"Small Metal Gods" as written by and Christian Fennesz Werner Dafeldecker....
It's the farthest place I've ever been,
it's a new frontier for me

And you balance things like you wouldn't believe
when you should just let things be

Yes, you juggle things cause you can't lose sight
of the wretched story line
it's the narrative that must go on
until the end of time

And you're guilty of some self-neglect
and the mind unravels for days

I've told you once
yes, a thousand times
I'm better off this way
I'm better off
this way

Where's my queen of hearts, my royal flush
I have cleaned and scrubbed her decks
a suicide, my better days
there's nothing I regret

I've placed the gods in a zip-lock bag
I've put them in a drawer

They've refused my prayers for the umpteenth time
so I'm evening up the score
small metal gods from a casting line
from a factory in Mumbai

Some manual labourer's bread and butter
and a single-minded life

Small metal gods, cheap souvenirs
you've abandoned me for sure
I'm dumping you my childish things
I'm evening up the score
