Long Road 03:38
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.

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

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

Last Moment 04:36
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

Let It Go 02:01
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

Presence 02:19

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.

Legend 03:31
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

Gravity 04:50
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

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

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.
