"Silver Future" as written by and David Wyndorf....
Hey little cookie take a walk my way
I like to hear what you have to say

You know the truth
And you're so put together
Baby I could stick you on the lip of forever
Even a volcano has a price to pay

What kinda creature do we have here
It feels like love, but it smells like fear

Look in the mirror, baby, what do you dream
Look at it harder now and you start to scream
We're finding out what drives your machine

You stand
On the edge of a silver future
You stand
On the edge of a silver future

Hey, no
We don't let go
We all need a daddy
Hey, no
We don't let go
We all need a daddy
Hey, no
We don't let go
We all need a daddy
Hey, no
We don't let go
We all need a daddy

Live in the mirror, baby, you are the dream
You smash that fucker now and you'll get so clean
Come on and show me what drives your machine

Hey, no
We don't let go
We all need a daddy
Hey, no
We don't let go
We all need a daddy
Hey, no
We don't let go
We all need a daddy
Hey, no
We don't let go
We all need a daddy

You stand
On the edge of a silver future
You stand
On the edge of a silver future
You stand
On the edge of a silver future
You stand
On the edge of a silver future

Hey, no
We don't let go
We all need a daddy
Hey, no
We don't let go
We all need a daddy
Hey, no
We don't let go
We all need a daddy
Hey, no
We don't let go
We all need a daddy
Hey, no
We don't let go
We all need a daddy
Hey, no
We don't let go
We all need a daddy
Hey, no
We don't let go
We all need a daddy
Hey, no
We don't let go
We all need a daddy

    General CommentWhenever I hear this song, I think it's about child molesting or a girl abusive father or something like that.

    The way for the girl to stop her pain would be to run away or kill her father. But she can't bring herself to do that for the simple fact that it is her father.

    General CommentOr possibly

    A relationship that is one sided, in which one side is afraid of the other, even tho, on the outside it looks like love.

    General CommentPersonally this song makes me think of a psycho. "Hey little cookie walk my way" is the psycho looking at his victim, Silver Future represents what he is going to do and how he is describing it as being something glorius and beautiful. The rest is the insane logic of someone who is contemplating murder.

    General CommentI found this song was really depressing in the beginning, and when i first heard it a was also a little depressed and i related to it but then towards the end it sort of becomes angry and it makes me feel like go out and getting over my problems - But i have no idea what any of the lyrics mean...

    General Commenti think the mirror represtents one of 2 things, cocaine (scream when she becomes an addict i suppose, perhaps shes a cokehead and hes telling her not to let go that she can beat it in a silver future), and through the looking glass (dream), but im probably looking too far into it

    General CommentI care to answer. Silver future means getting old. not only young girls are called baby. I mean it, take it into consideration when listening to other MM songs. I also could have written a song like this to my father. It feels like love, but it smells like fear. A father fearing his own child. father don't really care to speak to the child (come on and tell me) Familiar. Mirror, man, it's a twisted picture of a father and a child facing each other through the mirror. and a bit more. these are so lively pictures, i could even see them as i write this. And the word of the title, future relates in such an unmistakable way for a song conception of time. we all need a daddy. man, everyone has a daddy. not some girlabuser wyndorf talks about. if you don't beleive this, ask the author himself. and i'm not even a native speaker.
