about

Inspired by the novel Neuromancer by William Gibson.

lyrics

There are odd things afoot tonight
In the Villa Straylight
A stranger in the corridors
Subterfuge by candlelight

There are odd things afoot tonight
In the Villa Straylight
You had help
From a ghost
Wintermute

Playgrounds hung in space
A castle in orbit over Babylon
Cowboys in cyberspace
To summon a demon you must know its name

There are odd things afoot tonight
In the Villa Straylight
Three notes high and pure
A true name

A seamless universe of self
An experiment in virtual immortality

You had help
