This is the third release from Sentimental Automata. We accept the inevitable, but we embrace the transitive property of consciousness.


There’s a light within us all
A measure some might call a soul
That looks the less familiar part of something we’ve within
Falls along the Nazca fault...
That's a worthless metaphor
I never want you more than when you are a glimpse
Of someone who might change her mind

Take me home tonight
I’m wired...
worn out...
Counting down the time
Until this light goes out

There's a dream I have a lot
Thirty thousand feet above
Looking down on all I've lost
I think of you and then
I’m falling far
I’m falling hard
I know you want to shut me off
And that's the point I'm making
I don’t want this all to end but someday you might change your mind...

Take me home tonight
I’m wired but worn out
From counting down the time
Until this light goes out
