You're just walking 'round your little mazes
Figuring out how to get by
How to get laid and get famous
Get yourself paid, impress the guys

You're taught to divide the world into
Buddies and wives, sluts and wimps
And ever since, you've kept a scorecard
How else to prove you're such the pimp

You are just a robot
Executing a program

Get on the train where the crowd is tightening
To push yourself up against a girl
And when you're not getting play, you keep trying
You don't understand the consensual way

You are just a robot
Executing a program
You are just a robot
An imitation of a man

She told me one night when we were lying quiet and cold
"Something not right"
It had been months since the good times
Once there was sun and now there was night

And she said to me as she turned on the light
"There's something you don't know keeps me from feeling right
I once knew a guy, I'd seen him around
He knew all my friends, he came from town

One night at a party, we both were there
He followed me into the bathroom, he grabbed my hair"
And she said, "I still remember just how the floor felt
And how my head would hit the tub"

Now where is that robot
Is he alive or is he done?
Does he breathe air that I breathe
Is he kept warm by the same sun?

You are just a robot
Executing a program
An imitation of a man
Executing a program

An imitation of a man
An imitation of a man
An imitation of a man
An imitation of a man
An imitation of a man
