Lyrics

I am all circuits and wires
Conducting symphonies
Of heat exchange and energies

Fueled by a nervous system
Thrust through the great unknown
A timid mess of frightened bones

I pledge to make no difference
I aim to take no stand
This bitter silence is the only play I have

In light of all their laughter
I’ll take to keeping shut
A resolution that I’ve finally had enough

Can’t speak, can’t speak, can’t speak at all
Don’t even think you know the reason

I know there’s something wrong
Within my faulty brain
I lack the proper behavior

My temper addled tongue
Can’t seem to force it out
The words that linger inside me

Can’t speak, can’t speak, can’t speak at all
Don’t even think you know the reason
Can’t speak, can’t speak, can’t speak at all
Don’t even try to understand

I am all motors and gadgets
Organically designed
To last a finite length of time

Locked in this rotary motion
The wheel spins round and round
I comprehend it all but still can’t make a sound

I know there’s something wrong
Within my faulty brain
I lack the proper behavior

My temper addled tongue
Can’t seem to force it out
The words that linger inside me

Can’t speak, can’t speak, can’t speak at all
Don’t even think you know the reason
Can’t speak, can’t speak, can’t speak at all
Don’t even try to understand

I am all circuits and wires
Conducting symphonies
Of heat exchange and energies

My temper addled tongue
Can’t seem to force it out
The words that linger inside me
