Laughing was always me
But somehow it had a cost we cut it down to three
You use to smile your face next to mine
Now we write it out a two dots and a line
Our faces blank with dignity emotion would betray
Our fragile hearts in honesty borne weakly to the fray
Nuspeak for the everyone you’re signed up for free
Nuspeaks got the answers leave your questions at the door
You had a language once that was beautiful
Sometimes less has a greater cost than more
You’re trading your dreams for an empty sleep
Convenience for a starless sky
A world without the magic of you in front of I

How many do you need when is enough to get your hit
Whenever I am breaking it takes only one to see where all my pieces fit
Drowning in opinions none of which are solid ground
Strangers casting shadows
Yelling shapes that have no sound

Nuspeak for the everyone you’re signed up for free
Nuspeaks got the answers leave your questions at the door
You had a language once that was beautiful
Sometimes less has a greater cost than more
You’re trading your dreams for an empty sleep
Convenience for a starless sky
A world without the magic of you in front of I

We speak to each other across a crowded space
While the ones who stand next to us disappear without a trace
I think its time we looked at what is written down
Stop thinking that letters only make a typing sound
What you say will echo through more than just your cares
Your name is so much more than something that floats along the air

Nuspeak for the everyone you’re signed up for free
Nuspeaks got the answers leave your questions at the door
You had a language once that was beautiful
Sometimes less has a greater cost than more
You’re trading your dreams for an empty sleep
Convenience for a starless sky
A world without the magic of you in front of I
