about

This song is partially inspired by and indebted to the song Memories Can't Wait by Talking Heads.

lyrics

You're an artificial man
What's a heart? You don't understand
You were made in a petri dish
By some human hand
You developed in a tube
Vitamins you ate over chewed
Still you have to convince yourself
When totally nude

Take a walk through the valley of shadows
Take a walk through the peaceful meadows
With a happy hand
Take a walk where the water is shallow
Take a look where the sun is hollow
and you'll understand

You're a judgemental son
You criticize and blame everyone
Still it is the age old case of
Left brain tongue
I'm a frame made of bone
Hit me with a tree made of stone
I may break but crack a smile
Whenever you moan

It's the need for control
Dragging angels down in your hole
What you hate you compensate with ego
I'm not angry anymore
Guess i'll just forgive like before
It's been fun but now you're fired
There's the door
