Lead vocal: lenny zakatek

If I had a mind to
I wouldn't want to think like you
And if I had time to
I wouldn't want to talk to you

I don't care
What you do
I wouldn't want to be like you

If I was high class
I wouldn't need a buck to pass
And if I was a fall guy
I wouldn't need no alibi

I don't care
What you do
I wouldn't want to be like you

Back on the bottom line
Diggin' for a lousy dime
If I hit a mother lode
I'd cover anything that showed

I don't care
What you do
I wouldn't want to be like you

    This is most likely about someone who wishes to be independent from someone or something. The album's name, I Robot, probably has the narrator being a robot itself and under the master's rules, mind, and probably even appearance. The song also alludes to the narrator wishing to not benefit his master and going of on his own.
