Where Did All Our Data Go?

Full Moon Surprise #18

lyrics

The sun wiped out our hard drives with a massive solar flare
Those few devices which still powered up, turned on to nothing there

Oh no, where did all the data go?

Oh no, where did all our data go?

My granny says the information age became a kind of cage
Facilitating cul-de-sacs of divisiveness and rage
But Granny all your recipes and all those family memories
Suppose there's still some polaroids left over from the seventies

Oh no, where did all the data go?

Oh no, where did all our data go?

We wondered how we got so gullible, how did we get so proud?
To think that we could safely lock our treasures in a cloud

Oh no, where did all the data go?

Oh no, where did all our data go?

So strange when it changed it just vaporized, no rain
Cranked up the old Victrola and we opened up some wine

We sat back on the patio, we'd finally gone off line
Surrendered to the the sunset then the stars began to shine

"Thomas Truax crafts rich, poetically evocative songs about insects, trees, technology, and a lifelong obsession with all things lunar. He travels the world performing with his "band" of bizarre self-made instruments including a motorized drum machine made with bike wheels and a souped-up Gramophone called 'The Hornicator', as well as his venerable guitar 'Hank'.
