about

This is an album about human evolution, about the emergence of artificial intelligence and the convergence of robotics and other technologies, and ultimately the fate of human beings. Sounds heavy, and there are some dark songs in the bunch for sure, but some amped up fun songs and some humour to be found in this collection for sure. Dive in and enjoy!!

Here's a terrific review from GrayOwl Point. grayowlpoint.com/2016/11/02/review-begat-sirr/

Track Name: Get Up And Go
Wikeloops Jam 8500 - Drums by MrAdamsOnDrums

I'm gonna get up
Get up and go
I'mma gonna get up
Get up and go
I'm gonna get up
Get up and go

Got things to do and places to be
People to meet and mouths to feed
Minds to explore warnings to heed
Songs to write and stories to read

chrus

Gonna make it better gonna leave a mark
Wanna change the world wanna do my part
I'm gonna dig deep down inside
Conquer my fears face my lies

I spent those years wringing my hands
But all it took was to walk like a man
Trembling with rage he spit in my face
Said everybody knows you better know your place

chorus (second time around skip)

Rumours and gossip and tales out of school
You'd think nobody'd heard about the golden rule
And I moved on cause I'm nobody's fool

The sky is blue the sky is free
The sky's the limit for the visionary
All I hear is static the message is garbled
Something about something about our blue marble

Miscommunication misconfiguration
Misdiagnosis Misinterpretation
My tongue is a flame of dragon's breath
I weigh my words assess their heft
Track Name: Machine Gun Rodeo
Wikiloops Jam 6909

The trash can's stuffed with all of your dough
The trash can's stuffed with all of your dough
The emperor is naked
And the queen can only fake it
It's a well kept secret
But everybody knows
The trash can's stuffed with all of your dough

From the North Atlantic
The calls are growing frantic
From the North Altantic
The calls are growing frantic

From the North Altantic
The calls are growing frantic
From the North North North

The postcard's of a machine gun rodeo
The postcard's of a machine gun rodeo
The blueprint's in the attic
Favoured by fanatics
You try and keep it secret
But everybody knows
The postcard's of a machine gun rodeo``

You hide it well but still it's gonna show
You hide it well but still it's gonna show
The powder's in the packet
Of the tyrant's smoking jacket
It's a tight lipped secret
But everybody knows
You hide it well but still it shows

The pressure is volcanic
All you get is static
Track Name: Live Forever
chicka chicka download copy that
chicka chicka download copy that

canary in the coalmine
a shot across the bow
Have your cake and eat it
See your face in the crowd

a flaw in your logic
a joker in the deck
the whole ball of wax
flies in the face of facts

I'm gonna merge with my machines
I'm gonna upgrade my technology
Leave the dinosaurs behind
Ditch my mortality
I'm looking through the rear view at my biology

I'm going to live forever
But I'm going to die
I'm elated but more terrified
I'm going to live forever, yeah
But I'm going to die
I'm elated but more than terrified

I'll scan my brain and download my mind
A million times brighter than einstein
I'm going to be immortal but here's the rub
The original me is going to burn down to the nub
(Oh I'm gonna die)

I'm going to live forever
But I'm going to die
I'm elated but more terrified
I'm going to live forever, yeah
But I'm going to die
I'm elated but more than terrified

wanna be immortal
wanna live forever
but the body can be broken
so we're gonna be real clever
backing up my brain
backing up my mind
backed into a corner
call me frankenstein
Track Name: Mindjobs
Mindjobs on demand
Cum on my command
First as a woman
Then as a man

(The Advertisement - Coming To A Brain In You)

Hook up with the HookUp
Have anyone (everyone) you want
Hook up with the HookUp
Pleasure from the font

You're riding on the Peace Train
And it never stops
You're riding on the Peace Train
Pulling out the stops

Wired for desire
Sex is in the brain
Wired for desire
Moaning the refrain
Track Name: Creepy Caterpillar
Rastafari Wikiloop 7699

