Darren Douglas Danahy Not unlike some of my favorite science fiction films or books - where the more detailed my understanding of the work, the more I appreciated them - this album truly became unlocked to me after multiple listens.

Automata uses sounds like environments that describe large shadowy places where melody reaches out to you like a hand from the shadows, a hand you want to take but feel unsure of.

Take that hand and immerse yourself in these environments, say I. You won't regret it. Favorite track: Survive.

The Shadow 05:48
Shadows Cast shadows Repetitions Cast shadows Cast doubt Repetitions Dragging along Casting shadows Casting doubt Repetition strong Repetition strong Dragging me along
Isolate 04:02
Short of breath it’s taken all I have to say Out of step I’ve lost myself along the way Now isolate to cause ourselves to fade away So complicate this masquerade we betray Short of breath it’s proving hard to disobey Out of phase distorts yourself for our dismay [It’s all too late - Isolate] Sure of all the things I tried to convey Cause of death will feel as if it starts decay Now assimilate to prove it’s not all cliche So communicate not escalate with no delay Short of breath it’s taken all I have to say Out of step I’ve lost myself along the way Now isolate to cause ourselves to fade away So complicate this masquerade we betray Isolate [x4]
The righteous They slaughter All our sons All our daughters Give me my soul The gift of control To get deep inside Where my faith lies So you want in To plant the seed You say virtue I say need So you want in To plant the seed You say virtue I say need You give me Give me a reason to believe you Give me Something that I can never have You give me Give me a reason to believe you Give me Something that I can never have
Survive 05:24
You don’t even try to ignore it Just letting it meet your demise And all that I try to destroy it Its letting me die in your eyes. So stand up now and fight it Come out from where you hide Let’s take apart what’s constructed To let us see who survives. Out of the night it comes Into the places we all know Out of the night it comes Come from our darkest history Out of the night it comes Carry us off without a sound Out of the night it comes Out of the night it comes I’ll stand out now to fight it I know it’s much ill advised And all that ends with forgiveness When I won’t be the one who survives.
Nature doesn’t recognize good and evil Nature only recognizes balance and imbalance And man-kind is the later of the two That Mother Earth has almost found an antidote for She’s been working on it for quite some time now And at this moment she almost has it perfected Injected as the smoke stacks stand like syringes Pointed towards the sky the closer we die with our Saturated chemical products taught to destroy Tear down another rainforest as the native inmates have No other choice but to adapt to lifestyles of corruption, abduction. Build another fucking fast food franchise for the sake of frantic corporate feeding frenzies Pump your machine with gasoline and let nature run it’s corse obscene There is no greater opponent than the earth who carries us, buries us She will plant the seeds after our departure and as we continue to play our game of extinction she will stand by eagerly waiting for a brand new start to everything. History will indeed repeat itself But this time from the very beginning it will be as if we were never even here.
If only silence Then they couldn’t get to you In echoed sirens, in memories all rushing through And in a moment they could fade away But in that moment you will plead they stay If only silent Then they might not break it through The walls and palisades To take what’s safe inside of you But in a moment it could fade away And in that moment you will plead they stay
Keep your head down Take what’s wanted Keep your sights locked On what you’ve hunted. Now who’s the hunted? Taking a life Taking a life, tonight Holding on to the edge of a knife. Taking a life Taking a life, tonight Who’s to say when you’re wrong or right. Hold it off now We’re confronted Hold it back now They’re distrusted Fell so deep, left so cold Now we’re primed, to lose control. [Chorus] Now who’s the hunted?
If anyone could know The broken bones would show If anyone could try We’d get caught in the lie And down we go Down we go. [x2] And down we go We go Trapped in undertow We go And now you know We know We reap what you sow. We go.
No sound No light Haunted like branches into the night. No roots No leaves Stretched bare I attempt to breathe. Inert Alone Bark stripped back to the bone. Aflame Alight No one makes it out all right.
Twist and turn Some things I can never learn Scratch and burn Leaving me with no concern Grasp and churn Clouding all that I deserve In the spaces between Our inner consciousness is seen In the spaces between We’re all displayed as obscene To divide the mainstream I can hear the static on the line The static on the line Twist and turn Scratch and burn Twist and turn I can hear the static on line.
