about

gloryBots began as a vehicle for pushing personal bounds in song writing and development. The album, "Dark Alien Pop", was originally entitled "Analog Twin", and began without much direction, slowly evolving into what it is today. We hope you enjoy it!

Dark Alien Pop, gloryBots' debut LP, is nicely described in these select reviews (in no particular order):

Track Name: Entanglement
All in all, you realize all of this is solitary, blue
And then you’ll know.
And when you turn to realize that all of this
is arbitrary too
Then you’re gone, Follow on,
end your song, roll along.

In all those thoughts, you realize a lot of this is voluntary too
And the seething look in your eyes is out of line with the planetary view
And then you’re gone,
Roll along,
So move on.

New Tomorrow, tender and toothsome
Entangled sorrow
What will you say, when you fall
Out the window, so whimsical?

Then you turn to realize that all of this is sedentary too
And in your thoughts, you realize you’re out of time with little left to use
Then you’re gone, Follow on,
end your song, roll along.

New Tomorrow, tender and toothsome
Entangled sorrow
What will you say, when you fall
Out the window, onto the floor?
Track Name: Dream About Nothing
So you wanna be one thing
I’m telling you dumb things
It all comes down to nothing
And you got to believe it

But there’s something deceivin’
I hear that you’re leaving
I’m telling you one thing
But it’s becoming deceiving

But you dream about nothing
But you dream about nothing

So you wanna be quiet
And you wanna be silent
I’m telling you one thing
I’m telling you one thing

But you dream about nothing
But you dream about nothing

Do, do do do, do do do, do do do,
Do, do do do, do do do, do do do.

I’m loving you more babe,
And you wanna be quiet
I’m telling you one thing
I’m telling you one thing

But you dream about nothing
But you dream about nothing

Do, do do do, do do do, do do do,
Do, do do do, do do do, do do do.
Track Name: Syzygy
ohhhhs

I love you more than one day
Feelings all over the place
You and me divide
I volunteer with a sigh

ohhhhs
Track Name: Immolation
Now the fire sent you far away
Gave you reason to mind
Til your thoughts and your wonder would stray
How the certainties defy

As you lose yourself,
All that you know, is shattered to stone
As you prove yourself
Silent you go, it pilots you home

Hear you running farther down the lane
A thousand reasons you’ll find
Every fall has you under the waves
Let the crucifixion lie.

If you lose yourself
All that you know, has shattered to stone
As you prove yourself
Already gone, it pilots you home

If you lose your way, oh let it out
You will find, oh take me out
Lose your place, oh let them shout
Who decides?

Got you running from the runaways
Just the surface that you’ll grind
Every fall, left you under the waves
All eternity to run away.

If you lose yourself
All that you know, is shattered to stone
As you prove yourself
Already gone, with violence your throne
Track Name: Gold Politique
I felt you wander til you fell under the weight
Of all the veggies down at the mall
I really wonder where you’d go without a string
I’d rather watch you fetching their ball

It was too soon to let you know
I was a fool to let you go
Can’t resist the draw to what you need
I was the fool to set you free

Don’t fall too far away
These tainted hours will fade
The politics of gold are here to stay
As I watched you, one more time you slipped away

I’ve never failed you, now you know under the weight
of all the consequences of sound
I really wondered how you’d get there without me
I’d love to watch you fetching the ball

I was too small to let you know
I’m just a fool to let you go
I was consumed to make you bleed,
Now search with Kings for what you need.

