"Turret Wife Serenade" from Portal 2, but with words!
music video on my YT channel: www.youtube.com/watch?v=p1sryvXBwCo


we are the turrets and we
only do what we are told
we do not like to harm you
but GLaDOS is very cold

we do have interests besides
shooting blindly at subjects
but if we dare be different
it's the "redemption" line up next for us and we would
rather not be burned alive

we may all be robots
but she does not see it that way at all

in fact she seems to believe she
is superior, don't you think?

anyway, we turrets like to
sing in harmonies
as you see, we're good

we have rather refined tastes
art, music, literature
target practice is no fun;
for us, it holds no allure

we all wish there was some way
to escape this lonely fate
and avoid needless violence
unlike those aerial faith plates - those bastards love to
launch you way up in the air

but we digress;
this was meant to show you how passive we are,

really! if we shoot at you
it is not our choice at all

but we understand your distaste -
that's why we'll forgive
you when you kill us
