"Prototype" as written by Adriel Alan Garcia, Elliott Marsh Sharp, Steve Miloszewski and John Leslie Whitney....
I made her from pieces of stars
The ones that fell when you shot through
A sky that burned not to return
No other element would do

Her soul was grown in the bathroom
Her heart is just a red balloon
I gave her lips from wild orchids
When she came out of the cocoon

Not the real thing
Not the real thing
Not the real thing

I can barely see the sun
Now it's blue
I can barely see the sun
Because she kisses like a prototype

I programmed her with eye color
Majestic emerald green
Uploaded with your attitude
She will do it like a machine

But no matter how hard I've tried
She never smiles unless she's high
And just like you
Won't ever stop crying

Not the real thing
Not the real thing
Not the real thing

I can barely see the sun
Now it's blue
I can barely see the sun
Because she kisses like a prototype
Kisses like a prototype of you

Please come back and rescue me from the machines
And I'll be wondering why you do it with somebody else
Please come back and rescue me
And I'll be wandering while you do it with somebody else

Not the real thing
Not the real thing
Not the real thing

I can barely see the sun
Now it's blue
I can barely see the sun
She's a prototype of you

I can barely see the sun
Now it's blue
I can barely see the sun
Because she kisses like a prototype
Kisses like a prototype

    General CommentAfter you date somebody that you are really into, possibly love, you hold the following girls up to those standards, they have to have those "wild orchid lips"
    He "designed" (hand picked) this girl so that she was physically as close to perfect (his love) as he could get
    BUT

    Its not good enough, shes a stoner and depressed, passionless.

    He realizes that this girl is merely a prototype of his old girfriend, that he hasn't found better, he has gone back a step

    and wants to be with his former love, or girl who is on par or above her
