function x ($var1, $var2) {Running diagnostics. I am a robot, I am difficult I was built to understand But I only comprehend that which no one else does My thoughts are inventions I do not know how to think for myself You have my divided attention I have detected a bug in the system: I cause problems when I speak Sometimes I might need substantial extra time So I can determine and process what I was given Give me a flower or a gun; I will finish the task My blood stains the streets where you live In your name, my blood stains I am just a robot, I am difficult Reprogram me and show me the world I will laugh from the depths of my core and pretend to understand Before I shut down.
