Last week I left a note on Laura's desk It said I love you, signed, anonymous friend Turns out she's smarter than I thought she was She knows I wrote it, now the whole class does too And I'm all alone during couple skate When she skates by with some guy on her arm But I know that I'll forget the look of pity in her face When I'm living in my solar dome on a platform in space

'Cause it's gonna be the future soon And I won't always be this way When the things that make me weak and strange get engineered away It's gonna be the future soon I've never seen it quite so clear And when my heart is breaking I can close my eyes and it's already here

I'll probably be some kind of scientist Building inventions in my space lab in space I'll end world hunger, I'll make dolphins speak Work through the daytime, spend my nights and weekends Perfecting my warrior robot race Building them one laser gun at a time I will do my best to teach them About life and what it's worth I just hope that I can keep them from destroying the Earth

'Cause it's gonna be the future soon And I won't always be this way When the things that make me weak and strange get engineered away It's gonna be the future soon I've never seen it quite so clear And when my heart is breaking I can close my eyes and it's already

Here on Earth they'll wonder As I piece by piece replace myself And the steel and circuits will make me whole But I'll still feel so alone Until Laura calls me home

I'll see her standing by the monorail She'll look the same except for bionic eyes She lost the real ones in the robot wars I'll say I'm sorry, she'll say it's not your fault Or is it? She'll eye me suspiciously Hearing the whir of the servos inside And she'll scream and try to run But there's nowhere she can hide When a crazy cyborg wants to make you his robot bride

Well it's gonna be the future soon And I won't always be this way When the things that make me weak and strange get engineered away It's gonna be the future soon I've never seen it quite so clear And when my heart is breaking I can close my eyes and it's already here.
