Flesh Mechanic (Demo, 1995)


He tries to embrace her 
she wants him to race her 
he needs a laser to get it through her skull 
means and lies and hatreds 
tears that fall in sequence 
cold caress 
imprints 
conversation growing dull 

Says he's a poet 
lousy protozoan 
and he kisses ass for free 
I took a vow of silence 
when he tries to talk to me 
I just turn on the tv 

He tries to impress her, mentally undress her 
it takes more to possess her 
but in his pocket lies a hole 
he's got a thousand talents 
charisma by the bagful 
aristocratic parents 
a rebel with a heart of gold 

Says he's a poet 
this time he's gonna blow it 
'cause he's dancing with his ego 
I took a vow of silence 
when he reads his work to me 
I swallow words like a placebo 

He's strutting with your flesh mechanic 
gets him in a panic 
he's wasting time 
'cause everybody is a star in his eyes 

Careful not to give your favours 
to your lonesome fucked-up neighbours 
I had one who sent me her heart 
in a tupperware container 
all the movies in my head 
they flicker with my bleeding heart 
a careless slipping of the tongue 
on just another private part 

Blatant search for 
stoned affection 
fights the rust that 
breeds infection 
meet me at the 
intersection 
don't forget your 
fuel injection 

He's strutting with your flesh mechanic 
gets him in a panic 
he's wasting time 
'cause everybody is a star 
in his eyes 

You think this love is bona fide 
you're being taken for a ride 
wrap your lip around your head 
and slowly blow yourself away.
