    You're wondering who I am

    Machine or mannequin
    With parts made in Japan

    I am the Modren Man


    I've got a secret I've been hiding under my skin
    My heart is human, my blood is boiling, my brain I.B.M.
    So if you see me acting strangely, don't be surprised
    I'm just a man who needed someone, and somewhere to hide
    To keep me alive

    Just keep me alive
    Somewhere to hide to keep me alive


    I'm not a robot without emotions

    I'm not what you see
    I've come to help you with your problems, so we can be free
    I'm not a Hero, I'm not a Savior, forget what you know
    I'm just a man whose circumstances went beyond his control
    Beyond my control; we all need control
    I need control;we all need control


    I am the Modren Man, who hides behind a mask
    So no one else can see my true identity

    Domo Arigato, Mr. Roboto, Domo...Domo


    Thank you very much, Mr. Roboto
    For doing the jobs that nobody wants to
    And thank you very much, Mr. Roboto
    For helping me escape just when I needed to
    Thank you--Thank you, Thank you
    I want to thank you, please, thank you


    The problem's plain to see: Too much Technology
    Machine to save our lives. Machines de-humanize


    The time has come at last
    To throw away this mask
    So everyone can see
    My true identity...
    I'm Kilroy!

    The word "modren" (spelled with the 'r' shown reversed, or mirrored) surfaced in the 1950's as a way to describe contemporary experimental jazz music. The term "modern" was being used at the time describing pop music, such as Elvis and others that formed the foundation for rock and roll music. Jazz musicians needed a word to describe their music--something more modern than modern. Current use of the word is to describe something that is ahead of its time.
