Lyrics for “Cyberspace”

I posted my new tune Cyberspace on Soundcloud about two months ago.  The lyrics were taken from a passage in William Gibson’s Neuromancer.  If you haven’t read this book I recommend it highly. [1]

I thought some might be interested in seeing the original words so I’ve reproduced a copy of the page I used as my cue sheet when I recorded this song.  If you look closely you can see the pencil markings that, in addition to Gibson’s punctuation, guided my phrasing of this paragraph.

[1] “Here is the novel that started it all, launching the cyberpunk generation, and the first novel to win the holy trinity of science fiction: the Hugo Award, the Nebula Award and the Philip K. Dick Award. With Neuromancer, William Gibson introduced the world to cyberspace–and science fiction has never been the same.”
