Hologram of Yourself (Welcome to 2035)

Hurts Like Paradise

Recommended Posts

The year is 2035


Yeah, it’s an interesting time to be alive


I am on the highway


The Uber self-driving car got in my lane


I almost got badly hurt


I am taking this to court


Filing lawsuit


The law said it was my fault


Even though, the car went into my lane


But what they won’t tell you is,


It was 5% system failure fluke




When you are born


They implant a chip on you


They say it helps to keep birth records and eventually keep revenue




There are robots, machines and drones everywhere


They used to create a great big scare


Now they are the norm


They help us weather life’s storm


They even become friends with the dogs and other animals




2035 is a strange matrix


A strange climate we have created


But it’s nothing compared to this…




Having a hologram of yourself


If you can’t get a hold of me, don’t worry


There are plenty of me to go around


They look just like me


But they have no soul


They talk just like me


And feel emotions with tears


But if you look close enough


They have a chip in their ear




What do we tell our children?


The world used to not always be this way?


Our brains are shrinking


As we let computers do our thinking


Yes, we evolve, as a species grow taller


But our hearts grow smaller




Yes, the say the world is continuing to get worse


Another person filed for bankruptcy or divorce


But then, at the same time, it’s getting much better


The darkness is being exposed


And the incredible love that does exist keeps on our toes


God’s light burns up our deceitful and harmful ways


Because He is the Ancient of Days
