Paraphysique du cyberespace

Cybermonde de la malveillance
C'est partout le règne de la finance
Cybersurveillance de masse
Toute vie est en ligne
Les services secrets en sont l'indigne
Et des réseaux officiels de délinquance
Dans tous les logiciels du capital, cela passe
Les données de l'identité
L'identité de toutes les données
Tout y est enregistré
Tout y est archivé
Tout y est analysé
Comme une sorte de bétail
Qu'il faut dresser vaille que vaille
Toute une surveillance numérique
