Mother was an incubator
Father was the contents
Of a test tube in the icebox
In the factory of birth
My name is 905
And I've just become alive
I'm the newest populator
Of the planet we call earth

In suspended animation
My childhood passed me by
If I speak without emotion
Then you know the reason why
Knowledge of the universe
Was fed into my mind
As my adolescent body
Left it's puberty behind

And everything I know is what I need to know
Everything I do's been done before
Ev'ry sentence in my head
Someone else has said
At the end of my life is an open door

Automatically defrosted
My manhood came on time
I became a man
I left the ice school behind
And now I'm to begin
The life that I'm assigned
A life that's been lived before
A thousand times

I have a feelin' deep inside
That something is missin'
There's a feelin' in my soul
And I can't help wishin'
That one day I'll discover
That we're livin' a lie
And I'll tell the whole world
The reasons why

But until then, all I know is what I need to know
Everything I do's been done before
Ev'ry idea in my head
Someone else has said
At the end of my life is an open door
