about

kaptron is the alter-ego of a humble computer geek who likes to spend his free time orchestrating strange melodies in his San Francisco apartment.

2.0 ("two point oh") represents an evolution in the burgeoning field of guitar-computer mating (which can be achieved with enough coaxing), topped off with a smattering of vaguely sarcastic lyrics. Taking cues from good ol' fashioned hard rock, mellow indie rock, funky electronic rock, and layered sedimentary rock, these songs intend to transmit bumping beats into your head space and paint a smile on your facial place.

Don't be afraid. Make the upgrade.

Track Name: Long Road
with hard work and exercise
soon you'll fit into this world without a disguise
something must lie beyond the place we call the sky
well I just can't shake that look in your eye

and I can't feel a thing any more
is there ever an answer through that door
oh is there ever an answer
oh is there ever an answer

giving up or you giving chase?
take a clue from orange juice: concentrate
we might just go to hell for what we brought to show and tell
but I just can't shake that look on your face

and I can't feel a thing any more
is there ever an answer through that door
is there ever an answer
oh is there ever an answer

and I said... you got a long road ahead.
Track Name: Headed Towards The Sun
an open notice reads
"all you need for a better time is one of these"
all you could ever want, ever need
for just three low payments
that's only two plus one

oh it all just sounds so easy
sounds so easy if that's the case
if that's the case I know
oh it all just sounds so easy
and so appealing in every way

...if that's the case.

its like nothing that you've seen before
and if you think that you like the flavor
sent you reeling back to ask for more
so you best be on your best behavior

another note arrives this one just in time
cause you were runnin low on supplies
you signed up for the mailing list
you could just not resist

oh it all just sounded so easy
sounded so easy
is that the case?
is that the case you're sticking to?
oh it all just sounded so easy
and more appealing every day

...but is that the case?

its like nothing that you've seen before
and if you think that you like the flavor
sent you reeling back to ask for more
so you best be on your best behavior
fleeting moments passing out the door
and it's big of you to ask a favor
all washed up on the ocean floor
it's off my treasure chest to be your savior

your bleeding eyes have told me
I am not the one
appearing, veering closely
and headed towards the sun
Track Name: Piece Of The Pie
now that you've got your millions
have you had your fill yet
or does it just whet your appetite
through the night
and through all the time you'll ever have

oh oh oh would it be alright
to let me have a bite
'cause it's lookin so so good
I can almost taste it
I hope they didn't replace it
why aren't you clearing my plate
get up and out of my face (man)
'cause that would be so so cool

now they're off to the slaughter
tasty tasty slaughtering
but to you it's just a paycheck
you haven't even wiped your face yet
nor do you ever plan to

oh oh oh would it be alright
to let me have a bite
'cause it's lookin so so good
I can almost taste it
I hope they didn't replace it
why aren't you clearing my plate
get up and out of my face (man)
'cause that would be so so cool

if you're on your way, I was about to say
if you want to stay, well you oughta say so
Track Name: Last Moment
now I'm waking up but noone knows why
I took you down but I can't repeat the steps
what's keeping you out is my open door
and I just realized this is where we'd met before

oh I... wanted you to notice
though I... had to admit I was a little bored myself

now my last moment has passed
my moment has passed
running water turning over the other side of me
now my last moment has passed
my moment has passed
I'm packing up and handing over to another side of me

and I had my fun but I can't remember why
it's one o clock, but I still don't have the time
there's a piece of shade, why don't we sit and have a drink or two
and I'll bring some more, and hope it turns to three or four

though I... wanted you to know this
oh I... had to admit I never thought that you would care

now my last moment has passed
my moment has passed
running water turning over the other side of me
now my last moment has passed
my moment has passed
I'm packing up and handing over to another side of me
Track Name: Let It Go
lingering in my side
I've got a thorn I can't hide
something so wicked
or so it's implied
but I didn't ever want to say
no I didn't ever want to say
I didn't ever want to say
okay... you're in my way

sensing it was not enough
I was calling my own bluff
impressions that were torn asunder
going getting rough

but I didn't even want to go
no I didn't even want to go
no no... I didn't even want to go

why can't I just let it go?
I think I'll just let it go
Track Name: Nothing's What I Can't Afford To Lose
if I could look you in the eye
and pull your memories into mine
do you think I'd change the way I live my life?

and could I call it off the glass
a surprise that wouldn't last
now I'm running from a past I never had

it's a shame the way they treat it like a game
left me with nothing to do
I've got a whole lot of nothing, more than I can use
but nothing's what I can't afford to lose
I'm blinded, single minded, and hardly been unscrewed
nothing's what I can't afford to lose
in pursuit of a delusion and feeling underused
nothing's what I can't afford to lose

it's insane the way they make it seem so plain
left me with nothing to do
I've got a whole lot of nothing, more than I can use
but nothing's what I can't afford to lose

more than sensory perception, victimized by self abuse
nothing's what I can't afford to lose
a classic misdirection, like the flame before the fuse
nothing's what I can't afford to lose
a tragic lack of action with no means to pay the dues
nothing's what I can't afford to lose
blessed with imperfections to keep me out of tune
nothing's what I can't afford to lose.
Track Name: Santa Rita
back in the day around the way
we had gangstas, hos and guns
baseball cards and slurpee runs
waitin for the time when summer came
another year went down but nothin's changed

