Different Lingo

Distant and awkward

Loose wire connection

Dial up for response

Flicker then leave

 

Cradle the handset

Nurture the output

Believe in networks

Link-up, link-down

 

Four walls surround us

Four walls protect us

Beams go through the roof

Fragment then sleep

 

Voices become merged

Faces are symbols

Different lingo

Different dreams

 

Five generations

Lived here before us

And five thousand more
