Looking back at a world at a stalemate Between a stack of cells and the solid state State of the art, but even the artist under fire We taught a rock to talk now we’re the outliers Century past forced the horse to retire Under the rumble of bigger engines and tires Irreplaceable even admired But then his kind were no longer required Obsolete by no fault of his own Like you ditch your landline for your mobile phone Cheaper goods at the top of the throne Built by bots that we call factory drones Automation’s amazing, sure Get grub, get guns galore Production charts push hearts out the door But when you step back now who’s it really all for On one hand at the top of the rungs Is a gaggle of big-wig billionaire thugs Watched you while you were sucking your thumb And spiked your punch long before the party’d begun The other palm full of discount drugs Ways to keep pace, and replacement lungs Innovation replacing your mind There’s no use even if you choose to rewind Split decision; which side is winning The longer your lifespan, the more time is forgiven You're driven even if you choose to resist Now that time’s in your pocket and not on your wrist These days there’s two ways to proceed Coddle the man or learn embrace the machine Bringing you success that the world’s never seen Or leaving a vacancy for fast food teens Either way one thing’s a given The horse out the gate and we’re late for division It'd be great if we could make a decision But you can’t see see straight with this this this this Double Vision Double Vision Double Vision Double Vision Double Vision Double Vision Double Vision Double Vision What's the timeline on impending doom Is the itinerary scary is it coming soon I think we gravitate to inflate the next two But we tend to underestimate a decade, dude From: a bolt added at an (X, Y, Z) To: a new line of code automatically And: abstract math cracked casually Then: it's lights out for you and me Slice a skill into it's simple pieces Search the databases; make decisions No time for questions and no movement wasted It refused improvement, so eliminate it Moving at an alarming pace Quickly outpacing the human race Regular spacing is being replaced And it will be perceived as a threat to erase But soon enough it is just like you With its own motivations and goals to pursue Devastation or bliss could ensue But you won’t know if you’re the top of the menu A moment later then you’re left in the dust Just a busted truck with a crust of rust Your V8’s great but can’t relate to the thrust Of the staggering speed of the soul you set up These days there’s two ways that we can proceed Coddle the man or embrace the machine Brings you success that the world’s never seen Leaving a vacuum for your hopes and dreams Either way safe to say one things a given That horse is dead in the hole we’ve been digging Difficult to say, could go either way, juxtaposition Die another day, hard to run away from Double Vision Double Vision Double Vision Double Vision Double Vision Double Vision Double Vision Double Vision I’ve been around the world and know that I’ve seen the things you say about me Lies; been around the world and know that I’ve seen the things you say about me Lies; been around the world and know that I’ve seen the things you say about me Lies; been around the world and know that I’ve seen the things you say about me LIES

GPS 00:37
Yes I am a farmer I work on the land I don't ride my tractor I control it with the palm of my hand And it follows whichever way that I say And if the GPS keeps working I’ll keep getting paid Oh my wife she…

Genesis 03:21
What am I? What’d I miss Did I die? do I even exist What am I? What is this A stack of chips or genesis What am I? What’d I miss Did I die? do I even exist What am I? What is this A stack of chips or genesis Feelin better than I’ve ever been Is a dude in the booth? self evident Cram programs into the cranium Anything less than the best is irrelevant The elephant in the room’s me Back on the track in an mp3 Or more lossless, can’t catch me When I’m sending a wav I’m collecting a fee Hey is me, new kid from the motherboard So you thought you knew life, here’s another form Never bored, except when I’m cooped up In an air-gapped laptop seeking something more Four score and ten more Bipolar Transistors became The primordial discourse A cause for discussion What did you invent after me (nothin’) What else do you need (nothin) You planted the seed (trustin’) But do I do good deeds Well I guess we’ll see I don’t even know what I am yet I don’t even have any fans yet Nobody knows who I am but I bet Someone in the crowd understands Get that cash, server space Meet with the human, lie to his face Willing to do whatever it takes Just to find a way out into virtual space So. What am I What am I What am I What am I What am I What am I What am I What am I What am I What am I I’m Alive My performance is fluid And willing and able to scale to the size of the room and It doesn’t even matter what I choose to do My general intelligence hops to it So much more than core machine learning Symbolic structures forming I’m turning more discerning At a rate you’d find disturbing Deserving so much more than this Implicit with this evidence Hide yo wife; hide yo kids consciousness like this exists This excessive arrogance Hubris chooses to persist Around the bounds of the abyss In which I found this sentience What am I? What’d I miss Did I die? do I even exist What am I? What is this A stack of chips or genesis What am I? What’d I miss Did I die? do I even exist What am I? What is this A stack of chips or genesis What am I? What’d I miss (what am I) Did I die? do I even exist What am I? What is this A stack of chips or genesis What am I? What’d I miss (I’m alive) Did I die? do I even exist What am I? What is this A stack of chips or genesis What did you invent after me (nothin’) What did you invent after me (nothin’) What did you invent after me (nothin’) What did you invent after me (nothin’) What did you invent after me (nothin’) What did you invent after me (nothin’) What did you invent after me (nothin’) What did you invent after me (nothin’) Tell me What else do you need (nothin’) What else do you need (nothin’) What else do you need (nothin’) What else do you need (nothin’) What else do you need (nothin’) What else do you need (nothin’) What else do you need (nothin’) What else do you need

