Electric Eyes

I’m counting the moons, while I’m thinking of you, while I’m jamming this tune, and I’m keepin it true.  I savor the mood, til seven the morn, Got diamonds for souls, I’m a regular dude.  Some keepin quiet, while I’m starting a riot, Just give me a reason, and it’s gotta be live.  I’m sitting alone in a one bedroom home, like a rocket ship that’s about to explode.  I saw the flash of light, inside my mind,  I like it so divine, electric eyes.

Got something to say on a rainy day, my 9-5 can`t take my soul.  I’m too awake I’m too alive, Not satisfied with a world of lies.  Lay down in a grave go back to sleep, Or so they’d wish for you to go away, Your one true face could shine so bright, I see in you electric eyes.  I saw the flash of light, inside my mind, I like it so divine, electric eyes.


Notes: I wrote and recorded Electric Eyes in my home studio in Tokyo, in January of 2010, using Ableton Live 7.  It was the last song made for the album and took one week to make.  The opening melody was the initial spark, then the beat came next.  I recorded the vocals on one rainy Saturday.  The lyrics are centered around the pain I felt over my relationships with colleagues at my corporate job combined with the emptiness I felt from living in a robotic society, thousands of miles away from home and family.

    This song is perfect in every way and it fits my current emotional and relational status seamlessly. I have probably played this song for 2 hours straight and have showed it to 5 of my friends after only first discovering it 2 days ago. Thank you for making such a beautiful and mesmerizing piece! ~Saira

    I found this song via Spotify and listened to it a few times in my playlist. Yesterday was my 28th b-day, and the first one I've had in many years where I wasn't struggling with addiction. I woke up this morning and for some reason this song was just blaring in my head, not letting me fall back asleep. I've been listening to it all morning. I feel you.

    Heard this for the first time, 3-3-2017. I think it is one of the greatest songs I have ever listened to. I hope the sound track is still available.
