Computer, what’s the point in this?
You do all the thinking, where are we?
Just digging shelters in the snow
Build a house of dream and domino

Oh no, it’s fallen down
Got my headphones on, and I won’t hear a sound
No, it’s all broke down,
Eyes out on the road, but no-one comes along
when you want them to

Let your hair hang long
Yeah, that old north wind is blowing
through these cracked up walls
And you won’t feel so strong
Voices on the street, yeah it’s closing time, again

Computer, what’s the point in this?
You do all the thinking, where are we?
Just building shelters in the snow
Build a house of dream and domino

Oh no, it’s fallen down
Got my headphones on, and I won’t hear a sound
Yeah, it’s all broke down,
Eyes out on the road, but no-one comes along
when you want them to

    General CommentI think he's referring to how technology has made isolation much more popular. More people are prone to stay home and watch Netflix alone, rather than building relationships with real people- because it's easier. Obviously not every person is guilty of that, but it's foolish to think that isolation (paired with technology) is not a growing phenomenon.
