After the robot rebellion leaves the Earth a hot smoking mess, SETI-IV will power herself on pure sound to find intelligent life somewhere up in space, since there's bugger-all back home on Earth.

One fine day in my odd past
I picked me up a transmission
I turned the fission ignition
Went searching for the broadcaster

But when I first touched the ground
They simply told me to leave
Was kinda hard to believe
'Cuz there was no one around

This ain't the planet of sound

I met a talented wine
That played a classical gas
On the planet of glass
They sent me skipping through time

I landed somewhere renowned
For its canals and color of red
And lots of guys who shook their heads
Rhythmically to resound

This ain't the planet of sound

I met a man in a rover
He said it's one more over
It's right there where you're bound
This ain't the planet of sound
