We're in the building  Where they make us grow
And I'm frightened by
The liquid engineers
Like you. 

My Mallory 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
I could learn to be a man
Like you. 

Plug me in
And turn me on
Oh 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 
Aren't you 

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