The Veldt (8 Minute Edit)

Lyrics

Happy life with the machines scattered around the room
Look what they made, they made it for me happy, technology
Outside the lions roam, feeding on remains
We'll never leave, look at us now
full lyrics
Happy life with the machines scattered around the room
Look what they made, they made it for me happy, technology

The lyrics are based on a ray Bradbury short story of the same name. The children in the story kill their parents using a virtual reality playroom.
I love this song
The lyrics to this song are so true, I can't believe all the machines that they've made. Is it real or is it a dream?

Don't read this, because it actually works. Apparently , if you read a post like this:
-Dont read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. However if you don't post you will die in 2 days now you've started reading this so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in the next 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters ...- you will get f**kin' pissed off and annoyed.

The meaning of this song is disturbing if you read what its based on which is that short story by Ray Bradbury.
I love this song <3333333
The person who said 8:45 of this.... The original song is 11 minutes obviously you don't understand the concept of progressive house
Your practically in a trance and u dont even know it <3
whipej
Love it
Wow, 8:45 of this.... too much
puts u in a trance ❤
That's not the origin of the song at all, @that dirpish girl with the Bart Simpson ahirt
Love this song
I didn't know this song was based on the story before, and then I read it.... it was creepy as heck. The lyrics (and story) are about this family who live in a home where technology does practically everything for them, and there's a room where the children of the family (Peter and Wendy, or sumthin like that) can create any place they want, and the 'rents die. Teh end.
The meaning is a short disturbing story. Or the meaning of the word is a elevated open grassland in southern Africa.
Does anyone know the story to how Chris James got to have his vocals used in this song? And does anyone know the meaning of the lyrics? Il bet not!
Amazing vocals
