about

My Skin So Thin is an album about loss, distance, and the invisible walls we build around ourselves to keep us out of harms reach, but ultimately leave us isolated and alone.



This album was created using one copy of LSDJ and one prosound modded 1989 Nintendo Game Boy, with post production through Reason.

about

Solid State Disaster St. Louis, Missouri

Solid State Disaster is an electronic music project from Heath Aldrich. Coming from a primarily punk and metal background, his style of chipmusic is darker than most chip artists, and the inclusion of vocals really set it apart. "The limitations of the hardware have allowed me explore aspects of my music that I wouldn't have come across with just a guitar in my hand." ... more

Track Name: A Million Miles
It feels like you are a million miles away
Drifting further like a satellite in space
It feels like you are a million miles away
Even though I am so close to you

The game goes on, it never ends
The best thing we can hope for is
A new beginning
Left alone to rebuild by ourselves
But there is so many pieces

It feels like you are a million miles away
Drifting further like a satellite in space
It feels like you are a million miles away
Even though I am so close to you

Why must we keep this up?
It never ends
My friend this goes on
To the bitter end

It feels like you are a million miles away
Drifting further like a satellite in space
It feels like you are a million miles away
Even though I am so close to you
Track Name: SLIFD
When was the last time that you
Drove too far down north Grand?
Found yourself in a neighborhood
That even black people are afraid to live in.
Have you ever dodged a bullet
Living on a state street? Yeah
When was the last time that
You said something got to change?

Saint Louis is fucking dead
Let’s bring it back to life

Who do you know that is
Addicted to the sting of the needle?
Or do you turn a blind eye
And search for answers in the back of your bible?
Do you sit up high judging
All the people that didn’t leave the city?
While your daughter gets molested by
Her uncle in your house in west county.

Saint Louis is fucking dead
Let’s bring it back to life

So much for the little people
The weak won’t inherit the Earth

Saint Louis is fucking dead
Let’s bring it back to life
Track Name: Broken Machines (Part 2)
Licking these wounds
They taste so sweet
The mask I wear
Makes me complete
I have this cancer inside of me
I am so sick of my circuitry

And I’ve never felt like this before
My skin so thin, my muscles weak
I have never felt like this before
I am so sick of my circuitry

Always trying
Never winning
I keep on crawling
As my faith betrays me
We are all born broken machines
I’m a broken machine

The walls they are
Closing in on me
I have lost my eyes
Now I can’t see
Death is the door
And I’m the key.
I am so sick of my circuitry

And I’ve never felt like this before
My skin so thin, my muscles weak
I have felt like this before
I am so sick of my circuitry

Always trying
Never winning
I keep on crawling
As my faith betrays me
We are all born broken machines

I am a broken machine
Track Name: What The Devil Brought Home (Feat. Brooks Bracken)
Up on the hill, the roads
Twist and they turn
The passages freeze over
Entombing all passengers
Into the darkness
Black as your soul
A beacon of light
That swallows you whole

So how do you leave?
How do you get where you need to go?
When your only ride is
What the devil brought home

Show me the future
As I shiver and shake
Can't you see I'm working?
How Much can one man take?
A very willful boy
Beyond any doubt
A bat to the skull
Wendy let me out

So how do you leave?
How do you get to where you need to go?
When your only ride is
What the devil brought home
How do you know?
Don't open the door
The carpet, the floor
And the one that you love is
What the Devil Brought home

Into the night the plot
thickens and it stirs
So bury the hatchet
Like a good caretaker
Behold the darkness
Black as the snow
A maze of the mind
That swallows you whole

So how do you leave?
How do you get to where you need to go?
When your only ride is
What the devil brought home
How do you know?
Don't open the door
The carpet, the floor
And the one that you love is
What the Devil Brought home
Track Name: To The End Of The World
I look at the sky
And all I see is fire
I close my eyes
And scream this war is a liar

I would have walked with you
To the end of the world

You walked to the sun
And saw me crawling out the window
I called out “you’re the one”
And begged to you
Please don’t go

I would have walked with you
To the end of the world

I used to see you standing there
Right next to me
But you’re gone
You were wrong

I would have walked with you
To the end of the world

I look to the sky
And all I see is fire
I close my eyes
Because now I’m alone

I would have walked with you
To the end of the world
