I wrote this track about Pokémon Red/Blue for the original Gameboy.


Why can't I go any faster
(Cause there's no running)
What about jumping the bushes
(No there's no jumping)
Just tell me what my abilities are
Alone I am nothing alone I'll be harmed

(There’s a voice in the distance)
Don’t go
(Not in my range of vision)
Follow me
(A stranger is he)
I’ll let you pick one of these three

Forged from embers
Tail like a candle
This dragon’s ignited
This is what I pick

It’s rock paper scissors
With extra mechanics
4 sound channels and grayscale palette

This will be the fight of your life
Stand up to your rival
Stand up for what’s right

You must become elite
Remember his face
You’re sure again to meet

Running in tall grass
The world is a scary place
It’s dangerous to go alone
Take this and you will be safe

You’ll pick up more along the way
You better be prepared to pay
This is your first time out here all alone
You sure are a long way off from home

I’ve got this Hidden Machine
To teach a technique any time
It can be used infinitely
To get to the places where I couldn’t be

No hesitation I will bring this to a knife fight
That is a threat, I will bring this to my next fight

I’ve got this Hidden Machine
To teach a technique any time
I’ve got this Hidden Machine
I’ve got this Hidden Machine

Prepare to be cut HM01