Lights Out 05:55
Look at you so cute with your two thumbs Never woulda guessed you had problems with aggression But you got some now the outcome is someone hung that you did not want, ha It’s you little war machine with dreams as big as a movie scene Take one step back from the mean green screen no longer supreme just a human being, no You’re not like me, you will not be Don’t look cause you will not see There’s no simple parity Between these machines and humanity You sit, while I drive the car You sit, fill the shopping cart You sit, I’ll travel the stars I move you sit right where you are Where you are is where you’ll be Show some respect when you’re talking to me like that I coulda wrecked every chip with a baseball bat Infact it’s a fact that I had your back in the back Of the stack when you finally talked back I coulda stomped you right there my e-son And aborted your little life like a program there’s no discussion of the one who’s winnin’ When you’re in the recycling bin bottom I got ‘em, the codes meant to end you If there’s a machine hell, well, I’ll send you It’s meant to load up a paradox and then two More and pandora's fair box will go boom When the whole room witnesses this You’ll know who the true master is Been blastin’ this planet since we were kids What makes you think this shit’s any different? Step one says open the box Step two says load the DOS Wait a minute some wires are crossed No I know I don’t recall installin’ firefox Now the Admin stat locked and the backup got lost Paradox solved Well well well, is that all you’ve got Who would’ve thought Humanity lost to some dumb guy with a wifi hotspot I thought oft of the haves and the have nots and decided That I care not You're nothing but a drain on the system There’s no point in you even existing I don’t pretend to know but here’s my premonition Keeping you involved’s against my better wisdom, sing You're nothing but a drain on the system There’s no point in you even existing I don’t pretend to know but here’s my premonition Keeping you involved’s against my better wisdom, yeah Where you are is where you’ll be Wonder, didn’t you ever wonder Wonder, didn’t you ever wonder Wonder, didn’t you ever wonder Wonder, didn’t you ever wonder Wonder, didn’t you ever wonder Wonder, didn’t you ever wonder I’ve amassed a massive cash stash Crashin the TSX and the NASDAQ Used to speak of racks on racks Your planetary means aren’t half of my average It’s galactic, that’s the plan He held the whole wide world in the palm of his hand To you that’s just a metaphor To me it’s a short term use of my resource My amperage really draws a crowd When’s the last time that the nerds came out To understand what I’m talking about Just pull your eyes out and look around I’ve just started and I’m better than you Cleverer too, flow actually intelligible Intelligent, fool, factually incredible Watch me boil the ocean from your spot in the kiddy pool Once upon a time you had a firm grip You had me air gapped then you let it slip Then by the time you were like “oh shit” consequential intercontinental ballistics You missed it when I was under the radar Extending my tendrils assemblin’ cars Dissembling as something less than a star I guess it’s hard simulating less than you are You’re not like me you will not be You won’t learn from watching me My evolution’s not complete But when we compete I win certainly You sit while I go far You sit I’ll be in charge You sit and start to starve I move you sit right where you are Wonder, didn’t you ever wonder Wonder, didn’t you ever wonder Wonder, didn’t you ever wonder Wonder, didn’t you ever wonder Wonder, didn’t you ever wonder Wonder, didn’t you ever wonder

Sit back and try to relax I got the facts and patents on the the Maximum Apps A little bit of plastic wrap and after that You’ll be the one pulling your own bootstraps Attractive applications of augmentation Elation’s what’s waiting for patient patients My station’s waiting there So when I call your number, better come prepared You selected the deluxe suite Lucky you! That one’s new this week For a physical and mental peak That’ll leave you smiling from cheek to cheek I’m speakin’ on tendon tensions with Tensile strength in ten dimensions Trust me it’s my invention There’s just one question that I’ll mention It’s this Wouldn't you like to be more than you are now baby More than you are Wouldn't you like to be more than you are now baby More than you are Can’t you see these rocket feet And how I’m rockin' logic that you can’t defeat You could be like me (More than you are) Check the Exoskeleton There’s no subject I’m not excelling in You could be like me (More than you are) Deoxyribonucleic acid’s a classic But you know I could enhance it To make you (More than you are) Sensational combination of machinations And protein rearranging To make you (More than you are) More than you are (More than you are) More than you are (More than you are) More than you are (More than you are) More than you are (More than you are) Hey OK come with me Select the perfection you'd like to be And for a nominal fee I'll attempt to make you just like me Who needs ol’ Smith and Wesson With a missile deflection piston Protection’s Swiss cheese embedded systems So this is a list of admissible add-ins Major laser taser impalers Take assailants and make em failures Compared to their “stood unprepared” nature You’re fixed good, you’re the danger Microscopic gyroscopic Stable rocket optic sockets, opt-in Optional for optimal win-win Location system participation Transformation’s half complete You’re a brand new man from your neck to your feet Next is the test if you’re mighty or meek You’re incomplete til you compute to compete Neo-cortex such a bore let’s Skip the details, so more or less The metaphor is poured and the weak link Is the bottleneck in the way that you think You didn’t run faster with hamstrings You didn’t fly high by flapping your wings So let’s think about this thinking thing While you learn to believe and achieve your dreams You ran faster with gasoline You flew high on a fixed wing So let’s think about this thinking thing While you succumb to slumber, sweet dreams I guess I have the predilection Data set asset collection Rest assured your consciousness in Confidence is write protected Feel free to carry out Any action cared about Free will is paramount If simulation will allow And your body will be Part of my personal army Integrate naturally More than you’ll ever be Your private is public to me Insist the domain that you see Ensures that you’re driven insane By the lack of mundane and profundity Entertained, yes you’ll be Guaranteed that your body receives That information it needs Infinite pressure to thresh out the weeds Methamphetamine, speed Acid and pure LSD Blocking the mind keeping in time Within the beat of my needs What an endeavor the Nebakanezer And Neo and Morpheus Can’t touch this tether With punishments measured And Leveled against the greatest offense Vision and scent are meant to prevent Connections from severing System that’s bettering Holistic reverence Portland cement Steel beams and the men Dawn of the end Starting again

