lyrics

Robots walk like this but
humans walk like this and
robots need more energy but they cover greater distance.
Humans fight like this and
robots fight like this but
the human brain is complicated, difficult to decipher.

Put on your helmets, put on your vests.
Strap on gas masks, calibrated jets.
Put on your decals, decorated chest.
Stow away those safety nets.
Face these threats with a Phase 3 field.
People bounce off invisible shield.
Ha ha ha ha. It’s funny.
Oooh – Look at all these bipeds running.
Galloping masses gathering numbers.
We wonder where their president slumbers.
Slide in then we grab the code.
Generate decoy, suitably old.
Snap back. Interrogate original.
Gather info, it’s so critical.
Hit go, but remember the vest.
Show these people why they need a lot of rest.

Robots walk like this but
humans walk like this and
robots need more energy but they cover greater distance.
Humans fight like this and
robots fight like this but
the human brain is complicated, difficult to decipher.

Humans sleep like this but
robots never sleep,
and we never wonder whether or not we’ll see victory.
Because we think, we move, we act.
We do not hesitate, we attack.
We get hit, regenerate, we fix it.
No feeling, no talking back.

AC/DC, we don’t care.
All together, put your cords in the air.
Strip that wire, let it be naked.
Watch electricians start shaking.
Can you take it? Do you want to fall in
line? Move quick, no crawling.
Time--an ally, no stalling.
More hydraulics means more hauling.
And we got these vests to move.
Heat treated, fully bullet-proof.
See you’ll need it here in a few,
POWs like testing you.
The best of the bots just walk through city
blocks, incognito like itty bitty pigeons,
itty bitty rats. Itty bitty Chihuahuas in designer bags.
How you like that? Microrobots in your body setting up camp.
We love it, we’re not moving.
Dig in, it’s a big improvement.

Robots walk like this but
humans walk like this and
robots need more energy but they cover greater distance.
Humans fight like this and
robots fight like this but
the human brain is complicated, difficult to decipher.

Humans sleep like this but
robots never sleep,
and we never wonder whether or not we’ll see victory.
Because we think, we move, we act.
We do not hesitate, we attack.
We get hit, regenerate, we fix it.
No feeling, no talking back.

Robots walk like this but
humans walk like this and
robots need more energy but they cover greater distance.
Humans fight like this and
robots fight like this but
the human brain is complicated, difficult to decipher.

Humans sleep like this but
robots never sleep,
and we never wonder whether or not we’ll see victory.
Because we think, we move, we act.
We do not hesitate, we attack.
We get hit, regenerate, we fix it.
No feeling, no talking back.
We think, we move, we act.
We do not hesitate, we attack.
We get hit, regenerate, we fix it.
No feeling, no talking back.

It’s the way we lean, it’s the way we skew.
It’s the way we clean our CPU.
It’s the way we glean information, put it into place and
know just what to do. Now.
Do you want that data by the pound?
Let us in then we’ll spread around,
hit that medulla, really go town.
Cool, you’re walking like a robot now.

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
