Lost and Found

from by Testube



from the greatest minds to my ears,
i get the messages loud and clear
pseudoscientific, phantasmagoric
apocalyptic, euphoric

i'm a voodoo doll
i'm a voodoo doll

prostrate me then elevate me
lead me through a dreadful slime
then decontaminate me
so that i may see what it is i need
i once was lost
but now i'm in the foundry...

all these ways for me to show my face
to stake my claim
to carve out some virtual space
and never be erased

i've got a datafeed to meet my every need
assembled into an identity
information is free
a much cheaper version of integrity

take a really deep look in those eyes
do they deliver what they advertise?
all you people reaching out to me
does it give you some sense of community?

i'd rather be lost
sometimes i'd rather be lost
i think i'd rather be,
but now i'm found

so now i play pretend
and when i reach the end
i'll press rewind and play it all again

commit me to the screen
fashion emergency
a new reality celebrity

collective consciousness
sanitize this mess
am i lost or found?
