about

Thinking Machines will release their new album Extension Chords this winter. They have spent the past 2 years working tirelessly on the record and have expanded on the 2 guitar attack heard on their previous record Work Tapes. Extension Chords is a return to form so to speak as it bridges the gap between the expansive space rock of their first album Dream in Lo Fi and the post punk new wave of A Complete Record of Urban Archaeology. Fans of those earlier records should be pleasantly surprised by the space-metal prog-punk psychedelia found here. This will be one of your favorite records of the year.

Track Name: The Squid
Drown the squid limb by limb
Track Name: Gozu
Plug you in, charge you up, your dead battery
I connect to you while you're sleeping
I feel your spine, here you are, echo skeleton
You divide but I'm not your maker

She sighed as she realized
There was a fault in the line that connects the extension chords

Pull the plug, dressed to kill, you know words and I know guilt
Feel the eyes watching as your dreaming
And you awake, find me there, same as always you don’t care
Make a mess and go back to sleeping

The road was old, the road was cold
It forked many times, many miles ago
The interchange and interstates
of our being saturate
the pavement stains that lie in wait
They know we've seen our better days
The gasoline beneath our feet
awaits the spark of our humanity
The road was old, the road was cold
It forked many times, many miles ago

Pull the plug, dressed to kill, you know words, I know guilt
Terrorized by your plan for revenge
Pull the plug, dressed to kill, you know words, I know guilt
Terrorized by my own invention
Track Name: Crisis
Another day of infinite drag the time seems to lag it's catching up
Right now we're somewhere somehow emitting no sound and freaking out

We're in crisis and we like it

Another day and it's still the same
The future has been delayed
Seem stuck in an endless phase
Mind has already been erased

We're in crisis and we like it
I got a song I'd sing you but I won't
you only hear when I'm singing the wrong notes

You Say
You Like
When We
Don’t Try
Another day of infinite drag the time seems to lag it's catching up
You Say
You Like
To win
The fight
Right now we're somewhere somehow emitting no sound and freaking out
Track Name: Lunge
You heard my answer
Intense with certainty
It brought forth anger
You paused and lunged at me

Brains in blindness
Have no need for eyes
Crazy ideas
Hold that thought in mind

I respond quickly
And catch you off your guard
I made my mind up
To stress your weaker parts

Brains, brains that are blind
Have no need for us
Track Name: Kilowatt
I'm singing a song with extension chords
And thinking about it so take it slow
To where I began, I've gone too far
Feeling strong but now I'm out of phase

In these conditions there are ways of never leaving

The fever was so strong but gone astray
I'm taking you back but you're never gonna change

Take what you want and honestly what you thought
Changed my mind and all this time I was in the dark
Take what you need from me while I'm here
I don't need anything to bring you down cause I'm not ready to fall

In these conditions there are ways of never leaving
I can't seem to find my way through your reasons
Track Name: Lillian
Frozen frame of your life
Stare at it for a time
It moved, must have been something that I forgot you did

Your life can illustrate and form to your display
Frozen frame, you're insane

Formed a line is it straight
A formed life isn't strange

Look, your face in the past
Its cracked, broken glass
You have little, little left to lend so give it up
Track Name: The Ghost
Can not resist
Look at new ways to find it
Be sure you don't
Copy any old line

Means that it's gone
Fade into dark
There's reasons it's wrong
Can't think straight

Had an Idea
Use what ever you find here
Repeat and replay
Steal it from your own kind
Track Name: Sophia
Wait for the violence to start

Wait for the violence to come
It spreads it's fire across the earth
It seems that way to me
Show me the gore and the blood
The flames and the flood
The smokey plumes
The dead stars that fall from the sky

From six till nine
Those hentai eyes
All the dead stars fall from the sky
Please stay with me tonight

I loved you first
Before anyone
I hear your words
They addict me to the wrath
Show me the gore and the blood
The flame's and the flood
The smokey plumes
The dead stars that fall from the sky
Track Name: Wallace
I need some money
So i can sleep tonight
The milk and honey
Of candlelight

Is this really my life
Are you really my friend
Nothing is black and white
Is this really the end

Wallace can touch the sun
He thinks that he can find
A clue or a smoking gun
To shift his frame of mind
It's easier said then done
The glare will leave him blind
Dead when the stars align

My needs accompany
A gentlemans pride
I'm a quick study
On borrowed time

He thinks the he can find
The glare will leave him blind
Track Name: Verb
I want to see your face
I want you to know i found out
You had a good disguise
Saw it in your eyes
I found out

I want to say what has not been said but i can't cause you're alive
I want to burn what you haven't read that's okay cause you're alive
Track Name: Doom.React.Destroy
Doom.
The space expands
Faster than we can hold
All that we control
The stress demands
More then we can stand
All our fears in tow

React.
Such a cold reaction
to the thing that you love
We had something good
Waves of fire come back and scorch the setting sun

Just a chord reaction
turn your back on your love
I will follow suit
Lapping flame burns skin and boils up the blood

All the time when you turn on your love
Waves of fire come back and scorch the setting sun

Till the time you should feel overcome
Lapping flame burns spine, a chord reaction


Destroy.
We hang ourselves from extension chords
Hovering inches from deaths door
Gravity weighs us down
Down with our fears in tow

The space explodes
Fears in tow
We've lost control
