Watching Killer Robots Eat Your Head

Hear the version from 'Mistaken Identity":

Spoken over free time Ami, Dmi, and G chords:

This song is about you. It's called "Watching Killer Robots Eating Your Head."
      C
I was on I-95 just the other day,
F
And I guess I was one of the people who was in your way.
C
And you cut right in front of me without any sign;
G
But I guess you're in a hurry, and, buddy, that's just fine.
F
But now that I'm home and I've gone to bed,
G
I have a strange vision running all through my head ...

             Ami    C      G        C
I'm watching killer robots eat your head,
         Ami            C            G             C
Though I promise that I really don't WISH YOU WERE DEAD.
         Ami               C              Ami           C
Maybe my mind's telling me something, but what could it be?
     Ami         C               F                G
It's strangely enjoyable, but perhaps that's just me.
         F      C      G           C
Watching killer robots eating your head.

And now I'm in a meeting and, man, it's going long,
And I thought it was almost over, but, lord, I was wrong!
And you're raising up your hand and you're starting to talk,
And, not to be mean, but you seem as dumb as a rock.
And now you're accusing folks of not taking these meetings seriously!
And I close my eyes, and here's what I see:

I'm watching killer robots eat your head,
Though I swear that I really don't WISH YOU WERE DEAD.
Maybe my mind's telling me something, but what could it be?
'Cause it's strangely invigorating, but perhaps that's just me.
Watching killer robots eating your head.

So if you see me smiling strangely please just stay away,
'Cause I'm not hurting anybody, and let's keep it that way.
I'm a productive member of society,
Despite my odd and violent-seeming fantasy.
And if sometimes I've a faraway look in my eyes,
Don't ask me what I'm thinking, you might get a surprise:

I'm watching killer robots eat your head.
I swear that I really don't WISH YOU WERE DEAD.
Maybe my mind's telling me something, but what could it be?
'Cause it's strangely erotic—
   (Pause music, improvise something)
Watching killer robots eating your head
Watching killer robots eating your head
