Ice Cube – Man Vs. Machine lyrics

[Intro:]
Yo, we in a fight for our lives
We in a fight for our lives
And the trick thing about it
I don't know if we can win
And what's sad? I don't thing we wanna win

[Verse 1- Ice Cube]
Can you help me? A n-gga need a job
I'm desperate, for some corn on the cob
I'm helpless, will I have to steal and rob?
No black? Dinner so I got to ask bob
Bob got a job but it's done by a robot
No lunch breaks so it could do a whole lot
More than a human being and it's European,
Ran by a Korean, American,
So there I am, surrounded by aluminum
There's no way you can run,
There's no way you can be,
It's just and me, versus modern day machinery

[Chorus - Ice Cube] x2
It's man vs machine baby
My head's in the guillotine baby
It might take it off clean baby
Automated dreams it was man vs machine baby

[Verse 2 - Ice Cube]
I'm a fly caught in the web
A fish stuck in the internet
Don't they know I'm a deathly catch?
Eat this meat, every bite so full of stress
So what can I say to you?
I'm highly relatable and biodegradable
I thought we was unfadeable
Slaves to machinery, is that the way to go?
I don't need you to f-ck 24/7
I guess that computer love
I don't need you to love
Human contact ain't what it used to was

[Chorus - Ice Cube] x2
It's man vs machine baby
My head's in the guillotine baby
It might take it off clean baby
Automated dreams it was man vs machine baby

[Outro-Ice Cube] x2
The whole world is automated
It need to be investigated
When people are eliminated
What we supposed to do when it's time to feed all the babies?
[End]
