Artificial Man

	  		Intro:  C Em/B Gm/Bb A7 Dm Dm/C G/B 

  E7      Am         Am/G 
I can't believe it's happening  
F              Fm                  C   Em/B Gm/Bb A7  
I just want to stay the way that I am. 
Dm              G          Dm       G       C 
I don't want to live a lie in an artificial world.  
         
      C            Em/B 
Let's build an antiseptic world,  
Gm/Bb    A7 
Full of artificial people.  
Dm                 Dm/C 
Cure all diseases, conquer pain  
    G/B 
And monitor the human brain,  
    E7                       Am          /G 
And see what thoughts you're thinking.  
  F                    Fm 
Observe your feelings, Secret fears,  
                                   C   Em/B 
Controlling everything you say and do  
Gm/Bb  A7 
Oo oo o 
    Dm              G 
And we will build a master race  
   Dm              G          C F G,C F G 
To live within our artificial world.  

G7 
Tell it to the people all across the land,  
                                   C 
We're going to build an artificial man  
C          F          F G C          F          F G  
artificial artificial man artificial artificial man 

G7 
With the physique of a Tarzan  
And the profile of a Cary Grant,  
                                 C 
A superior being Totally made by hand.  
C          F          F G C          F          F G  
artificial artificial man artificial artificial man 
G7 
Throw out imperfection,  
Mould you section by section,  
                                C 
Gonna make you the ultimate creation.  
C          F          F G C          F          F G  
artificial artificial man artificial artificial man 
F      Am/E 
I can visualise the day  
Dm       Dm/C             Bb      Bb/A   Gm     Gm/F 
When the world will be controlled by artificial people,  
    C       Em/B           Am        C/G        F          Bb   C    F  
But I don't want to live a lie in an artificial world.  

Gm                     F 
Tell the world that we finally did it,  
Gm                  F 
Made a man that's totally programmed,  
Gm             F 
Preconditioned thoughts and emotions,  
Gm                     F 
Push-button artificial man.  

Did you ever want to live forever?  
Well here's your chance to be a total automaton  
'Cos we've improved on God's creation  
An outdated homo sapien.  
Gm                  F 

G7  C   G7 C 

artificial artificial man artificial artificial man 
Make you taller if you want it  
Make your hair grow longer if you need it.  
If it doesn't exist then I guess we can breed it.  
artificial artificial man artificial artificial man 
There'll be no disagreements,  
We'll dedicate our lives to achievements,  
And organise your life and keep it totally planned.  
artificial artificial man artificial artificial man 

I can visualise the day  
When the world will be controlled by artificial people,  
But I don't want to live a lie in an artificial world.  

Tell the world we finally did it.  
Modified the population,  
Put your senses and your mind  
Under constant observation  
Even when you're dreaming.  
Replaced your nose, heart and lungs,  
So shake me with your artificial hand.  
We went and built a master race  
To live within our artificial world.
