Here we go!

Not going back, they're on the track
You gonna go down there
Not going back, they're on the track
You gonna go down there
Not going back, they're on the track
You gonna go down there

Not going back now
Another falling on the rocks
And I'm not gonna wake up in the morning
With my head in the clouds
Feeling like a nobody
I'm down all the time
I'm never no high
Been a long, long way to fly
But having known my name
Be no pain
Nothing on fried (?) on a Saturday
Walk on the street
Put my feet on the ground
Shuffle shiny shoe
The sun in the eyes
Of the people in the room
That wanna find morning
No life for me
Yeah!
Yeah!
Are you coming on up?
Are you coming on up, now?
Are you coming on up?
Are you coming on up, now?

I am the robot man

Deep in the eye
There's an island of light
There's an island of light and the love
There you can go, you think nobody knows
But I'm guided by light from above
And he's looking down at you
And they're looking down at you
And they're looking down at you my friend
Yes they're looking down, they're looking down at you
They're looking down at you

Deep in the eye
There's an island of light
There's an island of light and the love
There you can go, you think nobody knows
But I'm guided by light from above
And he's looking down at you
And they're looking down at you
And they're looking down at you my friend
Yes they're looking down, they're looking down at you
They're looking down at you

    General CommentThis seems like someone recovering/trying to recover from addiction.
    "Not going back, they're on the track
    You gonna go down there"
    someone telling the person that everyone's shaping up, but you are probably going to go back /relapse

    "Not going back now
    Another falling on the rocks
    And I'm not gonna wake up in the morning
    With my head in the clouds"

    Not going back to his old life, another person or a friend has relapsed

    "The sun in the eyes
    Of the people in the room
    That wanna find morning"

    Like people in the rooms of recovery meetings who have that sparkle in their eyes because life if finally good for them. They want to recover.

    "Are you coming on up?
    Are you coming on up, now?"
    Them talking to him about whether he wants to get in on this recovery situation and the good life he could be living. On a new plane of existence.

    "There's an island of light and the love
    There you can go, you think nobody knows
    But I'm guided by light from above"

    There you can go, you think nobody knows - seems like some sort of addiction anonymous meeting

    guided by light from above - finding some sort of higher power, which is usually an essential part of 12 step programs.

    and then the first line - "1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12"
    12 steps?! yeah. thought so.
