plug me in i'm cold

1978

electronic fever
silicon forever
spinning discs my head
i'm digitally dead

i can't hear what is said
they'd use my brain instead
my feelings never fed
is life already dead?

   plug me in i'm cold
   i'm digitally sold
   my circuit's never told
   plug me in i'm cold

silver wire thread
i'm practically dead
my soul in dooming swoop
my heartbeat's in a loop

yet i am no machine
with memory wiped clean
i'm body spirit soul
that's the life i know
