I am lost I can't even remember my name

from Daft Punk – Within Lyrics on Rap Genius


Recurrent subject in this album, like in Fragments of Time, hardly recognizing their own face, this can be read as a reference to their pseudonymity: how much of Thomas Bangalter (resp. Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo) is remembered by silver (resp. gold) robot?

Identity is a recurring thematic of Daft Punk (see Interstella 5555 about the brainwashing effect of the Star System on musicians and how they forget from where they’re coming…).

“Ralph & Kathy” by fellow French house artist Alex Gopher is a very similarly worded robotic existential crisis song. Daft Punk are making a slight nod to one of their contemporaries here.
