about

“The hook is like a riff from a Super Mario video game. I pulled this track out of left field and ‘Red Pill’ immediately had a certain swagger to it that I fell in love with. The bass in all of it’s fuzzy goodness drives the whole song as the lead instrument, but something about the swanky drum beat and slurring synthesizers makes me move. ‘Red Pill’ is grounded but disorienting all at once in a way that makes me feel drunk with nostalgia.

The jerky vocal lines and surrealist lyrics seemed relevant to the current culture war going on in the world too. I wrote, produced and recorded the song all at once in a single day by myself. Like the rest of the record I did this one straight to tape and loved every minute of it. I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I did making it.”

lyrics

Red pill baby, never thought it happened to you
Robots taking over all our brains and I'm in ecstasy
Lobotomy, are you leaving some for me? I don't think so

Now that there is no one left to blame, to blame
Once you see you'll never be the same, the same

Red pill baby, never thought it happened to you
How could you believe in anything that's not lockstep true?
This is a holocaust of every single thought that's not mine

Now that there is no one left to blame, to blame
Once you see you'll never be the same, the same

Red pill baby, never thought it happened to you
Red pill baby, never thought it happened to you

Now that there is no one left to blame, to blame
Once you see you'll never be the same, the same
