I'm So in Love with the Surveillance State

lyrics

your paranoia is a gift
stare down the camera in the lift
and your neighbours looking shifty
as you adjust the blinds
the microphones recording
every single whispered word
and the van with the blacked out windows
that parks outside at night, might know you heard

I’m so in love, I’m so in love with the surveillance state
I’m so in love, so so in love with the surveillance state

I saw the photos that you took
I heard your album, read your electronic book
every day I’m fascinated, got to take a look
within the treadmills of your mind
HMRC recording
every keystroke every click
and we’re closer than we’ve ever been now
the thought of life without it makes me sick

I’m so in love, I’m so in love with the surveillance state
I’m so in love, so so in love with the surveillance state

Your status is a calculated lie
people are vulnerable people are sly
if they work out how to incontrovertibly verify
you could be in a legal bind
stenotypist is recording
every statement you construct
now you’re looking at a long time inside
the data do not lie and you’re as guilty as fuck

I’m so in love, I’m so in love with the surveillance state
I’m so in love, so so in love with the surveillance state
I’m so in love, I’m so in love with the surveillance state
I’m so in love, so so in love with the surveillance state
I’m so in love, I’m so in love with the surveillance state
I’m so in love, so so in love with the surveillance state
I’m so in love, I’m so in love with the surveillance state
I’m so in love, so so in love with the surveillance state
