We're in the building where they make us grow
And i'm frightened by the liquid engineers
Like you

But my reality is sure to fail
I could crawl around the floor just like i'm real
Like you

The sound of metal i want to be you
I should learn to be a man
Like you

Plug me in and turn me on
Oh everything is moving

I need my treatment it's tomorrow they send me
Singing "i am an american"
Do you?

Picture this if i shoud make the change
I'd like to pull the wires from the wall
Did you?

And who are you and how can i try
Here inside i like the metal
Don't you?

All i know is no one dies
I'm still confusing love with need
