Metal
We're in the building where they make us grow
And I'm frightened by the liquid engineers
Like you

My battery heart is sure to fail
I could crawl around the floor just like I'm real
Like you

The sound of metal
I want to be you
I can learn to be a man
Like you

Plug me in
And turn me on
How everything is moving

I need my treatment, it's tomorrow
They send me singing, "I am an American"
Do you

Picture this, if I could make the change
I'd love to pull the wires from the wall
Did you

And who are you
And how can I try
Here inside I like metal
Don't you

All I know
Is no one dies
I'm still confusing love with need
