Electronic Sea (feat. Stic​.​man of Dead Prez)

lyrics

Feeling lost in the electronic sea in the universe?
Electronics capture our consciousness

I remember as a kid thinking about the future
Fast forward living in this age of computers
Everybody in their phones like a solitary cell
We don’t talk with our tongues we just text with our thumbs
Cell towers by the schools giving cancer to the young
And we cancel each other, online you get hung by the jealousy and judgements
Drama to dealt with, and private is public
We’re starving for substance

It’s all one to one
Put down your smoking gun
It’s only what we see
How you choose is what will be
It’s all from the earth
Reflections that we birth
Precious metals salt and sea,
It’s all one it’s you and me

Is a sickness that is coming from
The identification with separateness
With the individual

Modern technology, double edged sword
It’s everywhere at once, impossible to avoid
The whole world connected through the click of a button
We nuke our foods in the microwave ovens
Because it’s quick and convenient
We know the government taking peaks at our email yet we still need it
Fine print we don’t read it, take a bite out of the apple like Eve did in Eden
But where is it leading?

You become identified with your individuality
Then your world is populated by Them
Them is distant from You

At the end of the day, all roads lead home
Dorothy meets the Wiz, it is what it is
Perception is everything, waking up in the dream
We project what we think, but it’s not what it seems
Every cell every atom is connected like team
We are one in this ocean of life with many streams
Be empowered by the tool but don’t let it use you
Can’t Google self-knowledge
Be your own guru

On the other hand
You can identify with all of it
The universe
Or the One
The One is god

The electronics are us
They’re not Them
See yourself as part of a culture
As part of nature
As part of the universe
As part of god

Our consciousness is one
Your consciousness and my consciousness
It’s one
