about

Atom 3 of 12 in the Protons and Electrons split single series.
Side B is by Thoughts Detecting Machines, AKA: Rick Valentin of the Poster Children.

Rick contributes an excellent guitar track to a future Protons and Electrons release, but most importantly he is part of this series because of what Thoughts Detecting Machines is.

A one man band in the sense of being a self-contained live and recording unit, not in the "bass drum strapped to back and cymbals between legs" sort of way, the way Thoughts Detecting Machines operates has been an inspiration to Team Neutron Friends.

Find a way to say "yes" to awesome opportunities, strip things down to their barest essentials and challenge yourself to dig deeper, try something different and let go of familiar anxieties.

Conan Neutron & the Secret Friends - RECANT!



That ethos will never play down in Sparta
Those ideas will never fly in Rome
Yes, I would call this approach a problem.
No friends here you will act alone
This way of speaking will put you in danger
Those dumb ideas might get you stoned

STONED.

Good or bad it's true, Controversy is my food.
Got a whole lot to say
RECANT!

The choice of paths it lies before
I hope that you are proud of yourself
Philosopher or heretic are the choices
Out of the mainstream, foolish tome
You say you will proudly stand up
The pride it comes before the fall

Good or bad it's true, Controversy is my food.
Got a whole lot to say
RECANT!

Thoughts Detecting Machines - Alllies

Never trust the Perfect King
He’s not as kindly as he seems
You're at his mercy, in his grace
Know the limits, know your place

Easy with a compliment
He’ll make you feel like a prince
And he will promise you the crown
Then pass you over for his own

Allies are shifting all the time
You stand on sand and if you slip
You’re left behind

All eyes are on you day and night
And you'll be judged on a grudge
Not for a crime

Never cross the Bitter Queen
Cause she remembers everything
And when you think you've won her trust
She'll throw you underneath the bus

They will take you everywhere
You’ll get a taste
You'll breathe the air
And you will get used to their ways
And soon become the thing you hate

Allies are never on your side
Unless your interests should happen to align
All lies reveal themselves in time
But you’ll be gone long before you're proven right
