Dearest public past, I'm chanced in primal mass
And to you I write vitas for you life
Adverse troubled child

When talking involved mouth not hands
Acute and obtuse
A computer can beat this romance
Where it now exists
Lyrics doubt each other wrists, as all medium becomes a soothing fist

To express is either kiss or complain
Bring in the arms or shove them away
Repetitiveness of a musical phrase

Eager skins that light the fires
Autists hungry for the match
Drinking fossils of the liars
Figments where the bugbears at
I know. you're not me
I know you not really

Imagination definition, pseudo-slamming of the
Skulls to make one mind that someone else
Take my voice please do what you want with it
Chose like a mouse with click, you smile and nod
Purpose what a selfish orangutang
Progress has now been changed, nature is lost

Where to now, stillborns of the last big take this?
Human beings have been solved and now they want to fake us

Yours sincerely, present of future end

    General CommentI haven't really looked at it but it seems pretty obvious its about the use of email and instant messaging and this site (how ironic) and the such; that its ruining our ability to express ourselves and that whole argument.

    General Commentit seems to be a letter to the past, mocking its problems- silly as a childs. how badly off things are now. the poor and limited communication, the lack of emotions. computers and technonlgy have taken over everything. even love- "our computer can beat this romance" it's really a brilliant song. they even sound computer-like

    General CommentOur advanced technology, from our computers to mobile phones, has bereft us of intimate relationships, romance, our ability to personally express ourselves.

    General CommentThe above have really nailed this song well. So I'll just mention my two favorite lines in this song. "All medium becomes a soothing fist." and "Human beings have been solved, now they want to fake us."

    How true and beautifully written.

    General Commenti think it's about a long-distance relationship and the fact that they can communicate more often via technology but they are still apart, and the frustration and irony that must bring.
