Robot Boy is a song from A Thousand Suns. The song is symphonic and has a dream like quality. It leads into Jornada Del Muerto. The two songs are the most progressive on the album. Currently Robot Boy is the only song from A Thousand Suns to have never been played live. It is worth noting that the chord progression is similar to, if not exactly the same as, that of "Hey Joe" by Jimi Hendrix.

LyricsEdit

You say / you're not gonna fight / 'cause no one will fight for you
And you think / there's not enough love / and no one to give it to
And you're sure / you've hurt for so long / you've got nothing left to lose
So you say / you're not gonna fight / 'cause no one will fight for you

You say / the weight of the world / has kept you from letting go
And you think / compassion's a flaw / and you'll never let it show
And you're sure / you've hurt in a way / that no one will ever know
But someday / the weight of the world / will give you the strength to go

Hold on / the weight of the world / will give you the strength to go
So hold on / the weight of the world / will give you the strength to go
So hold on / the weight of the world / will give you the strength to go
Just hold on / the weight of your world / will give you the strength to go

Demo VersionEdit

The demo version is almost exactly like the finalized version, but there are some different lyrics and vocals are changed up a little.

Demo LyricsEdit

You say you're not gonna fight cause no one will fight for you
Cause you think there's not enough love and no one to give it to
And you say that faith is a lie and fear is your only truth
And you're sure that everyone else is feeling the way you do
You say you've hurt for so long that pain isn't something new
But don't think the things that they've done predict what you're going to do
The truth is that trust is a gift it's something we all can lose
So hold on, it's not where it goes, it's where it can lead you to
Hold on, It's not where it goes it's where it can lead you to
Hold on, It's not where it goes it's where it can lead you to
Hold on, It's not where it goes it's where it can lead you to
Hold on, It's not where it goes it's where it can lead you to
Hold on, It's not where it goes it's where it can lead you to

LPU 11 with Mike ShinodaEdit

"Chester and I liked this arrangement of the vocals, but some of the other guys wanted us to take another stab at them. So this version went away.. I never minded this version."
