Turn any corner. Listen for the sound
Of footsteps behind me. Something's coming down
We know where you're going. We know what you do
We know what you’re thinking. way before you do
We know you by numbers. just zeros and twos
There's no secrets between us now. we know your every move

We've got a list, got your picture on the wall
We know when you rise.And we'll be there when you fall
It's a life by numbers. Just fill in the dots
We've got you from birth. And that's not all that we got
While you wait to be questioned. Here’s a book you can read
It’s got numbers in the title. I’m just not sure what it means

I’m getting old. I don’t belong here any more
I’m just a survivor. Of another cold war
The language changes. The smiles just hide
They see me belonging. to some other side
I’ve fallen in the gap. The digital divide
