about

"This is the single greatest record ever created. Life changer. I cry even just thinking about it. One day, when another solid gold record is sent into outer space, it will be this record. It will teach the aliens all they need to know about the human race. There's Bobby Steps, and then there's the rest of music."
Rating: 10/10

"Bobby is such an asshole. He needs to get over himself and stop being such a loudmouth. Maybe he should spend more time alone, or at least go back to singing about the trees. Overrated, mediocre at best."
Rating: 2/10

"I want this playing on repeat throughout my wedding, my honeymoon, and my funeral."
Rating: 10/10

"Yawwwn! Boooring! This shit puts me to sleep! I'm twelve."
Rating: 3/10

"This album made me quit crack cold turkey. Erothyme is my drug of choice now. I would be dead by now if it wasn't for this music."
Rating: 12/10

"This new album started out alright. The noodles were certainly adequate, both firm and flexible. Wasn't a fan of the sauce, I feel it drowned out most of the texture. I also feel that sneaking in magic mushrooms without a warning was in poor taste (no pun intended). Also, too salty. Overall I think I will be taking my business to another restaurant."
Rating: 5/10

"I want to warn everyone reading this that Bobby is an evil wizard, hiding behind the disguise of a sensitive young man with feelings. This album was clearly ghost produced, and mixed on a Ouija board. Turn away now while you still have your soul!!!"
Rating: 666/10

"This is my goddess worship music."
Rating: 69/10

"Long, long ago, in a galactic supercluster far far away, a hastily concocted blend of white-boy vocals, digital flatulence from a cheap synthesizer, and the moist sound of spider eggs falling out of the anus of a corpse sweetly caressed my ears into a simultaneously angering and nauseating mixture of loathing, arousal, and shame... Well done."
Rating: 3.14159/10

"I bought this album thinking it was going to be like "Circadia" - so I held out on listening to it until the next time my girlfriend and I were in the bedroom. A half hour later, we broke up and she won't talk to me anymore. Thanks a lot, Bobby."

about

Erothyme Colorado

The Erothyme sound is a majestic blend of overblown hyperbole and meaningless adjectives that actually have nothing to do with music. His tracks land in your ear like a dolphin gracefully diving into the surface of the ocean after doing a triple backflip in front of the setting sun. Some people think that Erothyme doesn't be like he is, but he do. ... more

Track Name: Something Has Changed
(Seeing is Perceiving)
Something has changed, it's all rearranged
(I'm waving while you're leaving)
"I'm only a speck," reality check!
(Here comes another)
Come as you are, show me the scar
(Seeing through each other)
Keep filling me in while you're under my skin

Stoke the fire while the embers are hot
Or it will burn out baby, like it or not.
Better smile for a while and embrace your strife,
Cause it never lasts forever even if it's for life.
Thinking of things so softly implied
Makes the night twice as long and my dreams twice as wide.
Tell me, once you find me, will you let me be me?
Are you trying to bind me, or set me free?

Haven't you heard? I got nothing to hide.
I'll rip my heart open, letcha peek inside.
Lay it down straight, there's no need to pretend.
Th-the words may be difficult to comprehend.
Sometimes the truth is hard to say.
Sometimes the best way to Love is to walk away.
Whatcha gonna tell me when we get to the end?
Thank You For Playing

-Please Try Again-

If I had known
I would have stayed home alone
If I had known
I would have hung up the phone!
If I had known
I would have brought down the tone...
I wish I had known.
It's been a long, long time since I felt at home.

Thank you, thank you for all you've done.
I hope you had fun.
Thank you, thank you for all you've said,
Even though it turned me on my head.
Thank who for who you are:
A bright, bright shining star.

Thank you for just being you.
There's nothing else to do.
Track Name: Flyin Lion
I'm a flyin lion, migratory
information giver -
a wordy bird with messages
and stories to deliver.
Despite every attempt I've made
at being conscientious,
there be haters in the shade
who wish to label me pretentious.

I'm not ashamed that I
have been around the block.
Pass along the flame,
it's a race against the clock.
It would be insane
to keep the knowledge under lock,
so I'm relinquishing the stock of talk
to go with all the walk.

