lyrics

I walk up to you at the bar
but I don’t know what to say.
You look at me and roll your eyes,
then just laugh and walk away.

Now, I know I’m not the kind of guy,
you think you want to date.
But, in the future I’ll find a way
for us to communicate.

When we’re uploaded to computers
and we leave this meat behind,
We will forget about our bodies
and you’ll see me for my mind.

And in the singularity,
you will be in love with me.
Someday we will be together
in virtual reality.

And in the singularity,
you will be in love with me.
When our lives are digitized
you'll see that this is how it’s supposed to be.

I’ll hold your hand as we walk together
down a pixelated beach.
Then I’ll fly you to another world
There’s no star that we can’t reach.

But I'm sorry I have to kidnap you
and put you in my machine.
So that I can become
the man of your dreams.

When we’re uploaded to computers
and we leave this meat behind,
We will forget about our bodies
and you’ll see me for my mind.

And in the singularity,
you will be in love with me.
Someday we will be together
in virtual reality.

And in the singularity,
you will be in love with me.
When our lives are digitized
you'll see that this is how it’s supposed to be.

And we’ll share each other’s thoughts.
No secrets will be lost.
Just please don’t check browser history.

‘Cause I think your avatar
is the most beautiful by far.
But could she be a little thinner?

I love you babe, but I don’t like
you interfacing with other guys.
Don't you appreciate how I saved you?
Yeah I’m your hero and you’re my prize.

But you say, "I’m not just some achievement,
your princess is in another castle.
But maybe you will find someone
if you stop being such an asshole."

So in the singularity,
you won’t be in love with me.
Maybe it’s not about my looks
maybe it’s just my personality.

Why in the singularity,
you won’t be in love with me.
When our lives are digitized
I’ll see that this is how it’s supposed to be.
