And our beaurocratic collective elite
(With our good in mind, of course)
Have turned all focus to the remaining nemesis
Spinning themselves from the axis of evil
Disease and terror, disease and terror
And this is America, impenetrable America
And I'm a Robot, I'm a robot!

    General CommentThis is the first Ima Robot song I ever heard and I fell in love with it right on the spot. xD

    It all boils down to FEAR.

    The first part seems to talk about how the government ("Our beaurocratic collective elite") have decided to turn on "the remaining nemisis"-- the last thing they have to fight. "Spinning themselves from the axis of evil" is like making themselves seem holy and good and better than all the terrorists and people they're battling. Then, they say how the President and whoever is always insisting that America is completely safe ("This is America, inpenetrable America!")-- but you should be afraid anyways. I don't think that the last line of that verse is actually the band name. I think it's just "I'm a robot!" like, "I'm being controlled by fear!" kind of thing.

    After that, they get into the media thing, hyping up their products. Buy this CD and suddenly, your whole life will be complete! Then the fear aspect comes in again ("Get it 'cause you're running out of time!"), screaming at the listener that they don't have any time to waste-- they better act now, while they still have a chance.

    The chorus is just more fear-mongering. xD Another referance to the American government there, I think, with their constant bomb threats and the like.

    The second/third verse (I'm never sure. xD) is basically the same thing. In the middle, he has a bit of a personal break-down from the "I'M A ROBOT!" thing at the end of the pre-... song... verse thing. "Touch me, please!" He needs to be loved... or maybe just hugged. (*Vollunteers.*)

    Then, the bridge part is just blatently media whore. People are dying, but it will all be okay if you buy our album, our product, our magazine.

    LOVE FOR THIS SONG K *Heart!*
