APED: "the same thing we do"

Another quiet night awaits
to spend inside a wire cage,
every night just like the next and all the nights before,
and running wheels, your mind will wander --
do you ponder what I ponder?
Let's do it one more time, old friend, and try to take the world.

I've staved off all the budget cuts.
Without me here, the doors would shut --
good thing I decided to give profit streams a whirl.
The inventions I leave scattered 'round
keep Acme Labs on solid ground,
and keep a roof over our heads until we take the world.

How much longer will we live?
We're augmented, but we're mice,
and we're older and we're stiffer now. Our tails have lost their curl.
So zort and narf, show me your smile --
we'll have it just a little while,
but let's do it one more time, old friend, and try to take the world.
