lyrics

Touch me if you can
With your empty hands
Wire your desire
Send me all your

Broken links
Send all your private dreams
Send me everything
Cause it's all code to me
It's code to me

You and I are friends
We have never met
I know who you are
Just forget the

Boundary
That used to exist between
The code and reality
And put all your trust in me
Trust in me

Here come the thieves
Here come the clones
Here come a million echo chamber drones

I'm here to serve
I'm here to save
I give a little bit and then I take and take

What you see
Is what you get from me
And what I get from you
Is all that lies underneath

All that you buy
All that you need
All that you sell
All that you keep

All you despise
All you believe
All that you are
Is code to me
You're code to me

Here come the sheep
Here come the ants
Here comes the algorithmic song and dance

Define the pattern
And then recurse
Regurgitate the past just like a mother bird
