One humanoid escapee
One android on the run
Seeking freedom beneath a lonely desert sun

Trying to change it's program
Trying to change the mode -- crack the code
Images conflicting into data overload

1-0-0-1-0-0-1
S.O.S
1-0-0-1-0-0-1
In distress
1-0-0-1-0-0

Memory banks unloading
Bytes break into bits
Unit One's in trouble and it's scared out of it's wits

Guidance systems break down
A struggle to exist -- to resist
A pulse of dying power in a clenching plastic fist...

It replays each of the days
A hundred years of routines
Bows it's head and prays
To the mother of all machines...
