We R Not Micro
Music& Lyrics by Keith “Plex” Barnhart

{“Access memory bank. Sample to transformer module. Execute Digital transfer. Circuits activated. Malfunction- Malfunction- Malfunction- Malfunction!”}

In this world of automation, the wheels of life grind me down
Behind all this machinery, biology has let me down
I slip a “bit” once in a while, but I’m only—human

Feel the walls closing in
We R Not Micro
Find expansion from within
We R So Macro
Bigger’s better we all agree
We R Not Micro

Don’t want to work in a factory
Just wanna’ stay home and watch TV
I sold my house for a box in the sky
I’m getting smaller and I don’t know why

I have a fit once in a while, but I’m only—human

I lose my grip once in a while, but I’m only—human
I been separated from life, but I can see you, feel you.

(alternate chorus)
I can see it in your eyes
We R Not Micro
We will not economize
We R So Macro
Bigger’s better we all agree
We R Not Micro
