"Roboturner" as written by Daniel Lanford Briggs, Robert Dustin Waring, Cartland Blake Richardson, Paul Andrew Waggoner and Thomas Giles Rogers Jr.....
Crush us. Over and over again the years have come to this an improper art form.
Faking our own thoughts and sounds robots crush death of human-music.

Bright lights fill the sky track us through our fields of money
The old days seem shit and primitive abduction control you write for me. Oh, master

Master of the machines take this shit and make it gold.
Make my face sparkle with fame master of the machines

Fuck them hard and neglect their thoughts they will never see us coming

No more human voice no more duman actions imperfect fucks stand in the dark.

Crush us. Over and over again the years have come to this an improper art form.
Faking our own thoughts and sounds robots crush death of human-music.

Counteract this idea of control human emotion can only produce
The thoughtful finally discovering the idea of perfect harmony
This is the day we finally make beautiful notes again
But will we ever realize a situation so far dead make this a war
Blood fills the sky drop the deadly dive-bomb the end of this outside life.

We will find art again.

    General Comment..seems to be about how the process of making music is being taken over by machines...

    Song MeaningI love the loud scream at the beginning, especially straight after listening to the slow, soothing instrumental Breath In, Breathe Out...

    But yeah, for the meaning I think it's about man made machines/robots basically taking over the human species.

    General CommentI take this in two ways:

    1) It could be just in his fanatical mind that there is someone greater than him forcing him to write this, and it's not what he is really feeling, but it's powerful.

    2) I'm assuming he wrote this song after they signed to Victory Records, who are renowned for their forcefulness and focus on sales rather than the music (especially due to their recent controversey). Possibly, VR was pressuring BTBAM to write about certain things, etc. and they decided to write a song about the mainstream and popular labels and how it basically turns the songwriters into little robots/computers, writing whatever is put into them. Or something to that extent.

    I think you understand what I mean.

    General CommentI think your second choice is a lot closer Jaden.

    I think another reason is that every mainstream bands sounds exactly like eachother and are doing the same exact style, making them robots.

    Also, how voices have been changed so much so a good looking person that sings like crap can be made tolerable.

    General Commenthave you ever notice how unique the rythm is in there music, they are no slave to patterns.

    most mainstream band and fucking rap and pop is mostly generated by machine, by producers they
    create shit but their dumb ass fans take it as gold.

    General CommentMmm, I think they are saying we are turning into a society of brutality loving robots, but that art will rise again alongside the deeper parts of what it means to be human.

    But at the same time the music hypothesis is a really really good one.

    General Commentthe two hypotheses could be correct - i.e. the robotic humanity manifesting itself in music.
