Chameleon Circuit K9’s Lament Lyrics

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

But I wasn’t consulted, I was a little miffed

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

I’ve seen all of creation, but to it him 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
