Voices come from down the hall
In my room all painted white
I have my bat and rubber ball
I like to sleep with them at night

But now I'm all smiles
The good little shots must be winning
Yes, they crank my dial
My motor is stalled but my wheels are still spinning

Daddy won't discuss me
What a state I must be
Mommy couldn't stand
Living with a wind-up toy

All my friends live on the floor
Tiny legs and tiny eyes
They're free to crawl under the door
And someday soon, so will I

But now I'm all smiles
These good little shocks must be working
I'm so happy now (I'm so happy)
Look, my fingers don't shake and my head isn't jerking

Daddy won't discuss me
What a pain I must be
Mommy couldn't stand
Having such a wound-up boy
Doctors want to check me
Poke me and dissect me
What do they expect?
Feelings from a wind-up toy? (I don't think so)
I'm just a wind-up toy
Wind-up toy

I'm lost in a nightmare
Shiny white hall drawing rats on the wall
Solitary confinement
Chained in a cell, got my own private Hell

Preacher crucifies me
Warden wants to fry me
I was never young
Never just a little boy
Daddy won't discuss me
What a pain I must be
Mommy couldn't stand
Having such a wound-up boy

I'm just a wind-up toy
Wind-up toy
I'm just a wind-up toy
Wind-up, wind-up…

I'm just a wind-up toy
Wind-up toy, yeah

(Daddy won't discuss me)
I'm just a wind-up…
(What a pain I must be)
Yeah, just a wind-up…
(Mommy couldn't stand
Having such a wound-up boy)

Daddy won't discuss me
What a pain I must be
Mommy couldn't stand
Having such a wound-up boy
