Lyrics[edit | edit source]
I am awake I am walking in this scene You say to me "I am only a machine." Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah I shake my head: "You are the best friend that I've ever had." I am asleep I am dreaming in this scene I've got a crow, and the Crow's name is Marlene She has no wings she was never a "Fly bird." She was the worst friend that I've ever had Let's meet in a dream And I will laugh because you are only a silly old machine Nobody I know cares about a dumb machine Lets meet in a dream And I will laugh because you are only a silly old machine Nobody I know cares about a dumb machine You say that "that was mean" That only I would say so many things that you would find obscene To watch my tongue so I don't hurt nobody else Then I turn to her Her face is screwed up in this agonizing, painful, crying stare. Her head begins to spark as water lines her face. I loved my machine I didn't mean to break her plastic body Wasn't this a dream? I wouldn't have said that if this was not a dream!
