Yes, You're A Robot

Postby thirdcat » Tue Oct 02, 2018 12:45 pm

yes you're a robot
but that doesn't mean you cannot feel
after all who knows what is real?
yes you're a robot

yes you're a robot but you're mine
and you've always loved me
yes you're a robot but I still and I will
promise to always love you

Berkeley Social Scene - Yes, You're a Robot

Verses:
We all pretend to be someone we’re not
With imposter syndrome, you can’t get caught
But with you, it's something greater
Not a human, an imitator

A rusty cage full of buggy code
A skeleton in gentlemen’s clothes
Hide in plain sight, a simple plan
An actor performing the role of a man

Chorus:
Yes, you’re a robot
With a beating heart
It would explain a lot
How well you play the part

Bridge:
Servos and bolts
Taking copious notes
A handful of volts
In oversized coats
Moving in fits and jolts
Speaking in quotes
Learns and revolts
Sinks and floats
Ken's Super Duper Band 'n Stuff - Berkeley Social Scene - Tiny Robots - Seamus Collective - Semolina Pilchards - Cutie Pies - Explino! - Bravo Bros. - 2 from 14 - and more!

i would just like to remind everyone that Ken eats kittens - blue lang

Yes, You're A Robot - by The John Benjamin Band
==============================

==VERSE==
Woke up today
Life was still OK
The whole future
Before me

Now I’m so low
Maybe there’s hope, I don’t know
Maybe I gave her
One chip too many

==CHORUS==
But look at the trees
Are they more real than you?
Even if, my dear
You are a robot?

Don’t be deceived
By all your hopes and dreams
Because yes, my dear
You are a robot

==BRIDGE==
Please don’t ask me
What if you don’t like the answer?
What if you don’t like me
What if you want to go?

Isn’t this good enough?
You never have to be alone
I wish you didn’t want
To know

==VERSE==
Woke up today
Everything’s gonna be OK
All of space and time
Before me

Shaved off all my hair
Traded in my wetware
And gave myself
One chip too many

==CHORUS==

==OUTRO==

Yes, You're a Robot
by Lichen Throat

It’s time to buy a new car.
I’ve had the same Saab 9-3 since ’08.
Garcia Infiniti,
Let’s drive your SUV.
Yes, you are a robot.
Yes, you’re a robot.
Be careful what you say;
Don’t let them know how much you’ll pay.

The QX50’s okay,
But worse than the Acura I already drove.
But they didn’t want me to go;
They said, “Hey, whoa,
Let’s go back into the showroom.”
Don’t have to listen to them,
So I went and sat inside my car.
Two guys stood outside
Giving me the evil eye,
So I picked up my phone and took their picture.
Yes, you are a robot.
Yes, you’re a robot.
Keep cool when it gets tense;
Don’t have to put up with this nonsense.

One guy knocked on my door
And told me to delete the picture.
I impolitely declined,
And then he lost his mind
Told me he was going to call the cops.
I told him to go ahead,
I’d happily stay ‘til the cops arrived.
Of course, he didn’t call.
He wasn’t happy at all,
And I finally just drove away.
Yes, you are a robot.
Yes, you’re a robot.
Stay calm when tempers flare.
Keep your voice low; don’t shout or swear.

Yes, You're a Robot

dedicated to my favorite robot Twonky

I've seen the schematics of the mind that you're using
I'm wondering if that's a thing you know
You were never meant to run into walls
you were super consistent when you're left on your own
is there a question that you forgot?
Yes! You are a robot!

Why have you seemed to be so inclined to keep refusing
you're never the one to let things go
I was hesitant to note all of your faults
you were uber malignant when you uttered the tone
is there a gesture that hits the spot?
Yes! You are a robot!

My!, have we gone through the motions enough to make conclusions?
we're worried about the undertow
it's magnificent you're making the call
I was rather indignant, I had a chill in my bones
is there a twist to this unbelievable plot?
Yes! You are a robot!

Yes, You're A Robot - Paco del Stinko

And I waited for you each day
My radar attuned and nothing to say
You made me feel so human in every way
Until I heard you glitch and it caused me dismay

Hey Marina, I like you a lot
But I gotta tell you that yes, you're a robot
You told me wot, and I never forgot
But I'm not so sure that you're as human as you once thought


And I heard you again one night
Surprise visit it opened my eyes
I doubted my humanity and questioned what's right
You clearly spoke in a binary code and it gave me a fright

Hey Marina, I like you a lot
But I gotta tell you that yes, you're a robot (oh no)
You told me wot, and I never forgot
But you're clearly not human as I once thought


When you left I looked in the mirror
And I had a talk with myself (what did you say)
I came to a conclusion, it couldn't have been clearer
And when I spoke it was only a squelch

And I told myself...
Yes you are a robot (And I don't mind)
But I still don't know why

You might think my brain is shot, but yes I'm a robot (Robot)
Bringin' the stink since 2006.

"Yes, You're A Robot"
by Lunkhead

Once there was a day I really loved to dance
I'd be on the floor every time I had the chance
Then there was a night I danced a little too hard
I slipped right out the window and got hit by a car, now...

Now I'm a robot, but I am a funky robot
Now I'm a robot, a funky robot
Now I'm a robot, but I am a funky robot
Now I'm a robot, a funky robot

I woke up in a lab, laying on a slab
Doctors all around, wondering what bad trip I've had
I opened my mouth to speak, out came a squeak
I tried to ask these doctors, "Man, what did you do to me?!"

Yes, you're a robot, but you are a funky robot
Yes, you're a robot, a funky robot
Yes, you're a robot, but you are a funky robot
Yes, you're a robot, a funky robot

I wandered through my town till I couldn't take no more
And then I saw a disco that I'd never seen before
Went in to the club, I couldn't believe my eyes
A hundred funky robots, man we danced right through the night, yeah

Yes, we are robots, but we are some funky robots
Yes, we are robots, some funky robots
Yes, we are robots, but we are some funky robots
Yes, we are robots, some funky robots
