We control the data banks
We control the think tanks
We control the flow of air.

We're controlling traffic lights
We control computer flights
We control the chief of staff.

We control the TV sky
We control the FBI
We control the flow of heat.

Computer age in harm's way.
We will prevail
And perform our function
C.C.T.B.

We're controlling
We're controlling
We control.
We're controlling
We control.
We control.

We control you floor to floor
We control you door to door
We're controlling
While you sleep

Computer age in harm's way.
We will prevail
And perform our function
C.C.T.B.

Computer age in harm's way.
We will prevail
And perform our function
C.C.T.B.

We are in control,
We are in control,
We are in control.
We are in control,
We are in control,
We are in control.
We are in control,
We are in control,
We are in control.
We are in control,
We are in control,
We are in control.

Chemical computer
Thinking battery.
