about

"You have been recruited by the Star League to defend the Frontier from Xur and the Kodan Armada...."

Written during FAWM 2014

lyrics

My name’s not Alex Rogan
I’m not that guy that you know
I’m the stand-in replacement
So that someone else can go

I’m just a Beta unit
Centauri sent me here
Distracting assassins
While he advanced his career

Then you stuck your tongue in my ear
What you wanted was not that clear

I’m sorry I’m not that kinda bot
What we need is a hero
But I’m all that you got

I’m sorry I’m not that kinda droid
The best I can hope for
Is to be unemployed

So I'm stuck here fixing toilets
And pushing Louis around
While Alex gets a Gunstar
I'm stuck here on the ground

When it comes to kicking Kodan
Alex better not chicken out
Yeah, I could do the fighting
But Betas aren't allowed

We’ve got no time for your gland games
we've got to leave that Zandozan
In flames

I’m sorry I’m not that kinda bot
What we need is a hero
But I’m all that you got

I’m sorry I’m not that kinda droid
The best I can hope for
Is to be unemployed

There's no need to notice me
Did we stop the pulsar tones?
Cause if it's up to Centauri
We’d probably only get trombones

Surprise I'm from the stars
And this hasn't been much fun
Alex wherever you are
You really owe me one
'Cause

I’m not that kind of bot
What we need is a hero
And you’re all that we got

Sorry I’m not that kind of droid
You’re the best we can hope for
And I’m going to be destroyed

Sorry I’m not that kind of bot
What we need is a hero
And you’re all that we got

Sorry I’m not that kind of droid
The best I could hope for
Is to be re-deployed

I'm Sorry
I’m just not that kind of bot
