from the first limited edition plexi-disc single from A Severe Joy


I am a real machine
I am a real machine
Complete with moving parts
and a detachable heart

I have a fragile mind
A severely fragile mind
I'm pre-programmed to fail
Subject to collapse

I have no self-control
I'm hardly confident
Hardly confident
You want me to let go
Well offer me a plan
Come give me your hand
You want me to say no
Well I don't think I can
I don't think I can
I have no self-control
Reattach my heart
Please reattach my heart


from No. 1 - (Limited Edition Single), track released February 21, 2012
