"No Point in Being Extra About it: New Albion 11"

[MEME:]

There’s a city they all say
That’s seen its share of times insane
But it marches with a twitch or two
Onward through its days

Its streets glow in the dark
Hybrid things live in the park
A counter culture, folks with cyborg alterations gone too far

The best flash mob that's around
Who appears all over town
A group of acapella c*ckroaches that sing for startled crowds

There’s two holographic ads
Who they say may have gone mad
Just like Bonnie and Clyde, fell in love and gone bad

This is the time of lights and neon
This is the time of talk and tech
This is the future come to dine tonight
Like an unwanted guest
This is the time of screens and marvels
This is the time of cybersex
This is the rave you won't remember
These are the days you won’t forget

Rumors say that deep beneath
A second city lives and breathes
Where there live luddite albinos and a dazzling red haired queen

But the tunnels have been searched
And just a dark stone gate unearthed
But you must ingest a drug and then walk through it for it to work

The best hacker here for sure
Is known as Chezehor 34
And vile, vicious people on the dark net he destroys

Criminals that he's brought down
Have tried in vain to track him down
But his real life name is Nicholas and he's just a mouse

This is the time of cyber wonder
This is the time you can’t resist
This the sweet online addiction
That gives you that cybernetic kiss
This is the time that you were dazzled
This is the time that you were blissed
This is the lonely morning after
This is the time that you can’t miss

An atheist religion reigns
The fashion industry these days
All the models and designers are all members, so they say

Their rituals provide a way
To switch genders every day
And binary identity renounced in every way

There's a boy who's been kicked out
From the college hereabouts
For garish flesh enhancements and extreme mutating cells

He dreams he'll find a way
To rewrite your DNA
Change your form, your shape and brand new bio-species thus create

This is the time of lights and neon
This is the time of talk and tech
This is the future come to dine tonight
Like an unwanted guest
This is the time of screens and marvels
This is the time of cybersex
This is the rave you won’t remember
These are the days you won't forget
