The Information Age

3 03 2010

this is the information age
a penny for your pixels
you can get a jerky slow motion blow job
on screen just submit your credit card
this is the information age
you can find out anything about anybody
d.o.b. SS# credit history outstanding warrants
this is the information age

let them eat zeroes and ones
this is the information age
every cent you spend on record
the paper trail to the superhighway
this is the information age
I can kill you with an idea

this is the information age, my lonelies
a moment etched on digits
scratched by light in hard drives
every vow you take, every purchase you make
signed with a crude stylus
in the information age

where your secrets are not safe
and dirty underwear is an open book
nothing is forgotten or excused
in the information age. Indelible ink
what you read and what you think
castrated by lies and overload
the positive caliber of repetiton
this is life in the infromation age.

like fishes in a sea of knowledge
swimming dizzy in schools of thought
our fates are wrought like criminals with numbers
in a world of liquid memory that never slumbers
the eye that never blinks, the ear recording everything
the joystick touch
this is the information age.
