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.

This track is 40 years old. And the man who wrote it is a genius.

Just heard the riff midway through foreigner's "Urgent" extended version from 1981.. Blew my mind!

I remember watching him in an interview when he explained that his musical formal education is almost non-existent. He would simply just start making music. True legend
