System Failure

about

Official release: June 11, 2021

The single seeks to show how important it is to maintain a permanent balance, a harmony between connecting with other people via a computer – and actually socializing in physical form.
A contrast between the modern and traditional way of communication, for lack of better wording.

For the first time ever SoftWave has included vocoded vocals by Jerry, to emphasize how much certain
people live their lives through a computer – and almost communicate to the world with it.

lyrics

LYRICS
________________________________________________________
Are you serious?
Your anger’s like a “tik tok” ticking bomb
A self destructive mind
With a crack in your eyes
CPU failure – it overloads your system!

System failure – makes you angry
System failure – and complaining
Re-start and synchronize
In harmony

Are you too scared?
You’ve installed a big lock on your door
Hiding from the outside world
Without getting hurt
You fear you fear the wired connections
Hurry up n’ log me into your system
Or you will forever be disconnected by your unstable actions
Cool down your temper – it overheats your system!

System failure – makes you angry
System failure – and complaining
Re-start and synchronize in harmony

System failure – makes you angry
System failure – and complaining
Re-start and synchronize in harmony

Sooner or later we will synchronize forever
Sharing memories
Good n’ bad dreams
Stop logging me out of your system
Stop logging me out of your system (system) stop logging me out (failure)
Stop logging me out of your system (system) stop logging me out (failure)

System failure – makes you angry
System failure – and complaining
Re-start and synchronize in harmony

(“CPU” “overload” “restart” “failure” “emergency” “shotdown” “system” “reboot” “failure”)
