“I Am Tracking You” is the third track in a cybersecurity series that highlights the dangers of losing privacy through technology. With decades of experience in tackling complex security issues, the producers of this track specifically focus on the dangers of spyware and how it can steal personal information and leave individuals vulnerable to serious threats. The song features dubstep and EDM elements. Through its powerful lyrics and haunting sound, “I Am Tracking You” warns listeners about the potential consequences of being monitored through the technology they use on a daily basis.
The threat of spyware has made it into the awareness of the public as governments avail themselves of these tools to spy on journalists, human rights activists and their political opponents.
We wanted to convey a powerful message about the dangers of surveillance and digital privacy invasion. The lyrics serve as a cautionary tale, depicting a world where privacy is threatened by a malicious actor using spyware and hacking tools to gain access to personal information. The song references the notorious NSO Group, a company known for its Pegasus spyware, to highlight the real-world implications of such threats. Our intention with this song is to raise awareness of the ever-present dangers to our digital privacy, reminding listeners to be vigilant in safeguarding their personal information. By doing so, we hope to inspire more discussions and actions around online security and privacy protection.
Intro: I saw you slept alone last night Your bedroom looking like a dark and lonely sight You took a shower with your phone And won’t expect it when your secrets become known Verse 1: Will you tell me now, Can you disavow Can't hide it cause I know your secrets Got a hundred ways With our zero days Don't fight it cause I know your secrets My spyware takes complete control You'll never even kno-oooh-wo-oah Bring you misery, Get you on your knees Bought your history, no click required PreChorus: And our name may not be NSO But They’re gonna get me what you owe Your privacy all gone in just one blow And soon you will know Chorus: I’m tracking you. It's what I do. I know you can't see but I’m watching you. Your secrets are all mine to sell Even if you lock your phone away, I will break inside it anyways Cause I’m watching you. Oohh I'm tracking you. Verse Two: Never safe again Didn’t know back then Secret wars that are fought cloaked in darkness We control your fate Capture all your state, if you Surrender then I will be gentle And there is nothing you can do-oo My target will be you-oooh There is no recourse Even less remorse You’re rooted and are mine forever PreChorus: And our name may not be NSO But They’re gonna get me what you owe Your privacy all gone in just one blow And soon you will know Chorus: I’m tracking you. It's what I do. I know you can't see but I’m watching you. Your secrets are all mine to sell Even if you lock your phone away, I will break inside it anyways Cause I’m watching you. Oohh Cause I’m tracking you. Watching you. I am tracking you. I’m watching you. Tracking you. Watching you. I am tracking you. Watching you. I am tracking you. I’m watching you. I’m tracking you.
