Song: The Body Electric

Lyrics: One humanoid escapee
One android on the run
Seeking freedom beneath
A lonely desert sun

Trying to change its program
Trying to change the mode-
Crack the code
Images conflicting
Into data overload

In distress

Memory banks unloading
Bytes break into bits
Unit One's in trouble
And it's scared out of its wits

Guidance systems break down
A struggle to exist-
To resist-
A pulse of dying power
In a clenching plastic fist...

It replays each of the days
A hundred years of routines
Bows its head and prays
To the mother of all machines...

Length: 5:00
