It is 1999
The human race has to face it
They are confronted with the truth
It's secret -- mysterious

A surgeon said it in the news
The human race is dying
But the result is no disease
Searching for you

Metal heart -- metal heart
They found it everywhere
Metal heart -- metal heart
Lifeless piece of steel

The scaring fact was even told
Total confusion
They found the same nightmare
Heartbeats -- timebombs

Metal heart -- metal heart
Unplugged they're dying
Metal heart -- metal heart
Unplugged they die

Metal heart -- metal heart
They found it everywhere
Metal heart -- metal heart
Lifeless piece of steel

Metal heart -- metal heart -- metal heart
Unplugged they're dying
Metal heart -- metal heart

    Song FactWolf commented in a 2005 interview that:

    "Yeah. It was really that one day the robots will rule the world and actually that was almost like a prophecy that, in a weird way, came true because it says, "in 1999, the human race is dying". I think right around that time, the first person with a metal heart actually walked around. I mean, if you think about it, didn't they just come out with artificial hearts around that time?

    So that was almost weird (laughs). Of course, it was not really meant in a literal way; it was more dealing with the whole computerization of the world and how it's getting more and more run by robots and machines; and well, that part is certainly coming true."
