Ride the Light

Modulated lasers
For silicon chips
Your virtual head
On the end of a stick

Skyline obscured
By electronic steeple
Threading the eye
Of a fiber-optic needle

Candles sit flickering
On the altar of night
Do yourself a favor, baby
And ride the light

Signal to white noise
White noise to oblivion
No one hears you scream
At the gates of heaven

Plunged in darkness
Dropped down a well
Doesn’t matter who pushed
When everyone fell

There’s a child weeping
Somewhere out of sight
He’d better learn fast
To ride the light

On brink of disaster
On edge of despair
Can’t tear my thoughts away
From the girl with blond hair

She filtered my water
Cleaned my gory left side
Invited me to eat
A meal of cyanide

God as my witness
It just doesn’t seem right
To pay for the privilege
To ride the light
