The Future Limited

HILOBROW’s friend, singer-songwriter and science journalist Jascha Hoffman, is releasing a science fiction music video, for the synth-pop tune “Limited,” from his forthcoming album The Future Limited, today.

The video, directed by John Pavlus, uses clips from classic science fiction movies (including 2001, Robocop, and Tron) to tell a story about a lonely artificial intelligence whose efforts to reach out to its human creators end in tragedy.

Here are the song’s lyrics, exclusive-ish to HiLobrow:

Everything is limited by factors inconceivable, aha
Once you spend a minute with it everything is easy, oh my god
Everything is limited by factors inconceivable, aha
Once you spend a minute with it everything is easy, oh my god

Whatever you can say, there’s nothing left to do
Help is on the way, I’m waiting here with you
But someone’s gotta say: “I like you”

Cincinnati Slim was just a grifter with concupiscent smile
Walk up right behind then he’d tail you like a shadow for a while
Everything was easy til they came an’ put a pistol to my side
Hold on just a minute honey let me keep the mystery alive

Whatever you can do, there’s nothing left to say
I’m waiting here with you and help is on the way,
But someone’s gotta say: “I like you”

Whatever you can say, there’s nothing left to do
Help is on the way, I’m waiting here with you
But someone’s gotta say: “I like you”

Jascha’s album can be preordered at thefuturelimited.com. Check it out!
