no longer, want to feel I want, want to be real Not a man, not a machine But something else, in between Robitka The allure of perfection The ability to defy detection State-of-the-art, something never seen something more than a man or a machine Robotika technology seduces, subliminal appeal sleek and functional, flesh and steel coalescing into Robotika….. The fusion of mind, and machine Form and function, never seen coalescing into Robotika…. Lost in time, out of sync A foreign world, on the brink A new beginning, a start of the end No past or future, nothing to defend

Remember when you were young? The world was going to be yours? Always on the front lines, of the cultural wars. The music and the scene, were fresh and new How nothing existed, before or after you? Now a few years distance, from your former self. While you weren't looking they put you on the shelf. Change and evolution, slowly slipped away. Now you're left wondering why things don't seem to stay. Looking back to the past and the time just slips away, While you weren't looking the future came today. Music became anesthesia, now you practice amnesia A quiet life of sedation, with aural medication Stop the world hide your head, become one of the walking dead When you admit defeat, that's when you're obsolete You have nostalgia for a past that didn't exist With the threat of coming change you try to resist Holding on to your youth, sometimes obscures the truth Like it or not, the future came today.

I do the Robot, I I, I do the Robot
 Robotika is taking over me
(I do the Robot, I, I, I do the Robot)
Living in virtual reality
(I do the Robot, I, I, I do the Robot)
Kinetic rhythms hold me in their sway
(I do the Robot, I, I, I do the Robot)
Lost in rhythm of the dance floor, it takes me away
(I do the Robot, I, I, I do the Robot) In sync with the beat, of the machine (I do the Robot, I, I, I do the Robot) Underground, no longer seen (I do the Robot, I, I, I do the Robot) The beat is dropped, a banner unfurled I choose to live in an analogue world In sync with the beat, of the machine 
Dance, dance, dance, dance the night away (I do the Robot, I, I, I do the Robot) To the edge of the world as the last notes decay The manifesto of the beat, it’s inside of me (I do the Robot, I, I, I do the Robot) The sound all around is ecstasy (I do the Robot, I, I, I do the Robot) Electro pop takes me straight to the top I never ever ever want it to stop Robotika has taken over me (I do the Robot, I, I, I do the Robot) Dance, dance, dance, dance the night away (I do the Robot, I, I, I do the Robot) To the edge of the world as the last notes decay

Out of the lab, into production, the assembly line The plan already is in place, engineering design Where to go, what to do, what you know, who you knew How to feel, how to live, It's already planned… Industry... Do as you're told, you're a cog, in a bigger machine Stare straight ahead, question nothing, keep your eye on the screen The agenda is already set, minimum requirements already met Follow the plan and everything will turn out fine... Conformity, an essential component, always comply Strict adherence to the rules, never ask why Chorus: Say goodbye to a past That didn't exist Say hello to your future Don't try to resist Industry... Forward motion, moving to plan Detected by a virus scan Self awareness has no place, in the machine The agenda is already set, minimum requirements already met Follow orders and everything will turn out fine... Conformity, an essential component, always comply Strict adherence to the rules, never ask why Chorus: Say goodbye to a past That didn't exist Say hello to your future Don't try to resist Industry...

Almost imperceptible, it hangs in the air The atmosphere shifts under the weight of their stare Acid smiles, mixed with stolen glances Their moment comes with stolen changes Sometimes a single shooter, or they work in teams Their goal to bring you down, and hollow out your dreams Sometimes it comes, with a big explosion More often not, it's slow erosion Assassins everywhere Assassins they don't care No matter what you say They're here to kill your day You're on the radar, you're in their view Locking on the target, they're going to see it through For them to be on top, they have to drag you down For them to stay afloat they have to see you drown Assassins everywhere Assassins they don't care No matter what you say They're here to kill your day

I want to be, medicated I want to be, medicated I want to be, medicated I want to be, medicated...

