Filk: No Phone Lasts… ttto “Into the West” by Annie Lennox

Written at Conflikt 5 and first performed in the Smoked Salmon filk around 9pm on January 29, 2012.

Lay down
your beat and weary set.
Sound is failing,
it has come to journey’s end.
Seek new,
think not of ones that came before.
I am calling
across from the grocery store.

Why do you keep
that crappy phone you must replace?
Soon you will see
all of your fears will pass away;
smartphones won’t harm.
It’s only beeping…

What do you see
in that Verizon?
Why does it drop your calls?
Just cross the street,
your signal rises.
The shipment’s come,
they have your new phone,
and calls will turn
to clear as glass.
A light in the corner,
no phone lasts…

Screen fades,
goes blank and dark as night.
GPS failing,
out of memory and time.
Don’t say “I will get there in the end.”
Your friends are calling
so you and they can meet again.

And you’ll be here, where it’s warm,
not seeking…

What do you see
in that Verizon?
Why does it drop your calls?
Just cross the street,
your signal rises.
The shipment’s come,
they have your new phone,
and calls will turn
to clear as glass.
A light in the corner…
Get here fast!
Droids are the best.
