Who could resist giving a listen to a song with this title?

The early going has that kind of robotic beat and brushes, accompanied by a metal-glitch-melody-hint that one would expect at the ACME robot factory.

People are always “only wanting to protect us” in life, until the United States Supreme Court or a witness being interrogated unfairly at some Congressional hearing says “have you now shame?”.

The repeated vocal sample gets repeated perhaps more often than I would fancy, as if we are trapped in Orwell’s sequel to 1984, when even the names are lost in newspeak.

The sense of space and room in the mix makes it flow nicely. The minimalist repetition works best when you leaven it with sounds like the synth drone that has vaguest hint of strings derivation.

This is a nice bit of fun.
