lyrics

In a world coded so binary
We’re hunched over our lit up screens
Fucking vacant
Barely physical at all

In the digital realm we validate
We cauterize our insecurities
An addiction
Fit for the finest drug

As data grows and nature dies
We’ll lose our sense of reality
Swallowed whole by
The computing machines

So we’ll pull our plugs out from the wall
I’m calling for an EMP
Heard you wanted
A fucking anarchy

As artificial intelligence outsmarts us
We’ll all be fine with
Surviving alone and fornicating robots
It won't be quite like
Terminator or The Matrix
Nothing quite as cool just
Replacing all our windows with a screen
It's not ok with me

Call in the EMP
Set a blue flame to all wires and networks
Kill all the connections
Banish the bandwidth smash all that transmits
Pull the plugs from the wall
Don’t smash the system just disconnect it
Call in the EMP
Don’t smash the system just disconnect it

Don’t smash the system just disconnect it
Call in the EMP we can end it

Don’t smash the system just disconnect it
Call in the EMP we can end it

The abacus went to far and now we’re all fucked
Codependent
And useless without porn and CGI
It won't be quite like
Terminator or The Matrix
Nothing quite as cool just
Replacing all our windows with a screen

Our grandchildren will see the world around us
Like a prison cell where
The internet is authenticity
It won’t be quite like
RPGs or listening to Daft Punk
Nothing futuristic just
People programmed into slavery

It’s not ok with me
Call in the EMP
It’s not ok with me
Call in the EMP

Don’t smash the system just disconnect it
Call in the EMP we can end it
