You told me we were cool when I blew my lid clean off You said we were fine when I let it shine outside of my mind Out there I’ll let it slide this time I’ll let it breathe Sublime I’ll make you sneeze No slime I’ll make you say please Please I said you were high You looked in my eye I knew it was time to go You said we were mild I said you act like a child Said I act like one too Who cares? I’ll let it slide This time I’ll let it breathe Sublime I’ll make you sneeze No slime I’ll make you say please Please

Digital precision More human than human Tools made of information help me to be more than human Can’t discern (Chameleon) the difference (Chameleon World) between the code (Chameleon) and my world (Chameleon World) Sequence of bytes is more human than the flesh Data feels fine the function It makes it feel right It’s all I’m feeling Can’t discern (Chameleon) the difference (Chameleon World) between the code (Chameleon) and my world (Chameleon World)

Can’t be sure Doesn’t feel quite pure If I can use it is it not simulacra? If I can breathe is is it real, real action? Living in an image It’s got depth but not quite deep enough Not quite as deep as real deep as real I think I just saw it peel Don’t remember this part of the deal Swear it’s got the real feel What’s it trying to conceal?
5.
Why do we think simplicity makes any sense? Where is the simple in nature? I don’t know Then why do we think in boxes? Must be the synthesized mind Looks like they lied Just sigh and try again Go into the system preferences inside of you Don’t be afraid to change the settings of the synthesized mind

You’re all worried about the future I don’t worry at all You’re all stressing about exterior things They don’t phase me at all Something to remember through all this bullshit: "Just ride the artificial world out Ow Ow Ow Ow" It’s an illusion

She showed me my face She showed me a thousand faces She She told me the joke I thought she misspoke She Her laughter is embedded in my program We see beauty and horror She, harmony, indifference She showed me the great expanse Just then I felt the romance She broke down illusion She helped with the fusion She Her laughter is embedded in my program We see beauty and horror She, harmony, indifference Her laughter is embedded in my program We see beauty and horror She, harmony, indifference She told me, "It’s clowns all the way down"

After I’m reassembled Each part in it’s place What am I really left with here in 3D space? I get confused, priorities jumbled, then I look at your face, it’s Real. Now. Love. Now. Love. Here. I am here So very here I am here I am now So very now I am now I can’t fight it no longer Can’t try to ease the squeeze Here in 1D time Can’t erase the hours, it’s Real. Now. Love. Now. Love. Here.

I’m sick of all this concrete and bored with all these people that I meet until I remember what’s so funny I see the ridiculous inside of this synthesis When you learn that the straight world ain’t so straight It’s not easy to make sense of all this stuff, of all this motion I say just step back and take a breath A breath That’s why I’m sick of all this wasted time and bored with all these drinks without limes until I remember what’s so funny I see the ridiculous inside of this synthesis

I’m not so sure that I believe in clarity I need a dose of something that can make me see Every day is just another blur Another jumble of decisions made in haste Frankly I can see just how easy it is to be complacent with outside control Why can’t I let myself be that way? Why must I think so much? Mind a-buzz Every day I wish I could clarify the blur Wish someone else could make decisions for me
11.
When I try to explain myself I deceive myself I become convinced I can understand It’s so real, this cognizance but I recognize it’s illusion I apologize for confusion I can explain just about anything I can’t comprehend just about anything Just because I’ve got the words doesn’t mean I’ve got a grasp on what I perceive, on what I receive

I am a fool who’s living by some rules Not sure if they’re right, they’re all I’ve got I took the world for what it seemed to be I was surprised when I was wrong Doesn’t matter how smart I get If I look back a month I see an idiot It made so much sense, I followed the logic I rationalized then I was wrong Keep thinking I’ve got it right This time I’ll look back and be proud Doesn’t matter how smart I get If I look back a month I see an idiot Maybe this time I’ve got it right
13.
Love is an affirmation Of life Of body Of this world I am love I am survive I am life I am body I am this world In the random world generator realities crash and minds confuse but love, still love The only thing that’s constant is my love for you The only thing that’s really real is love, still love I am love I am need I am want I am body I am reality In the random world generator realities crash and minds confuse but love, still love The only thing that’s constant is my love for you The only thing that’s really real is love, still love

It’s not important that there are other worlds that are real because this one’s real too and no matter how hard we try we can’t escape body, so why cry? Don’t reject love Just absorb love Please know love Build whole love It sure couldn’t hurt It sure couldn’t hurt We are a finite expression of infinity behind the clown nose so let’s ride this out Appreciate finitude before we return to the expanse Don’t reject love Just absorb love Please know love Build whole love It sure couldn’t hurt It sure couldn’t hurt
