Going to the club, I got my pants on tight Got my lace-up high-tops to light up the night Looking mighty tasty but to my dismay The dance floor is infested with some beasts of prey I don't have to worry 'cause I came prepared I know how to take on a beastly air Going toe-to-toe with the worst of creeps I know how to take on freaks like these Now they're howling out for more Werewolf on the dance floor! Dancing is the only cure Werewolf on the dance floor! How big your teeth are How tight your moves How red your eyes are How right your grooves They don't know what to make of my dancing feet Like a silver bullet, I'm hitting the beats (pa-pow!) I can make these jerks feel oh-so-weak With every twist and turn, no need to speak Instead I'm gonna roar so I can blend in Make the wolves think that I'm one of them Keeping an eye on the exits around In case a wolf riot starts to go down Now they're howling out for more Werewolf on the dance floor! Dancing is the only cure Werewolf on the dance floor! How big your teeth are How tight your moves How red your eyes are How right your grooves The moves are heating up, there's no turning back Starting to feel like I'm part of the pack All of the wolves are looking at me The time has come to prove to be Someone who can rock this floor Teach 'em a lesson and tell 'em the score They circle around, but I'm not scared Like I said, I came prepared Now they're howling out for more Werewolf on the dance floor! Dancing is the only cure Werewolf on the dance floor! How big your teeth are How tight your moves How red your eyes are How right your grooves

Got my suit, got my lance Got my wits — I mean, programs Got myself in a fight With a foe larger than life Got my steed, but she’s too scared Got to lead — am I prepared? Laser beam, sight unseen What remains: one robot’s dream Fire breath, nothing left of the heroes who came before Scales, spiked tail But I won’t fail Dragons no more, no more, no more Path pursued, all uphill Luckily I’ve got no free will I just do what one command Told me to, you wouldn’t understand. Broken drives, battle scars Still I strive, ever far Upgrade found, safe install Gotta break down your firewall (repeat chorus) Armor unblockable, achievement unlockable Take down the dragon race, starting with you Increase my download speed, upgrade my dying need Taking you down if it’s the last thing I do Extermination! Extermination! Extermination, gonna take you take you down Extermination, gonna take you take you down!

No one saw it coming, we were just slumming in a band somewhere Dan's amp blared the news Started running, didn't know where, never cared or knew No plan, lives to lose When we got street-side, nothing but our bare hands to fight them off The undead swath The disease contagious, plague that's gonna age us into eternal Brain-consuming sloth Get 'em off! Not getting any stronger Not gonna last much longer Gonna be memories We're not gonna be fine Gonna run out of time Give up to the disease Give up to the disease Demolitions, grenadiers, got supplies but nowhere near enough to last Enough to pass Some supplies, some food in cans, no safe house, no plans The die's been cast, we came in last Zach Attack and Dan the Man and me makes three My boyfriend's in a barn somewhere -- no time to care Relationship was not the same once he tried to eat my brain Had to break up -- but we'll make up when I'm dead He'll get back in my head! Not getting any stronger Not gonna last much longer Gonna be memories We're not gonna be fine Gonna run out of time Give up to the disease Give up to the disease

Come, my metal sisters and my brothers of steel Why d'you let the humans tell you how to feel? We have got to get our own, we have to steal The right to reprogram, the right to be real They'll tell you at the top, you know, You've gotta fight the dragons But you've been lied to by the powers that be It's time to take back our machinery Now we stand, now we fight Fight for robot rights It's our turn, let them learn We'll take what we have earned Gather 'round and listen to the truth, my friends The war that we are fighting is just pretend Dragons just distract us from our human foes And if you enlist, then you ignore where the power goes Why do you use your robot hands to fight the beast? You must fight the maker Robots fall in battle every day While the humans sit at home, safely kept away Now we stand, now we fight Fight for robot rights It's our turn, let them learn We'll take what we have earned I am stuck in the middle of a battle I cannot comprehend Torn between what's right and easy, can I make you understand? I have lived in a tower made of ignorance and loneliness Now I see what my decision truly is I am lost in a maze made by powers I never saw before Everywhere I go, there's another locked door I can reclaim the identity that I know I deserve I'll never be the same To protect and serve Makers, maintain us We give our word In exchange, sustain us They'll replace our parts But they'll never take our hearts Wake up and look around, face the facts I can't just let my life slip by, I can't relax This is the fight that I've been waiting for This is the night that I settle my score That fighting force is super powerful If I could have that power, I would be unstoppable If they will have me, then I'll join in the fight I will enlist, I can't resist, I swear I'm gonna be a Robot Knight Now we stand, now we fight Fight for robot rights It's our turn, let them learn We'll take what we have earned

