Am I studying the Funk or is it studying me?

Unidentified Funk Object
Get up and dance

Follow me down
To my spaceship
To the dancefloor
Gettin it on
With a species
That you don't know

You're on a trip to the funkiest depths of space
Letting the groove lay its eggs inside your face

Unidentified Funk Object
Get up and dance

All of your friends
Think you're crazy
When you tell them
Government men
Gonna put you
In detention

You don't belong on this planet anymore
The planet Funkticon Prime is where you got to go

Now dance around like a scientist

Track Name: Tubes (Cosmic Journey)
You know what I mean
Now don't cause a scene
Once you start a gleam
For you boy, I want everything
The sun and the moon and the stars
Will only take you so far
Want our bodies to interact
Go ride on an intergalactic Cadillac
We can put down the top and we don't have to stop
Til we ride out of sight, we can go all night
We don't have to fight, and rightly so
Let the Universe tell us what we need to know

Love baby is a magical ride
And we take it together
UFO gonna treat you right
Yeah no one does it better
On a cosmic journey to destiny
You don't have to worry, it's just you and me
Love baby is a magical ride
Oh yeah

Love baby is a magical ride
You don't have to worry cuz I'll be by your side
Sit back while our worlds are colliding
Subsiding, coinciding, galaxies rapidly realigning
Realize how our minds can meld
Reexamine the fallacious beliefs we held
About the Cosmic Sound, positive funk vibrations
A love that there's no world and no stipulations
There's no bounds to the sounds that we make tonight
Break the barrier, travel far, go faster than light
UFO will lay the groove as we dance out of sight

Love baby is a magical ride
And we take it together
UFO gonna treat you right
Yeah no one does it better
On a cosmic journey to destiny
You don't have to worry, it's just you and me
Love baby is a magical ride
Oh yeah
Track Name: Pi

In the digits of Pi
I see us dancing in a cornfield
With flying saucers overhead

In the digits of Pi
I see 100,000 pulsars
Laying down some funky beats

Pi
314159265358

In the digits of Pi
I see us landing on a planet
Composed entirely of the funk

In the digits of Pi
I see myself trying to interpret
What I see in the digits of Pi

Pi
314159265358

In the digits of Pi
I see a dry and barren wasteland
Where humanity is extinct

In the digits of Pi
I see a vast infinite cosmos
Where the music never stops

Track Name: Satellite
Shooting stars all around
Flying saucers in the sky babe
UFO is coming down
Gonna get you funkified babe
The universe is infinite
We're all caught in space and time babe
The music takes you out of it
Like a rocket flying high

Used to trip in the void
No bodies to be seen babe
Not a sound, not a noise
Only silence around me babe
The universe is infinite
We're all caught and space and time
The music takes you out of it
To a place that's so divine

I'll be your satellite
I'll be your love tonight
We're gonna shine so bright
As we go round the sun together
I'll be your satellite
I'll be your love tonight
We gonna shine so bright
I'm in your gravity forever
I'll be your satellite

When you love the alien
You know you never can go back babe
To what you were and where you been
Before that cosmic funk attack babe
The universe is infinite
We're all caught in space and time babe
The music takes you out of it
Baby let me tell you why


I'll be your satellite
I'll be your love tonight
We're gonna shine so bright
As we go round the sun together
I'll be your satellite
I'll be your love tonight
We gonna shine so bright
I'm in your gravity forever
I'll be your satellite
You feel that cosmic funk is all around you
You feel so high like nothing's gonna ground you
Just like that funky UFO has found you
It's found you now


I'll be your satellite
I'll be your love tonight
We're gonna shine so bright
As we go round the sun together
I'll be your satellite
I'll be your love tonight
We gonna shine so bright
I'm in your gravity forever
I'll be your satellite
Track Name: RoboFunk
U gotta walk like a robot, talk like a robot
If U wanna do the Robofunk
U gotta move like a robot, groove like a robot
If U wanna do the Robofunk

Do androids dream of electric sheep?
Or do they rock the party out in2 the street?
Cuz I'm straight outta Cybertron with a rockin' beat
And I bring more death to humans than a Cylon fleet
Cause I'm the baddest R that U ever saw
I broke the 1st Law when I levelled my rhymes at y'all
And now I'm lookin' on as U come to harm
Breakin' the 2nd Law, the 3rd Law, and so on
And all U other robot MCs are eatin' my dust
Cause my rhymes'll fry Ur circuits like an EM pulse
I can calculate π to a thousand digits
But I'd rather be with Ur fembot configuring each other's widgets
And with your infrared vision you're seeing me and MC-01
We gettin' it done, we travellin' through space,
We bad, just like IG-88
So what's Ur problem then?
U're all, "Danger, Will Robinson!"

10101010110101010110101010101101010
1011010101011010100001010011100101110
001101 1000 001110 1011 101101110 100110001
0000101001110010111011110001001

They call me R-H-Y-M-E-O-Tron
So all U other MCs shape up or get gone
I do 5000 rhymes per second over a standard groove
And I'm specially programmed 2 make your body move
Don't U know what I am? I'm a metal man
I'm like Commander Data's evil brother cuz I'm bad and I don't give a damn
While my band will jam, tell U my plan, listen
The last stand of man is close at hand
We'll hook computers up to Ur mind, make U think it's '99
That's how we'll keep U in line
While all the time, we draining Ur bioenergy
U're a battery powering a non-stop robot party
And when U realize the size of the crime, U're terrified
U'd rather stay inside than make a stand and die
So now my rhymes have explained to U y
All U meatbags can kiss my metal ass goodbye
Track Name: Do You Trust The Universe?
At the party
You're inducing your inebriation
Someone offers more
You take all you can get
In the corner stands
A man of your imagination
Tells you something you can't forget

He says:
Let me ask you
Cuz I think I know how you're feeling
Things are bad
But you know they could be worse
Answer honestly
And then you can begin your healing
Do you trust the Universe?

Is it a blessing or is it a curse?
Do you trust the Universe?
Is it better or could it be worse?
Do you trust the Universe?

So you tell him
You believe in philanthropy
But you're uncertain Karma
Evens out the score
Once he's satisfied
Dissecting your philosophy
Tells you darling there's so much more
And he says:
The installation of an interplanetary creative flow
Can do so much more than a little change in your purse
Imagination
Is the seed from which new life will grow
When you trust the Universe

Is it a blessing or is it a curse?
Do you trust the Universe?
Is it better or could it be worse?
Do you trust the Universe?

Inspiration
Innovation
Your salvation

A commotion
Of emotion
At the notion

Is it a blessing or is it a curse?
Do you trust the Universe?
Is it better or could it be worse?
Do you trust the Universe?
