Track Name: Robot People
little susie down the street
had a heart that went beep beep
little tommy 'cross the way
used to play with her every day

then one summer, she had gone
tommy cried, but he moved on
then he saw her sitting there
at the new york science fair

in the end, we're robot people
though we cry, we're robot people
in the end, we're like johnny 5
we're alive, but not inside

don't you know we're robot people
though we die, we're robot people
take off the skin in which we hide
we're robot inside

gears and sprockets make us move
what else do i have to prove
to make you all just realize
the things you already know inside

battery backups power us
driven by hate and lust
pulley systems in our legs
our elbows are just fancy pegs

after all, we're robot people
though we feel, we're robot people
at the end, we're like johnny 5
we're alive, but not inside

they all know we're robot people
we're not real, we're robot people
take off the skin in which we hide
we're robot inside

no disassemble
no disassemble
we're alive, oh, we're alive
we're alive 'til we see the light

in the end, we're robot people
though we die, we're robot people
take off the skin in which we hide
Track Name: One of Us
all of us
we’re all the same

somedays you gotta
go ahead and just do it
you know ya really wanna
just say that you knew it

take a good look around you
you look like me
in turn i really doubt you
saw it coming, so ya see

all of us
we’re all the same

you’re one of us
Track Name: Computer Genocide
where do you hide
with nowhere to go?
what do you do
when you just don't know
it's coming for us
at a quickening speed
all those warnings we had
we didn't heed

the sky turned black
the sirens blared
we had no doubt
no one would be spared
we had a prayer
we shed a tear
it's not coming
it's already here

why didn't we listen
we didn't prepare
we just weren't ready
for the death in the air
it came so quickly
there was nothing to do
obliteration
through and through

a sense of urgency
clouded our minds
it's just too bad
we hadn't the time
here it comes
now hang your head
in a moment
we're all dead

when all was over
said and done
the human race
had not won
no victors in
this little game
too bad the hero
never came
Track Name: Here at the End
we are all the same
under our skins
take a look inside
we grew up together
we grew old together
but now it's time
to say goodbye

the earth is gone
filled with the dead
everyone but me
i will soon switch off
not much energy left
it's all worth it
this life was worth it

after i'm one with the earth
i will see you again
here at the end
we will be together again
