he walks a lonely road
the only one who perl still even knows
he writes his code
but it's only him, and he codes alone

he sees his perly screen
on the monitor of mono-green
a typo CIG
and he's the only one, and he codes alone

he codes alone, he codes alone
he codes alone and he codes a-

/etc/shadow's as new as the lang he's using
his scripting starts as soon as he's in
sometimes he'd wish the syntax wasn't blinding
till then he codes alone

ah ah, ah ah, ahhh-ah
ah ah, ah ah

he's coding another line
that references a function way behind
another "or die" ends a failed find
of one who writes this code

read comments that shine
explain fucked up fixes when a process dies
log a debug sign to know the hiccup's just fine
and he codes alone

he codes alone, he codes alone
he codes alone and he codes a-

stares at his text, green
on the lines of his CRT
where the old language sleeps
and he's the only one, and he codes alone

boulevard of broken screens
