In response to my recent article, “Schools as Black-Holes,” Michael Belkin sent me the lyrics to a song performed by his Seattle-based band The Refusers  (reportedly the number 2 ranked band in thet city) titled “Robot Factory.”

Robot Factory (by The Refusers)
They taught me to read and they taught me to write But the classes were boring and the textbooks weren’t right I found out later it was only routine That’s how you make a human machine

It’s a robot factory robot factory robot factory just a robot  factory Don’t wanna go I don’t wanna go back I’ll never go back to that robot factory  The creme of the crop rise to the top And those in the middle play second fiddle And those at the bottom that are way way down Get made into sprockets that go round and round

 It’s a robot factory robot factory robot factory just a robot factory Don’t wanna go I don’t wanna go back I’ll never go back to that robot factory

If you want to break free of being a machine Unplug your cord, reprogram your board Ignorance is slavery. Liberate your mind and you will be free It’s a robot factory robot factory robot factory just a robot  factory Don’t wanna go I don’t wanna go back I’ll never go back to that robot factory.

Those who would like to hear this song will find it (as song number 5) at the following site:
