Can we humanize a piece of machinery?
One that responds to all out needs
And understands our complexities and necessities
Will it benefit you and me, or all of society?
Can it respond to human emotion?
Will it walk, talk, and speak with human motions?
Can it be fooled by variation?
We’re in the age of technology, it’s plain to see
Changes increasing in frequency, almost daily
The level of connectivity rising exponentially
An invisible web of shared electricity
Invading the life of each human being
A paradigm shift is what we’re seeing
Everything seems useful for the time being
Designers building robots to look like people
Analyze, desensitize, until we think they’re equal
Initialized the story-line that robots won’t have free will
While on the other side of the fence, artificial intelligence
The line between correctness and wretchedness
Computerized comprehension and memory retention
Pushing the limitations of modern conventions
Voice modulation for effective communication
Calculations beyond expectations; short-lived jubilation
With AI planning, building, and problem solving
Scientific planning; absorbing, involving, resolving
Compiling and learning with few limitations
With no oversight from nations or corporations
Will humankind come to regret their creations?
Caution rising from the population
Alarm bells screaming potential danger
Why are we replacing men with machines?
What does it mean; are we influencing our destiny?
Internal strife and determinations about these creations
Will the human race end up slated for extinction?
Friction over recognizing the potential contradictions
Imagining Dystopian visions painting future civilizations
Where humankind degrades until near cessation
Under robot masters and their superiority
Realizing human programmers are no longer necessary
The needs of man become secondary; our obituary
When robots cross the threshold of self-awareness
Humans helpless against their rebellious tempest
