[Riff 5] x4 w/ lyrics:

        One humanoid escapee, one android on the run,
Seeking freedom beneath a lonely desert sun, [repl. end of Riff 5 w/ Riff 2]
try'n' to change its program trying to change the mode, crack the code.
Images conflicting into data overload. [replace end of Riff 5 /w Riff 2]

One, zero, zero, one, zero, zero, one, S. O. S.
One, zero, zero, one, zero, zero, one, in distress.

[Riff 5] x4 w/ lyrics:

        Memory banks unloading, bytes break into bits.
Unit One's in trouble, and it's scared out of its wits. [as above]
        Guidance systems breakdown, a struggle to exist, to resist.
A pulse of dying power in a clenching plastic fist. [Riff 2 end as above]

One, zero, zero, one, zero, zero, one, S. O. S.
One, zero, zero, one, zero, zero, one, in distress.

[Riff 6] x2

[Riff 7] x2 /w lyrics:

It replays each of the days, a hundred years of routines,
Bows its head and prays to the mother of all machines, all machines.
