-1-2029, the stars are shining bright

Nerves connected to the center, we are tied to the machine
Invisible and silent, circling overland
The planemakers designed us to outturn and outmaneuver
Intruders in the skies, intruders in our skies

1-1-2029, tonight the stars are shining bright

Backbone of the fighter force, of the defence industry,
Devoted tools of the power, warrants of the order

1-1-2029 tonight the stars are shining bright

Silicon advisers leading the way
We reach our cruising altitude
1-1-2029, West Europe, midnight
Invisible and silent, circling overland
Scanning, taping, filing, instantly checking
Every human, car and plane of the quarters we survey

    General Commenti wouldnt go so far as to give it a 'meaning', but this song has some definite cyberpunk themes going on. Good stuff.

    General CommentPredator spy drones. We beat the prediction by 20 years, but damn if this isn't just exactly what's coming.
