Chameleon Circuit

Chameleon Circuit - K9\'s Lament

rate me

I knew a man that I will never forget

But nobody ever remembers the pet

He took me from the year 5000 on a lonely asteroid

He said he was looking for a droid

He was my master, his attention I did crave

To him, I was nothing more than a slave

We saved creatures all across the galaxy

But nobody ever thought to save me

And I wonder what life would be like if

I could choose not to say affirmitive

People tell me what to do and I just roll along

But inside my metal head I'm singing my song

Treacherous compliance, what have you done to me?

I'm a fraction of the shadow of the canine I could be

I see other dogs in the park fetching sticks and digging bones

Never has a tin dog ever felt so alone

Oh no

He gave me to Sarah Jane as a gift

I wasn't consulted, I was a little miffed

Is this what I'm reduced to, just a casual memento?

I've seen all of creation, but to it I'm incidental

But there's more to this automaton than they will ever know

I'm more than just alloys and circuits, I have soul

And I've got dreams just like everybody else

I could conquer the world if I could conquer myself

And I wonder what life would be like if

I could choose not to say affirmitive

People tell me what to do and I just roll along

But inside my metal head I'm singing my song

Treacherous compliance, what have you done to me?

I'm a fraction of the shadow of the canine I could be

I see other dogs in the park fetching sticks and digging bones

Never has a tin dog ever felt so alone

Oh no

And I wonder what life would be like if

I could choose not to say affirmitive

People tell me what to do and I just roll along

But inside my metal head I'm singing my song

Treacherous compliance, what have you done to me?

I'm a fraction of the shadow of the canine I should be

I see other dogs in the park, they're fetching sticks and digging bones

Never has a tin dog ever felt so alone

Oh no
