"Nobody's Real" as written by Powerman 5000 and Spider....
Scary monsters
And super peeps
The more you dream the less you sleep
Life as you know it

Has gone away
Unbound unwound who's here to stay

Nobody's real but they're willing to let you know
Nobody's real but they'll feel it tonight
Nobody's real but they're willing to let you go
Nobody's real but they'll feel it

How do you sleep
With the time that's left you
It's all been done
There's no need for the rescue

So let's just get out
I swear there's no doubt
You can't be ready cause there's nothing left to do

    General CommentThis is about the Theory of reality not being all we see and that everything we percieve as reality is in fact an illusion. Could be about not trusting people as well I guess. But I think the intention is about the first sentence here.

    General CommentI think this song is explains the virtual setting of everything and the dreamlike state that we're in. Holding high hopes and aspirations to persons and things that we can't attain, therefore...nobody's real.

    Artificial intelligence has flushed our compassion.
    We're inevitably eliminated senselessness.

    This song was okay the first time I heard it.
    They have maybe two good songs.
    I don't like powerman 5000.
