Track Name: Giant Robot Apocalypse
It's covered by cloud
Whispering through
This is a new kind of science
A mechanical sound on every last channel
I think it's coming this way

You're out of your frame
You must be new to this
Just give me a second to collect my composure

The buildings collapse from the weight of the punch
I think we'd better keep our mouths shut
A hailstorm of missles
You can't sing for shit
You've set the whole place on fire
Track Name: Research
It doesn't look so bad from here
Fell in its own footprint
Finger on the blue part of the map
I think I've seen enough from here
You should see the notes I took
Looks just like I've got some sort of plan

I've been doing research
Floating somewhere over sea
Hoping for happy accidents
And everywhere but here is bleached of just a little more color
Everyone is gonna be just fine.
Track Name: Mexican Standoff
The light is still on in the room
The smoke is filling up the sky
You are this great, immovable something
I summon colossal floods.

Don't give it anymore caffeine
It just needs a place to sleep
These things take time and tact that we don't have
The water spilling through the gate

A little less avant-garde this time
I'd like to think you'll thank me one day
These things are predetermined
If that's what you believe in
The light dimming in the room

She's never coming back.
Track Name: Automate
I think they've got it down to some kinda science at this point
And only I am smart enough to put two and two together
And really I'm the only one who seems to be immune to all of this
And maybe that sounds arrogant
Or maybe you're just a sucker.

They've got you on the radio
Shooting sine waves looped at the hour
If only you were smart enough
You'd sense some kind of pattern
I think you might have missed the point
You probably should have read the words
I think they love you anyway
Tell 'em just what they wanna hear

But you've got no imagination.
And you know

Somebody's gonna choke for this
They must not have liked the lighting
They're putting out a cigarette right in the palm of your hand, brother
If only you were more aware
You'd sense them right behind you
Automating every limb
Every last dead appendage

Come on and use just a little imagination.
You've got no imagination.
Track Name: The Alchemist
Earth's not cooling off
I've gotta find another way out
It's all coming down
They might be coming back
I've gotta build a bigger robot
Catch them by surprise
Becoming a problem
I think I need a stronger drink please
And maybe a weapon
Can't plan for nothing
They fall into another black hole
Food for the shark tank

Oooh I'm playing God
I'm playing with a chemistry set
And burn the whole thing down.

Both eyes on the ball, boy
I've got this all under control
It's almost like clockwork
Don't scale it back now
You should have seen the look on your face
You make it so easy
Still half a bottle
I think I'll pour another landmark
And leave it in your yard
Don't you look at me like that
It's all I can do not to melt.

Oooh I'm playing God
I'm playing with a chemistry set
And burn the whole thing down.
Track Name: Climate Change
It's ringing in my ear
Getting closer every twenty seconds
I've wondered if there might be something else I forgot to mention
You don't seem to be afraid
You're safe on your ship for now
Fast asleep
Listen for the sound.

You look it in the eye and see artifacts left over from the biggest battles
You never really tried to stop changing with the climate
Like it even matters
They're coming through again in waves
But I've left you somewhere safe for now
Fast asleep
Listen for the sound.
