"You Wouldn’t Believe What Kinds of Bacteria Reside in the Most Familiar of Places"

[HAN MI:] (spoken)

Far under the city lies a room where once, great AIs lived and conducted experiments and journeys into time and other dimensions. Though the AIs are gone now, most of them lying in scraps and pieces around the dark cavernous room, there are things that glow even now, and odd, otherworldly energies hanging silently in the air, leaks from doors never properly closed

Thus it is that little silicon and metal creatures crawl about the floor and walls of this underworld, this afterlife of forlorn and neglected cyber information

[CREATURES:]

Crawling in the black, little larva writhing, gnats
And bugs of metal, plastic, that live out our lives in the black
We're born and grow, attract a mate of silicone and brass
And die and generations pass down in our twilight vast

Crawling in the black, Lithe and vast
Little larva writhing, gnats our caverns glow
And bugs of metal, plastic
That live out our lives in the black
We're born and grow, Twilight world we try to grasp
Attract a mate of silicone and brass
And die and generations pass down
In our twilight vast

In our vast dark room of night, Life in vast dark caverns black
A world of our own A twilight world we try to grasp
Species made of broken parts We wish and long, until at last
Wake and crawl and hope We decompose, our moment past
In our realm of shades and echoes, Life in vast dark caverns black
Love and fear and war A twilight world we try to grasp
Play out in abandoned rooms We wish and long, until at last
Beneath the city's shores We decompose, our moment past

In our vast dark room of night, a world of our own
Species made of broken parts wake and crawl and hope
In our realm of shades and echoes, Crawling in the black, little larva writhing, gnats
Love and fear and war And bugs of metal, plastic, that live out our lives in the black
Play out in abandoned rooms We're born and grow, attract a mate of silicone and brass
Beneath the city's shores And die and generations pass down
In our twilight vast
