An unstoppable gunslinger, created to rid the world of outlaws, seeks redemption for his violent past by putting women on a pedestal. It works about as well as you'd expect.

lyrics

In the West is a Robot
lyrics by Aaron Levitz
music by The Velveteen

Sunrise across the prairie,
the robot rides into town.
Justice is arbitrary.
Some villain’s going down.

In the west is a robot whose dusty heart is broken.
In the west is a robot whose dusty heart is powering down.

Out west is a robot!
Out west!
Out west is a robot!

He tours across the county.
He lures them to their death.
He picks up every bounty.
He never stops for breath.

He’s starting to feel empty.
Is there no more to life?
You need to settle, robot.
You need to find a wife.

In the west is a robot whose dusty heart is broken.
In the west is a robot whose dusty heart is powering down.

In the west is a robot whose dusty heart is broken.
In the west is a robot whose dusty heart is powering… powering down.

(instrumental break)

His thoughts run unrestrained.
The gears are turning.
True love must be obtained
to quell this yearning.

He pledged true devotion
if she would make him whole.
She said he lacked emotion.
She laughed — he lacked a soul.

In the west is a robot whose dusty heart is broken.
In the west is a robot whose dusty heart is powering down.

In the west is a robot whose dusty heart is broken.
In the west is a robot whose dusty heart is powering down.

Out west is a robot!
Out west!
Out west is a robot!

Out west is a robot!
Out west is a robot!
Out west is a robot!
Out west!
