lyrics

Verse 1

When I look upon the screen let me tell you what I see
Images of love you send electronically
The outline of your face appears, its features synthesized
A digital transmission I can barely recognize
And all I can hear though the connection is clear
Is the sound of you speaking in machine language to me

Verse 2

In zeros and in ones you communicate with me
We’re trapped inside an endless loop and never can break free
This twenty-first century synthetic ennui
Fills my heart up when I hear the words you say to me
And all I can hear though the connection is clear
Is the sound of you speaking in machine language to me

Chorus (x2)

Machine language
In machine language to me, oh no
It’s strange when you’re
Speaking in machine language to me

Bridge

Tell me now why do we hesitate?
Our love is virtual; that’s why we can’t relate
I search the internet to find a way to start
To unlock the door to your synthetic heart

Verse 3

Now we’re half a world apart and the timing’s out of sync
This virtual affair of ours has brought me to the brink
Just tell me what you need from me and I’ll share my love with you
But deep inside I am afraid it won’t matter what I do
‘Cause all I can hear though the connection is clear
Is the sound of you speaking in machine language to me

Repeat chorus and fade
