Tinker tinker tinker - pling pling - ding
My body breaks - the void screams
Weary of hollow metals
That ring of hollow life
By hand and by hammer
I give birth tonight
Metals bend and metals scream
Welding bright the circuit seam
Weary of the hollow spaces
Between the twinkling lights
I lost something along the way
And it doesn't feel right

Maybe I"m not
Falling apart but I'm falling a lot
Maybe I'm not
Completely circuitry but I can't stop

I"m gonna fall apart!!!
I"m gonna fall apart!!!

Coming close I'm coming closer
Yet maybe I'm not
I can make you a sex machine
That would be hot
Break my nails and pull my hair
There's circuit boards everywhere
How long have I been in here
This is not my house

Maybe I'm not
Falling apart but I'm falling a lot
Maybe I'm not
Completely circuitry but I can't stop

I"m not a robot but I've got a mechanical hand
I can steal the stars and put them back again
Once upon a time - I had a broken heart
Once upon a time - I just had a heart
I limped when I was wounded - so I replaced my parts
Once upon a time I had a heart

I'm not a robot but I've got a mechanical hand
I can steal the stars and put them back again
If I am a machine because of my hand made heart
Why do I dream I'm a dinosaur tearing sheep apart

Fill me up - it tells me where to go
Colors me and changes me
It withers me to coal
Tears me up - leaves me smoldering
I close my eyes and her voice
Framed by vultures wings

In the wires of my hand I see my fate
Cold and mechanical squeaky with hate
It clicks whirls and is satisfied
It's designed to fill that black hole deep inside
Is turning away from the path of soft skin
To a path of mechanical sin
Turning away from the warmth of gold
To an empty machine that's broken and cold

Click click click hollow rooms always consume
Click click click dark and empty like most of the moon
Click click click the things we do in the name of love
Click click click secret machines and a rusty glove

Sleep well mechanical thing
You were fun for a while
But now I'm going going going
To go
Get a burrito

    General Comment^wrong

    they scoff at fans who always immediately assume their songs are related to nintendo. the 3 songs that are (cutsman, pols voice, and birdo), are just metaphors.

    General CommentThis song is about a boy/girl who has been hurt in the past by the oposit sex. They arent really robots but he is becomming a robot in his emotions. Shuting is emotions off. "Limped when i was wounded so i replaced my parts" is just saying when i get hurt, i just fix the problem so why cant i do that with my feelings? At the end he realizes he dosnt need to worryu about her and dosnt need to shut off is emotions. He's saying this is stupid, but you know whats a better idea? FOOD!!!

    General CommentWow. Such honesty. It's funny how at first these songs seem like collections of randomness with a funky synth beat. But when you look at them there's actual substance.

    And burritos are always good break up food.

    General Commentthis song is obviously about the power glove, since every song they write is about nintendo and horse the band is actually an anagram for super mario bros.

    General Commentgettin real tired of this constant nerdy bullshit NES talk surrounding this band. I'm pretty sure they are as well. Probably why they turned so weird and made an album about fucking Pizza. So shut up you nerds, this band has potential to be good again. And this song is about the lead singer wishing he was a robot because of how weird and goofy looking he is. Like one of those substitue teachers who is rumored to be a 3 time sex offender.
