As you awoke this morning
And opened up your eyes
Did you notice the tear-stains
Lining your face were mine

Don't you wonder, can't you see
What's happening to our lives
I can't keep living this masquerade
When my lonely eyes see only your face at night

I only see in infrared
I can't dream anymore
Cant you see I need, too
I can't stand the pain

Youve gathered all my secrets
And I don't know who I am
I even feel alone when you're near
Cause you'll never understand

When we first met I must have seemed
A million miles away
Its strange how our lives have touched
But the time is right
Ill leave tonight
Don't look in my eyes
Cause youve never seen them so black

I only see in infrared
I can't dream anymore
Cant you see I need to
I can't stand the pain

    His consciousness is still part human, but he is being consumed by the singularity. Computers and human awareness are merging. He is tortured by the fact that he cannot experience the physical aspects of love anymore.
