Description
I was at work late at night in Manhattan on the 6th floor. It was raining. I was very tired and I turned out my office light to go. I looked outside of my huge floor-to-ceiling window and saw a girl across the way an another office sitting, staring motionless at her computer. She seemed frozen in time.

She Is Ready For The Call
©2011 skunkwrx


Staring into her small screen
Heart sinks and the rain is washing
But it doesn’t even bother her
When it starts to smother her
Window onto the wall
Head raised to the pain and saying

She is ready for the call
(I think she is)
She is ready for the call
(I think she is)
She is ready for the call
Just another machine praying

The boxes stay the same
But the names are always changing
Years falling like the rain
Gears crying sounds like singing

She is ready for the call
(I think she is)
She is ready for the call
(I think she is)
She is ready for the call
Just another machine praying
Just another machine praying
Praying

sweet
cool story. i've had that exact same experience. that picture always seems like a spooky template of modern life. like what they'll someday put in a museum to show our 8 greats grandchildren how we lived. this tune is a nice summary of the feeling. very empty. i like the 'machine praying' line. cool idea. 'the boxes stay the same/but the names are always changing' could refer to the cubicle/building or to the people. i'll be thinking about this one all day. thanks for the music and the ideas.

Interesting mix of low-fi and hi-fi. Cool vibe and clever lyrics. The instruments leap out of the headphones. Enjoyed. Regards, Peter.

This is cool! I really like the vocal effects on this one. To me, it adds a very interesting magnetic field to the whole track. Enjoyed!

Pocket-sized gem.
Machines praying -- good one, says a lot. Great build as the bkg ambience makes its intro on the second verse. Short but inspired. I almost expected this song to burst open from the megaphone/telephone sound into a giant mid-tempo arena rocker. That it doesn't just makes this a little pocket-sized gem.