Everything that I can do
to get what I perceive as true
to travel through the air to you
is worth the pain that I've been through.
There is nothing I prefer
over a word that is conferred
with the intention of prevention of
your self-destruction, sir.

If we can all agree to see
that we're all sons and daughters
with a need for love and freedom
and a thirst for air and water,
we can readily acknowledge
that we have a lot in common,
and I can shut my face
and let my fingers do the talkin'.

Oooh, tell it like it is!
You get what you give!
Track Name: The Giving Funk
I test the water with my fingers
I found it far too cold to linger
I feel icy, the surface freezing solid
Sends me chills, no matter what you call it

What remains of yesterday?
We already gave it all away!
It all comes back around, they say...
We already gave it all away!

Just a fat lip
Another sad song
Just a bad trip
Won't last long

She test the water with her fingers
She find it far too hot to linger
She's already brought me to a boil
Now I'm rising softly from the soil

Beginning from the ground today...
We already gave it all away!
It all comes back around, they say...
We already gave it all away!

Now I'm a mile from the ground again
Don't let me talk myself back down again

Come around again
Come around again
Track Name: I Don't Like This Song
I don't like this song
I don't even like my face
And I really don't know how long
I can stay here in this place
I don't like my name
I kind of like my eyes
Surprise, surprise
They say it's all the same
if you look deep enough inside

I don't like this song
I can't even stand my face
And I don't know how long
I can stay here in this place
I shiver when I hear my name
But I kind of like my eyes
Surprise, surprise
They say it's all the same
if you look deep enough inside

They tell me they like the tunes
The tender-hearted charm
Watch them as they swoon
Into each others' arms

I heard you like the sound
Sends eros through my heart
I watch you dance around
While I tear myself apart
Track Name: This is Supposed to Hurt
Baby, that song wasn't meant for you,
but I think it says somethin'
if it still rings true.
The sentiment is overdue.
Now I'm singin' just to
get me through
the day.
I only wanna say the truth;
I'm not tryna throw dirt.
If you find it painful to listen to,
maybe it's supposed to hurt.

Maybe it's supposed to hurt.

Track Name: Brief Perches
It isn't safe to go alone
But I still do it all the time
All of my memories, all the love I've known
Does me no good if it's only in my mind

I want to believe it's not always the same
I really thought this could last
Figured you wouldn't ever love in vain
You figured I wouldn't get attached

It isn't safe to fall in love
But nothing less is worth my time
Still it seems every angel's touch
Earns me one hundred lonely nights

I really value the time we shared
Now I'm twisting your arm for the time of day
I can't make you care
Maybe I'll do less harm if I fly away
Track Name: My Main Squeeze in the Sky
Days like this
I want to say goodbye
So I can go be with
My main squeeze in the sky

But something tells me that
Even if I try
She'll probly shoot me down
Just like when she was alive

I'm not just bitter
I'm also bittersweet
I'll take all of my lovin' and
Put it in the beat

I'm not just bitter
I'm also bittersweet
I'll take all of my lovin' and
Put it in the beat
Track Name: Better Endings
I dove into your fire
and it burns, burns, burns.
With all of these memories
you'd think that we
would have learned.

I dove into your waters
and I drowned, drowned, drowned.
For a moment I believed that you
would follow me to
higher ground.

Is it chosen?
Is it fated?
Is this good or bad for me?

Is the story
the way we made it,
or the way it had to be?

Can we write a
better ending?
Not another tragedy...

Tell me that I'm not the only one
to sense the gravity
(so dramatically).
Track Name: Gratuitous Grace IV (As the Dust Settles)
Find me in the spaces
between the stars above.
Ever since I saw the light
I've been starving for the love.

I've gone beyond all measure,
always tightening my grasp.
It only makes the treasure
slip more quickly through the cracks.

So I'll take this opportunity,
while it's running through me,
to commit this feeling to rhyme:
apprehension of Eternity
has this funny tendency
to fade with the passage of time.

While I watch the world in motion
and I wonder where you've flown,
I'll recount my many blessings
just to know I'm not alone.

No, no, no
No I'm not alone
