lyrics

Cyberman and I be the most hated bot in the building.
Swap locks and I’ll drop through the ceiling.
Ha. You think these bots got feeling?
Don’t you know you’re dealing with automated gears
designed by decorated cybertronic engineers?
We’re 10th generation, let me make it clear.
We don’t need these people but these people they need us.
The situation always made them kind of nervous.
But when they’re out of luck then they just alert us.
Still we know that they hope to find a way to hurt us.

I don’t really like most humans.
I can see it in their eyes, they are always assuming.
They never take a deeper look or try to zoom in.
Only think about some catastrophe looming.
We didn’t crash in. We were invited.
You should’ve seen all these people get excited.
These days, you know that they deny it
but in the beginning, they were begging us to try it.
They needed energy, peace mediation.
We sent a probe, began negotiation.
We settled on a fee, they made up their minds.
And told everybody that they’re gonna be fine.

When we touched down, everybody screamed “Wheeee!”
Then they got mad and they asked us to leave.
They could see that we had superiority,
which really isn’t bad, it was just what they needed.

So when we got back then they all screamed “Wheeee!”
We weren’t gone long until they needed relief.
They could see that they shouldn’t get security for free.
We all slapped hands and we finally agreed.

It didn’t take long, see we acclimated quick.
Evaluated the situation and then went
straight to the heart and the cause of the conflict.
Hit the leadership, got security clearance.
It began. We sounded an alarm, people ran.
Locked down war zones with an iron hand.
We disarmed fighters by the millions,
then we marched down streets among cheering civilians.
And they didn’t even know about the blueprint.
We built a dome and the temperature soon went down.
People started running all around. Thousands of oxygen masks hit the ground.
The dust settled and these people were shocked.
They actually left front doors unlocked.
They couldn’t sleep without the gun shots,
but you know they were in love with the peace that we brought.
World leaders got pissed.
We got paid but they didn’t want it ending like this.
See they needed all the credit.
Started telling everybody they were definitely headed downhill.
We did what they asked but still didn’t trust us,
thought we would go in for the kill.
We just walked off when the propaganda flew.
You know who they call when they don’t know what to do.

When we touched down, everybody screamed “Wheeee!”
Then they got mad and they asked us to leave.
They could see that we had superiority,
which really isn’t bad, it was just what they needed.

So when we got back then they all screamed “Wheeee!”
We weren’t gone long until they needed relief.
They could see that they shouldn’t get security for free.
We all slapped hands and we finally agreed.

When we got started, everybody uttered “Whoa.”
This is what they do, why’d we ask them to go?
You know they’re kinda costly and sort of loud. So?
You get what you pay for, they put on quite a show.

When we touched down, everybody screamed “whee!”
Then they got mad and they asked us to leave.
Cuz they could see that we had superiority,
which really isn’t bad, it was just what they needed.

So when we got back then they all hollered “whee!”
We weren’t gone long till they needed relief.
They could see that they shouldn’t get security for free.
We all slapped hands and we finally agreed.

Cyberman and I be the most hated bot in the building.

about

Supercommuter Seattle, Washington

100% of Supercommuter’s music is written while creeping along State Road 520, in the peak moments of rush hour traffic in the Pacific Northwest. Stenobot composes beats on a classic Game Boy while nestled in the comfort of a King County Metro bus. Optimus Rhyme’s Wheelie Cyberman adds words while piloting a Prius toward an ever-present ergonomic chair. Tron Juan pieces it all together. ... more
