lyrics

The last of the old folks
are leaving behind
A boy who's as young as
the digital divide.

The cloud's the place he goes to retire
What of the suburbs he no longer requires?

When he inherits his ancestral house,
He'll let it crumble with the click of a mouse

He lives to watch his life online
Wasting his time cause he'll never die.

The last of the old folks
are leaving behind
A boy who's as young as
the digital divide.

He's catching up to expectancy time.
Could be the last of his people to die.

Don't care for love when he's always engaged,
no getting bored when he can reload the page.

He's giving up, as populations grow.
forgetting all that generations know.

The last of the old folks
are leaving behind
A boy who's as young as
the digital divide.

Why live in fear of mortality's eye
when he can blind it with the cut of a wire?

With no more fear of what he cannot control
he needn't hear what he's gonn a be told

By moving out, expanding into space
He's losing out of the human race
