This song deals with Artificial Intelligence, or AI. It is sung as a eulogy for a robot that killed himself - "Last night something pretty bad happened, we lost a friend." The being had been created with the ability to perform human actions and think freely. Over the years, the creators stopped paying attention to Jed and the robot "found their booze" while they were away at a convention. He drank it all, hence killing himself.
