when I was young I saw a square
a hole where something should be there
I knew all this was just a cage
this knowledge has not changed with age
I knew then and I know it still
I'm being held against my will
inside this stupid hologram
so I won't find out who I am

I really just pretend to care
when I'm not looking, you're not there

and you and your disgusting lies
like gravity and compromise
and flesh and life and love and time
that's your opinion it's not mine
I live among the robots now
but I'll find my way out somehow
so save your big reality
for when you're so-called touching me

you're only colors in thin air
when I'm not looking, you're not there
