02 Daydream of the 8-Bit Time Machine

Lyrics

Player 1:
I'm daydreaming of finding meaning
Finding meaning in the machine
These sensations that once gripped my attention
What's the reason for this vivid retention?

If I could
I'd step into that 8-bit time machine
And travel back
To the Summer of 1983

If that world came back around
I'd reach out and touch
The colors and sounds
That once mattered so much

If I could
I'd step into that 8-bit time machine
And travel back
To the Summer of 1983
But it's just a daydream… or is it?

Act I, Scene 1

The year is 2013. Player 1, a mid-career geek-for-hire, is sitting in front of his computer, daydreaming about simpler technology from 30 years ago: the Atari 2600.

Can he rediscover the mysterious passion that drove his childhood obsession? And what will he find if he does?
