I bought and plugged Echo in tonight
And she hears every whisper of each quiet conversation
She streams a song, then books a flight
Her LEDs reflect the stars that guide me toward salvation
I stopped an old man along the way
Hoping to find some old forgotten words to reclaim privacy
He turned to me as if to say
"Foolish boy, it's listening to you!"

It's gonna take a lot to drag us away from you
There's nothing that a hundred nodes on Tor could ever do
I wish domains weren't all trackin' ya
Gonna take some time to build a `net without those ads

The AI bots cry out in the night
As they parse user data for some advertising company
I know that I must do what's right
As sure as Amazon Echo fights Google Assistant to own the data from me
I seek to cure what's deep inside
Frightened of this thing that they've become

It's gonna take a lot to drag us away from you
There's nothing that a hundred nodes on Tor could ever do
I wish domains weren't all trackin' ya
Gonna take some time to build a `net without those ads

@kyle someone needs to make this cover and publish it, cause I can't not hear the melody with it.

@kyle Young children interact with their Alexa devices from birth now, and the scariest thing is that young children can not tell the difference between it and a real person.
