Technology Fails

When technology fails
You call so early in the morning
Say, Œwe gotta get out of here, baby,
They broke the sky
And now it’s all filled with razors.

Technology fails
And all the armies of the Earth
Fight without electricity
And all that’s left when the smoke is cleared
Is the hatred and the bones and the teeth
Yeah

I said ohhh
Baby I’ve been meaning to tell you
All the things that you really mean to me
Why don’t you turn off your signal and
Come with me into the deep

When technology fails
And they burn all your possessions
My life was so tangled, baby
Now it’s finally clear
I just drove ’till I lost my reception

Technology fails

So we fall back on our languages
And all across the country
They can’t read or write a word
So we write history in broken sentences
Technology fails

I said ohhh
Baby I’ve been meaning to tell you
All the things that you really meant to me
But they burned all your photographs
So now you’re the only one to see

All around the world
All the little boys and girls
They already know
What we’ve been afraid of saying
When it all ends
When it ends
It’s going to end

When technology fails
Communications finally clear
The sun bounces off
Your sunburnt eyes
When the radio’s silent
And the cell phone has died

And the earth is contrite
And the earth is alone
In the company of darkness
There’s a love deep as bone
Deep as bone

I said ohhh
Baby I’ve been meaning to tell you
All the things that you really meant to me
Why don’t you turn off your signal and
Come with me into the deep

Patience with this modern world, dear.
