Pax Half-Life is my first exposure to the AVANNA VOCALOID library, and it's a great start. From that, I found Hard-Disk and Define Me, which cemented nostraightanswer as my new favourite VOCALOID producer. Hoping to hear more work from them! Favorite track: Half-Life.

kravlin It's a bit more chill than most of the stuff from Vocallective, but it's still very solid, atmospheric and just...good. Give it a listen. Favorite track: Hard-Disk Hide and Seek.

about

Featuring the VOCALOID Library AVANNA, this single contains two tracks, each telling different stories. The A-Side, "Hard-Disk Hide and Seek", is about a friendly computer virus that gets in a bit of trouble with the host computer. The B-Side, "Half-Life", is about a dwindling partnership.

Track Name: Hard-Disk Hide and Seek
Avanna:

Bright eyes look up | just to be ignored.
The same as before...
A cue to restore the | light dyes of blue | and dot the skies with clouds;
the locations of the memories, | I had found | and lost.
Lost and found.

Bright eyes look up | just to be ignored.
The same as before...
A cue to restore the | light dyes of blue | and dot the skies with clouds;
the locations of the memories | I had found | and lost.
Lost and found.

Desire to be seen, those | bright eyes, oh so keen had | hatched a plan that'd guarantee.
The greatest action done, | the host spots and locks on, | those bright eyes simply had to go.

"You better hide now."

"I'll find your hideout."
"I know the layout."
"You'll never know how."
"You can't esca- a- a- a-"

"I'll find your hideout."
"I know the layout."
"You'll never know how."
"You can't escape now now. ow. ow. ow."

Bright eyes look up | to face the host once more.
The same as before...
No "human error" core.
Light dyes of hue | had started crashing through | the locations of the memories | I had found | and lost.
Lost and loved.

Those bright eyes realized, | those watchful eyes had lied, | this promise broken drew the line.
A once dead pixel lights, | a cathode tube ignites, | a once lost cause becomes a fight.

Bright eyes look up | to settle the score.
A change from before...
A cue to restore the | lifelines, worldviews, | and all the in-betweens:
the locations of the memories | I had found | and lost.
Lost and found.
Lost and loved.

Avanna:

Stay still with me, | my company, | and
let’s just be | still silently.

Stay still with me.

Why must it be | the roots and leaves |
start falling to pieces when you leave
me? | Ah… stay still with me.

The weather’s cold and | the water’s
freezing, | I need support ‘cause I can
not stand alone.

I’m waiting for the day | the sun will
shine it’s rays…
I’m trembling, | will you hold my hand
one more time?

They’re calling me out, | I’m breaking
down now, | I know I must be causing so
much grief when viewed.

Cutting away from thee, | the tears go
straight to me, | I’m trembling, | would
you just leave and let me be?

But you came then, | my only friend, |
you saved me from my end…

Stay still with me, | my company, | and
let’s just be | still silently.

Stay still with me.

Why must it be | the roots and leaves |
start falling to pieces when you leave
me? | Ah… stay still with me.

The weather’s warm and | I’ve started
burning, | the town’s alarmed but not
doing a thing about it.

I’m left there in the flames | with not a
single gaze | I’m trembling, | I’ve
really done it now this time.

But you came then | my only friend | and
put out the fire that had engulfed me.

But you came when | I was to end, | and
almost left again...

Stay still with me, | my company, | and
let’s just be | still silently.

"Stay still with me."

Why must it be | the roots and leaves |
start falling to pieces when you leave
me? | Ah… stay still with me.

Stay still with me.

Stay still with me.

Stay still with me….

Stay still with me.

Stay still with me.
