lyrics

{8. UNNATURAL} I couldn’t get close enough to see things clear I needed a shortcut for my eyes and for my ears we built an express lane from this world to my brain it was the next logical step it was the last thing that was left that we thought was sacred and sanctified by skin enclosed and protected but now you’ll find within a gridwork of dark grey paths connecting my this to my that in tandem with my veins I’m watching the data pump and strain you are zero to my one and we can’t stop what’s begun I am always connected I can’t ever turn it off I can’t ever walk away quickly enough that was what went in so this is what’s coming out I watched your eyes fall like dead weight to the floor when you saw the connectors mixed in among my pores as you held my hair back pinned my ears down flat I knew you couldn’t relate but save the polemic it’s far too late to argue against it you know I’ve always wanted this there’s too much potential for me to just dismiss the problems that we could solve if even a few evolve you can’t say I’m not the same this is still my voice this is still my name but spoken louder than ever before I wish you could see what I died for I am still on the network and I’m not ever getting off I can’t read these replies quickly enough how did what you believe compare with what you found out or will you look back on this and wonder plaintively how you could say it’s not natural that nothing we do is natural but if anything we’ve built is natural then you can’t tell me that it’s not natural
