Lyrics

[Verse 1]
You're aware as I am that you've never been the sharpest knife
Perfect on the surface but the circuitry is wrong inside
I leer every day but I've never once seen you cry
Six feet deep in excuses till I'm buried alive

[Pre-Chorus]
I'm just made of flesh and bone
Born into a world of drones
Wires wrapped around my neck
Survivor of the wreck

[Chorus]
Yeah, yeah!
The smile you keep is breaking your teeth
Not me 'cause I'm not made of metal
Yeah, yeah!
There's life when I breathe
There's blood when I bleed
I'm free 'cause I'm not made of metal
I'm ready to go
Walk through what I'm supposed to do
I'm better than gold 'cause I'm not made of metal
Yeah, yeah!
I carry the crown, no slick to the sound
I'm free 'cause I'm not made of metal

[Verse 2]
Engine is blown like a car on the side of the road
If you'd want a lie then the advertisement's such are told
Your heart's a ticking time bomb while the rest of you is rust and rot
I'm the queen of the ruin and you'll never claim the life I've got

[Pre-Chorus]
I'm just made of flesh and bone
Born into a world of drones
Wires wrapped around my neck
Survivor of the wreck

[Chorus]
Yeah, yeah!
The smile you keep is breaking your teeth
Not me 'cause I'm not made of metal
Yeah, yeah!
There's life when I breathe
There's blood when I bleed
I'm free 'cause I'm not made of metal
I'm ready to go
Walk through what I'm supposed to do
I'm better than gold 'cause I'm not made of metal
Yeah, yeah!
I carry the crown, no slick to the sound
I'm free 'cause I'm not made of metal

[Bridge]
Here we spy, and spark your heart again
Cleaned it in, I know your number now
When we starve, spark your heart again
Spark your heart again
Spark your heart again

[Chorus]
Yeah, yeah!
The smile you keep is breaking your teeth
Not me 'cause I'm not made of metal
Yeah, yeah!
There's life when I breathe
There's blood when I bleed
I'm free 'cause I'm not made of metal
I'm ready to go
Walk through what I'm supposed to do
I'm better than gold 'cause I'm not made of metal
Yeah, yeah!
I carry the crown, no slick to the sound
I'm free 'cause I'm not made of metal
