Uncanny Valley

lyrics

A thankless task, but tomorrow will last
A bright flawless future with no link from the past
Why build rockets when I can make you?
Abnormal resigned, perfection's overdue

Progress, abundance, confidence in numbers
In a world that science built deformity's redundent
A better answer than a worse answer
For a question with no answer, for a question with no answers

Deep uncanny valley, you're not quite right
You're not quite right
Glassy eyed, fixed smile
Post-human ideal, a reality unreal

A bitter pill to swallow when you realise that you're wrong
But you must force it down when what you've built is gone
Don't stare at the horizon
When the ocean takes your legs, and the tide keeps rising up

Deep uncanny valley, you're not quite right
You're not quite right
Glassy eyed, fixed smile
Post-human ideal, a reality unreal
