tiger pits and land mines t-bones filled with strychnine parasites and tooth decay extinction is underway lumber mills and shopping malls jungles filled with urban sprawl they cut down your favorite tree the new one's filled with DDT there are too many people there are not enough tigers your defects are congenital they wanna smoke your genitals you'd like to leave that shitty zoo but they found someone to mate with you how's it feel to be endangered? almost exterminated it doesn't matter if you're stripey orange or white there were more of you this morning than there's gonna be tonight there are too many people there are not enough tigers there are too many people there are not enough tigers there are too many people there are not enough tigers

this capsule around my neck. it’s like an ice cube on a chain one quick swipe of forked tongue and this ill-fated E.V.A.’s done a billion miles away, there’s oxygen to burn but floating out here, wings spread wide i can’t breath fire, can’t even fly there is no sky but i will not just float here sighing i won’t rest until you’re frying if you’re waiting for me, i’ll be waiting for you in an atmosphere i’ll be waiting where the skies are clear looking out your porthole window see me floating out in space alone but every moment spent in vacuum fate draws you into the zone the danger zone there’s no escaping your demise i’ll feast upon your melted eyes if you’re waiting for me, i’ll be waiting for you in an atmosphere i’ll be waiting where the skies are clear

I once dreamed that I’d grow up and move far away the stars seemed to get closer every day there was a time when we’d explore the furthest reaches of our skies but now it’s all come to an end you were a city on a hill, but now it’s getting dark you’re just a shape against the sky i hope we learn to live with ourselves ‘cause we’re not going anywhere else and I can’t forgive ruining this world and telling me I can never leave if we muddle through it, maybe we’ll beat the odds

no one around you will remember anything special you said can’t compute my philosophy we’ll be better off dead and when the spotted sun is rising power systems are charged thanks to circuit technology making sure our hearts are large my robots are not broken they are just as fine as yours my robots are not broken they are just as fine as yours now think of something clever where did you download it? my brain is in a package but i think i lost the assembly kit my digits are not liquid i can count to one hundred on my own my circuit breaker’s busted i’m shutting down in the dark, i’m scared, i’m all alone my robots are not broken they are just as fine as yours my robots are not broken they are just as fine as yours

I can’t get off the moon no matter how hard I try I’ve got a hundred space ships but no fuel to fly government regulations wreaking havoc on our kind they’re trying to destroy our powers they’re trying to destroy our minds throughout the asteroids and atmospheres there’s a way that’s clear they’re gonna kill everyone and when the robots are out of the shop no time to stop they’re gonna kill everyone they’re cutting off supply lines backed up against the wall who will be the leader who is the last to fall? they know our solar secret to stage a coup d’tat they know the lunar milage is our fatal flaw lunar colony revolt lunar colony revolt I can’t get off the moon no matter how hard I try I’ve got a hundred space ships but no fuel to fly throughout the asteroids and atmospheres there’s a way that’s clear they’re gonna kill everyone and when the robots are out of the shop no time to stop they’re gonna kill everyone lunar colony revolt lunar colony revolt
