PARADE OF GIANT ROBOTS (Spain) In the year 2707 After two or three nuclear wars When the world is at the height of its destruction Giant robots are born Built to serve and to protect man Like your very own Superman Twenty stories the mechanical stands Giant robots are sworn Are they gods? Are they toys? Are they friends to little boys? Do they love us? Do they care? There they go, flying up in the air Up in the air Mecha7 and Trident13 Had a battle over the Baltic Sea Trident13 had an atomic blast And blasted Mecha7 into the past That’s the way the world became enslaved It was the final battle for man’s fate Now humanity curses the day Giant robots were born Are they gods? Are they toys? Are they friends to little boys? Do they love us? Do they care? There they go, flying up in the air Up in the air

TIME CRUSH (Spain) Whatever am I gonna do? I’ve fallen so in love with you A love that’s never meant to be You died in 1863 Until they build a time machine I’ll have to be content with dreams In my mind you’re here with me And in my mind you’ll always be There just ain’t no girls like you these days I’m so tired of these shallow women’s ways I saw your story on TV And read about you fervently The way you held yourself with such grace And left no pictures of your face But I have seen the actress play Your part, and I just have to say If I could be there by your side I’d cross the very sands of time There just ain’t no girls like you these days I’m so tired of these shallow women’s ways

CYBORG (Spain) We’re gonna take you when we go On through the future cold and slow We’re gonna take away your soul Cyborg Cyborg Who’s gonna get us through the night? All those computer parts look outta sight And we might get into a fight Cyborg Cyborg Oh, won’t you tell me what I’m seeing Could it be my senses disagreeing Or could this be a human being? Cyborg Cyborg Cyborg

MODERN LIFE FOR SOULS (Spain) Doctors prescribing death Have to buy every breath City skies have little form Your life is like a uniform Put it on when you awake Hope to God it doesn’t break Cement City’s just ahead Where everything’s as good as dead And the world still turns... Born and raised on the farm Country sun to keep you warm Where the concrete cuts the night The sun replaced by neon light Like an ant crawls up the mound To where the other ants are found Just a number, not a name And all the faces look the same And the world still turns...

ALIEN (Spain) After all that we’ve been through Don’t you Think that we could work this out somehow? But now, I feel so far away Seems like we were lovers only yesterday And you make me feel like an alien Take me with you when you fly away Take me with you when you fly away Seems that we just can’t figure it out The secret language We used to share back when we used to care Are you still there? You don’t hear the words I say Are you okay to go our separate ways? And you make me feel like an alien Take me with you when you fly away Take me with you when you fly away

RUNDOWN CARNIVAL OF LOVE (Spain) Women will chase you down Like they’re drunk out of their minds Play all kinds of tricks on you Till they make you call out their name Once they win your heart Somehow they don’t want you no more Just like a booby prize Won in a carnival game Can’t be the lonely one Sure you’re not the only one Everybody gets to take a ride But no one’s ever been satisfied In the rundown carnival of love Paper says it’s gonna snow So you dream of where you’d go If you had a month or two Just take off and catch a clue Get that girl out of your thoughts Commit deeds without getting caught Take on a new identity Just like the man you want to be Inside your lonely dream You can still feel the steam Of the way she held your self-esteem And no one’s gonna care if you scream In the rundown carnival of love Back to the shooting gallery Show yourself you ain’t done yet And you can’t see her anyway Where the broken sights are fixed When you’ve blasted her from your mind Go off and feed your baser needs Just remember we’re all decoys Set up for Cupid’s kicks You just keep falling down Like that old circus clown And you can’t even make a sound And there ain’t much laughter to be found In the rundown carnival of love

FALLING UP (Spain) Falling up, falling down Turning everything upside down How this world spins around Falling up not falling down I was standing on a bridge I looked down and there I found Something to live for Falling up, falling down Turning everything upside down How this world spins around Falling up not falling down When you’re caught between the sky And the ground you yearn to fly My wings were broken Falling up, falling down Turning everything upside down How this world spins around Falling up not falling down This world spins I’m falling up

about

Love In The Age Of Circuitry, the debut album from singer/songwriter Andy Spain, explores humanity's place in an increasingly synthetic world. Through songs about robots, heartbreak and modern life, Andy crafts a unique style that merges past and future, old and new, folk and the avant garde.

Inspired by luminaries such as John Lennon, Neil Young, David Bowie and Frank Zappa, Andy's style is centered around insightful lyrics laced with cynical wit, infectious melodies and a psychedelic sound palette. In the tradition of Trent Reznor and Prince, Andy Spain not only wrote all the songs on Love In The Age Of Circuitry, he engineered it and played all the instruments. It is truly a singular artistic statement.

Released under Andy's own label, Sci-Folk Recordings, all proceeds from sales go directly to the artist, so you are supporting independent music with your purchase.
