The Lyrics

I liked Matthias' sci-fi parody yesterday and decided to do one with a twist.
I made it through the Third World War
The alien invasion too
The environmental upheavals
Trapped in some bio goo

Motor beat, fuel cell deplete
Woke up mad, no Century 22
Escaped the tomb of steel
The surroundings are surreal
More odd than new

Like a hermit
Emerging in 2099
Like a hermit
Who was put in stasis
In 2025

There are stains of blood, boy
The wreckage of a lab
Thought I'd wake up new & improved
But I feel just as bad

Went the time, genocide
All went wrong, and now it's really cold
What's this world about?
Yeah, I have my doubts
And looks like my Android was sold!



Sooo, sooo, sooo... lonely

Sick inside, nearly blind
Hope my eyesight will return in time
My arm's got a synthaflesh feel
OMG! Am I real?
Chip identify... Oops, it's fried!


Like a hermit, ooh, ooh
Like a hermit
This module's cramped inside
New discovery, hear a beep-beep, and it's sensory

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Ooh, maybe
Someone will get me on my feet
I stagger, find a line

Of prisoners, on Mars,
damn German swine!!!
I'm an arboter*!!!
Nein, Nein!!!!!!!!!!!

Malfunction! Malfunction! Malfunction!
* Arbeiterroboter (worker robot)

poor thing

In case anyone has trouble understanding, the machine is an Allied Combat Android that was hit and captured by German forces in a post-apocalyptic world and transferred to the occupied Mars Colonial Outpost. Repaired and put into hibernation for future usage, it awakens 74 years later in confusion. The comparison is to a hermit emerging from isolation into the world of the unknown.
