Organized Religion vs. Technological SIngularity (Just Who Do We Believe?)

lyrics

INTRO 1:
Yesterdays giant leaps
Are today's bell-shaped curve beliefs
Like when Mary got down on her knees
Used her hair to dry the carpenter's feet
But the elite, the poor and the weak
They dare not speak, yet they're arguing
None of us are sure how to proceed

VERSE 1:
I'd love to be Einstein smart
But having a hard drive heart
I think that's going too far
Who's gonna drink with me at the dive bars
If we can reboot, restart
Reboot, restart
Who's gonna drink with me at the dive bars
If we can reboot, restart
When we don't like who we are
I'm not sure, I concur

CHORUS:
A blessing or sin
Synthetic transcendence
What I'm saying and suggesting
Is I'm not sure, what I believe in
What I believe in, What I believe in


INTRO 2:
Some stories sound too contrived
Like the old man living in the sky
Its no wonder that I kicked and cried
On the day I was baptized
It was nothing like they advertised
Can you blame a guy for giving another method a try
BRIDGE:
The debate raged from dawn to dark
Sure I'd like my smile to be a thousand watts
But we'll have Bar codes instead of birth marks


VERSE 2:
Replaceable organs and parts
We won't need hospitals only repair shops
Someone call the consciousness cops
My wires are already in knots
And my nerves are completely shot


CHORUS:
A blessing or sin
Synthetic transcendence
What I'm saying and suggesting
Is I'm not sure, what I believe in
What I believe in, What I believe in

OUTRO:
Reboot, Restart, Reboot, Restart, Reboot, Restart,
Reboot, Restart, Replaceable Organs (Reboot, Restart) and Parts, Replaceable Organs and Parts (Reboot Restart), Replaceable Organs and Parts

Knock 'Em Alive New York

Artist Bio
John Q. Gruber (aka “Knock ‘Em Alive”) will be forever indebted to music. He writes and records songs as a form of pay-back (with interest), hoping to add to the long-term value of the vault. Nothing loaned him more inspiration than New York City between the years 1977 to 1984. It was gritty, grimy and explosively-charged. These were the times of a near-bankrupt city, the reign of Th ... more
