Up here in space
I'm looking down on you.
My lasers trace
Everything you do.
You think you've private lives
Think nothing of the kind.
There is no true escape

I'm watching all the time.
I'm made of metal
My circuits gleam.
I am perpetual
I keep the country clean.

I'm elected electric spy
I protected electric eye.
Always in focus
You can't feel my stare.
I zoom into you
You don't know I'm there.
I take a pride in probing all your secret moves
My tearless retina takes pictures that can prove.

Electric eye, in the sky
Feel my stare, always there
'S nothing you can do about it.
Develop and expose
I feed upon your every thought
And so my power grows.
Protected. Detective.
Electric eye.

    I think sing song means, the governments constant eye on us, by satelite, and camera's where ever we are we are spyed on! Even thoigh many may not even know it! Except this band is supporting this, thinking ithese camera's and spy tools will keep america clean, which is total bullsites! America is headed towards fascism! And thi song makes me think this band is part of the illuminati

    Obviously the terminators are taking over. You can tell in the text that alot of refreances are to the terminator movies such as
    "i'm watching all the time,
    i'm made of metal,
    my circuits gleam
    i am perpetual
    i keep the country clean
    i'm elected electric spy
    i protected electric eye
    always focus you can't feel my stare
    i zoom into you
    you don't know i'm there
    i take a pride in probing all your secret moves
    my tearless retina takes pictures that can prove. "

    As you can see the referances to the terminator movies are very clear
