lyrics

Silicon Valley Of The Dolls

We are crawling to the light on broken glass -
where the future somehow turned into the past.
We could be digging ourselves holes, so very fast,
Is this the birth of an emerging underclass?

There will be witchcraft - and full-on wizardry.
Welcome to The Parallel University.

Into the silicon valley of the dolls,
Where masters can be slaves, or so I'm told.
It's the Silicon valley of the dolls,
where they cleanse all the graffiti from your soul.

Give me all your chemistry and teach me how to use it,
I need to lose the smoking bomb, so how can I defuse it?

In squeaky-clean distopian dreams of marble shopping malls,
the dispossessed behind grey bricks, inside the castle walls.
The government mobsters suck them dry with mystic pizza pi.
And the geeks inherit nothing much – they just get fried before the fall.

There will be witchcraft - and full-on wizardry.
Welcome to The Parallel University.
In to the silicon valley of the dolls,
Where masters can be slaves, or so I'm told.
It's the silicon valley of the dolls.
where they cleanse all the graffiti from your soul.

Silicon valley, silicon valley of the dolls.
Silicon valley, silicon valley of the dolls.
