about

Sometimes we feel like inanimate objects, but sometimes it's the objects that end up being made of stronger material...

lyrics

A part of me feels so happy
But the rest feels so, so sad
And maybe all this is worth it
For seconds of what we once had
All despite of what I know

A part me feels enamored
But the rest feels so betrayed
And maybe this time I’m cornered
I’ll remember how I was made
All in spite of what I know
It’s tough to see where eyes can slowly grow

You’re take-a take-a taking you’re always take-a taking
(Cha-ching cha-ching)
You’re take-a take-a taking you’re always take-a taking
(Cha-ching cha-ching)
You’re taking me out of a brand new box
Just to see how it moves, how it bends how it talks
You’re taking me out of a brand new box
And you bruise all my limbs and you pull on my locks

I stand in a row of millions
And they all look just like me
So if she feels so familiar
Why can’t you just get up and leave?
All despite of what I can see
It’s tough when your own soul is just a dream

You’re take-a take-a taking you’re always take-a taking
(Cha-ching cha-ching)
You’re take-a take-a taking you’re always take-a taking
(Cha-ching cha-ching)
You’re taking me out of a brand new box
Just to see how it moves, how it bends how it talks
You’re taking me out of a brand new box
And you bruise all my limbs and you pull on my locks

And who really cares about itty bitty pieces of plastic?
When you melt it all down it’ll eventually become elastic
And who really cares about itty bitty pieces of plastic?
When you melt it all down it’ll eventually become elastic
It’s fantastic, you’ll see!
