lyrics: ode

I was born in '83, the son of an obscenity. The people rejoiced and said in one voice: one more child for the machine. My choices were made by '98-- the product of what they called fate. The people approved, and being well-moved, proceeded to show me to my place.

Love me and I'll always be good.
Love this child of the machine; lay your body on the gears.

I opened my eyes in 2005, but closed them before I could cry. The people opined: "what's wrong with his mind? Don't he know that he can't turn the tide?" But I am alive in 2009, a victory in its own right. The people are still busy building a hell of idols and gurus and dollars and flies.

Love me and I'll always be good.
Love this child of the machine; lay your body on the gears.

Bow down to the machine.
Kneel and pray to the machine.
Give your thanks to the machine.
Come and be judged by the machine.
