Pull me from the gallows
of this fiber-optic nation

I cannot compute why
we celebrate this mediocrity

Just let me download my
latest update right now
Just give me access to
my latest opinion
Now, now, give it now

Unplug me from this fantasy
my eyes have seen the sun
Have we all become voyeurs
covered by this digital veil

Direct my mind
just keep me occupied
don't let me find
something that is worth my time

We like to think that we
are more connected
but the truth is that we've
never been more divided
It's just too awkward
I need my digital veil

Blow the lid off your hard drive
and even if I can't comprehend
my place in this world

Pull me from the gallows
of this fiber-optic nation

    General CommentReminds me, lyrically and vocally, of Primer by Between the Buried and Me

    General CommentAgreed with the above comment. It's just not subtle enough. Though I do love the flow of his scream in the line "Pull me from the gallows, of this fiber-optic nation".

    General Commentinstrumentally an awesome song, but too heavy vocally. the overall message is poignant, the consequences of digitizing society have yet to be fully felt and need to be confronted, but I feel like the lyrics to this song are really lacking... like it's message is being forced down my throat.
