robolitious Frickin' awesome. Darker than Asa's other work, still maintaining a punk rock feel but staying stripped down enough to be... well, Asa Martin. Can't wait to hear these recorded on an official release!

about

Asa Martin New Mexico

The unwavering, unflappable, uncompromising notes of his folk-punk anthems barrel down musical staffs like a charging runaway train.

As wise as a young buck descendent of The Mountain Goats & as wild as a drinking buddy of Frank Turner, He’ll have you in a fever if you’ll have him at your bar or in your basement, & you’ll owe him when them tunes take up residence in your head & your heart.

Track Name: Machine
I wake up every morning, now that's a fuckin lie.
I wake up in the afternoon, i cannot sleep at night,
it started when you called me, i let it ring right through,
the message that you left me, devastating but still true

I can't tell why
We're undefined

I am just a machine to you


Well, I laid down there beside you, and i set a late alarm
laying broken in your bedroom has really lost it's charm
we've been awake for 90 minutes, our heads out of control,
you asked if we're finished, but still wanted to hold

me through the night
what a sorry sight

I am just a machine to you


holding on to the memories of every negativity
is this our plain reality?
or are we a couple of casualties?
when I love you and i hate you sounds the
same when sprayed out through gritted teeth,
you just want whistles, whirs and beeps,
of this old junked out love machine.
well you hated me,
but honestly,
you can hug and kiss this me…..

kiss me goodbye.

I AM JUST A MACHINE TO YOU
Track Name: The Great Unseen
i put my phone on silent last night so i could not hear next to my bed,
and i guess i slept through her calls but i don't care i was dreaming of her instead.

i don't have much to complain about, i just thought of better waves ahead,
it's just that glint in your eye it is just mischievous enough to turn me red.

So Fuck romeo and juliet, i wanna live to see you be my queen,
and i don't want to taste the poison on your lips as we sail this ship into great unseen.

Built this steamboat for us my dear, It seems that i've forgotten how to fail,
dropped my anchor into flowers, so help me hoist it and we'll set sail.

I saw your hair slip through the breeze, and this ocean slowly shifted back into land,
it was a cold glass of water when i awoke to find your fingers weren't intwined in my hand

So Fuck romeo and juliet, i wanna live to see you be my queen,
and i don't want to taste the poison on your lips as we sail this ship into great unseen.
Track Name: New Sunlight Two Suns Rise; One Neon Pink and One Neon Blue-After the First Ever House Show on an Exoplanet or Songs with Long Titles Seem Pretentious. (Remix) [Live]
the smell of cherry flavored vodka,
you felt like sharing one of your neighbors cigarettes,
a dose of low grade marijuana, for four bucks, it was just what you could get

well, you were clinging to me and i was singing to you and our eyes scattered all around the room

That old familiar numbness... it's drifting through my hands again
and it's too hard to stomach, so feel the heaviness
and blame it on my dumbness, and crack my knuckles one though ten,
ready for the plummet into weightlessness

so let's rewrite biology, and make it not so hard to sleep
and make our own reality, and see the new sunlight

See a new sunlight.

you were a splinter under my skin,
so I grabbed a gallon of peroxide but it just bleached your hair,
with these new planets I'd imagined,
I'd plan a tour, no time for talk, i'd get us out of there

you were clinging to the ground as i was singing to a crowd but our eyes daggered all around the room

That old familiar numbness, is drifting through my hands again
and it's too hard to stomach, I feel the heaviness
So blame it on my dumbness, and crack my knuckles one though ten,
ready for the plummet into weightlessness

so let's rewrite biology, and make it not so hard to sleep
and make our own reality, and see the new sunlight

See a new sunlight

Be the new sunlight

See a New sunlight

See the New sunlight

BE THE NEW SUNLIGHT
