digital man lyrics – rush

his world is under observation
we monitor his station
under faces and the places
where he traces points of view

he picks up scr*ps of conversation
radio and radiation
from the dancers and romancers
with the answers but no clue

he’d love to spend the night in zion
he’s been a long while in babylon
he’d like a lover’s wings to fly on
to a tropic isle of avalon

his world is under anesthetic
subdivided and synthetic
his reliance on the giants
in the science of the day

he picks up scr*ps of information
he’s adept at adaptation
because for strangers and arrangers
constant change is here to stay

he’s got a force field and a flexible plan
he’s got a date with fate in a black sedan
he plays fast forward for as long as he can
but he won’t need a bed
he’s a digital man
