my heart is built of bakelite
my heart is built of bakelite
my heart is built of bakelite
it'll stay under the ground a million years
my heart is built of bakelite
it don't bend and it don't break and it don't shear

my eyes are like a stoplight
my eyes are like a stoplight
my eyes are like a stoplight
they go red and i slow down and check the mirrors
my eyes are like a stoplight
they flash pictures in the dark of faces feared

my brain it's just a beehive
my brain it's just a beehive
my brain it's just a beehive
honeycombed and sickly sweet but still austere
my brain it's just a beehive
full of drones that hum and buzz till i can't hear
