I bring you love and deeper understanding

augustus 16, 2007

Kate Bush, she’s such a pioneer… In 1989 she had a song “Deeper Understanding” on her cd “The Sensual World”… It’s a song about the internet and how people use it to contact other people and begin to live their lives behind the computer instead of real life friends and addiction and stuff… The funny thing is that the big crowed discovered the internet only in the 90’s… I wonder how Kate knew it would end up this way!

Here’s the lyrics and the song

As the people here grow colder
I turn to my computer
And spend my evenings with it
Like a friend.

I was loading a new programme
I had ordered from a magazine:

“Are you lonely, are you lost?
This voice console is a must.”
I press Execute.

“Hello, I know that you’ve been feeling tired.
I bring you love and deeper understanding.
Hello, I know that you’re unhappy.
I bring you love and deeper understanding.”

Well I’ve never felt such pleasure.
Nothing else seemed to matter.
I neglected my bodily needs.

I did not eat, I did not sleep,
The intensity increasing,
‘Til my family found me and intervened.

But I was lonely, I was lost,
Without my little black box.
I pick up the phone and go, Execute.

“Hello, I know that you’ve been feeling tired.
I bring you love and deeper understanding.
Hello, I know that you’re unhappy.
I bring you love and deeper understanding.”

I turn to my computer like a friend.
I need deeper understanding.
Give me deeper understanding.
