Replicants

Startled in the headlights
Shadows in the spectral night
Violence is all around
You are screaming but no sound comes out
A father, a father’s rage
Made me want to hide away
At the checkpoint keeping still
In the back seat keeping still

Memories, remnants of the pain
They are lost like tears in the rain
I watch you cry but I don’t feel a thing
Disconnect, shutting down again

System override
Footsteps falling outside
Deception is in your eyes
Reflections in the neon night
Flicker of empathy
The weakness of humanity
The truth is she never died
Oh Rebecca, she never died

Memories, remnants of the pain
They are lost like tears in the rain
I watch you cry but I don’t feel a thing
Disconnect, shutting down again

The sunset’s triggering instilled memories
Recurring images, all the things I’ve seen
Time to regenerate and break free

Memories, remnants of the pain
They are lost like tears in the rain
I watch you cry but I don’t feel a thing
Disconnect, shutting down again
Memories, remnants of the pain
They are lost, shutting down again