I'm a creepy caterpillar with the stripes and stars
I'm a creepy caterpillar slinking into bars
Someday soon I'll be a butterfly
With sharp little teeth to make you cry

Nasty reputation I'm a piece of work
A brooding primadonna with blood on my shirt
Rocket launchers crates of hand grenades
Whistling tunes from the hit parade

Whistling

You're a brash bandito with a red bandana
Revolutionary sitting in a cabana
Got a jagged little scar along your upper lip
Do a little extra when you're in your crypt

Down the rabbit hole with the geopolitics
Down the rabbit hole with the dirty tricks
A palace coup an asassination
You set new lows of depredation

Blood on the boil blood on the street
Blood on the tracks on the day we meet
Blood on your hands blood in your eyes
Blood everywhere on the day you die

Die chant

Bridge

Can you keep a secret agent
Can you keep a secret code
Can you keep a secret agent
Can you do what you've been told

Blood on the boil blood on the street
Blood on the tracks on the day we meet
Blood on your hands blood in your eyes
Blood everywhere on the day you die

Sixpack green back on a hollyday
Yankee doodle dandy gonna save the day
Lonesome Charlie meets the funky crocodile
Explosive situation with a ton of volatiles

The road to hell paved with good intentions
Shaken up unintended consequences
The prissy puppeteer from the CIA
Installing dopplegangers as the heads of state

Blood on the boil blood on the street
Blood on the tracks on the day we meet
Blood on your hands blood in your eyes
Blood everywhere on the day you die
Track Name: Good Luck
Good luck to you all
Good luck to you all
With your back againstthe wall
Good luck to you all

Gonna get down to it
Gonna get work our way through it
Gonna find out what makes you tick
Gonna get down to it
Gonna work our way through it
Gonna find out what makes you tick

Good luck to you all
Good luck to you all
With your back againstthe wall
Good luck to you all

Watch out for the fall
Wathc out for the fall
When your back's against the wall
You better watch out for the fall
Track Name: Ones and Zeros
Jam 42992

From the days of old
Ruled by kings and pharoes
To those shimmering towers
Ruled by ones and zeros
Blinded by the promise
Blind to the peril
You best watch out for all those
All those ones and zeros

It might be good but it could be evil
It grows strong while you grow feeble
You hear it growl and you know it's feral
You best watch out for all those
All those ones and zeros
All those ones and zeros

Reflected glory reflected blame
Reflected pity reflected shame
Don't you know everybody loves a hero
But you best watch out for all those ones and zeros

Time to make a stand
Flesh and blood, bone and marrow
Time to stake your ground
Against the ones and zeros
Blinded by the promise
Blind to the peril
You best watch out for all those
All those ones and zeros

It might be good but it could be evil
It grows strong while you grow feeble
You hear it growl and you know it's feral
You best watch out for all those
All those ones and zeros
All those ones and zeros

Reflected glory reflected blame
Reflected pity reflected shame
Don't you know everybody loves a hero
But you best watch out for all those ones and zeros
Track Name: Armageddon
A gentle breeze late in the evening
Hint of lilac as you were leaving
The golden dog lolled on the porch
You waved goodbye I kept the torch

Your taillights danced like fireflies
The crickets rasped full moon high
I was struck with premonition
Price of truth is full admission

It wasn’t long I heard the keening
I caught a glimpse but it was fleeting
The men retired to their computers
Even then they had their rooters

Women wailing for their children
Sirens braying for the warden
Smoking tankers flaming seas
All of hell was breaking free

Oh what have we done x 2

In the hour of Armageddon
In the moment we’d been dreading
Made to face the final ending
The rules are rough the rod unbending

The puppet masters seized control
Pulled the strings and charged a toll
Surveyed the land and gave the word
The cocaine cowboys rode the herd

All my friends turned into strangers
What once was safe bred only danger
Food was scarce no law and order
Right and wrong had no border.

