Track Name: Robot Haikus Of Despair And Self Loathing
She didn't know that I existed
I hoped that would change
When we got our robot bodies
But things stayed the same

I lost the girl of my dreams
I should've known not to trust
Technology

<Cold and hard as steel
Did we forget how to feel
While looking our best?

Gems and precious ores
It matters to stay adorned
and how much is spent

In the future we've got everything
(that we want, that we need)
except for a cure for vanity>


This is a message from long after when you've died
Yours is the time I will change.
Here's the solution for how to end humankind
And save me from all this pain.

Oh my Honda, what have I done?
Oh my GM, what have I done?
I'm just a brain, I'm just a scientist's son.
Oh my God, what have I done?


<Chorus>

Down with the same ideologies . Break the world to break the mold.
What you want, not what you ought to be. This is how we break the code.
Does not compute, does not compute.
Track Name: Flagellation
I'm still crazy, you're the queen!
Temper, torture, I concede.
I'm still crazy, can't you see
I don't mean what I should mean.

Hold it where I can't reach, it's so golden in your light!
Reel back and then beat me, 'cause it's the only way I like.
Call me, call me nothing, and I'll willingly agree.
Call me, call me something, and I'll tell you that's not me.
All night, all the barbwire keeps getting tangled 'round my neck
But it's all right 'cause I'm hardwired to endure the disrespect.

I've got a right to let you do what you want to do.
I've got a right to let you use what you want to use.
I've got a right to let your needs overpower mine.
I've got a right to let what's right slip out of my mind.

<chorus>

Don't let the lady wait long without making a statement
about how superior she is (x2)


<chorus>

Hold it where I can't see, don't release without a fight.
Cool it and then freeze me, it's not hot without your ice.
Call me, call me nothing, and I'll willingly agree.
Call me, call me something and I'll tell you that's not me.
All night, all the crossfire makes me dance around your room
But it's okay, 'cause I'm hardwired to be only controlled by you.

I've got a right to let you do what you want to do.
I've got a right to let you use what you want to use.
I've got a right to let your needs overpower mine.
I've got a right to let what's right slip out of my mind.

I'm still crazy!
Track Name: Zombie Cheer Camp
Watch how they walk, with bags on their arms
and vacuous smiles that are sticky with charm.
Mouths won't stop moving, undoing their smarts
Pets pressed to chests protecting their hearts.
Between the lobes, and beneath the robes,
there's nobody home and nothing worth noting
Public relations' dangerous creations
need more tv stations with popular voting
All around the outdoor malls they flit upon their spikes
chattering their siren songs:
We're, like, so what you should be like.

Open your mouth, spill out the dirt
Infect the crowds with ultra worth
Brain-dead adulation has stupefied a nation.


See how they talk, with cigarettes or gum
their maws gobbling sushi like sharks eating chum.
Mouths so disapproving, undoing their kin
who don't have straight teeth or unblemished skin
Upon a throne with high-polish chrome
Fast as can go from soiree to soiree
Scantily clad, it's all thanks to dad
and his affiliation with the winning party
All along the outdoor malls they flit upon their spikes
Chattering their siren songs:
We're, like, so what you should be like.

Where do we go from here?
I can't help but wonder.
~

Open your mouth, spill out the dirt
Infect the crowds with ultra worth
Brain-dead adulation has stupefied a nation
Open your eyes to cry the tears
and demonize all of your peers
Petty dedication has spawned these tribulations
Open your ears, soak up the buzz
drown what you hear with booze and drugs
candy medication (cheap lobotomization)
Open your thighs, let in the press
They'll publicize how well you dress
This is how they raised you and this is how they'll raze you


Who's going to fight? Who'll take down the drones?
who will let the idiots learn on their own?
Mouths so patronizing are driving us down
So think before speaking or shut your damn mouth
We can do better than this
We can do better than this
We must do better than this
Or we'll expire
