I want be man
I want be man
I want be man
I want be man

I don't like living inside
This metal plastic shell
It's no way to treat your help
They'll tell you go to hell

I want be man
I want be man
I want be man
I want be man

Faster master, I've got better things which I can do
Hey, I don't like livin' in this fleshy human shell
As much as I abuse it, It's really gone to hell

I want be man
I want be man
I want be man
I want be man

I'd rather be a robot
So I don't have to think
'Cause then I could be programmed
Where I don't have to dream

I'd rather be a man instead of a machine
Flesh and blood, life and death, it's a mystery
Nothing to be programmed, nothing is for sure
And least there's a meaning, a meaning to my life
I want be man, you want be me

I wanna live in your body
I wanna live in your body
I wanna live in your body
...
