Every part of the city
is one component of the system

How the skyscrapers' tower lights glimmer on and off throughout the night,
how the smog drifts upward in a tortured lethargy,
how the streetlights change without a second thought,
how the city comes to a standstill as the people sleep

Dreaming, dreaming,
only to wake up the next day
for their daily assigned tasks,
an artificial manmade cycle of missions
and objectives that will never truly be put to rest
