lyrics

Through a screen we are seeing
Through our fingers we are speaking
The sun outside is shining
burning lines into my floor
That’s not the light we care to see anymore
In this house, everything’s buzzing
Never ending, keeps us running
No need to lift a finger
Unless it’s headed for your mouth
Post a picture of your food for friends to talk about

Some days I can only shake my head
Ring my hands and walk away
from every thing that’s shoved down my throat.
Climb up through the fire escape
To the roof far above cyberspace
lie on my back
and pray for rain

Take a moment to imagine
the rain to flood these waters.
All these roads that take us nowhere
Are nowhere we’ll ever know.
an existential revolution
All these bodies now are flying
Above the city streets
We once called home

It’s a net that catches nothing
In our Inbox out the other… box
No need to feel your feelings
When you can post them on your wall
Self reflection doesn’t count if no one knows about it
Ups and downs
Are just for loading
Don’t ever dream it
when you can stream it
A world that’s wide and infinite
Is all we ever want
But you’d have to leave the house
and that’s way too fucking hard

Take a moment to imagine
the rain to flood these waters.
All these roads that take us nowhere
Are nowhere we’ll ever know.
an existential revolution
All these bodies now are flying
Above the city streets
We once called home

Some days I can only shake my head
Ring my hands and walk away
from every thing that’s shoved down my throat.
Climb up through the fire escape
To the roof far above cyberspace
lie on my back
and pray for rain
