“Split” lyrics:

I follow
Where you go
Like your shadow

I’m watching
Through pinholes

When you move, I move, too
Where you go, I go with you
If you move, I move, too

Your secrets
I share them
With my network

Through wires
To trap you
… you

When you’re there, I’m there, too
When you breathe, I breathe with you
When you move, I move, too
When you breathe

You can’t afford
To bite your tongue
But you bit it
And it bled some
And I saw it
I liked it
