intro: synth

C             G          Am             F
Mother was an incubator, father was the contents
     C                G              F          C
Of a test tube in the ice box in the factory of birth
   C         G           Am           F
My name is 905, and I've just become alive
        C          G            F              C
I'm the newest populator of the planet we call Earth

      C         G          Am                  F
In suspended animation, my childhood passed me by
     C              G                F               C
If I speak without emotion, then you know the reason why
C                Bb           Am          F
Knowledge of the universe was fed into my mind
      C          Bb            A         Bb
As my adolescent body left its puberty behind

F            G              Am
Everything I know is what I need to know
F            G                  Am
Everything I do has been done before
      F              G
Every sentence in my head
Am           G   F
Someone else has said
        C         G          F    C
At each end of my life is an open door

{8 bars fill -- C variation}

Automatically defrosted, my manhood came on time
I became a man, I left the ice school behind
Now I'm to begin the life that I'm assigned
A life that's been used before a thousand times

  Am             G                Bb           F
I have a feeling deep inside that something is missing
         Am          G          Bb         F
It's a feeling in my soul and I can't help wishing
      Am              G               Bb       G
That one day I'll discover that we're living a lie
         C              Bb    Am          Bb
And I'll tell the whole world the reasons why
                F
But until then, 

all I know is what I need to know
Everything I do has been done before
Every idea in my head
Someone else has said
At each end of my life is an open door
