Shellac – Copper lyrics

Copper, let us take you to a furnace where we'll break you, fire's so big and
Pretty, you could cry,
As a buckle, you could ask me what was wrong with me before -
Did I need the silver to be suitable?
Copper, I have a use for you, it's easy work and it suits you,
Dazzled dirty beauty, you must know
Copper is a conductor and makes for decent cooking,
Dazzled by your beauty still, you know,
Plated or anodized, you even fool a layman's eyes,
Presentable though you might be, it's unwise to try to fight me.
Copper - you'll never be gold. *David Burrows
