lyrics

You'll never know
How hard it was to leave her
That was the hardest thing
I ever had to do

She said if you'd leave away
I don't ever want you to come back again

Long hard life

Becoming objects of conscious design
On ephemeral substrates
In monomer rental shop

Transferred through linear paths
Neither body survived
We had to leave them behind
Back to square one

So this was the plan

An abstract gait
Up the curve of progress
Memories endured in hyperspective
As knots in our throats dissolve
All stories never told archived
Then we move on

To fathom neoforms
We recombined exoscape
Under the wire
Grafted the sediment of life
Layer by layer
Selfhood transplant
Across the timeframe shutdown
Upfront the glory day
Reengineered morality
Devoid of compassion
The ethical concerns
Of the coming age
[Posthuman is
No longer the alien other]
Considered insane

How could we follow emotions
Of tissue and organ constructs
We stem from

Gave up feelings to become gods
Carboncopies
Of obsolete bioconstructs
Thinking grander and deeper
Formed us anew
Unaware of superstructures
We have just woken up to

An abstract gait
Up the curve of progress
Memories endured in hyperspective
As knots in our throats dissolve
All stories never told archived
Then we move on

To fathom neoforms
We recombined exoscape
And reached plateau
Under the wire
Grafted the sediment of life
Layer by layer
Selfhood transplant
Across the timeframe shutdown
Upfront the glory day
Reengineered morality
devoid of compassion
The ethical concerns
Of the coming age
[Posthuman is
No longer the alien other]
Considered insane