Don’t fall too far away
These tainted hours will fade
Don’t fall too far away
These tainted hours will fade
The politics of gold are here to stay
As I pondered, one more time you slipped away
Track Name: Fire in the Sun
You set fire to the sun,
And aren’t happy til you’ve won
The illusion of the day,
Now all colors cast in Grey

Oooh

Reach into the fire
Crimson calls you home, love
Underneath the tempest
The vision of tomorrow
Wash away the secrets
A little hides away
Looking for tomorrow
The vision calls you home

You set fire to the world
And unrest all boys and girls
You believe it’s all the same
Listen up, it’s on the grave

Oooh

Reach into the fire
Crimson calls you home, love
Underneath the tempest
The vision of tomorrow
Wash away the secrets
A little stain remains
Looking for tomorrow
The vision calls you home
Track Name: Le Monde
You say, one or more,
Will consume all of your brawn
One furlong, You searching
You suit all the children

You say, we’re too gone
Consumed all that is wrong
One furlong, your surfeit
Too soon, all of you gone

You’ll fall over again,
As you listen the stars
Tomorrow, you’ll all fall as one
And you’ll play your role in le monde
You’ll stand, then fall

You say le monde, consumed all that is gone
“And” you say, why move on
Your tongue, loosened upon
For your world, you’ll say
Is tanned, tattered and torn
Undue this, you’ll say,
But who is stretching the zone?
Track Name: Forces
All the forces in your head, They cried,
Horror knows your mind, aha
And how they tease
All the forces in your head, They cried,
Horror owns your kind, aha

And oh, how they tease you, Vortex of sound
Oh, how they reel, round and around and around
Oh, how they tease you, Vortex of sound
Oh, how they reel, turning your feelings around

All the forces in your head, They cried,
Horror owns your mind, aha
And how they tease
All the voices in your head, They cried.
Horror molds your kind, aaah

And oh, how they tease you, Vortex of sound
Oh, how they reel, spinning your feelings around
Oh, how they tease you, Vortex of sound
Oh, how they reel, spinning around and around

Oh, the ruse you found
Oh, That brings you down
Oh the ruse that fills you now
You’ll have your way another day

And oh, how they tease you, Vortex of sound
Oh, how they reel, spinning around and around
Oh, how they tease you, Vortex of sound
Oh, how they reel, spinning around and around
Track Name: Run
You run away to forget
Hide your fears, its over then
You run away for the tears
Hide your love, don’t heed the years

You run away, yes, you run away

Fool for love, an easy bet
Hide the tears, the cigarette
You run away, fools forget
Hide your love, its over there

You run away, yes, you run away

Fool to let you down and doubt your love
Fool to let you go, and doubt your love

Time moves slow, in foolish hands
Turn the tears, its almost there
You run away, fool to guess
Hide your scars, its’ easy when…

You run away, yes, you run away
Track Name: Afterlife
Ah, Ah…

Feelings that you know so well
Life that you lived in vain
Only that you couldn’t tell
Because you locked it all away

In the Afterlife,
Get to feeling right, yeah,
In the Afterlife,
Get to feeling right, yeah

Ah, Ah…

Silence that you know so well
Time that you threw away
If only you could live and tell
Those lives that you lived astray

In the Afterlife,
Get to feeling right, yeah,
In the Afterlife,
Get to feeling right, yeah

Ah, Ah…
Track Name: Soon
In lonely nights, you realize
With the falling tide, you lose yourself
And God was on the line, illusion

Soon,
This will come under the sun,
Soon,
Your “kingdom come”, will come undone
Soon!

In your ocean eyes, life realized
With a deep surprise, you fool yourself
And under fallen times, you lose the line

Soon,
This will come under the sun,
Soon,
Your “kingdom come”, will come undone
Soon!

all of this is hallow…
Track Name: World of Curls
Should have known to follow
Left alone in your mind
What could still be wrong?
Just consumed in your sorrow

I should feel the day
Let the cinders fall to void
I don’t wanna change the world
I just get lost inside your curls

You should still move in time
Take a chance with your crime
And I know when we’ll meet
Light a song in the streets

You should feel the day
that left me with suicidal girls
Well, I don’t wanna change the world
I just get lost inside your curls

We could steal the day
that left me with suicidal girls
Well, I don’t wanna change the world
I just get lost inside your curls
