Micr0waveman I'm so glad they stuck with their musical career instead of getting "real jobs" at the factory assembling cars. Mega-Wattson really is a vocal force x distance to be reckoned with. Favorite track: These People Like to Dance.

etezcatl Compressorhead me impresionó en un principió por el simple hecho de ser robots tocando música. El hecho de que no se hubieran quedado sólo en eso, sino que además quienes manejan el proyecto se dedicaron a integrarle también composiciones propias bastante buenas y de reminiscencias al buen rock pesado "clásico", lo hacen un proyecto extraordinario. Espero con ansias el próximo álbum. Compressorhead ist super toll! Favorite track: Compressorhead.

Turn me on I‘m ready to go Your wind is in my sails You know I‘m good when the pressure‘s on This hardware, it never fails Plug it in and we‘ll do it tonight Turn it on and we‘ll do it up right Ten Bars and we bust a nut Tell you what, tell you what (Chorus) When the hammer comes down You‘ve got to turn me, c‘mon turn me on now When the pressure is on (Suck up that PSI, you‘re gonna suck it dry) When the chips are down Don‘t want to take control, just want to rock and roll When the hammer comes down Compressorhead Nothing like a well oiled machine On the tip of your tongue Squeeze me, tease me, you‘re gonna please me You are my iron lung Plug it in and we‘ll do it tonight Turn it on and we‘ll do it up right Ten Bars and water cut And I‘ll tell you what (Chorus) ...Yeah! (Chorus) Come on baby, plug it in! Yeah!

3. Speed Walking Lady (Allright everybody! Get up and walk!) Well she puts on her shoes and she goes for a walk 25 times around the city block All the hustle and the bustle, well you better step aside Speed walking lady‘s just hittin‘ her stride (Chorus) My baby‘s out walking around She‘s out all over this town My baby‘s out walking around She‘s out all over this town Speed walking lady heh heh (She‘s rockin‘, speed walkin‘) Speed walking lady heh heh (She‘s rockin‘, speed walkin‘) Speed walking lady heh heh (She‘s rockin‘, speed walkin‘) Speed walking lady, hey! Speed walking lady! [x4] Now she‘s in her peeny plane, flying high in the air My speed walking lady is aloft somewhere (In the wild blue yonder) Buzzin all around (When the rubber hits the road) It‘s always two feet on the ground Speed walking lady you look so fine Cheeks as sweet as new cherry wine And the track suit‘s got all the boys in a panic My little speed walker (She‘s aero-dynamic!)

Legions of the walking dead Iron and steel ripping through their heads Mindless, senseless, marching forth Swarm the unfeeling metal force (Chorus) Zombies vs robots [x4] Innocence, no innocence No mercy, no benevolence Below the surface hatred thrives Above, a world no one survives (Chorus) Amongst the living, lifeless forms Above the waste, a brewing storm Warring tribes, blind on blind Rid the world of all mankind (Chorus) [x2]

It‘s a revolution based on time sometimes space A rhythmic retribution, you got such a groovy face I might dance right next to you, you look so good tonight We‘ll stomp around while crushing all the ants These people like to dance (Nah nah) It‘s a revolution not designed to fuck you up It‘s a scene that breathes with energy, with every sip and every sup (Sup) I might dance right next to you, while staring at your pants We‘ll stomp around just killing all the ants These people like to dance (Nah nah) It‘s a revolution based on time sometimes space A rhythmic retribution, you got such a groovy face I might dance right next to you, you look so good tonight We‘ll stomp around while crushing all the ants Let’s dance (Nah nah)

What do you expect from me? Some cosmic relevance Some artificial intellegence? I‘m as sharp as a tack Lid‘s on tight The old Tin Man he thinks he can You know I can (Chorus) I am what I am Demons and gods be damned I am a metal man I am what I am Demons and gods be damned I am a metal man [x3] I ain‘t no rose No sweet aroma I‘m just a midi receiver With a rock and roll diploma A bucket of bolts, not a bag of bones A piston packin‘ Papa But I got no heart, they forgot that part I guess they forgot that part Chorus() What do you expect of me? What‘s in a name? That which you call a robot We rock as hard I‘m gonna rock as hard I‘m gonna rock as hard I‘m gonna rock as hard And that‘s all she wrote... (Chorus)

Made To Be 03:16
A collection of those who came before me The latest version of uniformity They cut me out Cut and paste Delete the trash Erased the waste Installing programs from the ages (Chorus) Made to be I'm not what I was Made to be I'm not what I was Was I made to find the answers? (You're here to do what you are told) Was I made to blaze a trail? (Just keep your eyes upon the road Just here to be (So be...) Just here to say (Okay...) Just here to do (What's right...) Just here today What is this that you have made me? (Chorus) I keep my eyes upon the long road (You were made to blaze a trail) I do the things that I was told to (Question everything you've heard) This isn't me That isn't you Cause you're in me And I'm in you I know that this is what you've made of me (Chorus) [x2] Made to be
