Android’s Dream

It’s thirty years since the movie was made, and over fourty since the book (Do Androids Dream of Elecric Sheep?), and all of this really has nothing to do with my choice to write another song about this particular theme.


All I really wanted was just something in that same theme of “What would a robot sing about” etc… And here’s the result, all though I have to admit, it’s kind of a lazy production and I should do some mixing and mastering, maybe even elaborate on the composition a bit, but I wanted to share it anyway because I’ve already spent a bit of time on it now:


And the lyrics go like this:


Not too long ago

I met a sheep

fleece white as snow

and electric


And he said to me

you are asleep

catching your z’s

so don’t be sceptic


That’s when I ‘d recall

how after all

my mind’s is still

so synthetic


How could I have a dream

when it would seem

thoughts in my head are only




Two four six eight

that’s how humans iterate

octal, hex or binary

translates automatically


Three five seven nine

I come from an assembly line

made from chips and nuts and bolts

running on a hundred volts


One day in Japan

when I was made

I met a man

and he told me


Some day you’ll become

just like the rest

thinking like some-

one almost human


How could I have foreseen

what it would mean

for a machine

to uninstructed


Know that I’m something new

and someone who

has a new point of view
