"Lock"


Psyche Corp.


I don't let myself be touched
I shape my body like a lock
to keep things
out

That is why I cannot look into your mouth
because you've swallowed the key to me
you've swallowed
the key to me

And oh, the copper in your blood could empty our skies of angels
and oh instead, it's killing you
I know

If only I could be ordinary,
you would love me, I'm sure.
But I'm twisted mercenary
and you deserve a simpler world.

And it's true that my birth may not have been recorded
and my ancestors did not conceive
but my sisters have numbered in thousands
stored silent in our factory

I've survived all these battles believing
that your god could fail to see through
my weakness of never belonging
to innocent stories of youth

But you grieve too soon.
You grieve too soon.

And oh, the copper in your blood could empty our skies of angels
and oh instead, it's killing you
I know

If only I could be ordinary,
you would love me, I'm sure.
But I'm twisted mercenary
and you deserve a simpler world.

For my sisters who fled into boxes
afraid of a world they could not comprehend
and kindness of strangers you always distrusted--
I ask you, my sisters, to live once again

Oh if only I could be ordinary,
you would love me, I'm sure.
But I'm twisted mercenary
and you deserve a simpler world.

Oh if only I could be ordinary,
you would love me, I'm sure.
But I'm twisted mercenary
and you deserve a simpler world.

Oh if only I could be ordinary,
you would love me, I'm sure.
