BAD MEMORY

I'VE GOT A STRANGE WORLD BETWEEN THESE EARS
IT HASN'T CHANGED IN SO MANY YEARS
YOU SEE, I'VE GOT SOME BAD MEMORY
I KNOW I'M ONLY HALF OF WHAT I USED TO BE

I'M GLUED TO THE GROUND LIKE A CONCRETE SLAB
I'M LOCKED IN THIS SHELL LIKE AN OBSOLETE HERMIT CRAB
I NEED COMPONENTS RE SOLDERED
BUT, I KNOW YOU DON'T WANT TO BE BOTHERED...

I'M FADING
AND TIME FLIES ON BY
IF I COULD, I SWEAR
I WOULD CRY

ALL THIS BLOOD IN MY VEINS IS ELECTRICITY
AND ALL THE THOUGHTS IN MY BRAIN ARE BINARY
IT'S A HARD THING FOR SOME TO TRY AND GRASP
I SEE THE FUTURE AS CLEARLY AS I SEE THE PAST.

I'M FADING
AND TIME FLIES ON BY
IF I COULD, I SWEAR
I WOULD CRY

I'M NOT WORTH SAVING
MY LIFE'S JUST A LIE
IF I COULD, I SWEAR
I WOULD TRY
