lyrics

We got a system
A system we trust.
To service the system
So nothing’ll rust.
As a part of a system
A system that thrives
We’re keeping the system alive!

Morning, drivers! Morning, servers!
Morning, typers! Morning, workers!
Morning, automatic roto-plastic modem guts and roller gadgets.
Grab your motor acid mugs and hit the road!
Morning, forklift! Morning, network key!
Morning, packetized data streaming circuitry!
Morning auto-pilot cranes, auto-pilot planes, all the lanes are open,
Take a swig of oil and slide into the frame!

Morning, drones. Morning, satellites.
Morning, main screen. Morning, power lines.
The live feed’s online. We got image. We got signal.
We got levels on a zillion channels.
Morning, passcode. Morning, firewall.
Morning, mother board, inner core, and outer sprawl.
The skys are clear, the time for work is near,
and of course, all of the trains run right on schedule.

Morning, die cast. Morning, laser drills.
Morning, sand blaster. Morning, cable wheels.
Morning, overseer solder gear, water pressure’s up to here
Loading bays are open. Clear, on location. Go!
Morning, data mines. Morning, pulse code
Morning, saw, square, sine wave align modes.
By design, we combine as a unit and we’re strong.
Move along. Nothing ever goes wrong, cause…

We got a system
A system we trust.
To service the system
So nothing’ll rust.
As a part of a system
A system that thrives
We’re keeping the system alive!
Yes, today’s agenda is just yesterday’s agenda.
We’ve just kept the same agenda. We don’t have to change agenda.
When the routines run this smooth, you gotta stick with the program.
Get into your process. Process any offset.
Shake off any cobwebs. There’s not many cobwebs.
When all of the networks follow the road map.

And there’s no place quite like your place.
There’s no place quite like your place.
There’s no place quite like your place. You fit in.

We update protocols for every model over all.
A daily overhaul to wipe the drives and reinstall.
So nothing ever clutters up the works.
The system only works If the system comes first.
Good evening, Olive, let's begin!
