Metal
Gary Numan Lyrics


We're in the building
Where they make us grow
And I'm frightened by
The liquid engineers
Like you.

My Mallory heart
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 could 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 could make the change
I'd love to pull the wires from the wall
Did you?

And who are you
And how can I try
Here inside I like metal
Aren't you

All I know
Is no-one dies
I'm still confusing love with need.

Unbelievable!!

Steve Upisleeve

Agreed, and his whole take on machines that envy humans and want to become them challenges sci fi itself. Brilliant. Some of his lines are profound, and though stated by the machines, could go for us as well....such as, "I'm still confusing love with need." Again...brilliant. We're def on the same page, FA. Props.

@Asenath I don’t know.... he read some Crowley, who always said every man and woman is a star... and in the song Black Star he goes through all the stars he is not and says he is a black star, maybe it’s a transcendent moment.
