I-So-Type

Everything you've ever seen
Photographs and magazines
Vivid color, black and white
All reduced to isotypes

Everything you've ever said
All the thoughts inside your head
Travel at the speed of light
Now compressed in isotypes

I-So-Type
I-So-Type
I-So-Type
I-So-Type
I-So-Type

All the words you used to write
Treasured spirits taking flight
Sovereign and now shining bright
All replaced by Isotypes

Every fallen hope and dream
Each precious word perfect theme
Sullen shades of endless night
All reduced to isotypes

I-So-Type?
