From across the dry ice, I see her pale face

Hair so black & streaked in neon green

Light blue lipstick on her wet seductive lips

She is the most beautiful I have ever seen


High tech, low life


She beckons me to come closer to her face

I stare into her moist vampire style eyes

Stockings black & ripped along her calf

I run my hands up & down her silken thighs


High tech, low life


The DJ cracks open another track

The angry beat hits like a heart attack

In the crowd among the high & drunk

Is a predatory cyberpunk


The DJ kicks out another track

The manic vocal is like a brain hijack

In the crowd among the high & drunk

Is a solitary cyberpunk


She slowly teases me with her studded tongue

We're unaware of the dancing bodies around us

The bass pounds & increases our tight caress

I need to have her, I know I shouldn't, but I must


High tech, low life


We slip out into the back room for some privacy

She takes me like I have never been taken before

When I wake up, she has left me alone & gone

I've lost her to the pulsating energy of the dance floor


High tech, low life

    She may have left you but surely those wonderful memories will be forever with you.

      It was 15 years ago. During my own cyberpunk years. We had just had our new track played in a club in Amsterdam & I was rather intoxicated.


    • orchidee

      Oohh, should I meet her too? Will it be too much for me?! lol.

      • Unsub

        she would have eaten you alive

        Wow! Vivid and engaging !
        Strangely enough, I really liked this one very much! My imagination took me places where perhaps I shouldn’t go! These lyrics truly captivated my attention.

        Some of my favorites phrases that enhanced the reading of your lyrics...

        ‘seductive lips’
        ‘her vampire style eyes’
        ‘The bass pounds & increases our tight caress’

        She’s like a drug.

        ‘I need to have her, I know I shouldn’t, but I must’

        Once she’s done, she moves on to her next victim.

        ‘High tech, low life’

        Now just imagine...

          hope you are keeping safe & well.

          I'm currently writing new material for the band & it brought back memories of the night we had our track 'Glass' premiered at a CyberGoth club in Amsterdam.

          The pounding bass was our bass line written by me!

          Yes High Life, Low Tech works well & when we record it I may well alter that line throughout. It will be a robotic or heavily vocoded voice chanting that line.

          Good write my friend. Maaaaan i was into that scene as well. Memories are a stirring!

          • Unsub


            my band is that genre & I just can't get enough of it. Can't wait to return to Amsterdam or Berlin to re-live those memories.

            Thanks as always,


            • Saxon Crow

              Nowadays I'm more into folk!

              I used to be in a band as well more rock n indie though

              Intense and provocative,
              Woman after my own heart, of course
              I’m too shy for such encounters!

              Great Write!!!!

              • Unsub


                I thought I was too shy too but sometimes you have to just go with it.

                Nice one Unsub, got to the second verse and had to go for a lie down, ime at a funny age you know! , Bill

                • Unsub


                  you watch your blood pressure! I'll add a 'Bill' extreme material warning next time for you!!

                    Ime ok now, bin on Tha Valium, lol

                    Strong rhythms and imagery, but personally, I would vary the tone. But that's just me, of course. Blue is more blue against orange and so on.

                    • Unsub


                      thanks for reading & commenting. I thought I had varied the tone as the verses are a changed tone from the chorus & also the little one liner separating verses. I guess it will be more obvious when recorded. I do appreciate your visit; thanks,


                    • LAWLESS

                      Even though the thought of you having a tryst with a cool punk chick makes me want to hurl, I do believe this one would be a fucking kick-ass song.

                      • Unsub


                        I believe you!


                      • Santita

                        What an atmosphere you've created. Thick with the punk-club vibe, vivid and engrossing scene. Great cadence.
                        I truly enjoyed reading a unique theme like this. Refreshing!

                        • Unsub


                          appreciate your visit. I am about to re-embark on the whole scene as we get nearer releasing our new album. Maybe I'll bump into my cyberpunk again!
