Eight Bit Tiger

4 albums

Eight Bit Tiger is an electronic dance duo from Chicago composed of the Widman brothers, Erik and Kent, and is the new side project to the brothers’ indie rock outfit Love in October. The experiment began 15 years ago when the brothers started playing music together in a bedroom in northern Sweden and has mutated into a radioactive sonic isotope.

The music is influenced by 70s funk and 80s synth-pop, taking notes from artists like Michael Jackson, while
borrowing the pop sensibility of Peter, Bjorn, and John, and mixing in the dance element of bands like Daft Punk. There is also the distinct vintage pop vibe of acts like Prince, New Order, and Blondie that harkens to a
different sonic era.

Lyrics:

Step it up You can’t walk back ‘cause the sound makes you feel like you belong Tell your best friends, they were wrong Tell you mother, you belong On the dance floor with your bottle of cheap perfume Protect yourself from me and you We don’t move, we don’t care, we don’t feel like lovers do Protect yourself from the truth We don’t move, we don’t feel, we don’t dance like lovers do Don’t let go Of the night ‘till you found what was in your heart Tell your best friends, they were wrong Tell you mother, you belong On the dance floor with bell bottoms and cheap perfume Protect yourself from me and you We don’t move, we don’t care, we don’t feel like lovers do Protect yourself from the truth We don’t move, we don’t feel, we don’t dance like lovers do

Everybody is in my face  Everybody is way too slow  Everybody is feeling great  Everybody can feel the flow  Everybody is in my face  Everybody is way too slow  Everybody is in my space  Everybody just let me go  Everybody is in my face  Everybody will take it slow  Everybody is in my face  Everybody just let me go  Just let me go  Everybody is in my face  Everybody is way too slow  Everybody can change their place  Everybody can take control  Everybody is in my space  Everybody is way too slow  Everybody is in my face  Everybody just let me go  Just let me go

Lyrics:

Cameo  Look sharp be reckless  It is so typical  Cameo  Follow your instinct  Just don't forget it's all or nothing  Say what you say  oh it's now or never  The damage is done  forget the tries  I know this will just take time  for me to say...  Cameo  Shake something loose, you never loose, let me down  it is controversial  Cameo  Solo, so long, so dated  Just don't forget it's all or nothing

Lyrics:

I think it's oh so typical  Your love is so symmetrical  I think I thought, I thought it through  Conquer conquest take over you  Overpower mind and body every winter  Look into an empty bottle for adventure  I think it's oh so typical  Your love is oh so typical  They say you've got all my numbers  I read them back and I wonder  Why you left from my apartment  And left my heart in the darkness  They say you've got all my numbers  Watch the playback to discover  Memories trapped in compartments  Words paraphrased in the artwork  Time, if all we had was time  We would me a little slower now  Baby move a little slower now  You want more more more  More from me now

Lyrics:

Seven ways to break apart from me  A paper bag is not good enough for this breath  Shore to shore we're the safest bet, aren't we?  What's the point of growing up when we can't?  These streets don't speak to you and me  I'm burning out on weekend scenes  These streets don't speak to you and me  Burning out on weekends...  Little words and forget-me-nots on me  I'm just a waste of common sense and ideals  Coast to coast we're the safest best, aren't we?  Growing up while burning down without dreams  I'm allright  This last time  Without you  I'm allright  Without you  With all your friends  They'll never stand a chance  Now they're dead  With all your friends  They'll never stand a chance  For one last dance  For one last dance...

Lyrics:

It doesn't matter what I say  'cause the words are always wrong  It doesn't matter what I do  but you like it  Spinning on our heads and wonder  why the world would stop for us  Did you ever stop and wonder  why you like it  You say I am the best you'll have  Welcome to our world  Imaginary world  We go on and on for days  spinning on our every whim  Catching up on all the talk  with imaginary friends  Climbing out of our shells  climb into ourselves  Try to aim for our hearts  just to miss again  You say I am the best you'll have  Love, for this moment...

