bloodphoenix7 I have been into Android Lust for over a decade and I couldn't be more thrilled for them and their success over the years.. This album is just as brilliant as any of the old stuff, but these songs are unique and compelling into their own without being familiar with the past. Shikee is a siren goddess. Favorite track: Saint Over.

Styxu Enchanting and vivid. The album takes you on trip through desires of the soul and body and their inevitable confilct. It's personal, nostalgic, creepy and sexy at the same time. Android Lust is one of a kind. Favorite track: Rub Me Raw.

I am the water beneath your steps I am the fire on your breath I am the air the giver of life I am the earth the keeper of hives I am a soldier a needy hand I am a seeker of the promised land An occasional taker A memory bearer A tally keeper The intimate stranger We are bound we must be found We are the way to heaven We live in the dark but we breathe as one We must come together I am a digger in questions hide I seek out answers that fit my doubting mind A constant thinker A judgement maker Unconscious sleeper The intimate stranger We are bound we must be found We are the way to heaven We're still in the dark but we breathe as one We must come together I am water I am fire I am aether I am your answer I am the seeker The righteous soldier The unbeliever The intimate stranger

Rub Me Raw 03:10
Since you I met I don't know how My reasons have failed This thing I've allowed Your crystal fey heart It's easy to crack So I tread with care Lest I come under attack Won't you smother me till I am sick of you Crush me till I scream for you Rub me till I bleed for you Rub me raw I am dizzy with speed Split in two I am sewn by a thread And stuck with glue My fingers they stroke The skin of angels I am burned by their heat I was marked before I fell Won't you smother me till I am sick of you Crush me till I scream for you Rub me till I bleed for you Rub me raw Burn me till I beg for you Strip me so I sink in you Rub me till I bleed for you Rub me raw

Saint Over 03:48
I've given you chance after chance after chance after chance You keep failing I told you once, told you twice, even thrice, a hundred times I am no mind reader Just say it to me like it is what you mean And what you feel in English This reading in between the lines is better done And a lot more fun between the sheets I sat through time after time after time after time Your little stories Tried to show my concern while I thought About my cat and my laundry Just give it to me straight and hard rough and raw Sick and twisted down and dirty I told you over and over and over and over You don't hear me Do you even know The ones you love to blame We're just trying our best the best the best we can You're not the saint you claim

I wanna feel good With my personal god Tell me what to do Tell me who to love I see you walking With the weight of the world On your shoulders Let me ease it I wanna look good For my personal god Tell me how to feel Tell me who to hurt I see you hiding Deep down in your hole I would lend a hand You can trust me I wanna show you My personal god I've been hiding him Hiding in the hole I wanna feel good With my personal god I wanna look good For my personal god

It's on You 02:44
Did I burn your hand It's on you Did I steal your land It's on you Was I talking down It's on you Did I hide did I run Did you hear my speech Oh glory Did you see my rage Oh glory Do you believe in anger Oh glory It's the only thing that matters We're forever apart But the blame's on you So I broke your heart But the blame's on you I know I am in denial But the blame's on you I see just fine through Texan blinders I will do as I please Oh glory Rewrite history Oh glory Shout and stomp my feet Oh glory Show me no wound I swear I will scream Am I causing you harm It's on you I've got my rich boy charm It's on you I'll stay or walk as I want It's on you damn you It's my way or no way We're forever apart But the blame's on you So I broke your heart But the blame's on you I know I am in denial But the blame's on you I never cared enough to work it out

The Return 01:36
I wanna stop this war Didn't know I was lost I am ready to make my way home And stop this war What was I fighting for I am ready to make my way home

A New Heaven 04:42
Is this a new kind of heaven It's upto me They say that heaven is right here right beside the lake If you drink from it you will know the secret but you must be brave I searched for years and years and many men fell on the way Each step on this road to god leads me back to where I lay Are we the ones We're seeking under this sun The say just let it go and let it be it'll fall in place Watch yourself as you dive to the lows you know and the depths you crave Making love to my past has left me cold alone and grey I've been knocking on the door of god let me in so long I prayed Are we the ones We're seeking under this sun Are we the ones Dig see what's underground Is this a new kind of heaven Feeling my way I must be returning Is this a new kind of heaven Feeling my way I must be returning Are we the ones We're seeking under this sun Are we the ones Dig see what's underground

Into the Sun 03:36
Dig deep dig Under around Scratch peel dig Dig beneath the sound Dig deep dig Dig under the earth Did deep dig Dig for your jewels and your pearls I pray for my mother I pray for my lover I pray for a sister who's struck by the sun May you through water May you through fire May you through aether reach the one you want Dig deep dig Under flesh and bones Dig until you bleed Under breath under stone Dig deep dig Dig past all of your lines Set the animal free Know it's his yours hers and mine I pray for my mother I pray for my lover I pray for a sister who's struck by the sun May you through water May you through fire May you through aether reach the one I pray for my mother I pray for my lover I pray for my sister their travels be done Into the heart of A brightness so blinding As you make your way and journey back into the sun
9.
One World 03:58
One world to another One day we discover What's to become What have we done Pray we may recover One world to another One day we discover One heart to another One glance feeds the other One chance we give the giver To return to mother

Flow flow flow Where does it go I had gone so high Now fallen low Flow flow flow I thought it stuck But it came apart So I let it go Flow flow flow I had a heart Where did it go I laid it bare The animal I know Clawed many holes Let it drain To the river below Flow flow flow

I wanna feel good With my personal god Tell me what to do Tell me who to love I see you walking With the weight of the world On your shoulders Let me ease it I wanna look good For my personal god Tell me how to feel Tell me who to hurt I see you hiding Deep down in your hole I would lend a hand You can trust me

about

A journey through the psyche of man, as man realizes the futility of living in the grips of ego and surrenders to seek answers within.

The Human Animal is the fourth studio release from Android Lust, brainchild of NYC based singer/songwriter/producer Shikhee. It comes four years after the release of Devour, Rise and Take Flight, a track from which garnered a spot on the official Navy NCIS soundtrack album. The Human Animal sees Shikhee collaborating with her live band for the first time in a studio release, giving it an unexpected organic warmth while maintaining her trademark machine edge that cuts uncomfortably if you dare to let it in.

Known for her uncompromising ear for fresh sounds, Shikhee scoured the NYC streets and subways with a portable recorder, collecting sounds that found their way as rhythmic and melodic elements throughout the album.

There is also a bonus remix of "God In The Hole" by Jerome Dillon (formerly of Nine Inch Nails, nearLY), and Anthony Baldino - an atmospheric opus that is a chilling end to the journey.
