Dance, if you can find your feet Somewhere underneath Or you could sit by me Underneath my tree, my tree. Dance, if you can find your feet Sing, if you can find your voice, your voice, your voice, Dance, if you can find your feet Face the monotony Or you can sit by me Underneath my tree, my tree, my tree Sway, you could make my day Swaying side to side Making me lose my concentration Leave something out here Let us be our own people Leave something out here Let us be our own people. Let’s hide in the trees, the trees, the trees. Ha ha haaaa!

You will be okay without us You will be okay without us We all know, we all know, we all know, what we’ve done. We all know, we all know, we all know, what we’ve done. You will be okay without us You will be okay without us We all know, we all know, we all know, what we’ve done. We all know, we all know, we all know, what’s undone. No, no, no, no, no, no, NO! Okay, okay without us, Okay, okay without us. [No ugly concrete towers to deface the horizon] What happened to the dreams we had years ago? Of driving perfect cars, powered only by water? Yet knowing the cost, like everyone does, We polluted the world from corner to corner. [We all know, we all know, we all know, what we’ve done. We all know, we all know, we all know, what’s undone.] The Republican’s rise, the Resurrection of Christ, Means nothing to a world that’s overwhelmed and dehumanised, The Market Place wasn’t s’posed to replace, Individual thought, power, wisdom and happiness. [You will be okay without us You will be okay without us] [Bluer skies, greener blades of grass, No one left to deliver a forecast.] The Republican’s rise, the Resurrection of Christ, Means nothing to a world that’s overwhelmed and dehumanised, The Market Place wasn’t s’posed to replace, Individual thought, power, wisdom and happiness. [No, no, no, no, no, no, NO!]

Radio does nothing for me Starving my mind No innovations Commercialism stokes the tyranny No great words No standing ovations We have to witness This state of unfitness The world getting blander In easy sound-bites Uncovering such snobbery No thought required Just self-publicity We have to witness This state of unfitness The world getting blander In easy sound-bites

Looks as though we don't explore, anymore, no more Looks as though we couldn't care at all Maybe we're too mature, to rave? Maybe we're too secure? Sure! Where the hell do we go from here? What the hell do we earn for? What the hell do we care about? What the hell do we dream? Let Buran fly! Crimson blizzard in the sky, the sky! Three hours of perfect flight How can that be enough? How can that be enough? Where the hell do we go from here? What the hell do we yearn for? Maybe we're too mature? Maybe we're too secure? Let Buran fly!

Take nothing but your photographs Make nothing but footprints on the earth Have nothing but kindness Leave nothing but good memories We all know that nothing stays the same forever. And everything is everything, The Tuned-In in can work out the plan. Ma yey harr Dove no Kanto mae yi pah Mustrah doy Vostro Im shtavay Kante mae ye pah Neelo day hey key We all know nothing stays the same forever And everything is everything Understanding the plan in our treasure We all know nothing stays the same forever And everything is everything Understanding the plan is our treasure, Understanding the plan is our treasure, Understanding the plan is our treasure.

about

Autorotation's second live release.

Second? Well, the first one is available only in CD format, so you'll have to come to a show to get it.

Anyway, here's the story: our live set has changed quite a bit. It used to be much more mellow, even ambient sometimes. But, something has shifted in us. Maybe it was the influence of the bands we've been working with over the last few years, or maybe the personal hardships and illnesses we've been battling with -- in any case, our new sound is much harder and dancier than before.

However, even though we've reworked the songs to include more live drums and guitars (synths and noises are still there - don't worry), we didn't have a record of it. Until now.

This albums is basically our current (Oct 2019) live set. That's how we approached the recording of it: it's all live, no overdubs or "punch ins" to cover the mistakes. We hope that some of the live energy has been captured, despite having recorded it in a studio.

We would like to thank everyone who has supported us through this transformation.