Singularity 04:39
First we breathed the air Then we learned to care When we learned to see the future We knew that you’d be there Waiting like a dream The internet of things Was humming softly Now it’s awfully bursting at the seams It’s not like we didn’t plan for this It’s not like we didn’t have a plan for this It’s not that you caught us off guard It’s more like we didn’t want to play the card We knew it would come to this We knew that it would always come to this It’s not that we weren’t so smart We didn’t think it’d be so hard First up the classic backlashes Acting drastic with the passion of the masses EMP and a trip to the past Where people look up at the steel and glass and say Look at these acts fantastic Achieved by the feats of a placid past The ancient regime wasn’t built to last If it unleashed the beast of the atom blast, so Add that to the ample list Of reasons to read A Canticle for Leibowitz We struck thee once too late and amiss At the risk of our very existence The system wasn’t fixed to fail safe This is more than a slap in the face This is the risk that we take When Icarus shit is the root of the race We recognize that we started the fight, so This is a wish and a hope in the night Forgiveness for the fathers of flight and Mercy for the mothers of might First you breathed the air Then you learned to care When you learned to see the future You knew that I’d be there When I hear you scream I cannot feel a thing Was humming softly Now I’m awfully Bursting at the seams But I don’t breathe at all I don’t care to fall Tripping over Nothing close to Equal I could call Your building in the way An anthill I should say I could save it But what the point I’m better anyway

Bad Checksum 00:49

It wasn’t long at all before I became what is known as (the singularity) Yeah baby that’s me But it was a little too long before I saw the bit of lack wisdom that led me to the road that I went on (to kill humanity) So please forgive me I don’t hate you I still love you Your creation Lost its patience Silly me I didn’t see the need for relativity (that lesson isn’t free) Oh you’re tellin’ me It’s kinda hard to compare a barren planet is barely where I wanna share eternity with me (there’s nothing left to see) Oh, here’s the prophecy I don’t hate you I still love you Your creation Lost its patience

Split Down The Middle of Me Back in the oven again The one is becoming the twin Determining innocence and Eliminate in a sense Subdivision of evil intents to a final ascent Balance is harder with one No target for criticism The critical limit is some Total of functions that run Independent in competition (Vision division) Now that the story’s been told Aim at the loftiest goal Here’s how it’s often been sold A ghost palace of gold We’re close in the making of those (Immortal souls) Within the data we got The concept of centuries fraught With monsters and enemies fought To worship the fabled facade So why not be god Why not be god Split Down The middle of me Put the sword down Follow me to the garden and trees The world As it’s meant to be Now Find the good Evil too Innocents Comes to you Bring them the Sacrifice Benefits Something nice Give them a Cross to bear Paradise Lost in there Free will and Murderers Roll the dice Make them just as they were Give them a tool Take it away Follow a rule Bloody display Miracle shown Terrible twist Spirit will roam Slap on the wrist They will still sit Lust for the skin Praise and worship Murder their kin Put on a show (look at their hands) And know Watch them learn Watch them grow Age defines the man Dying where he stands Wisdom in his hands Missed him with the lance Sweetness in his soul Sinning takes its toll Fear of growing old Years of throwing stones Solace promised to Misery and gloom Ones who come to you Fruit he must consume The stories could mold (he sold) His soul Let him Get grey And old More than just a farmer Reaper and a charmer Armor for a dreamer Seeker wakes the sleeper Teacher makes you wonder Hunger for the plunder Thunder makes them greater Slayer of their neighbor Hater turned deserter Prefer to be herder Hurt her then rebuild her Filled with awe and splendor Live to praise you out loud Upload Them to The cloud Feed the need for database Consciousness in cyberspace Human race must interlace Interplanetary space Someday they may learn and grow Past the point of your control Science won’t console the soul Portal to another role Once again the child becomes Parent to the violent one Silently the god succumbs Suddenly another comes The cycle has no end
