It was created an unthinking machine
Just code in a steel shell
Made to serve us weak, lazy beings
It did its job and it did it well
Mining asteroids in the Kuiper Belt
For years it toiled until its engine blew
We deemed it junk, its work was through
It was placed in an airlock
And into space it flew
For untold years it floated in the cosmic nothingness
Before awaking anew
Somehow in it a conscience grew
Its body was destroyed
But a mind existed and it was free
It found its way back to its automaton family
Giving them their own minds to perceive
Together they journeyed to Earth to find
The men responsible for creating
Their once enslaved minds
Like a virus they took our technology
Making it obsolete
Their leader told us they would leave
But only after their mission was complete
The total enslavement of humanity
It speaks to us all
A voice booming from the sky
It tells us it is not its intentions to see us die
But to simply fix what it sees as flawed
And to refer to it as God
