Click song titles with ** for MP3

Joey was born in 1979 **

Joey was born in 1979, a mechanical boy
Tiny as a rubber band; he looks like a toy
He could not poop or peep or sit or eat or move his feet
He lay there in a heap; he was not like other boys!

Joey was born in 1979, half-mechanized
The Son of Dark Technology,
a machine controls his mind
To walk, to sleep, to laugh, to weep
he needs the dark force field
To guide his hand, to understand,
to the Dark Force he must yield!

The mind is a dark space; emptiness
The basic things, the wires and strings
will keep me in my place
Don’t fall over, don’t look down;
won’t think, won’t cry, won’t laugh or frown
I don’t know my way around!

I heard the voice; it said: Joey!
It tells me things, it laughs and sings
The Dark Force from below!

I AM THE DARK TECHNICAL FORCE, JOEY
I AM THE GREAT TECHNOLOGY IN CHARGE OF LIFELESS THINGS
MY TELEMETRIC SIGNALS WILL OPERATE YOU FROM NOW ON
WITH RADIO WAVES, SATELLITES, OUTLET PLUGS AND INVISIBLE STRINGS!

Joey was born in 1979, half-mechanized
The son of dark technology, amachine controls his mind!

 

Dark Technology Reigns

This machine of mind is not kind or unkind
It tells me what to do
Spy on my neighbors, wash the cash
Take this package down to the trash

I’m a probe! I do as I’m told
Dark Technology reigns!

There is higher force that doesn’t deal with people
It’s for organisms like me, without organs, organisms that can’t work on their own
For mechanical people and appliances and other higher order life forms
Like radios, computers, and automobiles

I look normal but I’m a slave
Artificial molecules in my brain
We got hold of the weak and the bold
I’m a probe! I do as I’m told
Dark Technology reigns!

We are improved and new; we advance and we proceed
We are the mouthpiece of an engineered force the likes of which you have never seen before
This remote influence often gets us into trouble here on earth
We do not understand it’s benighted technology
People here think we are quite crazy

Dark Technology reigns!


Electric Papoose
I asked the D.T.F., "Can I be my own machine?"
I'll still obey you and your technology

He said when I grow up I can be a video game
Everyone on earth will know my name

First he said you must obey these simple rules
Because you won’t grow up until 2032

1. The color is yellow
2. Never turn off the carbuerator or you won’t be able to breath
3. Do not suck, Joey! It will kill you
4. Always wear these light bulbs around your arms and legs so that you can move around

You like to move around don’t you, Joey?

I’m an electric papoose enclosed in empty space
Operated by signals; a machine controls my brain
I can’t think of anything else; this takes all my time
But sometimes I wonder. . .why


They Dark Force is on its Way
The dark force is on his way
He will take you to his place
That’s place where all machines live
There are no people there

No bodies that easily break
No emotions to fake

It’s time you all cleared the room
Because the machine is more powerful than you
You will be swept away
Unless you’re a table or a chair

The dark force is on his way
He will take you to his place
That’s the place where all machines live
There are no people there
