Their loving arms wrapped around inflicting all this loving harm on us The ones we love we give them space to move and grow to shake our likeness off but it doesn't work When my father spoke, my mind was fed from out of his mold and into the cold where my brother played with his hands he made shapes in the snow he played with the form I thought I heard the voice of and saw the shape of our… Our fathers and our mothers a strange thing to see within you and me our sisters and our brothers with their names on the stones where all of us go

Semiotic 03:55
An ugly foul thing I feel it breathing down my neck Slurping words up Vomits over on under Stay please I don't mind A word exchanged Feeds my mind I live alone, Nosemiot comes for me Eats my words, chews them up, spits them out There is no self, there is no self without the other You know it wants my mind You know to eat me alive A word exchanged feeds my mind A nod exchanged keeps me alive

Ambition 04:32
When I'm old I wonder if I'll try to feed ambition's fire, to feel its drive I wonder if you'll be there by my side to fend off all the fears that come to me at night I thought I was nothing before you were here Now even if I'm nothing your firm and steady hand will give me shape Even if it's as bad as I believe Even if my friends become my enemies Even if my mind begins to flee I hope in your thoughts you remember me I listen while you sleep at night I wonder when we'll have to say goodbye No matter how far away This life will end someday No one can stay

Alonerous 05:00
Somewhere I lost my place Forgot the next page In a haze every day Nothing much to say I miss your eyes I miss seeing you with mine I'm tired, goodnight I miss you, so I write to keep my smile bright I sit in this chair I write my siblings there and visit with a morning prayer Drifting on the snow in frozen Ohio forget the things you think you know I'm tired, goodbye I miss you, so I write to keep my smile bright I sit in this chair I call my children there and visit in the morning where I guess I feel afraid watching you decay without a place Can you see the light Can you see the number Shrinking

about

Mixing rock, pop, and folk sounds, Genetic Engines' self-recorded EP is the fruit of collaboration between Michael Edwards, Andrés Diaz, Sam Worobec, and Ilan Jenkins. From the 60s pop sounds of Into The Cold, through the philosophical sketches of Semiotic, to the expansive baroque alt-country rock of Alonerous a lot of ground is covered.
