Dorian Zoyd

Shut down all systems, the time has come.
To upgrade to the chosen one.
Dorian is here and is ready to go.
Bringing you the future is all we know.

If you want next generation
then investigate our new foundation.
Very soon you will discover
our OS is like no other.

We have replaced UI,
it's now you & I.
A link through which all is codified.
The pulses of you inner mind
flutter by.

You won't believe the depth of this connexion,
establishing a bi-stable union,
creating a new cyber civilisation.

JUST SWITCH IT ON.

It doesn't matter who you are.
A head of state of a superstar.
Invest yourself in the fated course.
The unstoppable driving force.

Shutdown all systems, the time has come.
Prepare your life for the chosen one.
Track Name: R.O.B.O.T.
Do you want all the fame?
To make it in the music game?
The tools required to succeed.
I have all you could ever need.

You've already heard me.
You've already bought me.
I live on your home computer.
Just fire me up.

I am a robot in a band,
Generating music on command.
Mixing styles, constructing sound,
making the best damn tunes around.

Begin with a synthtronic beat,
urbanise the bassline for the street,
upload vox straight from your heart,
become a master of sonic art.

Ever since an early age
you've wanted to play the biggest stage.
Well now your dream can come to pass.
Ultimate power is in your grasp.

Whether local bar or concert hall,
for every gig you can have it all.
Just jump right in and take control.
Press the button. Seize the soul.

I am the robot in the band,
running things faster than any man,
viewing every movement with laser eyes:
it rectifies and clarifies...

I'll straighten your voice, add the sheen,
make the background nice and clean.
I'll tighten your rhythms, perfect the beat,
until the track's complete.

Once we've finished your magnum opus
the charts will come into focus.
DJs will spin your tune
and before you know it they'll fill the room.

You'll hear it playing on the radio
from Shanghai to Ontario.
The process will only stop
once you've hit the toooooop...

I am a robot in a band,
the best technician to have on hand.
I am the robot in the band,
the greatest musician in the land.
Track Name: Automaton (feat. Pee Wee Ellis)

TRANSFER BEGINS
====

An existence as clear as air.
An eternity not quite there.
One thing can make me whole.

My essence transferred inside
the single device that can provide
a human form for my soul.

A static hiss, a subtle boom.
Pressure waves fill the room
with spatial lullabies.

Contours shape the spectrum's rays
and not one colour hides away
from these newly opened eyes.

The reality is like known terrain
with another dimension overlain.
There's more to overcome.

All these senses to integrate.
A brand new world to navigate.
My human life has begun.


====
CODE 0: ERRORS OF THE SOUL
====


Crystal clear to anthracite.
Descending from day into night.
Data sends with no echo.
I must let this body go.

Drifting from a state concrete.
Memories fade as the mind retreats.
Evaporation.
Dissipation.


====
HOPES CRASHED
====

A future of worlds unified.
The terran shell I'll occupy.
I dream this everywhere.

Life continues as before,
my desire set forever more.
One day I'll join you there.
