Cracking the Code

Recorded by The Band of Heathens - Duende (2017)
Music and Lyrics by Owen Temple and Gordy Quist



 

A window to the world in hand
Tablets, books, the tools of man
Take a picture quick, remember it
Gates and Jobs and walls of fame
They’re here and gone and back again
Just like Lazarus, faking it

We’re cracking the code again
Making all kinds of friends
Together we're all alone
When the master serves a machine too long

Read the writing on the wall
Say too much, reveal it all
Toss your dreams in the stream
I don't need to touch your skin
I saw your face in a book you’re in
So popular, love so pure

We’re cracking the code again
Making all kinds of friends
Together we're all alone
When the master serves a machine too long

Keep your profile up to date
How you feel, what you ate
Your foolish grin, everywhere you been
Am I who I say I am?
Zeroes, ones, the tools of man
It’s open source so use the force

We’re cracking the code again
Making all kinds of friends
Together we're all alone
When the master serves a machine too long

We’re cracking the code again
Making all kinds of friends
Together we're all alone
When the master serves a machine too long
When the master serves a machine too long
When the master serves a machine too long