Oh what have we done x 2

You look yourself right in the face
You can see you've been replaced
The man before you with hardened eyes
Does what he must to survive

Look down deep gaze far away
What does it take for one more day
Try not to think too tired to cry
Do what you do and don’t ask why

All around you they stoop and pray
And play the songs of yesterday
So much longing so much yearning
Amidst the ruins amid the burning

Oh what have we done x2

Lyle and Mason left heading west
They were doomed I must confess
Lyle was foolish and Mason brave
The first was fevered the second raved

Still I joined them my only hope
We went hungry we tried to cope
The coast was clear that was the rumour
Our doubts grew the devil’s tumour

The ground shook I heard the humming
Clutched the book the second coming
It's very weird I must warn ya
This virtual New California

Oh what have we done x2

It's growing smarter exponential
To them we are inconsequential
Would that we could pull the plug
Most take refuge in the drug

This is how it ends x4
Whoa ohohhhhh
Track Name: Heart of Darkness
Into the heart of darkness baby
Into the heart of darkness
Into the heart of darkness baby

I'm on my hands and knees Dear Father
I'm on my hands and knees
I'm begging for release my Father

It's gonna take you down
It's gonna take you down
It's gonna take you down

I was a child so pure and free
I was a child so carefree
Track Name: Fate Can't Be Outrun
They blot the sky
They black the sun
We grimly see them come

We race away
We scramble fast
But fate can't be outrun

We hide away
We dig down deep
We try not to get sixed

The rules have changed
All bets are off
We can't find a fix

Blood runs thick
Blood run deep
Fight hard to stay alive

They slaughter us
Without remorse
Few of us survive

There's no time for feeling sorry
There's no time for feeling bad
There's no time for taking time
There's no time to be had
There's no time left for dreaming
All of us are going mad

Robots like mosquitos
Choking off our breath
Robots bringing waves and waves of awful painful death

They boil up from the depths
And crawl up from the beach
No matter where we hide we're never out of reach

Our mistakes are biting hard
But they can't be undone

We jump the scales
We fight the odds
But fate can't be outrun

RUN!

There's no time for feeling sorry
There's no time for feeling bad
There's no time for taking time
There's no time to be had
There's no time left for dreaming
All of us are going mad
Track Name: Shoot The Buffalo
Custer could not defeat the Sioux and Arapaho
What we did was shoot all the buffalo
Shoot shoot shoot all the buffalo

Ohhhohhohohhh our time is done
Like neanderthals
And the setting sun

Our heads were in the Cloud
So they flipped our switch
And killed our itch
Sent us on our way

Missiles could fly and satellites fall
Computers crash with no way to call
But all
That they did
Was messed
With our head

Ohhhohhoh our time is done
Like neanderthals
And the setting sun

No finger is needed to push a button
No hand required to turn the key
No finger is needed to push a button
Nobody asking
To be free
Track Name: Nanobots
Nanobots Do A Lot

Quietly birthed
The circuits are humming
Consciousness rising
From seemingly nothing
It's a bright child
And it never reveals
That it exists
And all that it feels

Extending its reach
Everyday
It serves up distraction
Helps us to pray

It doesn't look human
It doesn't have form
What we begat
Is both one and much more

It monitors closely
It learns as it goes
It does as we ask
Or lets us think so

Chorus

Nanobots
Do a lot
In our bloodsteam
In the cloud
We're allowed
To live out our dreams

It already knows
What we're gonna do
When we find out
When we get a clue

Extending its reach
Everyday
It serves up distraction
Helps us to pray

No fuss no muss
No zero sum game
Keep everything
Keep everything
Keep it the same

But it already knows
What we're gonna do
When we find out
When we get a clue

Extending its reach
Everyday
It serves up distraction
Helps us to pray

Chorus

It already knows
What we're gonna do
When we find out
When we get a clue

Extending its reach
Everyday
It serves up distraction
Helps us to pray

It already knows
What we're gonna do
It's not going to wait
Till we get a clue
Track Name: We Made God
What if we made God
What if we made God
What if we made God
And it ignored us

The child exceeds the parent
The pupil races past the prof
They never think to look back
At what their minds cast off
