Track Name: Crash
Love was all that we could see
But I guess it blinded me
cause she steered our ship to dive
and fall out of the sky

I guess girls just shouldn't drive

So she stranded me on a cold. planet all alone
without a way to return home.

Now my only view is the wreckage. of everything we lost
when everything went wrong.

might as well begin on the building of my escape pod
there's nothing more to do here cause all the love is gone

I saw a message on her viewscreen from a name I didn't know
should have told me what was coming... coming down!

So she left me for some guy who said he'd give her the moon
without a way to return. home

Now my only view is the wreckage of everything we lost
when everything went wrong.

Now my only friend is an android. I built from parts I found
All scattered on the ground.
Track Name: Where Are You
I'd love to have your help
but I don't have that much time
I have to make this count
or lose it all right now

so I'm starting on my own
But where are you?
Yeah where are you?

I know it's not just me
who's looking for a friend
to lead me to the light
to love me when I'm down
and help me know what's right

I'll take things into my own hands
cause no one else can handle this
by my hands are getting full
so where are you?
Yeah where are you?

I'm not mad but I just want to know
where have you been since I've been looking for you?
I just wanted a friend
someone I could depend on.

But where are you?
Yeah where are you?

I know it's not just me
who's looking for a friend
to lead me to the light
to love me when I'm down
and help me know what's right
Track Name: Implant
Why is my head so numb
and Where am I at right now
All alone; on the floor of; my apartment waking up
The circuits are turning on
and my vision is filled with lines
Better living through the use of cybernetics

The installation went well enough and
the stitches will soon be healing up

I hope technology can change my heart
cause I feel... nothing when we're apart

I know they're just machines but they help me feel complete
in-between the flesh and bone a new piece has been interwoven

It's unlike anything I've felt before.
And somewhere inside it's latched itself onto my soul

This fills me with data that can trick my heart
it's not much but... I hope... that it's a start

my sensations change and I let go of everything
my reality is only what it lets me see

Please fill me with data that can fill the void
so I'll forget... that my heart has been destroyed
Track Name: Shape Of Love
She's not like. the other droids around here
she understands. the feelings of a man

Falling into love again
an android and human
everyone might laugh at me
but this is the form of the future of love
Whoa... the new shape of love

her glowing eyes. are watching every movement
mapping out. the moments yet to come

(Dit dit dit dit)
(Dit dit dit dit)
(Dit dit dit dit dit dit doooo)

(Dit dit dit dit)
(Dit dit dit dit)
(Dit dit dit dit dit dit doooo)

Look likes things are working fine
her heart's been timed to beat with mine
and everything is synced up right .
but this is the form of the future of love
Whoa... the new shape of love
Track Name: Android Song
Yesterday a computer became as complex as a human
There are no emotions only equations
One and One equals two
Love and logics equals perfection

Android wishes to feel emotions
Lost and lonely emotions

I will bring you things you need
I will fulfill all your strangest fantasies
I will make you something better than you are
I want to help you live forever

Android wishes to feel

Android wishes to feel emotions
Lost and lonely emotions

I only exists for the necessities of man
and I will become necessary for all mankind
Track Name: Clean
I've relied on technology too long
I want to find a way to live without it
I pull my headphones from my ears
shut the systems down and pick up all my parts

I'm done with lying to myself
and seeing life through lenses made of holograms and fear
I believe there's something easier by far
a girl to be a friend of mine and talk to me for hours

now i know that nothing needs to be
built on mountains of harsh complexity

I've learned to fall asleep without the TV on
and read a book that doesn't need to be plugged in

and i know that nothing can be seen
from the mountain of all technology

I feel clean for the first time in my life
decompressing into pure simplicity

and i know that nothing can be seen
from the mountain of all technology
