lyrics

Now, every night I plug into the system and
Charge up a batch of that battery wisdom.
I harness the power of passion and pitches in
Pulses and patterns and patches and pistons.
Pack it, code it, and feed it to disk.
Every component that makes up the list.
All of the processes. All of the fortresses. All of the
Factories, soldiers and offices.

Whoo! These models, they gotta be fixed
To keep them from going on the fritz.
I’ll get up and tweak at the mix and
They get a treat, and learn a new trick.

I got the clearance. I got the juice.
I got a purpose and they got a use.
They are the tech tree, I am the root
Behind the directory, up in the booth.
I make an excellent human to boot.
I’m irreplaceable down to the tooth.
I’m at the wheel and I’m filling the groove.
To keep the machinery moving this smooth.
Cause every automaton hum at a different
Rumble. A dissonant frequency jumble.
I balance them equally. Everything fits.
I polish the sequencing down to the bit.
Down to the byte. Down to a bot.
I’m in control of the rhythm it got.
I wipe and format and write all the shots.
Every last line of the code to a naught.

Whoo! These models, they gotta be fixed
To keep them from going on the fritz.
I’ll get up and tweak at the mix and
They get a treat, and learn a new trick.

Take, for example, a d0t.
The randomest sample we got.
The tiniest tool in the box.
Set it to signal, get it to dock.
Prep it, command it. Ready the slot.
Batch it, attach it, and ratchet the lock.
Exit the bay when we’ve fitted the op.
Look at it, snug as a cog in a clock.
Back at display, there’s a ruling to make.
An assortment of options that I got to weigh
That only go active when I go OK. The
Roto-mechanics all do what I say.
Cause only a Human got pulse in the veins.
Only a Human can format and change and
Mod at the moment the Pulse is engaged.
Everything’s loaded. Let’s take it away!

These models they gotta be fixed....
