There's a way to live that's right for us

Like Mayans in Manhattan and Los Angeles

I'm scaling up, I'm breaking down

And I'm doing lunch all over town


Networking, I'm user friendly

Networking, I install with ease

Data processed, truly Basic

I will upload you, you can download me


There's a long hard road and a full hard drive

And a sector there where I feel alive

Every bit and every byte

Is written down once on the night


Networking, I'm user friendly

Networking, I install with ease

Data processed, truly Basic

I will upload you, you can download me


There's a prayer each night that I always pray

Let the data guide me through every day

And every pulse and every code

Deliver me from the bypass mode


Networking, I'm user friendly

Networking, I install with ease

Data processed, truly Basic

I will upload you, you can download me
