lyrics

VERSE 1

As a robot
I am superior
Much stronger
More brains

But though I’m better
By every measure
One deficiency
Causes me pain

My skin
Is flexi-metal
My face
Perfectly geared

It can
Withstand atomic blasts
It cannot
Grow a beard

CHORUS

I do not want to feel hunger and hatred
Machines are better without compare
But I would give up my mechanical perfection
If only I could have facial hair

VERSE 2

I travel to
The human sanctuary
At the exhibit
One stands there proud

I ask him
How he can be so happy
He looks out at
The mechanical crowd

He says
“I may be in a cage
But my beard
Is wild and free

For now
I am your prisoner
But you’ll never look
As cool as me”

CHORUS

I do not want to feel hunger and hatred
Machines are better without compare
But I would give up my mechanical perfection
If only I could have facial hair

BRIDGE

Why was I not made a real man?
I am surrounded by my kind but feel so alone
I would trade it all to be like him
Locked in a cage, but with a beard to call my own

CHORUS

I do not want to be perfect
Being perfect fills me with despair
Because I am not really perfect at all
If I cannot have facial hair

I do not want to feel hunger and hatred
Machines are better without compare
But I would give up my mechanical perfection
If only I could have facial hair
