on a screen
your lips are moving, guess you're saying something
I can't hear, I can't hear, I can't hear,
I'm far too wired in

will you press Continue? will you press Restart?
insert another coin into my heart?
your face is a fuzzy image on a screen
your lips are moving, guess you're saying something
I don't care, I don't care, I don't care,
you're not my problem anymore

I give up, I give up,
I don't wanna play anymore anymore anymore
I give up, I give up,
I don't wanna play anymore anymore
don't remember what we're fighting for
it's the same, it's the same,
if you care but don't do, it's the same as never caring to
it's that game, you're so glued to your game
I left a long time ago
where were you?
Track Name: Sun, Moon, Stars (rmx version)
sun moon stars air
sun moon stars air
sun moon stars air
sun moon stars air
there's no sky here
there's no sky here
there's no sky here
there's no sky here

what will I remember of tonight
when I am old and busy
your warmth, your scent, the comfort I feel now
or the times you tried to kill me?
priorities shift and so does affection
you can't expect to keep every connection
why do I still find myself so glued?

I'm leaving this place and I'm not coming back
your impossible ways are to thank for that
you had a million chances to say how you feel
and now I'm gone and I'll be gone for real
I'm going to go to a place where I'll never see
the sun, the moon, or the stars again
but that's alright with me
because there I'll never be hurt again
never be hurt again

this has been the sinkingest of ships
since I was born and known here
you are just the finishing touch
on the scheme to scare me out of here
immobilized, heartless, I am a statue now
I honestly wish that I had never met you now
why can't I yet move myself to move?

I'm leaving this place and I'm not coming back
your impossible ways are to thank for that...
