Metropolis by Janelle Monae

View a sky without any blue.

Breakfast on incandescent built to chew.

Dream to find another world

Where a cyborg can love and a cyber girl is still a queen.



And it's a common thought

That wired folk can be sold and bought.

That we have no feelings no memories or minds

That we're bionic strumpets only worth a dime.

To some it's a surprise when I smile.

And when I hold your hand they say

"How can a wired thing understand?

Love is too deep; it's too wide to feel

When your soul is a button

And your foot glows in heels."

Program. Program. Reprogram.

One nation under a microchip.

Neon slaves electric savages

Open your hearts. Open your eyes. Your chariot will arrive.

Hey Anthony Greendown from sector nine. (From sector nine)

With beautiful eyes

I've served you now about thirty-eight times.

Thirty-eight times I've looked in those eyes.

You see me laughing the love when I hold your hand

I wanna take you take you with me to another land.



Where there's no law

Tying my heart from the start.

Where there's no war if my dreams run a little wild

But if there's no call from joy control.

No call.

Please go with me.

Oh come with me.

I need you.

Let's leave. Let's leave.

Come. Come. Come.
