Lyrics

We're in the building where they make us grow
And I'm frightened by the liquid engineers
Like you

My Mallory heart is sure to fail
I could crawl around the floor just like I'm real
Like you

The sound of metal
I want to be you
I should learn to be a man
Like you

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"
Do you?

Picture this, if I could make the change
I'd love to pull the wires from the wall
Did you?

And who are you?
And how could I try?
Here inside, I like metal
Did you?

And who are you?
And how could I try?
Here inside, I like metal
Don't you?

All I know
Is no one dies
I'm still confusing love with need

Reception

"Metal" was met with confused reception from fans and the media, expecting it to be a new single. With the recent announcement of her second album "Am I A Girl?", fans expected Poppy to release the album's first single rather than a standalone cover. As such, it was met with fewer streams and views than most official Poppy singles.

Trivia

  • This is the first Poppy cover of the "Poppy" era that was officially released as a single.
  • When the audio was released on YouTube, people who had Poppy.Church open would be redirected to the video, specifically at 9:36 PM PST.
  • The official instrumental was leaked in September of 2018.[1]
