I have no clue what movie its from. I just found on www.bingeandgrab.com , this awesome website about everyhting Buckethead. Some sort of icon representing Giant Robot, I would assume.
The river is moving. The blackbird must be flying.

its from an old Chinese monster movie.  the giant robot only responded to commands from this little asian kid who was the first to talk into the controller (a watch).  anyway the kid directs the robot to fight various monsters that pop up to threaten civilization throughout the movie. I think in the end the robot flies into space with some doomsday device saving the world and making his little friend very sad :'(

Beat on beat on beat on

Over and over

It comes after "the fact that my hearts beating is all the proof you need"

Sounds like he may be connecting "beat on" with "and"...sounds like "beat on and beat on and beat on..."   Either that or he is just making "on" a two syllable word.

He's saying Levon, as a tribute, over and over...
If you don't know for yourself, how could you ever know for me....

I like to go with "We are who we are..... we are who we are.....correct.  correct. yeahhhhhh."  Does anyone else hear that?

Come Closer

I think he's saying, "I am the zodiac."
