Chapman, Tracy - Hard Wired Lyrics




Your wants desires
Needs and wishes
Will be duly noted
Processed filed and cataloged
Labeled and encoded
Turned into sitcom dialog
And advertising slogans

We've got a box to put in your brain
Hard wired for downloading
All the secrets and the mysteries
You've been selfishly withholding

The dreams and hopes
That once were yours
Will now be collected and dispersed
So the first to come with cash to spend
Will be the first one served

We've got a box to put in your brain
Hard wired for downloading
All the secrets and the mysteries
You've been selfishly withholding

Make you think you like to be watched
Displayed on the auction block
Invaded in your own home
Stripped naked on the television
Humiliated in front of millions

We've got a box to put in your brain
Hard wired for downloading
All the secrets and the mysteries
You've been selfishly withholding

We've got a box to put in your brain
We've got a box to put in your brain
We've got a box to put in your brain
We've got a box to put in your brain

Your wants desires
Needs and wishes
Will be duly noted

    Everytime I listen to this song, an image of Sarah Baartman is painted before my eyes.

  2. Jim Davis

    This is an amazingly prophetic song. The world Tracey Chapman wrote about is the one we live in today -- but this song is from way back in 2002!

    An underrated gem buried a rather obscure album.
