lyrics

Pass me that soldering gun
I know what to do
Red LEDs under her cheeks
Make her eyes green, not blue

She’ll talk in code
In javascript, C++, Python, maybe
But I don’t mind
I’ve needed someone to talk to lately

prototype
so my type
flawless data
still in beta

She’s built exactly to
My specifications
A deity designed for me
Soul Mate 2.1

With all the traits
I’ve looked for in one container
even still
She really couldn’t feel plainer

There’s no recognition. No love in her eyes
don’t recognize cognitive signs.
zeros and ones put her hand into mine
Her skin like marble her grip like a vice

What have I done?
My darling exchanged for this
Callous automaton

Gone all gone
Left here with only a husk
Of a lover

Designed desire
empty shell
I have created
My own living hell

Doing it yourself
Always turns out bad
Schematics can not
rebuild what had

No luck
Self-destruct

I’ll try
Harder next time
To work out
The little glitches we find

There's no
simple solution
No shortcut
No substitution

I’ll try
Hard to work on
Being patient
On days when you’re gone

Forgive me, sorry
I’m just so damn
Sick of waiting on
Your fucking program
