quiet on the surface
turbulent mind
steady heart
there is purpose

record in analogue
static screen
buttoned up
silent dialogue 

somebody there
to hear you
keep peace amid
permanent warfare

the data is stark
ones and zeroes
a reason to be
afraid of the dark

there has been a void
some deep scar
now is the time
to be paranoid

is everyone wrong
or everyone right
when can we decide
to no longer belong
