about

Daniel Detroit, Michigan

Daniel is a Detroit-based artist and producer. His new release, Extracolor, is pop music remembered wrong. A wide, missed swing taken at R'n'B, Hip Hop and Electronic that never gets any of those genres right and in the process arrives at something wholly original. It will be released January 23, 2012. ... more

Track Name: Posthuman
What does it mean to be a posthuman man in a posthuman world if I can't go home with you?
To have eyes, have teeth, have a mouth if I can't have you?
What does it mean to have a codebreaking mind if it can't break through to you?
What does it mean to be alive?

What does it mean to be a vibrating being in a molecule sea if I can't get close to you?
To have a satellite feed if I'm 3D looking at 2?
What does it mean to be rowing this boat through a wormhole looking for proof?
What does it mean to be alive?

Out here alone
I say, I say, I say I want to be a part of your world
Thinking of you, you, you
Cause my world starts with yours
You make me want to say, do do do do, do do do do

What does it mean to be a fragmented drive in a hard drive beating in a heartbeat beating on steel?
To say this, say that, mean neither cause I don't have feel?
What does it mean to be a spec in the eye of the dreamer if the dream's not real?
What does it mean to be alive?

What does it mean to be powered by love if I can't plug into you?
What does it mean to be in two different places at the same time touching the truth?
What does it mean to be the most human human if I can't be human to you?
What does it mean to be alive?

Out here alone
I say, I say, I say I want to be a part of your world
Thinking of you, you, you
Cause my world starts where yours does
You make me want to say, do do do do, do do do do
Track Name: Sicko
I could have it all and what did I do?
I could have had it and what did I do?
Well that was then, this is now, this is more than right now
I'm going to be so happy with you

I could be a sicko
I could be the light
We could be in trouble
We could get it right
Dying on the table
lighting up the room
I could be a way in for you

I could be a hero
I could be a thief
I could be your poison
I could set you free
Dying on the table
Lighting up the room
I could be the way to the glory

Burying bullets in the soil beneath our feet
Burying the past cause of what it might mean
Who am i, who are you, who are we but right now?
I'm going to be so happy with you

I could be a sicko
I could be the light
We could be in trouble
We could get it right
Dying on the table
lighting up the room
Headed for our moment of glory

I could be a hero
I could be a thief
I could be your poison
I could set you free
Dying on the table
Lighting up the room
I could be your way to the glory
Track Name: Break Us Up
Never more than when you swore to me
you'd heal the world for me
did I believe in something

Stopped caring what my friends would say
They don't have any faith,
they don't see you the way that I do

So why would you break us
why would you break us
why would you break us up?
(Why would you break us down)
Why would you break us
why would you break us
why would you break us up?
(Why would you break us down)

I planted flowers in my skin for you
Wore this gorilla suit
I had such rare devotion

Wrote a part for you in all my scenes
Wrote you piano themes
I had such sacrificial notions

So why would you break us
why would you break us
why would you break us up?
(Why would you break us down)
Why would you break us
why would you break us
why would you break us up?
(Why would you break us down)

In the middle of a breakup
there's no learning from a breakup
There's no seeing what it all could mean,
how better off you'll be
There's only breakdown
Track Name: Down With You
Lately I just want to get down
(Now we're talking)
Track Name: High With You
I want to get high with you
I want to get high with you
Want to get so high with you
we'll never get low

And when I get high with you
Gonna get so high with you
Gonna get so high with you
we never get low

This world spins down around me every day
They gave me scripts to keep me standing up straight
Don't want to take those pills no more

I want to get high with you
I want to get high with you
Want to get so high with you
we'll never get low

And when I get high with you
Gonna get so high with you
Gonna get so high with you
we never get low

They write these scripts to keep us standing up straight
Don't want to watch those shows no more

I want to get high with you
Track Name: Slave Name
I saw you crying in the chapel
praying through your tears
waiting on the lord
waiting there for years

You said his love was like a sunset
burning through the floor
always disappearing
coming back for more

You're not alone
But you're not like me
You're not a slave
But you're not quite free
You're not at home
but this world is not a home
your name is not your name
You're not alone
and you'll never be

I saw you whirling like a dervish
smiling like a king
flying on your carpet
smoking from a leaf

You said this world was always storming
and that life is but a squall
tearing off your ceiling
breaking down your walls

You're not alone
But you're not like me
You're not a slave
But you're not quite free
You're not at home
but this world is not a home
your names is not your name
You're not alone
and you'll never be

That's my slave name
That's my slave name
Track Name: Split Saber
I'd rather be wrong if you'd rather be right
I'd rather make out with you some other time
some other night

i'd rather get real if you'd rather get fake
i'd rather get down if you'd rather get saved

Soon i'm foaming at the mouth
and barking up a tree
I'm shaking like a leaf
I shall not be released
I'm clinging on to power
and counting down the hours
I want to let it go

It's funny the way you can develop a taste
For writing the laws when you'd rather write songs

It's funny the way I keep stowing away
Sneaking on ships at night, leaving this world in my wake

Soon i'm barking up a tree
and dreaming of the beast
I'm shaking like a leaf
I shall not be released
I'm clinging on to power
and counting down the hours
I want to let it go

I no longer hear the falconer
I no longer hear the falconer
Track Name: Seeker Song
I've been seeking a city that I'll never find
I've been planning an escape from a state of mind
I've been rowing a boat through a sea of light
Been spitting at storms, all bark, no bite

I've been walking on water if I don't look down
learning how to let go, learning how to drown
I've been spending my money on what makes me week
spending all of my hope on impossible dreams

I've been angrier than most
more thoughtful than some
I've been hungry and full
been smart, been dumb
I've been windshield fluid in the super white snow
I've been all dressed up no place to go
