"Technologic" is the second single from Daft Punk's third studio album Human After All. It appears as track 9, following "Television Rules the Nation" and preceding "Emotion".

The song contains the electronically pitch-raised voice of Thomas Bangalter, chanting phrases associated with technological pursuits.

It was mixed with Busta Rhymes' "Touch It" for the Alive 2006/2007 tour, later featured in the live album

Lyrics Edit

Buy it, use it, break it, fix it
Trash it, change it, mail - upgrade it
Charge it, point it, zoom it, press it
Snap it, work it, quick - erase it
Write it, cut it, paste it, save it
Load it, check it, quick - rewrite it
Plug it, play it, burn it, rip it
Drag and drop it, zip - unzip it
Lock it, fill it, call it, find it
View it, code it, jam - unlock it
Surf it, scroll it, pause it, click it
Cross it, crack it, switch - update it
Name it, read it, tune it, print it
Scan it, send it, fax - rename it
Touch it, bring it, pay it, watch it
Turn it, leave it, start - format it
