The Lyrics

To get this parody, you'll have to be familiar with the Cybermen from TV's Dr Who show. Otherwise it won't make a heck of a lot of sense!
First we were entombed
we were petrified
Kept thinking no spaceships would land
we'd never be revived
But then we'd spent so many years
augmenting cybernetically
we grew strong
we made sure our lives were long
and so you're back
from outer space
We just defrosted here to see you
With yet another different face
We should have killed you on the wheel
We should have shot you on the moon
If we had known for just one second
you'd be back so bloody soon

Go on now go close down the hatch
just turn around now
'cause you're not welcome on our patch
weren't you the one we fought on Planet 14?
you think we're humbled?
you thought the last of us you'd seen?
Oh no, not we
WE WILL SURVIVE
as long we know how to freeze
We know we'll be revived
We've got all your world to hurt
All these people to convert
and we'll survive
WE WILL SURVIVE(hey hey)

It took all the strength I had
not to fall apart
When Toberman threw me against that computer chart
and I spent oh so many nights
melting on that door
I used to cry
Now my emotions have all died!
and you see me
been redesigned
I'm not lumbering silver giant
with a flashing orange mind
and so you felt like dropping in
to stop us getting some time travel
now I'll make you wish that you'd
never touched down on our gravel!

Go on now go close down the hatch
just turn around now
'cause you're not welcome on our patch
weren't you the one we fought on Planet 14?
you think we're humbled?
you thought the last of us you'd seen?
Oh no, not we
WE WILL SURVIVE
as long we know how to freeze
We know we'll be revived
We've got all your world to hurt
All these people to convert
and we'll survive
WE WILL SURVIVE(hey hey)
