If only I could mute the world
Or pause, rewind or press delete.
Such things I’d do, such work, such art,
If I could mute the world.
If only I could press reboot
Escape, refresh or hard reset.
Such wrongs I’d right, such crap, such dross,
If I could press reboot.
If only I could download skills,
Input, key in or just compute.
Such flair I’d gain, such gifts … know-how,
If I could download skills.
If only I could leave the grid,
Shut down, log out or pull the plug.
Such sky I’d see, such light, such life,
If I could leave the grid.
