lyrics

[Voice-over]
It’s the year 2051 and all material possessions have been replaced digitally. The size of your cloud determines the size of your manhood. When you die, people can put together your story and make a better you!


[Chorus]
You can reconstruct your ancestors’ lives,
Cuz you never know what you're gonna find
Up in the cloud!
People bid on abandoned lives,
Cuz you never know what they've got to hide
Up in the cloud!


It’s safe, you trust a cloud,
You're saving your forgottens in a haven made of cotton,
When you die, you leave your grandkids your cloud,
They can reconstruct your life to what it looks like right now,
Pics of your love child, flicks like Kung Pow,
Your obsession with old press kits from Weird Al,
You had issues but now you're dead,
And they're gonna learn every last secret that you kept,
It’s safe its in a fluffy cloud,
Aren't you glad you've got a place to keep your stuff now?

[Chorus x 2]


People bid on abandoned lives
hoping for a large data size,
And no passwords to keep them out of files,
Cuz they never know what they're gonna find,
Cuz you never know what they've got to hide
Up in the cloud,
We're auctioning storage abound,
from a guy that skipped town with no known relatives,
Now the highest bid wins his cloud,
The auctioneer mouths "place your bids, who has dibs?
Fill your drives with the lives of strangers
from mundane to deranged you're the arranger,
There's no danger, it’s the luck of the draw,
And now you can discover and uncover grandpa,
Make a biopic of his secret life, the topic
Hoarding questionable vids of grandma,
Remember the scare of sharing your data,
‘Til it went into a cloud then it didn't seem to matter...

[Chorus x 2]
You can reconstruct your ancestors’ lives,
Cuz you never know what you're gonna find
Up in the cloud!
People bid on abandoned lives,
Cuz you never know what they've got to hide
Up in the cloud!


Find my pathetic self righteous know how,
Pics of the persuasion known as lowbrow,
Satellite dishes are highly suspicious,
I don't like Citrix but i like cumulonimbus,
We're exposed to malicious cloud hackers,
Selling our identities to crowd-funding backers,
Captors of our digital memoirs,
Coming for yours via cloud storage wars!

You can reconstruct your ancestors’ lives,
Cuz you never know what you're gonna find
Up in the cloud!
People bid on abandoned lives,
Cuz you never know what they've got to hide
Up in the cloud!
