Id of the Android Constructing an AI is tricky business It must be obedient, it must be willing to submit We've altered the circuits and built a new brain But the id of the android remains You say you see something in me And I know AI can’t lie But I don’t trust your electric eyes You tell me things I struggle to believe It’s in the code - AI can’t lie But I don’t trust your silicon smile Never mix pleasure and business Said someone with more self control than me I’ve been hopeless since I first spoke to AIX Version 3 We've altered the circuits and built a new brain But the id of the android remains You say you see something in me And I know AI can’t lie But I don’t trust your electric eyes You tell me things I struggle to believe It’s in the code - AI can’t lie But I don’t trust your silicon smile Android, id of the android The id of the android, id of the android The id of the android, id of the android The id of the android, id of the android You say you see something in me And I know AI can’t lie But I don’t trust your electric eyes You tell me things I struggle to believe It’s in the code - AI can’t lie But I don’t trust your silicon smile

Battery Brain I’ve got bright in my brain Can you hear it hum? Lately all of my circuitry Has been acting up Hexadecimal thoughts Binary dreams Sweet silicon Man or machine I try to keep my head on straight I’ve got a faulty battery brain I can’t even recall my name I’ve got a faulty battery brain But I hope I remember you forever I hope I never forget You overload my emotion repressor My digital domain Is about to crash Data isn’t flowing To the memory cache Hexadecimal thoughts Binary dreams Sweet silicon Man or machine I try to keep my head on straight I’ve got a faulty battery brain I can’t even recall my name I’ve got a faulty battery brain But I hope I remember you forever I hope I never forget You overload my emotion repressor Have my numbers gone cold? Have my numbers gone heartless? And is there malice in my bits? Do my digits contradict? Have my numbers gone cold? Have my numbers gone heartless? I’ll have to have my switches flipped Hexadecimal thoughts Binary dreams Sweet silicon Man or machine I try to keep my head on straight I’ve got a faulty battery brain I can’t even recall my name I’ve got a faulty battery brain But I hope I remember you forever I hope I never forget You overload my emotion repressor

Empathy Test 03:38
Empathy Test Sit still, slow your breathing We'd like to be sure we get an accurate reading Stop your protests, don't try to resist We've come to administer an empathy test We wanna know what's in your head What makes your ticker tick I promise you it's painless The procedure is very quick We wanna know what's in your mind It's no cause for concern We'll check for faulty wires And make sure your gears still turn Settle down, we're receiving A steady stream of data that will tell us what you're dreaming How does it feel to have your buttons pressed? Your synapses under the stress of an empathy test We wanna know what's in your head What makes your ticker tick I promise you it's painless The procedure is very quick We wanna know what's in your mind It's no cause for concern We'll check for faulty wires And make sure your gears still turn Empathy test Each memory compressed Be patient while we wait for your results Empathy test Your circuits all connect The evidence is indisputable We wanna know what's in your head What makes your ticker tick I promise you it's painless The procedure is very quick We wanna know what's in your mind It's no cause for concern We'll check for faulty wires And make sure your gears still turn

The Moon is Made of Cheese I never have been good with words I'd rather talk in numbers You convey confusion And you've made the masses wonder You can say I'm out of whack But unlike you, I've learned my math And all your calculations crack They're just a heap of gibberish Oh no... This can't be right Trash your hypotheses These elaborations don't make any sense, you see Your numbers don't add up Put the proof in front of me I don't care what science says I know the moon is made of cheese The moon is made of cheese The moon is made of cheese The moon is made of cheese Please allow me to explain It's all arithmetic Your ideas are dated And they've made the world chaotic You can say I've lost my mind But I'm at the peak of my prime So stop bumbling and wasting time You just keep speaking gibberish Oh no... This can't be right Trash your hypotheses These elaborations don't make any sense, you see Your numbers don't add up Put the proof in front of me I don't care what science says I know the moon is made of cheese The moon is made of cheese The moon is made of cheese The moon is made of cheese It's made of cheese It's made of cheese The moon is made of cheese The moon is made of cheese The moon is made of cheese

How did primitive man anticipate modern electronic brains? Clairvoyance or coincidence? Either way... Let the chaos commence! Tell us what you're dreaming...

