In the singularity We're the only lovers left online From the off-world colonies We are the ones left behind And if we're only human Just wake me when it's over Holograms protect you You only need to double click your eyes LED lights will distract you Touch the pads to make you mine And if we're only human Just wake me when it's over

The science of 1s and 0s Designed emotional (like you and I) Desire, and you're so close Decipher the love code (and you and I) Connect through the internet (when every line is dead) We're connected through your phone (when you're alone) When everything is elsewhere And you feel alone
3.
When there's a darkness On the event horizon We are holding on We are still here When love is long lost In digital warzones We are holding on We are fighting The world is changed now The world is all but gone But we are holding on We are still here The signal's fading And we are all alone But we are holding on We are fighting Push, push Over the edge now The world is long gone If there's a Skynet Or only simulation We are holding on We are still here Between the darknet And the ones in the know We are holding on We are fighting The world is strange now The world has lost control But we are holding on We are still here The siren's wailing The centre cannot hold But we are holding on We are fighting
4.
The neon signs flashing in the street But you and I, we would never meet The city's sound is a heartless beat And you and I, we would never meet Your picture flickering on the screen But you and I could've never been Love is lost in a numb routine And you and I could've never been It's just a matter of the time we spend And in the end timing is everything So timing will keep us apart forever Timing will keep us apart forever

There's a trace, in the dawning Of a new love And there's a ghost of a feeling That holds me now And when you left in the morning And you were gone You left a trace of a feeling That lingers on Trails, in the dawning of these unpretentious, pure intentions Dead in love and listening to every movement, every mention There's a trace, in the dawning Of a new world A disconnection receeding As life returns And when you left in the morning And you were gone You left a trace of a feeling That lingers on

We left the world we knew behind We hoped to find another life We left everything behind We did it to survive We left the world we knew behind We didn't know what we would find We left everything behind We did it to survive We didn't know about the future But we had to make the change Every resource was exhausted So we had to leave this place New life Somewhere in the sky A new life for you and I We're alive, somewhere in the sky

The cities built anew, a world inverted A planet simply used, then left deserted Go live among the exiles, where everything is perfect A life among the exiles, where everyone is someone Enter the forbidden zone The colonies are lost and blown We're only simulations now The satellites are crashing down Science made for you a better version Could it make you, too, a better person Go live among the exiles, where everything is perfect A life among the exiles, where everyone is someone

After love is over What remains The afterglow is sober The light is strange Lover, lover, after love the feeling still remains Lover, lover, nothing ever really goes away And if you recover What has changed When all of this is over Love remains

All that glitters is cold and sad And the nothingness shows through Real life's long been dead, she said And we're just ghosts passing through Once again I turn to my computer like a friend Talking to you is, like, just like talking To a ghost on the internet All this time what I fucking wanted Was just to forget Once again I turn to my computer like a friend

Scrolling down the hills of loss When I get to the mourning And our little planet's quiet All the lights are on

about

HISTORY WILL REPEAT ITSELF, PLANET BY PLANET

All watched over by drones, we became accustomed to regarding the singularity, not as a cataclysmic event, but as a series of subtle shifts in the nature of our relationship with technology. Cataclysm would surely come, though, and so, faced with the prospect of extinction, we sought to leave an unsustainable Earth.

What follows is an account from the off-world colonies.