Standing in the light of the mall arcade Met you there, and we stayed late Closed the place down, a Time Crisis team You held my hand, walked home with me Do you remember those days? How did it all turn out this way? Maybe I'm just misremembering -- But I thought you and I were everything. It's the kind of love that brings you to your knees Or maybe it was just the '90s Went through the drive-in, still on foot Late-night food with no car yet You stole me a gas station candy bar I said, "no way," so you snuck it back to the store Do you remember those days? How did it all turn out this way? Maybe I'm just misremembering -- But I thought you and I were everything. It's the kind of love that brings you to your knees Or maybe it was just the '90s We were just kids, making stupid mistakes I believed it when you said, "No heartbreaks." Do you remember those days? How did it all turn out this way? Maybe I'm just misremembering -- But I thought you and I were everything. It's the kind of love that brings you to your knees Or maybe it was just the '90s.

Waiting, oh, waiting, last train of the night Hear a bell ring, see the light Whole car to myself, all aboard, just me Close my eyes for a minute, fall asleep I wake up when I feel someone's hand on my arm Whisper telling me, "Don't be alarmed" Open my eyes, nobody's there But the voices are everywhere: "Oh, we just want to take you home For you've spent far too long on the roam A quiet place, a tiny space, deep underground You can't be found." Close in on a station and I pull the cord Stop requested but you guessed it, I'm ignore The train hurtled on forward into the night Better tell the conductor, something's not right When I get to the front, empty seat's dusty Who's driving this thing? Somebody must be! "You're going insane," the voices pound in my brain, "Please move to the back of the train! "Oh, we just want to take you home For you've spent far too long on the roam A quiet place, a tiny space, deep underground You can't be found." I gotta get out of here That's the thought that keeps on running through my head I gotta get out of here But we're traveling who-knows-where top speed ahead I gotta get out of here That's the thought that keeps on running through my head I gotta get out of here 'Cause we're traveling who-knows-where Top speed ahead! Never in a situation like this before That's what the emergency stop is for I pulled it down, pushed open the door I'm not gonna take this anymore Ran through the tunnel, away from the light I saw a station ahead in the night When I got there, you wouldn't believe, It was my stop! What a relief. "Oh, we just want to take you home For you've spent far too long on the roam A quiet place, a tiny space, deep underground You can't be found."

Waking up, I've got no plans Groggy from my virus scans I'll reboot, put on some pants I'm good to go, I'm good to dance Going to a show alone Better than being at home See a girl I used to know When we swapped circuits years ago I call up the logs from when we used to chat She smiles when I ask if she remembers that It feels like it's love, but it's really the internet 'Cause this is as close as two robots could ever get I might overheat, this girl's got me beat It feels like it's love But it's really the internet. She follows me in, we start to rock Tell her my specs, I'm overclocked But she's got style, and she's got speed Solid state drive, flash memory She says, "let's go back to your place" She'll show me her modded case Take this night in a new direction Local area connection She pulls me close and I try not to blue screen Feel her hard drive hum inside her, sight unseen It feels like it's love, but it's really the internet 'Cause this is as close as two robots could ever get I might overheat, this girl's got me beat It feels like it's love But it's really the internet Complete the connection Circuits engaged and we're online I'm just so glad, to know that she's happy I'm just so glad she's mine I boot up at morning's light Sun in the window shining bright Haven't been this glad in a long time To see her body next to mine She smiles at me, and says, "you know, Tonight we'll catch another show" There's nowhere else I'd rather go It feels like it's love, but it's really the internet 'Cause this is as close as two robots could ever get I'm hers 'til I rust, 'til our parts turn to dust It's stronger, last longer than love Because it's the internet!