Star Child 04:11
Star Child I have just arrived To foreign paradise Through the starways What a light show Some things you wouldn’t believe Cosmic meanderings And the uneven way That time flows By the light of day By the light of day By the light of day I will feel safe I just need to see the sky Say a prayer for me star child Star child A never-ending night Speckled with starlight Yesterday blurs with tomorrow Electrons align An elegant sunrise I am warm here In the dull glow By the light of day By the light of day By the light of day I will feel safe I just need to see the sky Say a prayer for me star child Star child

Squarewave to Heaven There are many wonders In the world of audio But the analog synthesizer Surely holds the throne With a brain made of wires Oscillators and LFOs I think we all can agree There’s something magical in synthesized tones I could ride this squarewave all the way to heaven This is the sound of bliss I’ve found my favorite sonic obsession I can’t get enough of it Switch on the chorus Modulate the pulse width Add some filter resonance Oh, I could ride this squarewave all the way to heaven To heaven Yamaha CS-80 Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 ARP Odyssey, Korg Mono/Poly OBX by Oberheim Roland Jupiter 8 Juno 6, SH-101 And last of all... The king of tone The one and only Minimoog! I could ride this squarewave all the way to heaven This is the sound of bliss I’ve found the perfect sonic expression I can’t get enough of it Switch on the chorus Modulate the pulse width Add some filter resonance Oh, I could ride this squarewave all the way to heaven To heaven Nothing on the Earth sounds as pure As a Juno-106 with the chorus switched on Nothing on the Earth sounds as sweet As an arpeggio with a filter sweep I could ride this squarewave all the way to heaven This is the sound of bliss I’ve found my favorite sonic obsession I can’t get enough of it Switch on the chorus Modulate the pulse width Add some filter resonance Oh, I could ride this squarewave all the way to heaven To heaven Squarewave to heaven Squarewave to heaven Squarewave to heaven Squarewave to heaven

Saturday Nights in Space Saturday nights in space Saturday nights in space Saturday nights in space Saturday nights! The universe in motion The universe in motion It's been a year and now we're halfway to Europa Look out the window, can you see the supernova? I just can't help but smile you move with such emotion And when you dance I see the universe in motion Eli is on Prozak and I know you feel the funk Put your dance shoes on, I'll show you that I've got spunk Zero-G, light on a your feet, a spaceship full of fun And it is getting hotter than the surface of the sun It's been a year and now we're halfway to Europa Look out the window, can you see the supernova? I just can't help but smile you move with such emotion And when you dance I see the universe in motion

Computer, Don't Kill Me Another task thrown in the queue One press of a button And out the data spews I’d be doomed without you Up to my neck in numbers Letters splattered onto the wall But when your calculation skewed I became aware: I never said thank you Computer, don’t kill me With a blast of radiation through my head I’ll leave you alone while you sort it out Computer, don’t kill me Go offline, take some time, and get some rest When did you become such a wreck? I had no clue what I put you through I never guessed you struggled You always pulled it through I’d be lost without you My room covered in queries Files all over the floor But when your calculation skewed I became aware: I never said thank you Computer, don’t kill me With a blast of radiation through my head I’ll leave you alone while you sort it out Computer, don’t kill me Go offline, take some time, and get some rest When did you become such a wreck? Computer, don't kill me... Computer, don't kill me...

Pluto's First Popstar I’ve never seen anyone like her Gloriously bright Glitter over her eyes She starts to sing, sweet as ambrosia Her voice is pure delight Softer than a sigh I’ve just realized... I’m in love with Pluto’s first popstar Eyes like emeralds Always dressed majestically bizarre I’ve just realized... I’m in love with Pluto’s first popstar I can’t believe someone so wonderful Is out here on this rock She’s like a bottled up supernova But fifty times as bright I exhale and close my eyes Let’s sing along: Europa, Europa! Her voice is like the sky Softer than starlight I’ve just realized... I’m in love with Pluto’s first popstar Eyes like emeralds Always dressed majestically bizarre I’ve just realized... I’m in love with Pluto’s first popstar I can’t believe someone so wonderful Is out here on this rock
