Track Name: Robots Do Not Rock
Robots Do Not Rock
life was good.
and i felt cool.
the forcefield that i'd built myself was functioning on full.
i had my friends
tucked safely away,
where my outstretched arms could reach them,
if i needed them someday.
but what the hell is happening to me?
i'm starting to regain my sense of empathy.
now i have feelings...
...these horrible feelings.
and i'd be better off to be machine,
but everyone knows that
robots do not rock.
life was good
when i was numb;
then a breaker broke,
a switch got flicked,
now look what i've become.
Track Name: the Peepin' Song
the Peepin' Song

i look at girls
who don't look at me
and that's how i get
to see what i see
it's an amazing arrangement;
it's such an intimate estrangement
i look in her window
at every chance
i've got all my lights out
i'm watching her dance
and she dances like a little girl;
so innocent in privacy
and she's the pivot of her little world
because she doesn't know she's dancing for me!
am i a sicko?
or am i just hetero?
i wonder what you'd say
sometimes i don't know
cuz I look at girls
who don't look at me
and that is how I get away
with seeing what I see
she'll never know that i observe her;
i'm such a clever little pervert.
Track Name: the Fear
Every day I got the Fear
in the back of my head,
afraid that one of these days
I'm gonna wake up dead.
and who's wrong and he's right?
I couldn't tell you for sure
I guess it all depends
on how you're keeping score
but the only one thing
I can tell you for sure
is that I don't want to die
in the third world war.

Every day I got the Fear
in the back of my head,
afraid that one of these days
I'm gonna wake up dead.
And will the world be any better
when it's all said and done?
I guess it always depends
On who you know
and where you're from.
And the only one thing
I can tell you for sure
Is that I don't want to die
In a nuclear war.
