lyrics

We turned appendages to animals
For the cybernetic global masquerade
Then in the cadence of your syllables
I heard familiar and enchanting things conveyed
Since then I'm drawn to every word you say
Like a dissertation topic to expand
One question walks across my mind each day
Will I ever have a chance to reach your hand
Before it flies away
Perhaps you see the same and know I'm wrong
From your thirteen hour future citadel
But I've lived dark abstractions far too long
To be covered in concrete would serve me well
If only I could swim the ocean clear
Like some leonid chimera of the sea
Instead I'll sit and keep an open ear
So I don't miss it if you ever call to me:
Foreigner, come here
