David Lingabee Songs & Songwriting

Song#: 23

Album
Name of Song: Communicate or not?

Choices seem before us,
Communicate or not,
Earlier rejections of
those piercing verbal shots.

Now we have replacements for
talking face to face,
Internet and movies and,
Texting through cyberspace.

Substitutes for living,
They’re everywhere we look,
Shiny and inviting till
We mourn the life it took.

Chorus
I like to see the face of,
Who I’m talking to,
Emotion so a part of life,
Erased from you and you.
If we don’t like emotion,
Then what are we living for,
We fell into the AI trap
that has no life at all.

Bridge
Some regret the old days,
Maybe now too late,
To salvage life so not becomes
too hard to activate.
You may think I am joking,
You may think all over there,
What is around will come around
Infecting with despair.