Lyrics:

Looking on a winter’s eve through the dark  Waiting for the street lights to shine through my heart  So slow  I go  I go  Oslo  Walk Home  Oh no!  Oslo  Don’t Go  Stumble on, singing songs to the night  Thought I would find love, but it found someone else tonight  So slow  I go  I go  So slow  Walk home  Oh no!  Olso  Don’t go  I go  So slow  I go  So Slow  Hey Hey  Go get you now  Hey Hey Hey  Walk along, singing songs to the night credits

Lyrics:

Tell me about this  Play me one more song  It's oh so sad and dull  Tell me what I missed  Tell me what went wrong  It's oh so sad and dull  And I don't want this life  (no I don't want this)  I don't want this life...  We got it wrong  I'm scared of the difference in our thoughts  Everything is broken when you're gone  I am scared, I am scared, I am scared of these thoughts  I'm a bit of everything now  We got it wrong  I can't deal with the distance anymore  You break me to pieces and glue me up  'cause this heart can't be shattered anymore  I'm melodrama and medicine now credits

Lyrics:

So is this it?  Is this our mass destruction?  I think it could be  It could be our last party  It's not the reason why I break  It's not the colors that you take  It's not the photos on the wall  Somebody please just help me  I'm running form me  I'm running from all my problems  I think I could be  I think I could be somebody  It's not the words that I can't say  It's not my heart that you must break  It's not the lack of absent cause  It's not the feeling we're so small  It's not your fault  It's 'cause we were doomed from the start  It's not your fault  Somebody please just help me

Waiting on the dark  Voices in my head  Eating at my thoughts  Working on the plan  But haven’t you heard  My story is in reverse  Haven’t you heard  These are the times  These are the times  When you are alone  Haven’t you heard  These are the times  These are the times  When you are alone  Haven’t you heard  These are the times  These are the times  When you are so low

Memories and photographs Vivid dreams the take me back again Through the pain and all the tears We’re shaped by all our deepest fears and doubts All the times that we have spent All the times I never can forget Though the road is long my friend I will never let you down, just pull my feet back on the ground Pull the Lasso You’ll miss me Never ending is the change Never will we ever be the same Words and words are part of me But words can never describe how I feel We have lost our better days Chasing all the dreams that got away Though the road is long my friend I will never let you down Just pull me and pull me and pull me back now Pull the Lasso You’ll miss me

Lyrics:

One two three on the drum beat Gotta work, gotta work, but I wanna break free Don’t think I can’t think, just because I’m a machine To me, life is real… I doesn’t matter at all, whether I am a robot I doesn’t matter at all, I still feel like a human At nights I dream about the stars in the sky You gotta try to break free, because there’s more to this life I got this feeling deep deep inside That I am stuck in this robot life So let the music play on through the night, it goes on… I got this feeling I cannot describe I got the moves backed up on my hard drive So let the party go on all night, it goes on… Praise sunshine, give me life I believe you need someone to love You gotta try to feel what goes on in your heart I got this feeling deep deep inside That I am stuck in this robot life So let the music play on through the night, it goes on… I got this feeling I cannot describe I got the moves backed up on my hard drive So let the party go on all night, it goes on… Can’t feel my sensors Invalid syntax Reboot my OS Set mode to “human” Can’t feel my sensors Can’t feel my sensors…NO! I got this feeling deep deep inside That I am stuck in this robot life So let the music play on through the night, it goes on… I got this feeling I cannot describe I got the moves backed up on my hard drive So let the party go on all night, it goes on… It is the reason I dream all the time Dance like a machine all the night To set me free from my code, I would like to move on… There must be more than the bits and the bytes Do what I’m told do not what I like So I will dance through the night, I go on… This is the robot life

Lyrics:

Talk, talking to myself Talking about the things I thought I knew I try to make believe Oh baby just because Every time I dream of you I fall I fall into your arms Can you feel my heart? Can you feel it beating? Memories will last forever Time just stops when we’re together Baby for the weekend Wrap ourselves in conversation As we head out on vacation Baby for the weekend Why? Why did you have to go? Don’t you know it breaks my heart It breaks me every single time Time to make believe Time to make myself believe in you That you are always near Closer to my heart Without you I would fall apart I believe that you would come and rescue me from me You always were the one the one I wanted Memories will last forever Time just stops when we’re together Baby for the weekend Wrap ourselves in conversation As we head out on vacation Baby for the weekend Time to come home In my arms you belong Time to come home Memories will last forever Time just stops when we’re together Baby for the weekend Wrap ourselves in conversation As we head out on vacation Baby for the weekend Travel to Milan together We’re rock stars we’ll last forever Baby for the weekend Wrap ourselves in conversation As we head out on vacation Baby for the weekend