first day of class minds runnin with letters
snack break, I tear into some goldfish cheddars
were you just talkin smack about the keds on my feet
'cause it may not be naptime but I'm a put yo' ass to sleep

would you really be frontin' if you knew what i was packing?
it's a nerf gatling gun with the rapid fire action
besides you mess with me you better step to my crew
I run with the thundercats, check my fruit of the looms

lunchtime rolls around, I've got the dragons lair lunchbox
you know the peanut butter sandwich always hits the spot
6 foot rim mini hoop, pass me the rock, please
I'll dunk on your cracker ass like a handi snack in cheese

computer lab, bout to hit the oregon trail
I hope my oxen don't drown my family dies and I fail
hunted down the buffalo to feed my peeps for the winter
time for my pixelated wife to make some pixelated dinner

back in the day around the way
we had gangstas, hos and guns
baseball cards and slurpee runs
waitin for the time when summer came
another year went down but nothin's changed

battleship, connect four, I dominate monopoly
I'm a hungry hungry hippo and there's just no stoppin me
laser tag driveby, shot you in the dome
in my pow-pow-powerwheels rockin 20 inch chrome

got a fresh supply of candy, like a young player should
stocked up on fun dip, reese's pieces taste so good
gotta keep my mind right when I grab that joystick
to play nintendo kung fu where all you do is punch and kick

chicks are hella thick that don't like laser-blasting spaceships
and dot their i's with hearts, dont even get me started
hey that girl you think is neat is moving in down the street
grab the super soakers, let's form a welcoming party

tv sets blaring, star wars and ghostbusters
gotta head to the toy store, and grab more soldiers
to join my transformers, he-man, gi joe convoy
(sucka) my little pony? ain't got no love for ho's toys

back in the day around the way
we had gangstas, hos and guns
baseball cards and slurpee runs
waitin for the time when summer came
another year went down but nothin's changed
Track Name: Legend
a legend is born
so awesome, so cool, so calm and soothing
a heroic tale of poignant truth
it won't be long before they make it a movie

but one time is never enough, child
once they see it done right, they still gotta see it done wrong

on the lips, in the hearts
and the minds of our children
taken down in the annals of history
a spiraling tale followed by receipt of sale
the twist at the end is that there was no mystery

but two times are still not enough, friend
once we build it up, we still gotta burn it down

now the legend is back
as a shirt and a hat and a cereal flavor
if you don't have all three you're a worthless fucking creep
just go down the street and ask your neighbor

onward men, storm the gates
aim for the pockets 'cause we want the money
heads are spinning, it just can't wait
there's a time and a place and we'll shove it in your face

the legend never dies
you cut off its head and it still survives
Track Name: Our Friends
I'm so glad I came here
hope you're not sad to see me leave
don't feel bad if we can't explain
it's gettin late but we already knew
procrastinate till the day it's due

we taught each other
a different way to say the same thing
we got each other
flying high when we were low
there's no goodbye with nowhere to go

we had our own way of telling stories and inside jokes
we can't stay back
but in the end
we'll always have our friends
Track Name: Tape The World
tape my eyes, tape my ears
tape my feelings, hold for my tears and
keep a steady hand as not to ruin the tape

tape your dogs and tape your cats
tape your kids wearing birthday hats
but don't tell me what it's like to be there unless you caught it on tape

tape the walls and tape the mountain tops
tape the scores on the bulletin board
but could you try to lower your voice while the tape is on

I want to tape the world it's not too late we can recreate the world
I want us all to grow up in a tape world, we'll live in a taped world
I want to tape the world

tape my arms, tape my hands
tape the hostage in the back of the van
and if he's got any last words make sure you get them on tape

tape the countries and the people inside
tape the funny ways they're different from you and I
and make sure to take my info down so you can send me a tape

tape your home and your grandma too
tape the TV set while it's taping you
but could you try to ignore the fact that the tape is on

I want to tape the world it's not too late we can recreate the world
I want us all to grow up in a tape world, we'll live in a taped world
I want to tape the world
Track Name: Gravity
half of what you put in
is what you get out
so what you going on about?

oh I see
you'd rather just it take from me
well we can all make believe

ten times out of ten
you empty your cup and then
expect to have it filled again

gravity
what keeps me holdin on to what was lost and found
it's hardly noticed
though its always on our shoulders

all day all right
gonna lay it down all night

so you want me to dance
try as you might, you can't
fatten up a slim chance

just cause you're first in line
what makes you think you can take all the icing off the cake

gravity
what keeps me holdin on to what was lost and found
it's hardly noticed
though it's always on our shoulders
won't tear the walls down
one can only hope they crumble

all day all right
gonna lay it down all night
Track Name: Quarter Past (revisited)
I've traveled far and wide
I've yet to find my mind

I checked it at the door
to settle an unsettled score

when the time is always nigh
quarter past some undefined moment
you were chasing by
only you were bleeding dry
couldn't reach your favorite high
without asking for your line
now you've crossed out what's inside
did you ever even try

well the day's already done
but a hundred years have just begun

you can call it what you like
but I'd punch the guy who stole my bike

when the time is always nigh
quarter past some undefined moment
you were chasing by
only you were bleeding dry
couldn't reach your favorite high
without asking for your line
now you've crossed out what's inside
did you ever even try
