Robots Never Sleep

1.
For My Life 03:30
I saw something that gave me the creeps Your clipboard freaks me out Sign on the line why should I sign? When it all gets out of hand I am aware of free speech Its limitations speak to me Your news not fake news But either is my day My life For my life For paisley and houndstooth I breathe I see I am I live Hoping for the best why not For my life For your life
2.
Whenever I walk into the forest of time I end up getting lost right away And then I go out onto the sand It's blowing by and I wonder where I am I wake up to find I forgot the day Here in the forest it won't matter anyway As I'm walking by it draws me in Mere seconds later I am lost again Walking in a circle For no one knows how long In the forest of time no one sees the sun But no one wants to run Whenever I walk into the forest of time I end up getting lost and here I stay
3.
I wonder what it was I didn't learn ahead of time Today would be nothing but a bad state of mind I had to wonder what it was I would do Seems like nothing is getting through How can I sympathize With so many lies? No warning Another reason to doubt No warning Another reason to doubt
4.
I want a trip to the moon Which one would I choose? You know Jupiter has moons I can see them in my telescope I imagine in my head I want to join the lottery To win a trip to the moon I want a trip to the moon It's never too soon I want a trip to the moon I want to go to the moon Too much gravity has got me down I want a trip to the moon
5.
Overlords 01:35
They're looking down at us We're looking up at them We don't know what's going on Or when it will start The overlords are coming down They are here It's already begun I can feel the doom affecting everyone Our ruin is among us Hope will not be found The overlords are fitting in You can see the evil grin The overlords are here
6.
When I am down I know you are on my side It brings me back to know Why I'm alive At the surface I am on my knees I'm beginning to think I need to rise I find myself running on a surface of nothing When I was up It was you that brought me luck But I don't think the streak is gone I find myself running on a surface of nothing I've been all around Kicked a bunch of ground I am here to say there's more to do So that I will do So that I will do So that I will do So that I will do When I am down I know you are on my side It brings me back to know Why I'm alive I find myself running on a surface of nothing
7.
Seems so far away To get back above the ground And it's hard to imagine Being so far down A crack above Saving someone you love Seems so far away When you're down Seems so far away To get back Seems so far away Flying high again A crack above Taking away someone you love No Seems so far away Seems so far away
8.
They keep on talking About all the things we don't need With plans to take them all away They say we can live without them But we don't have to Our voices will be heard either way And they think that it's alright The wrong idea is that we won't fight No lying down on the job that never end This is the message we send All the things we work for Live a decent live that's fine Robbing from the blind so they can see And live the dream We know it's a nightmare coming true And they think that it's alright The mistake made is there be a fight And there will
9.
I am being quiet 'cuz I'm so freaked out About what's coming up It's a science fiction nightmare And I'm losing out again Two heads sticking out at once When I look in the mirror Am I real am I gone have I moved on but to where It's a science fiction nightmare Let it stop Wake me up Seen too much Read too many books With crazy images or not We never know if what's real is real what if it's not It's a science fiction nightmare And I'm not ready for bed It's a science fiction Have I lost my head? Let me out Wake me up Make it stop Let me go Go away Let me go Go away Wake me up Let it go Make it stop Go away Make it stop
10.
Time goes by So slowly when I'm not feeling right This is not something I would want And not what I would plan And time goes by So quickly when I am having fun Ever changing time Ever changing time
11.
Snaking through the laundry list Of incidental breakthroughs And I find myself in the break room The door is a jar But we know it is not It's open that's enough for me Incidental breakthrough again Incidental breakthrough again
12.
Is It Real? 02:30
I look out the window at the train stop like always It seems different And I had to think it was all fake I didn't pay my admission to the theme park today It's so perfect but too strange to be real Is it real? Who changed our world This one can't be real I'm not getting out to find out That the grass has been replaced With the same from outer space Is it real? Is it real?
13.
Wouldn't it be nice If my time and your time were one We could do anything at all It's so easy if my time was your time was your time as well We would find no need to say goodbye No need to say goodbye Wouldn't it be nice If we had time for everything Widening our time There would be more we want to do Would find no need to say goodbye No need to say goodbye
14.
Robots never sleep And I wish they would Robots never sleep They're looking over us They want to know When we change our ways They do the research when we cannot fight Standing around With nothing to do Robots never sleep Robots never sleep They might as well have a good look at us Robots never sleep And I wish they would
15.
I'm thinking about times That only I would know I try to take my mind Only where it wants to go In control Impossible Honestly I know what I can't control I remember the days Getting lost around town Fumbling around I found the keys almost too late In control Impossible Honestly I know what I can't control
16.
If you tell me I won't figure it out Then you're telling me I must figure it out And I will let you know if I care to At the time that I am through If you tell me I might I will say that I can't And you know that I will either way I'm not gonna tell you That I'm thick in the head And I won't give now that I'm sick in the head I won't drive myself insane to prove that it's true It's all part of the plan understand And I'm standing around I was trying I was trying to cut through I was trying to talk to myself And then I realized that I can't hear myself I went back to the source And I found a short had happened in my mind Now I'm trying to get away From what it is you know I cannot say Searching for the high ground But the high ground's in the way It doesn't matter if it's day or night Instinct kicks in fight or flight I would fly if I could and I would To take the air and make it mine All these words don't make it mine All these words don't make it mine
17.
Looking far looking wide A clue flew by Faking myself out How would I know? This is the time Try to see what's left in mind But a light goes off And in the dark I fall Faking myself out How would I know? I've said that before I don't need to wonder where my soul is I hope it's not hard to find Faking myself out How would I know? You won't see me at all There's no one around Faking myself out How would I know?
18.
Have you ever had I know I've had one of those days One of those I know I lived through I survived One of those nights Wasn't right Took too long I took too long I took too long to get it right Who is that sitting over there I remember but not quite Is it me? Searching on the salt flats Trying to get the last place back Back to where it belongs Too many questions I'm moving on Too many questions To answer all at once
19.
Weird thoughts coming in From where I don't know I've been thinking but my mind isn't in it I've been listening but my ears can't hear I've been living have I I've been seeing but it's not clear at all How would I know? Would I know? What there is would I know? What I'm supposed to see Would I know? Would I know? How would I know? Would I know? What there is that I'm supposed to see after all
