‘Metal‘, by Gary Numan. Trent Reznor made a cover of this song for the ‘Things falling apart‘ EP. Numan himself said the cover was better than the original track. I like both.
Gary Numan – Metal
We’re in the building where they make us grow
And I’m frightened by the liquid engineers
My Mallory heart is sure to fail
I could crawl around the floor just like I’m real
The sound of metal
I want to be you
I should learn to be a man
Plug me in
And turn me on
Oh, everything is moving
I need my treatment it’s tomorrow they send me
Singing I am an American
Picture this, if I could make the change
I’d love to pull the wires from the wall
And who are you?
And how can I try?
Here inside I like metal
All I know
Is no one dies
I’m still confusing love with need
