"Golem Ii: The Bionic Vapour Boy" as written by and Preston L Spruance....
Golem II: the self-perfecting
Lie-rejecting
Human mind correcting

Totem of the living
Self-organized, wrought from the clay
Our king by night, our slave by the day

Giga-giga-gilgamesh

What do you know?
Watch the human life show
OK let's go

O my double
He can pop your bubble
That means trouble

Stronger than a lion
Golem II: the bionic paper boy

Self-perfecting
World-inspecting
Lie-detecting

Our instructions
His induction
Big production

Golem II: the bionic puppet boy

Giga-gilgamesh
Gigagigagigagiga
Beast of burden

Spirit lifting
Master of shape-shifting
Seamless drifting

Shining spotlight
Screaming mobs and stage fright
You get it right

Building a new zion
Golem II: the bionic vapour boy

War-directing
Mind-inspecting
Man-correcting

Our instructions
His induction
Big production

Golem II: the bionic vapour boy

    General CommentQuoting Trey:

    "Golem 1 is simply 'the Golem,' the disturbing story of a superhuman clay homunculous that is brought to life Qabalisticaly in the Jewish tradition. Often this heavy tale is framed in the context of a children's story. Golem II is a Sesame Street/Muppet Movie style treatment of the the subject of Artificial Intelligence and the 'old' Golem's counterpart in the modern world - a growing mythic reality coming ever closer to the surface."

    Thanks, bunglefever.com.

    My InterpretationThe way I see it, the Golem seems to evolve throughout the course of the song. (Paper -> Puppet -> Vapour) and his description evolves the same way. He gets stronger, more secretive (master of shape-shifting), and more controlling as he advances to the point of scaring the people he was created to protect. I see this as a commentary on the growth of government.

    General Comment"Our king at night and slave by the day". I think that it's talking about dreams and how the sub-conscious when interpreted properly is trying to lead people to be better people but I don't know.