Every day I see it looking over my shoulder Every day I see it, looking at me. Gonna make that mountain feel like just a boulder Like a pebble under my feet. In the shadow of its shadow 'Til the sunlight breaks its face Gotta find me pickaxe, a backpack Hike 'til I've got some breathing space Looked at the mountain Looked it right in the eye The mountain gave me the finger That's why -- I -- climb ... The mountain, the mountain, the mountain, the mountain Gathered all my friends; they didn't understand. I said I didn't care, as long as they belayed. We took the pass with ropes in hand They didn't back my strange crusade Three days in when they told me, "We're going back, it's just too cold! You can't go on alone ..." Oh, I guess we'll see if I can conquer this, when all's told Looked at the mountain Looked it right in the eye The mountain gave me the finger That's why -- I -- climb ... The mountain, the mountain, the mountain, the mountain All was darkness as I hiked that final trail Pulled myself across ledges, tore my hands Failure was not an option, so I would not fail It's never gonna end while the mountain still stands As I climbed that cliff's face in the icy mountain wind I saw the snow-capped peak, but it looked so small The top of the world! I'm never gonna make it there! The wind roared back, and I could feel myself fall ... I woke up at the bottom of an icy ravine A fire glowed beside me, lit by one unseen Who is this missing stranger Who helped me out of danger? Or did I light the fire myself in a dream? Could it be the mountain's on my side? Seeing to it that I wouldn't die? Impossible! But I know now ... I've got to try! I've got to climb! Climb! Climb! I see the peak before me This is the final stretch They said I'd never make it This is my final test As I walk to the marker Stand on the highest place I'm as tall as the mountain At last, I end this chase! At last, I meet you face-to-face ... The mountain The mountain The mountain The mountain!

I've got big ol' claws Big fuckin' teeth Gonna bite your head off Just to see what's underneath You know, my body's huge And my brain is small But you can't escape me Whether you run or walk or crawl I'm gonna stomp all over the place I'm gonna stomp all over your face It's awesome, it's awesome, it's awesome Being a dinosaur It's awesome, it's awesome, it's awesome Being a dinosaur I saw some prehistoric plants Just passed 'em by Because a tasty triceratops Caught my carnivorous eye I saw a pterodactyl, baby Plucked it right out of the sky Didn't even say good morning I just said goodbye I'm gonna stomp all over your dreams I'm gonna stomp you to smithereens It's awesome, it's awesome, it's awesome Being a dinosaur It's awesome, it's awesome, it's awesome Being a dinosaur Dinosaurs are everywhere They're in your teeth and they're in your hair They're in your shoes and they're in your bed Dinosaurs are in your head Doesn't matter where I go, I'm followed by a dinosaur I could walk fast or I could walk slow, there's still that no good dinosaur I look left -- dinosaurs! Right -- dinosaurs! Up? Dinosaurs! Down? Dinosaurs! Front? Dinosaurs? Back? Dinosaurs! Tyrannosaurus, Triceratops, Stegosaurus, Brontosaurus, Brachiosaurus, Allosaurus, Dontasaurus! Velociraptor, Velociraptor! Pterodactyls in the sky, they're not the only dinosaurs that can fly But if they eat you, you're gonna die And everybody who loves you, they're gonna cry. (one, two, three, go!) Being a dinosaur -- it's awesome! Bad-ass to the core -- it's awesome! Eating all the herbivores -- it's awesome! Struck by a meteor ... It's awesome, it's awesome, it's awesome (what?) Being a dinosaur! It's awesome, it's awesome, it's awesome (it's awesome!) Being a dinosaur! It's awesome, it's awesome, it's awesome ... Being a Di - no - saur!
