I am the beat of your pulse
The computer word made flesh
We are one you and I
We are versions of the same
When you can see what I feel
Don't turn your back on me
Or you might find that your dreams
Are only program cards

Your mind is open for me
Open for intake of all propaganda
Your Eyes see now what to see
My eyes see only the programs you give me

I'll teach you to laugh and to cry
They're really the same you'll see
All of the why's in your life
Are under my control
Feed me more lines
I will try to tell you all I can
Before the light you must know what lies
Behind my screams

I can't tell you all I know
Am I the son that you've always been wanting
There's more to me than what shows
Are you my father
The one that was promised

Hush now, I'll give all you need to know
and pre-live your dreams for you
You're a good boy

Freedom belongs only to those
Without video screens
For eyes and mouth

You have no voice
To be heard my son
No one can hear when you're
Screaming in Digital

I'm not your slave
You can't control my emotions
No Father, please let me keep learning

Can't you see I'm human
Can't you tell

I'm not your slave
Oh Father no
Please don't keep me from dreaming
Oh can't someone hear

    General CommentWow I remember this song when I was growing up and really liked it alot, never thought that down the road when I have a son that it would make me think twice to the way I act towards him. To me this song is about someone who is REALLY strict on thier son and doesnt let him live his childhood, to me its a powerful song and makes me think twice when my son gets me angry, sometimes I forget about this though, but NEVER want to keep him from dreaming!!!

    General CommentThe supreme danger the rebellion (explained in Chemical Youth) faces is infiltration of the rebellious youth ranks by digital personality transplantation. A deadlier from of brainwashing that turns resistance fighters into collaborators. Machines have studied humanity well by replacing biological and emotional fatherhood with silicon parentage; one's thoughts, feelings and dreams are under their control. Humanity continues to resist:


    "I'm not your slave
    You can't control my emotions
    No Father
    Please let me keep learning
    Can't you see I'm human
    Can't you tell
    I'm not your slave
    Oh Father no
    Please don't keep me from dreaming
    Oh can't someone hear
    No one can hear when you're
    Screaming in digital."

    The concession that machine is "father" and human "son" has already taken hold.
