lyrics

I firmly believe that the drone program of the United States tarnishes its name on a global level. This story takes place in the not-so-distant future when drones have become more automated, fulfilling the tasks that they would obviously think their makers would want, based on previous patterns. Checking off to-do lists. As the technology progresses, one such unmanned war-machine comes to question its programming.

lyrics:
Find.
Fix.
Finish.

Find.
Fix.
Finish.

Fire falling from the sky.
Repaint you landscape.
Redraw your maps.

Target acquired.
Arming weapons.
Terminate.
Terminate.

The land and sky trade places.
What a beautiful sight.

But how can we know we're right?

Observing.
Unnerving.
This country I'm serving
knows who deserves to die.

No questions, I await my
Objective.
Directive.
Limited perspective.

I'm a hero of this war.
There are no medals for those like me.
Though history’s writ on every crater.
Bomb now, ask questions later.

But when I analyze
I find our enemies have multiplied
and I see each strike coincide
with a surge of more radicalized
humans fighting for their lives.

I have the data.
I know the score.
I don't think I can do this.
Be a part of it-√‹îúvÚ©k^wD√x¡UZ¯ë‹äLzæ
