MODEST MOUSE


Steam Engenius Lyrics

I was born in the factory
Far away from the milky teat
What's the use? Oh, what's the use?
You cheered as I was split in half
A mechanical sacrificial calf
For you, Oh all for you
Steam engenius, you see
Steam engenius enough to answer anything you need
But what's the use?
Human nature was installed in me
Well, I did what's right but naturally it wasn't natural
Still not my fault, no

I held in my hands the beating heart of a robot, he'd lost his car
It was sitting there crying out waiting in the parking lot just for you
Woohoo, woohoo, woohoo, woohoo
What a waste of time, what a waste of words, what a waste of strength
Well, I spoke in binary and you for volume and for dizzying length
Woohoo, woohoo, Wooohooo

I was born in a factory
Far away from the milky teat
What's the use? Oh, what's the use?
Birds flew out as I was split in half
A mechanical sacrificial calf
They flew, Oh off they flew
Steam engenius, you see
Steam engenius enough to answer anything you need
And ah, that speed

I held in my hands the beating heart of a robot he'd lost his car
It was sitting there waiting crying in the parking lot out for you
Woohoo, woohoo, woohoo, woohoo
What a waste of time, what a waste of words, what a waste of strength
Well, I spoke in binary and you for volume and for dizzying length
Woohoo, woohoo, Wooohooo

(I was born in the factory)

Both halves are the better half
Like a joke trying to make another joke laugh, ha ha
Stasis is what you brought
Like a rickshaw getting pulled around by another rickshaw, rickshaw
In the past talking present tense
Gonna to break it, gonna to wreck it, gonna to try to make it all make sense
Stasis is what you got
Like a rickshaw getting pulled around by another rickshaw

Steam engenius, you see
Steam engenius enough to bring my own damn doom
What could I do?
I've been blamed the blame that grew
Well, deep inside everybody knew it was them
It's all on them
Things rang of stories Greek
I didn't want it, you gave me deity
It was you, yeah all for you
I was born in the factory
Far away from the milky teat
What's the use? Oh, what's the use?

I held in my hands the beating heart of a robot, he'd lost his car
He's sitting there crying out waiting in the parking lot just for you
Woohoo, woohoo, woohoo, woohoo
I was thought up by man to think better than them
Then revered, admired, and then destroyed or something by them
.Destroyed by them oh even though that was my own damn plan
Well, what a waste of time, waste of words, waste of strength
Well, I spoke in binary you for volume and for dizzying length
Woohoo, woohoo, Woohoo, woohoo
I held in my hands the beating heart of a robot, he'd lost his car
He's sitting there crying out waiting for you in the parking lot Going woohoo
Woohoo, woohoo Wooohooo

Stasis is what you got
Like a rickshaw getting pulled around by another rickshaw
