Mouth is made of metal, metal, metal
Pocket full of yellow, yellow
Pocket full of gold
And I hope you find
I hope you find your dream, yeah...

(yea) And what did you say back to me?
Dreaming, old maybach cruising
Maybe talking crazy, but I want it
A hundred thousand ways to choose it
Who the hell is out and who's in?
Trouble, maybe I'm too subtle

Mouth made of metal, metal, metal
Pocket full of yellow, yellow
Pocket full of gold
And I hope you find
I hope you find your dream
And darling never settle, settle, settle
Chasing down the devil, devil
Chasing down the gods
And I hope you find
I hope you find your dream

I'm living like a silent movie
Shut your mouth and see straight through me
Finding that you're hiding in your money (money, m-m-money)
I got a million ways to lose it
But nothing in my life worth proving
Chasing, all my time is wasted

Mouth is made of metal, metal, metal
Pocket full of yellow, yellow
Pocket full of gold
And I hope you find
I hope you find your dream
And darling never settle, settle, settle
Chasing down the devil, devil
Chasing down the gods
And I hope you find
I hope you find your dream

It's the push and the pull
It's the rise and the fall
I don't owe you a single thing
I don't owe you anything
It's the push and the pull
It's the big and the small
I don't owe you a single thing
Not a god damn thing

My mouth is made of metal, metal, metal
Pocket full of yellow, yellow
Pocket full of gold
And I hope you find
I hope you find your dream
And darling never settle, settle, settle
Chasing down the devil, devil
Chasing down the god
And I hope you find
I hope you found your dream

My mouth is made of metal, metal, metal
Pocket full of yellow, yellow
Pocket full of gold
And I hope you find
I hope you find your dream (I don't owe you anything)
And darling never settle, settle, settle
Chasing down the devil, devil
Chasing down the gods
And I hope you found
I hope you find your dream (I don't owe you anything)

I hope you find your dream

    My InterpretationThis song is about the regrets of an individual, a byproduct of their slothful habits and arrogance.

    "Mouth is made of metal" juxtaposed to the line "Pocket full of gold" points to the "All talk, no walk" problematic habit that lazy yet prideful people have. A metal mouth - a mouth that is skilled with words to paint appealing pictures, mostly lies, either to others who have expectations for you or lies towards yourself. It is a reference to self denial. Because one does not act and never attempts to use their potential, their "pockets are filled with gold," symbolic for the ultimate resource, personal potential, that is never used to the full. At least, in the beginning, "Hope you find your dreams" is a satirical remark that with such a horrid mentality, personality, and habit, one will never find contentment nor success.

    "What did you say back to me," is a statement portraying defiance and arrogance against any opposition. This may be a description of an individual when they are young and rebellious, when they feel overwhelming confidence. Despite their confidence, they dream of materialistic, hedonistic pleasures that die off quick - the "Maybach." (The Maybach is a type of luxury car). It is implied that this pleasure also shows laziness in this individual as their ultimate goal, their dream is to "cruise," to live a life of ease. "A hundred thousand ways of choosing" can point to the individual starting to realise that he isn't always right, that there are many paths towards success. As a result, they start to sense "trouble" because of their flawed logic, and feel they are "too subtle," or insignificant. Their sense of arrogance from before starts to break down, resulting in insecurities and doubts.

    In addition to the interpretation provided in the beginning, "I would never settle" would point to the lack of contentment the individual constantly experiences because of the hedonistic pleasures they constantly pursue. They have indulged in a meaningless life that has no purpose nor possibility of fulfillment. "Chasing down the Devil and the God" may imply the idea of chasing the wind, the individual constantly tries to find fulfillment in materialistic goals that will ultimately never get them anywhere.

    The silent movie highlights how the individual feels as if their life has lost its colors and sounds. As their pride and sense of self starts to fade, life has now become dull and unappealing. "Shut your mouth and see straight through me," is an internal cry for help as the individual starts to feel ignored because of their insecurity of feeling insignificant. They want others to recognize the pain they feel instead of having to hear others keep talking about matters the individual couldn't care less about. The individual loses their naivety and sees how corrupt the world is as they see people "hiding in their money," feeding off of injustice and corruption. They find out that as many ways as there are to succeed, life is frightening because there are also "a million ways of losing." They notice also that they are going down the path of failure as they notice their life lacks purpose as it has "nothing worth proving." (Subtle has now escalated into absolute insignificance). They kept on wasting their time on temporary pleasures or became too greedy or obsessed with ideas that can't be chased such as "the Devil and God."

    The contrasting words that are lined with each other is all about life and its extreme fluctuation. The individual has felt happiness and despair repeatedly. They gain something they desire, something materialistic and superficial, only to have that happiness taken away as they realise that they have yet again failed to accomplish what they have wanted to achieve, something with purpose and fulfillment. However, at this point, the individual realizes through the ups and downs, the big and the small, the push and the pull of life what they truly need to do to achieve fulfillment. They look back on all the materialism that lead them astray, They look back on their past self and figure out that they no longer need the past mentality they used to have nor the accomplishments of the past. They "do not owe a single thing" to their past self and start a new.

    In the end, when it is sung, "I hope you find your dream," this may be something that the artist left as ambiguous. It may be a hopeful message that the individual has finally been saved from their life long grief, that they have finally found the ways they needed to stay on their feet. They have abandoned their prideful, slothful, and detrimental habits. In contrast, it could be a satirical message that even if one succeeds now, they can still fail later on and possibly even fall into a worse pit hole.

    General CommentThe chorus makes me think of braces. "Mouth is made of metal". Also they are expensive, hence "pocket full of yellow- gold". The verses of the song don't really have much to do with braces.

    My OpinionIt has a very catchy hook to it and does make a very good jingle song for a Cadillac commercial. Other than that, the words and the rest of it truly are terrible.
