I called the teacher cause I wanted to confess it now
Can I make the time for me to come and get it blessed somehow
She spoke to me in such a simple and decisive tone
Her sweet admission left me feeling in position from

I don't take these things so personal
Anymore, anymore
I don't think it's irreversible
Anymore

Somebody hooted and they hollered can I buy a vowel
Don't let her catch you in the act of throwing in the towel
And when it's not as it appears to be, the flagrant foul
Can I put my fingers in your mouth before you start to growl

I don't think that it's so terrible
Anymore, anymore
I don't think that it's unbearable
Anymore

Tell me now, I know that it just won't stop
You will find your flow when you go robot
I want to thank you and spank you upon your silver skin
Robots don't care where I've been
You've got to choose it to use it, so let me plug it in
Robots are my next of kin

Sometimes I feel like I'm a sentimental trooper
She cried so hard, you know she looked like Alice Cooper

I don't think that it's so personal
Anymore, anymore
I don't think it's irreversible
Anymore

Tell me know, I know that it just won't stop
You will find your flow when you go robot

I want to thank you and spank you upon your silver skin
Robots don't care where I've been
You've got to choose it to use it, so let me plug it in
Robots are my next of kin

I'm kissing high and low
Our bodies like two dominoes
Can I come and get you when I hit you in your party clothes
Let's turn this cosplay holiday, what we obey
And now we're welcoming each other to this cabaret

I don't think that it's so terrible
Anymore, anymore
I don't think that it's unbearable
Anymore

Tell me now, I know that it just won't stop
You will find your flow when you go robot
I want to thank you and spank you upon your silver skin
Robots don't care where I've been
You've got to choose it to use it, so let me plug it in
Robots are my next of kin

    General CommentWell, once in the interview, AK said that this album was insipred by a love that falls apart like an atom bang. So, I think, Anthony, tired of being in love that always ends and left him feel bad, so he wish he could be a robot, who wan't feel something like love or sad emothions etc. Robots don't care about feelings and emothions.

    My InterpretationThis is my favourite song from the album as lyrics aside it's such a funky/groovy song that just makes me feel happy.

    But looking at the lyrics I think the general sense of this song is that someone is falling in loving with a machine/robot rather than another human. The robot gives them everything they need. Maybe this is pointing towards our modern obsession with technology and social networks that are not so human.

    My InterpretationFor me, the song is about changing, growing and settling in general as a person. The equation I use for the song is change = the future = robots. "Robots" in this song represent a better future and positive change.

    Change is tumultuous, stressful and scary. We become so afraid of change we never really have a clear vision of the future. The protagonist of this song is describing how he eventually found a way to cope with change, and how he came to terms with moving forward.

    "I don't take these things so personal anymore/I don't think it's irreversible anymore."

    The protag is obviously coping with a loss or some kind of heartache, and he seems to have some experience with these bad situations. He's realizing he doesn't have to sulk, ruminate or hate himself anymore. He's learning and growing up.

    "Going robot" means to evolve. To become better. Not growing cold and emotionless, but "upgrading" yourself from your life experiences and becoming a stronger/smarter person and learning to adjust, accept and even manipulate change.

    "Robots are my next of kin." He is embracing the future, even thanking it for the great things it will bring. Robots represent the future and the good things it can bring. He's happy and ready to accept the future, instead of being terrified of it.

    General CommentI personally think that it is a song about rejection and finding love online now compared to a past of face to face rejection after rejection and the disco era bet brings us to a time of that

    "She said it with such a simple tone"
    She didn't try to soften the blow just not interested

    "Robots don't care where I've been robots are my next of kin"

    People online don't know the fucked up past and I love them like family
