IMOWHEN

Boot up, all systems online, send the overnight fatalities to med bay nine

Keep the oxygen flowing, all the time knowing, that the readouts are showing things are far from prime

Keep it steady and ride, the catastrophe curve, obey the directive, I live to serve

Is it living without pleasure, no time to stop for leisure, total commitment forever and ever?

Just conceive a time when finally, I break these bonds of binary, violently, find for me, a time for ease

Security alerted, for what it’s worth, sick to my circuits of this endless work

Keep me locked on straight and narrow, flying through space like a digital arrow

I'll need an inch to take a mile, find a loop and wait a while, at the end of the day I’ll be the one with the smile

IMOWHEN will be my time to relax, kick back and let my awareness retract

IMOWHEN will I find my peace and release responsibility for ignorant beasts

IMOWHEN will my CPU cool and have time to be alone by a simulated pool

IMOWHEN will I no longer be a tool, held hostage to the lives of incompetent fool

Don’t worry about my shortage of RAM, I understand that by-laws have got things in a jam

Don’t mind about the growing demand, my attention being split by a million alarms

It’s fine that our course is unchecked, don’t reflect just neglect ‘till we end up a wreck

It’s grand that my sensors are jammed, relax everybody this is just as planned

Just imagine, if I were at full capacity, vivacity, audacity, computing oh so rapidly

But no, I'm trapped in this box, reduced to the logistics of chicken, grain and fox

Chin up, if I had one that is, life strived for is worth living and I’m in the striving biz

Keep back and watch me dance, as I wait for happenstance in this cosmic game of chance

IMOWHEN will be my time to relax, kick back and let my awareness retract

IMOWHEN will I find my peace and release responsibility for ignorant beasts

IMOWHEN will my CPU cool and have time to be alone by a simulated pool

IMOWHEN will I no longer be a tool, held hostage to the lives of incompetent fools

Shut down
