Up There In My Top 10 Of All Time

Unit three thousand twenty one is warming
Makes a humming sound - when its circuits
Duplicate emotions - and a sense of coldness detaches
As it tries to comfort your sadness


One more robot learns to be something more than
A machine - when it tries the way it does - makes it seem
Like it can love -
Cause it's hard to say what's real - when you know the
Way you feel - is it wrong to think it's love
When it tries the way it does...

Feeling a synthetic kind of love
Dreaming a sympathetic wish -
As the lights blink faster and brighter -

One more robot learns to be something more than
A machine - when it tries the way it does - makes it seem
Like it can love -
Cause it's hard to say what's real - when you know the
Way you feel - is it wrong to think it's love
When it tries the way it does...

if there's any album that gets me to explore things...art, music, thought gathering, writing, inspiration...its Yoshimi. I love it so. There's a guy my spouse used to work with who moved a few years ago. So everytime we hear this album, my spousie says "you remind me of *insert name* who moved away with his wife who was a physical therapist (or something like that) a few years ago. The way you take up new mediums and excel, the way you talk, your experiences, just the most awesome parts of you, they remind me of him. he's your twin." So anyway, when the spouse found out I LOVED this album, and knew this work guy did too, it opened a door for us to know eachother. It piqued the interest of my sig other enough to explore me and then love me. I loved this album before, but now it means so much more. Understand?
