about

A filked cover of Sexuality by Billy Bragg, via the Pet Shop Boys and the Radiophonic workshop.

This song was written in 2008 after 2t0nic, Nat's first UK filk convention.

Loosely inspired by the revolutionaries in Singularity Sky by Charles Stross (2003).

lyrics

It's causing revelations,
Affecting all the nations
It frees the masses,
Collapsing social classes
All your wants will go away,
Now we have cornucopiæ
So if you stick with me,
You'll see the end of our economy

Singularity - rapid, changing, wild and free
Singularity - accelerates humanity

A numbered bank account offshored at Cayman
How do you control the workers if you can't just pay them?
I had an uncle who once worked as a Home Office clerk
He said some people just need to know their place
But I have higher standards for the human race

Singularity - sudden, shocking, liberty
Singularity - your laws cannot apply to me
Singularity - can't threaten me with poverty
Singularity - a new ad hoc society

I'm sure you're finding everything a little overwhelming
You've seen the world turned upside down while a new one is unfolding
You feel a total berk because your life's revolved around work

Work! Work! Work!...

You're getting weighed down
By all this information
Post-want doesn't mean no wants,
It just means use your imagination

Start augmenting yourselves, transcend the flesh
I look like a superhero fused with a mech from Macross Zero

Singularity - liberating, wild and free
Singularity - your laws cannot apply to me
Singularity - come eat and drink and dream with me
Singularity - we can be what we want to be
