Lyrics

Time to put the ear-covers on! No!

Born to multiply
Born to gaze into night skies
All you want is one more Saturday
But look here, until then
They're gonna buy your life's time
So keep your wick in the air
And your feet in the fetters till the day
We come in doing cartwheels
We all cut out by ourselves
And your shape on the dance floor
Will have me thinking such filth I'll gouge my eyes

You'd be damned to be one of us girl
Faced with the dodo's conundrum
I felt like I could just fly
But nothing happened every time I tried

A duotone on the wall
The selfless fool who hoped he'd save us all
Never dreamt of such sterile hands
You keep them folded in your lap
And raise them up to beg for scraps
You know, he's holding you down
With the tips of his fingers just the same

Will you be pulled from the ocean
But just a minute too late?
Or changed by a potion
We'll find a handsome young mate
For you to love

You'll be damned to pining through the windowpanes
You know you'd trade your life for any ordinary Joe's
Do it now or grow old
Your nightmares only need a year or two to unfold!

Been alone since you were 21
You haven't laughed since January
You try and make like this is so much fun
But we know it to be quite contrary

Damned to be one of us, girl
Facing the android's conundrum
I felt like I should just cry
But nothing happens every time I take one on the chin
You're Himmler in your cote
You don't know how long I have been
Watching the lantern dim
Starved of oxygen
So give me your hand
And let's jump out the window
