"The Body Electric" as written by and Geddy Lee Weinrib Neil Peart....
One humanoid escapee
One android on the run
Seeking freedom beneath the lonely desert sun

Trying to change its program
Trying to change the mode, crack the code
Images conflicting into data overload

One zero zero one zero zero one
SOS
One zero zero one zero zero one
In distress
One zero zero one zero zero

Memory banks unloading
Bytes break into bits
Unit One's in trouble and it's scared out of its wits

Guidance systems break down
A struggle to exist
To resist
A pulse of dying power in a clenching plastic fist

One zero zero one zero zero one
SOS
One zero zero one zero zero one
In distress
One zero zero one zero zero

It replays each of the days
A hundred years of routines
Bows its head and prays
To the mother of all machines

    General Commentrush is all about hidden meanings and that is what makes them brilliant.
    You have the android seeking to create an identity, find his true self, make himself real and break away from the norm by thinking outside the box and running out on his own.
    But like in our lives identifying and sticking to what you believe in can end up in struggle and you think it over again and again.
    In your struggle you may fail and end up reverting back to a routine, the thing you tried to separate yourself from and the last resort is pray
