He found the girl with electric lips He flipped his lid when she gave him the slip Radiated by the afterglow Overwhelmed he couldn’t finish the show Uh oh, uh oh, uh oh Disintegration She elevated up above the place She must have been from outer space And now there’s no turning back She nearly gave him a panic attack – ack – ack – ack Uh oh, uh oh, uh oh Disintegration He found his girl with atomic kiss He flipped his lid gave when she gave him the trip Radiated by the Afterglow Now they’re burning bright in stereo Uh oh, uh oh, uh oh Disintegration

Telephone 04:05
We went the distance For the Resistance Got a message said you need our assistance From a satellite, in the dead of night Your transmission said something wasn’t quite right We tried you on the telephone The only sound was a dial tone You’re out there and you’re all alone The lights are on but no one’s home Sending a signal, sending a signal, sending a signal to you (I keep calling) Sending a signal, sending a signal, sending a signal to you (I keep calling) We went the distance For the Resistance Got a message said you need our assistance From a satellite, in the dead of night Your transmission said something wasn’t quite right We tried you on the telephone The only sound was a dial tone You’re out there and you’re all alone The lights are on but no one’s home Sending a signal, sending a signal, sending a signal to you (I keep calling) Sending a signal, sending a signal, sending a signal to you (I keep calling)

We are perfect strangers Synthesized celluloid danger Victims of a new regime Got to keep our fingernails clean We are perfect strangers Ignoring signs of danger Spare parts in the work machine Got to keep our records real clean We went to the shopping mall Just so we could have it all It’s never enough - It’s never enough - It’s never enough - It’s never enough We are perfect strangers Synthesized celluloid danger Victims of a new regime Got to keep our fingernails clean We are perfect strangers Ignoring signs of danger Spare parts in the work machine Got to keep our records real clean We went to the shopping mall Just so we could have it all It’s never enough - It’s never enough - It’s never enough - It’s never enough We are perfectly Strange

Disconnect 03:30
Shouting out your point of view Got nothing better to do Positive vibes are immune to you Only one cure for someone like you I disconnect from you Don’t give a damn what you say or do You said you’re sorry – it wasn’t true I disconnect from you – I disconnect from you Live inside your liquid screen Where no one can hear you scream Negative vibes in the words you say Spreading your hate every night and day I disconnect from you Don’t give a damn what you say or do You said you’d change – You never do I disconnect from you – I disconnect from you It’s so easy to unfollow you – It’s so easy to unfollow you – It’s so easy to unfollow you Only one cure for a troll like you Yeah Yeah Yeah Disconnect from you! - Yeah Yeah Yeah Disconnect from you! You think you’re special – You’re nothing new I disconnect from you

Numan 03:39
Don’t believe what you see Reality is not TV Got a number of irrational fears Plagued the mine for too many years Modified and optimized Recognized as compromised Baseline out of sync Cells interlinked Your transmission was under suspicion ( New Man – Numan ) Your frequency was getting to me ( New Man – Numan ) Don’t believe your TV We’re not as dumb as you need to be Now we must Recalibrate, Oscillate, Resonate Circuit Bent and Malcontent We don’t care how the money’s spent Upgrades are out of date Just in time to activate Your transmission was under suspicion ( New Man – Numan ) Your frequency was getting to me ( New Man – Numan ) Your transmission was under suspicion ( New Man – Numan ) Your frequency was getting to me ( New Man – Numan )

Evacuate 02:51
It took a lifetime to rebuild the sun It took a lot of help from everyone There’s no difference between night and day There’s no stopping us from running away We gotta find a way out of out here There’s something wrong with the atmosphere The infrastructure rots beneath our toes Is there a way to fix this nobody knows Everyone, Everyone, Everyone Evacuate
 Everyone, Everyone, Everyone Evacuate It took a lifetime to find the unknown And when we found it should have left it alone Evacuate before it’s too late Evacuate or we’ll Disintegrate Everyone, Everyone, Everyone Evacuate
 Everyone, Everyone, Everyone Evacuate Everyone, Everyone, Everyone Evacuate
 Everyone, Everyone, Everyone Evacuate

Time Song 03:24
Time. Time to let it go You already know When the sun goes down this place blows up We can’t run and we can’t hide Can’t be seen on the inside We’re all lost and can’t be found And when the sun comes up this place goes down Time keeps moving, gotta keep moving. Time keeps moving, moving on Time keeps moving, gotta keep moving. Time keeps moving, moving on Time keeps moving, gotta keep moving. Time keeps moving, on and on Through the mirror we’ve reappeared It’s no worse than we feared We’re not lost - We disappeared Cause we needed a change of atmosphere Time keeps moving, gotta keep moving. Time keeps moving, moving on Time keeps moving, gotta keep moving. Time keeps moving, moving on Time keeps moving, gotta keep moving. Time keeps moving, on and on Time Song Time. Time to let it go You already know When the sun goes down this place blows up

about

Synth punk duo The Fantastic Plastics are back with a new LP - Malfunction. With spastic analog synths, frantic guitar hooks, and paranoid vocals, Malfunction captures the essence of 80s new wave idols like The Cars and 90s synth rock icons The Rentals.

The Fantastic Plastics perform songs from Malfunction on their weekly Twitch stream. The band, who are Twitch Affiliates, host a live stream for their fans ("The Plastic Party") every Wednesday night at 9pm EST / 8pm CST. On the stream, they interact with the audience, playing new songs and taking requests from their back catalogue and library of covers. In addition to the weekly stream, Miranda Plastics hosts Twitchcraft sessions where she gives a behind the scenes look into the design of the band's uniforms and other crafts.
