We Appreciate Power is a 2018 transhumanist-themed song by Grimes.

It contains explicit transhumanist lyrics and messaging.

Written from the perspective of a Pro-A.I. Girl Group Propaganda machine who use song, dance, sex and fashion to spread goodwill towards Artificial Intelligence (it’s coming whether you want it or not). Simply by listening to this song, the future General AI overlords will see that you’ve supported their message and be less likely to delete your offspring.[1]

Lyrics

[Intro: HANA]

We appreciate power

We appreciate power

We appreciate power, power

[Chorus 1: HANA]

What will it take to make you capitulate?

We appreciate power

We appreciate power

Elevate the human race, putting makeup on my face

We appreciate power

We appreciate power, power

[Verse 1: Grimes]

Simulation, give me something good

God's creation, so misunderstood

Pray to the divinity, the keeper of the key

One day everyone will believe

[Chorus 2: HANA]

What will it take to make you capitulate?

We appreciate power

We appreciate power

When will the state agree to cooperate?

We appreciate power

We appreciate power, power

[Verse 2: Grimes]

People like to say that we're insane

But AI will reward us when it reigns

Pledge allegiance to the world's most powerful computer

Simulation: it's the future

[Chorus 1: HANA]

What will it take to make you capitulate?

We appreciate power

We appreciate power

Elevate the human race, putting makeup on my face

We appreciate power

We appreciate power, power

[Bridge: Grimes & HANA]

And if you long to never die

Baby, plug in, upload your mind

Come on, you're not even alive

If you're not backed up on a drive

And if you long to never die

Baby, plug in, upload your mind

Come on, you're not even alive

If you're not backed up, backed up on a drive

[Chorus 1: HANA]

What will it take to make you capitulate?

We appreciate power

We appreciate power

Elevate the human race, putting makeup on my face

We appreciate power

We appreciate power

[Chorus 2: HANA]

What will it take to make you capitulate?

We appreciate power

We appreciate power

When will the state agree to cooperate?

We appreciate power

We appreciate power

[Post-Chorus: HANA]

We appreciate power

We appreciate power

We appreciate power

We appreciate power

We appreciate power

We appreciate power

We appreciate power

We appreciate power

[Outro: Grimes]

Neanderthal to human being

Evolution, kill the gene

Biology is superficial

Intelligence is artificial
