In our days we've mourned insignias
The passing glance unstamped
We’ve rendered ourselves powerless, unfortunate
The useless mend the fixed
And on every hour it detonates
My courage goes unlooked
The ride home through perilous
The land it goes, I will . . .

You’ve been a bad boy
You broke all the rules
You’ve been a bad boy
You’ll get yours paid in full

I, Robot will never die
My Robot will never die
You look down, but far from out
And the paper reads, "You lose"
I, Robot will never kill

A favor captain, a word with you
My systems gone and lost it's mind
My right eye has done shed a tear
My gun I’ve left behind
Will systems take me home and dissemble me?
Will I be terminated with you near?
Alongside the others that I hold so close
If I'm to be killed, then when? By whom?

You’ve been a bad boy
You broke all the rules
You’ve been a bad boy
You’ll get yours paid in full

I, Robot will never die
My Robot will never die
You look down, but far from out
And the paper reads, "You lose"
I, Robot will never die

    General CommentMaybe I'll seem just a bit odd saying this...but has anyone else noticed that C&C always incorporate some kind of military persona? Like Captian, sergenat ect. ect.?

    General Commentdoes anyone know how to spell?
    it would be so nice if people knew proper spelling before they post lyrics.
    i'm not directly dissing this one.. just all of them in general.
    dictionaries are your friends...