Every night, I surrender, to a world of dreams Memories, sounds and colors, nothing's what it seems In a room from another life, a faded affair I hear the music on a radio, that isn't there A different place, another era, memories to reclaim A time, vaguely familiar, new and yet the same Colors faded like an old photograph, echoes of another day Like a slow-motion movie, waiting to replay Waves of unconsciousness, wash over me Leading to an altered state reality Moving forward, touching time Fragments of a dream, moments sublime Every night I surrender, to a world of dreams...

Here I am, just a lonely robot In a world where I don't belong Here I am, a lonely robot I only find solace in a sad, sad song Nights alone, listening to records Looking for some kind of clues Transmissions from another dimension Twenty-third century blues Here I am, just a lonely robot Of this world, I don't want to be here Here I am, a lonely robot I only want to disappear I had no voice, I had no ears, until I found the machine Nobody listened, they don't know what I mean A secret language that no one else spoke Always viewed as some kind of joke I find myself rewinding the tape Of how I got here, and how to escape I don't fit in, I shouldn't be here Sometimes I just want, to disappear Here I am, just a lonely robot In a world where I don't belong Here I am, a lonely robot I only find solace in a sad, sad song Never feeling right, never fitting in I never had the timing of where to begin The world, so cold and abusive My sense of self, so elusive Evenings alone listening to records Looking for some type of clues Transmissions from another dimension Twenty-third century blues I want to escape into the night It's only with the music that I feel alright

Tonight, I want to set myself free To be someone else, I don't want to be me Escape. I need to get away If only for a minute, or an hour, or a day A life, filled with regret Too many things I want to forget The sound, from another day Takes me to another place where I want to stay... Tonight. Tonight. I want to get lost in the nightlife Tonight. Tonight. I want to set myself free Tonight. Tonight. I'm lost in a sea of faces Tonight, it feels, like destiny A world, lost in the sound A space, once lost, now found Regrets, seem like a cliche The past. It slowly melts away... Tonight. Tonight. I want to get lost in the nightlife Tonight. Tonight. I want to set myself free Tonight. Tonight. I'm lost in a sea of faces Tonight, it feels, like destiny Lost in the nightlife

Take my hand, let's go out tonight Unplug and runaway The lights of the city are calling To come out and play Metro music plays in the air People dancing without a care Let's leave it all behind In the city tonight... Chorus: Let's leave it all behind In the city tonight... Take my hand, don't look back It will be alright ... New places, new faces The city reaching up for the sky Going out to explore Gravity we're gonna defy the beat, the rhythm complete You can feel it in the air Tonight it feels brand new Living life without a care Chorus: Let's leave it all behind In the city tonight... Take my hand, don't look back It will be alright ... People dancing the night away Living just for today Leaving it all behind In the city tonight... New places, new faces The city reaching up for the sky Going out to explore Gravity we're gonna defy Chorus: Let's leave it all behind In the city tonight... Take my hand, don't look back It will be alright ...

Drop the beat, move your feet The time has come to get away Forgot to smile, for a little while But now we have a special day Feel the pulse out on the street? Feel the rhythm, feel the heat. Everybody wants to celebrate It's time to dance again... Chorus: The world in shades of gray Stop the clock let's get away Let the night begin We need to dance again The time is now, the night is young Our time has only begun Everybody wants to celebrate And dance the night away... Chorus: The world in shades of gray Stop the clock let's get away Let the night begin We need to dance again Outro: We need to dance We need to dance We need to dance again

A day unlike any day, comes into view For a moment, a perfect day, just for you The grass is green, the sun is bright For a time the world feels right Once a year, a perfect day for you The days may come, the days may go For today, time stands still Out of time one perfect day Promises to fulfill The time seems to glide while the outside world is cast aside A perfect day is waiting for you The days may come, the days may go For today, time stands still Out of time one perfect day Promises to fulfill

Memories drift, like snowflakes in the air To a place in time, no longer there The days are shorter, the nights alive with lights Memories of walks, on winter evening nights Lights they glimmer, born again anew Looking at the past, from another view Backwards glances of how things used to be Images and sound, dreams and memory It's Christmas The rain is falling, the time it slips away The music playing, from another day The fire crackles warming up the room The lights sparkle, pushing back the gloom It's Christmas
