lyrics

Robots Fade Away Part 1

Robots Fade Away, its my last mayday
Eyes are opened wide, blood pours out my side
You answered my call, distressed and all
I’m so glad to lay eyes on…
You my darling child, looking meek and mild
You’re so precious; it was worth my life…

Robots Fade Away Part 2

You win some and you loose some
But you pray when all is said and done
That you do not become that which you fought
Cause you can win the battle and still loose the war
I faugh that battle and almost lost that war

I’m like freaking Darth Vader at the end of film 6
Just a mangled mess of circuits and flesh
And just like that fallen Jedi,
I cast off my machinery to take one last pure breath
And in that moment I realize

Because I did not lose you, I did not lose the war
Because I did not lose you, I did not lose the war
Because I did not lose you, I did not lose the war
Because I did not lose you, I did not lose the war

This was never about them, it was always about us
They’d like you to think it was about them, but really its about us
This was never about them, it was always about us
They’d like you to think it was about them, but really its about us

Because I did not lose you, I did not lose the war
Because I did not lose you, I did not lose the war
Because I did not lose you, I did not lose the war
Because you did not lose me, you have won the war
