A hand fumbles in the dark
It finds its destination
The power switch is flick on
The power of a robot nation
Everyday the same routine
On at 8, off at 5
Repeated tasks reward unseen

Is this what its like to be alive?

Assembly men work assembly lines
While money men laugh and play
Gears and arms work in time
This has always been the way
But something doesnít feel quite right
And though I may be lobotomized
Strange electric impulses

Tell me weíre all roboticized
Is this what its like to be alive?

I, robot (I feel out of place)
I, robot (Controller of my fate)
I, robot (No longer can I wait)
I am not a robot

I pull the wires out of my head
Its refreshing to think clear
No more remnants of a cloudy mind
No more thoughts of slavery and fear
The domino effect begins with one
Iím already at the starting line
The time has come for liberty

Iíll show you what its like to be alive
Cause this isnít what its like to be alive
Is this what its like to be alive?
This isnít what its like to be alive

I, robot (theres more to life than this)
I, robot (I think Iíll take the risk)
I, robot (theyíll try to shut me down)
But I am not a robot
I am not a robot (donít let them do the same to you)
I am not a robot (break free and do what you need to)
I am not a robot (free yourself from tyranny)
I am not a robot (our robot nation at last is free)
