right on the edge of the world
where the answer's digital
and the solutions are all silicon
the questions all what can be done
never what is right or wrong
there's a virtual wave to surf along

question the validity
of human mortality

a page says superseding god
and they take all major cards
now you too can laugh and live forever
is the answer deep inside

the ghost, ghost in the machine
entity or dream
it matters not to me
the ghost, ghost in the machine
silent and unseen
ghost in the machine

do you want to live forever?
do you want to live?

terabytes of memory
holding consciousness complete
a solid state of immortality
saint of all technology
bless us in our infancy
for they no not what they did to me

question the validity
of human mortality

the ghost, ghost in the machine
entity or dream
it matters not to me
the ghost, ghost in the machine
silent and unseen
ghost in the machine

the ghost... the ghost... it's me!

    General CommentA song about how we are all connected in ways we do not know. We all have a mobile phone a handy laptops that all have one thing in common. They have a silicon chip. And one day these chips will be able to talk to each other as people talk to each other. Beware the Ghost in the machine
