Lyrics

I stay in my room, All alone in the gloom, What need I of light? Machines they can see in the night, And I feel no pain Metal heart and a metal brain, But something is wrong 'cause I still feel that signal coming in so I stand at your door, I guess I'll wait a moment more Your hall light comes on And now my turn to fire upon But I wheel away Defer my plight, for another day To dream of your face But a video screen takes its place Hey, oh it's true I'm a helpless automaton, Make an ultimatum to you Hey, it's true Machinery in my pocket, I've even got a docket from you I went to the man, I told him a robot is what I am, But he just smiled, said I was a fractious child "Distrusted not Rusted" That's why I feel so disgusted But I know he's wrong, 'cause I haven't felt this way for very long Hey, it's true, I'm a helpless automaton, make an ultimatum to you Hey, it's true Machinery in my pocket, I've even got a docket from you I'm a helpless automaton, make an ultimatum to you Hey, it's true Machinery in my pocket, I've even got a docket from you It's true I'm a helpless automaton, make an ultimatum to you Hey, it's true Machinery in my pocket, I've even got a docket from you From you From you
