Somewhere to hide to keep me alive.

“You’re wondering who I am – machine or mannequin
With parts made in Japan, I am the modern man

I’ve got a secret I’ve been hiding under my skin
My heart is human, my blood is boiling, my brain I.B.M.
So if you see me acting strangely, don’t be surprised
I’m just a man who needed someone, and somewhere to hide
To keep me alive – just keep me alive
Somewhere to hide to keep me alive

I’m not a robot without emotions – I’m not what you see
I’ve come to help you with your problems, so we can be free
I’m not a hero, I’m not a saviour, forget what you know
I’m just a man whose circumstances went beyond his control
Beyond my control – we all need control
I need control – we all need control

I am the modern man, who hides behind a mask
So no one else can see my true identity

Thank you very much, Mr. Roboto
For doing the jobs that nobody wants to
And thank you very much, Mr. Roboto
For helping me escape just when i needed to
Thank you-thank you, thank you
I want to thank you, please, thank you

The problem’s plain to see – too much technology
Machines to save our lives. machines dehumanize.

The time has come at last
To throw away this mask
Now everyone can see
My true identity…”

Well. They don’t write the music like that anymore these days. I think.
Too bad.
