1-1-2029, the stars are shining bright

Nerves connected to the Center, we are tied to the machine
Invisible and silent, circling overland
The plane makers designed us to out-turn and outmaneuver
Intruders in the skies, intruders in our skies

1-1-2029, tonight the stars are shining bright

Backbone of the fighter force, of the defense industry
Devoted tools of the power, warrants of the order

1-1-2029, tonight the stars are shining bright

Invisible and silent, we are circling overland
circling overland, circling overland

Silicon advisers leading the way
We reach our cruising altitude

1-1-2029, West Europe, midnight
Invisible and silent, circling overland
Scanning, taping, filing, instantly checking
Every human, car, and plane of the quarters we survey

Circling overland

Circling overland

    General Comment2029 is the year that scientists predict to be the Intelligence Singularity - the year that machines achieve the same intelligence as human beings. It's not about the fighter industry per se, it's about the future of warfare, and the omniscience of the machine. It's not from the point of view of the pilots - the jets are the ones doing the talking.

    General Commentyep, exactly right, predicted by scientist that technology will have the same intelligence as humans.
    Nothing to do with new world order or any whatever
    waldemar is talking about, which is entirely wrong and far off the mark.
    Its about technology growing at a rapid rate.
    Many sci-fi movies have themes like this.

    General CommentI see no one has commented on this wonderful Front 242 cover -- why? I think this is one of my favorite songs. :)
