A rock/drum and bass track about the surveillance state.


i copy all your fingers
and measure every line
now when you touch anything
you leave a trail behind

i load your proof of being
on to a tiny chip
which i can make you carry
and read across the street

i know who you are
and i know what you dream
and i know what you think
and i know how you feel

i'm always watching you
i'm always watching you
i'm always watching you
i'm always watching you

you sign in to my service
which i give you for free
then sell your soul for billions
now you belong to me

you pay for broadband access
that's not enough for me
i watch and sell your click trail
tax what you'd like to see

you better hope i'm perfect
and those who work for me
in case my data's stolen
by people worse than me

you may have voted for me
i may have held your trust
but know knowledge is power
and power can corrupt
