Track Name: Lonely Robots Dream
“Lonely Robots Dream”

there once was a time
when our eyes were young
each day began
with the morning sun
that light in our eyes
lit up the skies
but now these devices
distract and hide

and Lonely Robots Dream
we’re living inside machines
a soulless existence
on computer screens

I remember the days
before zombies attacked
those real conversations
where people talked back
when seeing a friend
meant face to face
not posting to profiles
that time will erase

and Lonely Robots Dream
we’re living inside machines
vicarious loading
of meaningless streams

everyone’s talking
without a sound
a selfish narration
that’s losing ground
like traveling salesmen
who push their wares
not speaking directly
no time to care

and Lonely Robots Dream
we’re living inside machines
a soulless existence
on computer screens

collecting their friends
upon which they’ll feed
to push their agendas
and sow their seeds

devices work better
when in the dark
the hypnotist glow
that hits the mark
That light in your eye
that once was there
has been replaced
with an empty stare

and Lonely Robots Dream
we’re living inside machines
a soulless existence
on computer screens

collecting our friends
upon which we’ll feed
to push an agenda
that this planet needs
